Today was a great day. I called up the resort in Cabo and made our reservations for June 10th-14th. I cannot wait for our five days of pure bliss. So of course the first thing I thought of was swimsuits. I could use a new one and nows the perfect time. I went online and found these beauties at J.crew. I LOVE the little ruffles along the top. Now all I have to do is decide what color. Decisions Decisions.

So when Brian and I moved out here to California I knew it was inevitable that he would ask me to get a job. Which is Ok because I promised him I would, buuuut I wanted to put it off as long as possible. Then one night he brought it up and I got a little panicked. All I could do is imagine me slaving away at some uninspiring retail job all day long. For those of you that know me, I am quite the creative one and I absolutely love interior design and furniture. One of my favorite past times is online window shopping. Nothing is more painful then taunting myself with furniture and decorative goodness that is way beyond our budget. Why I do this, I will never know. I guess part of me would like to believe that if I look at it enough times it is sure to materialize right before my eyes. This has yet to happen. However I will continue dreaming until that day. So back to the dirty J word. After Brian brought up me get a job, I immediately started to think of things I could do that would enable me to put my creative tendencies to use. As I brainstormed I looked over at an old dresser that we had been given that I was meaning to redo. Thats when it hit me that I was going to flip furniture. In other words I am going to take old furniture and apply a fresh and fun coat of paint, some nifty knobs and other fun things and then resell it, hopefully for a decent profit. I made the proposition to Brian and as always, he said yes! Once again, this guy is way too good to me. So I was quick to work and I have finally completed my first piece. I absolutely love it. Part of me is actually pretty attached to this blue beauty. I wish I could keep it all for myself. However I cannot afford to think like this because, if I don't get my furniture sold then Brian will indeed make me get a job and I mean ANY job. I am convinced that if it came down to it, he would not protest me bagging groceries at the local grocery store. So for sale it is! The ad is up and I am not so patiently waiting for some responses. Wish me luck!

Ok, So about a month ago I came up with a brilliant plan to trick Mr. B into taking me on a vacation. I had to think of something I could do that would be worth rewarding me with this oh so beautiful trip. For those of you that know me I am obsessed with Fountain Diet Coke. It can't be any diet coke. It has to be fountain Diet Coke. Ok, If I am really desperate then I will take ANY diet coke. I mean my addiction has gotten to the point that if worst comes to worst I will indeed drink Diet Pepsi...shame on me. For whatever reason that bubbly, brown beverage makes my world that much brighter. For these reasons Brian calls it the Devil's brew. I have been telling him since we started dating that I was going to give up diet coke but of course I didn't. So as the images of sandy beaches ran through my mind, thats when it came to me that I was going to REALLY give up Diet Coke! So I timidly made my proposition and he agreed! He is just way too nice to me. Soooo by April 1st I have to have not touched a Diet Coke for a month. To add pressure to the situation our friends Dom and Karyn are coming and they are counting on it. So ladies and Gents, Victory will be mine come April 1st! I have included a few images of the resort to make you all jealous. Enjoy!
Yes it's true, I gave into the blog temptation. I avoided a Blog just like I avoided facebook, and we all know I gave into facebook a long time ago. I promised many of you in Utah that I would do this once we moved, so that you could keep up with us and our new life here in San Clemente. I miss you all somewhat..ok a lot, and I am going to work on convincing each and everyone of you to move out here. This is the place to be! Here with me and Mr.B! Enjoy our blog as we take you on a hysterical and oh so comical journey.
