Seeking: organized home, a doggy door, and internet access

Will provide: a happy woman.

It's been crazy! Work is busy. The home is currently a work in progress. I have been so disconnected from the blogworld. I'm at work right now, where I should be doing some lesson planning since I'm SO busy, but I needed to get this out there. I will be back...soon. I hope.

I've got lots of pictures. So far, we're loving living in SF. It is wonderful! We love our place and the location. We're not driving as much as we did in P-town, the doggy are loving the pet friendly environment, and we're having fun when we can. It's been all around a great change. Oh, and the hubby just loves his new job!

But, for now, I'd like to give you a little glimpse into one of our running stops.

{the boys and I reach this hilltop park on our run, enjoy the view, the grass, and turn around for our super hilly run home}
love it.

City Living: Inspiration

At work. No time for words.

{I'm thinking, "I want to keep it pretty neutral. How about a sisal rug?}
{I love this room in HB. I'm thinking, "Sisal rug and patterned rugs? yeah.}

City Living: Part 1

Back for an update on what's going on with the big move. So...we found a place! Not just any place, but a beautiful, fabulous neighborhood, I could live here forever kind of place. Well, maybe not forever, but definitely for a while. At least right now. =)

We're going to in a part of SF called Noe Valley. Almost right in the middle of the city; according to the map we've got. It's supposed to be one of the, if not THE sunniest place in the city. It's got nice wide streets, lots of cool restaurants and shops, and it's close to Golden Gate park; which, I have a feeling is going to become one of our favorite places to be, especially with the two doggies.

We got the keys on Saturday and took some pictures to help us figure out where to have the movers place our furniture (and of course so I could share here). While we were there we discovered a really great recreational center with tennis courts, an indoor basketball court, daycare, and a gated doggie park just two blocks from our place. We also found out our favorite grocery store is opening just a mile a way and just in time for our move, Wednesday! Also, the hubby's shuttle pick-up for work is only 4 blocks away! We cannot believe how fortunate we are! We're really excited (if you hadn't noticed my overuse of the exclamation point!).

We are just soo thrilled at the way things are going for us. Everything is falling into place almost effortlessly. We've been doing a lot of things on our side to make sure our transition to city living is going to go really well and we are almost there.

Now, here is the big reveal.

So, I know they're kinda out of order, but you get the idea. Three bedrooms and 2.5 baths in the city. Yay!
