An Accidental Guest Room Redecorate

Why yes, you read that right a whole eight months after first decorating our guest room I decided to re-do the entire damn thing. Why? I found some super cool posters at a garage sale. Don’t always look to me for the best life choices. But, also because every time I passed the room I felt as if it didn’t have enough color and I just wanted the overall feel of the room to be a bit more grown up.

Saturday Afternoon at Auburn Quarry

So much fun! There’s great hiking trails, rock faces for climbing, and swimming to cool off after. What’s not to love?

Let’s Go Fly a Kite!

Oh man, was anyone else obsessed with Mary Poppins as a child? I must have driven my parents mad with how many times I watched and re-watched that movie.

Also, flying kites is the most relaxing way to spend a Saturday (✿◠‿◠)

Be Our Guest

At last! I’m finally posting pictures of our apartment’s freshly decorated guest room. Everyone may now sleep soundly at night knowing you will have your own room with an (extremely) comfortable air mattress with which to rest your weary head when you visit. I now give you leave to start moving around your vacation days and booking your flights.

In case anyone is wondering I got the template for the Wifi sign at Life Love Lauren.


Weekend Adventrue Through Haight-Asbury

Well, I owe everyone an apology because this post is a full day late. Why? Well because my weekend was filled with fantastic times gallivanting around Haight-Asbury with friends, which was super awesome and fun, but also sapped every ounce of writing energy out of me. Anywho, I figured I’d share some pictures of our adventures and of the guest room that is (slowly) coming together.

These first pictures were taken during our lovely walk from the 16th Street Mission BART station to Haight which was up a oh… 60 degree incline. No big deal, I just felt as if my lungs were on fire and collapsing in on themselves by the time we got to the peak of the mountainous hill.

The sign that greeted us at the summit

Once in Haight we stopped for food and drinks at Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery. You may notice a distinct lack of pictures of the Chicken Habanero Sausage I ordered. I have no excuse other than I was STARVING after our walk and practically inhaled it. The sausage and tomatillo salsa were super spicy, but were balanced perfectly by the cucumber avocado salad. It was seriously so fantastic. I was able to get a shot of Patrick’s beer and my Pomegranate Cider. Which tasted like candy, but wasn’t cloyingly sweet. Other than that we basically just wandered aimlessly around, ducking in and out of the millions of shops lining the streets.

Whilst shopping I bought a Labbit plush from Kidrobot and adorable postcards from Loved to Death to use as guest room decorations. My favorites were the ones of cat’s dressed up like people.
