we are heading to the bay area this afternoon to visit family and go to ikea. seriously. i'm like a kid the night before christmas. i can't wait for tomorrow at 9:30. IKEAAAAAAA! i love it. they have great stuff for great prices and another bonus: not very many people where we live have it because the closest ikea is 3+ hours away. woop!

we sign contract for the new house next thursday which means we are like 30 days from moving in. yessssss. i am more excited about this news than i am about ikea. i cannot wait to see the finished product. we picked all of the interior finishes, bought our own hardware, are buying all new furniture for the dining and living, we get a playroom for the kids and the list goes on. it's going to be amazing. the perfect start to 2015!

here's a little peak into what we've chosen for the new digs:

flooring will be wood throughout, tile in the bathrooms, carpet in the bedrooms. granite on all countertops. we will be ripping out the island granite for butcher block with a different sink and faucet. also the backsplash will be removed and subway tile put in its place. (we are changing things after escrow because of the prices. what the builder is charging is seriously outrageous)

the new dining table is West Elm, white modern mid-century. the chairs are Restoration Hardware mid-century danish design; wood with metal bases. we bought an elk horn chandelier for the living space and a farm house light for the dining room. i am going to remove all of the lights they provided and sell them. not my style, but very nice. 

seriously can't wait!!!!

kiddos are great. i think they are ready to get back into our norm routine. i think we all our. including my parents. 

last week i worked Sunset's Savor the Central Coast put on by visit san luis obispo and sunset magazine. my friend jolie is the head of the Vision Team and i got to be apart for the second year. it was SO much work but so awesome. we spent 4 days at santa margarita ranch and one day working at Hearst Castle which was amazing. so cool to be behind the scenes in such a historic place that is sought upon by millions of people traveling through. awesome experience.
