Greetings from sunny California

We woke up on Monday morning to this

My parents yard/pasture

The Bunny Boo having fun with the doggies

The vegetable garden

While N had to go support his unemployed wife, I and most of the family spent that first day trying not to freeze to death and did a lot of this:

It was beautiful and such a big surprise. Surprised like all the men in America were when they learned that their beloved Megan Fox has toe's for thumbs

The snow made the roads ridiculous! The main road that my parent’s house is off of, looked like something out of a movie! Trees were down in the middle of the roads & bushes were just hanging off of power lines. I don't mean just little wispy tree's either. I mean hundreds of years old oak trees. So our power was out for a total of 2.5 days and I have to say thank God N and I have a gym with a shower cause we were gettin ripe! It was a lot of fun just having candles and everyone gathering around the fire for warmth, er I mean fun, and living like the pioneer's did. It made for an early bedtime since I couldn't watch The Hills or my new personal fav, Jersey Shore.
So ladies and gents, another year of brown hair is coming to an end. For some reason, the blonde in my hair pokes through the brown no matter how many times I go sit in the chair (and pull out the credit card), and my roots are starting to show now that I am OD'ing on prenatal and biotin. My hair grows FAST which is what I want, but my wallet and N are not as understanding to the monthly hair appointments. So, I will be seeing my hair magician sometime before this month ends to get a bajillion blonde highlights put all over my hair. N says he is ready for his blonde wifey again. He has decided that he likes me best blonde. He has a true appreciation for the California girl design: D

Another topic I would like to discuss with you peeps: working out! Since I am still unemployed, I will be making my fitness a first thing in the morning type of deal, like I did when we first got back to California. With the power being out and it being so cold and crazy on the roads these past couple of days, I only went for a short run and went to the gym once and ran a 5K and lifted some weights, so I am most def slacking. On top of eating take out most nights since we didn't have power. So the rest of my week will look like this:

Tomorrow- shred with Jillian in the morning & hit the gym for a nice 3 mile run after my INTERVIEW (Scroll down to the next paragraph to read about it)

Friday - I have nothing planned except getting things ready for Bestie since we were 4 years olds baby shower on Saturday. So I will be going to the gym for a 1 hour yoga class and doing a nice 1 mile run after. Then when I get home - SHRED!

Saturday - Run 3 miles outside before the baby shower so I don't feel guilty when I drink a few insanely delicious margaritas (yes, you read that right: margaritas (non for the mother to be) at a baby shower)

Sunday - A brisk 2 mile run prior to church and then......WE ARE GETTING OUR CHRISTMAS TREE!!!! SO SO SO SO EXCITED!! I have waited for this day all year!!

Now the interview?! you may be asking yourself? Yes, I have an interview with a promising company tomorrow at 10 am! If I get this job, N and I will most def be moving into our apartment & the benefits of this position will be way better than the benefits my previous job offered, so I am praying that I get this. Not only that, but its in a beautiful area AND it will only be 1 exit up the freeway from our apartment and since I am always looking forward, I yahoo! mapped it. It will be approximately 12 minutes from our house, boo ya! Prayers this way please :)

I will be sure to fill you all in on the job tomorrow lovelies
