Introducing a new regular post! One of the things that I'm really excited about is exploring new places to eat. I've been hearing lots about yummy grilled cheese trucks from friends in la, so I was so excited to see that portland has some of there own! Chris and I will definitely be going back there. Super fresh and yummy sandwiches! We were as impressed with the soup, it was really spicy! Even for Chris! But overall, the sandwiches are toasted to perfection and the top ingredients.

It's officially official! We are moving to Portland June 30, it's very exciting, scary, and sad all at the same time! The pictures aren't that great, there will be lots more once we are there! I'm already making mood boards to show how we'll be decorating. I love having a fresh, clean start! :)
It's a two bedroom home, with a front and back yard, garage, and finished attic.
*one mistake - it's not a basement! it's an attic. :) The bar across the middle is the railing for the stairs.*
It's in a quiet little area, a little farther out than we originally had wanted, but I think it will better as we are closer to freeways.
Now, I must get off the computer and onto packing!

I made this as I was waiting for Oh Happy Day to announce the winner of a trip to Paris. Once I was done, I found out the trip of a lifetime went to someone else. Oh well, I'll get there someday! Meanwhile, I'm going to enjoy the many pics of Paris on pinterest. Also, have you seen Midnight in Paris? Such a good movie and a perfect fix if you're pining for Paris, like me! :)

I'm embarrassed to even look at the date of my last blog post...I've been a bit MIA lately! I've decided to take a break to focus our big move and end of school. Last weekend, I enjoyed an amazing trip camping with many close friends. This weekend, Chris and I spent the weekend in Yosemite and Groveland with my family. We had a great time even though we were rained in for part of it. Now, in the next couple of weeks: I'm grading, writing my final report cards, packing my classroom, flying to Portland to find a house, flying back, packing up our RWC home and making the drive to PDX, and of course, unpacking and getting acclimated and settled! Needless to say, I've had a bit of a tough time, exciting, but challenging! Blogging and crafting has come to a standstill. I'm excited to continue blogging once we are in Portland. And I may post a few posts now and again, however, I expect to begin again in July! Expect many posts on our new travels around Portlandia!
For now, here are a few pics of the last few weeks:
Celebrating Jenni's BDay!
Cute Diaper Cakes! Baby Shower for THREE prego co-workers!
