After almost 3 months of Christian living 45 min from San Fran we finally got to take a day and go! It was awesome...almost like a more civilized New York. We took the BART from where we live straight into downtown San Fran. The BART is like a smaller version of the subway in NY. We walked up to the street and bam right in front of me stood the biggest Forever21 I have ever seen! 3 stories high...me and Christian were in heaven. After that we cruised over to Nordstrom then a couple others of our favorites. Then we got to meet up with some of Christians childhood friends from AZ. Kami and Jill Christiansen...it could not have made the trip more perfect...they luckily drove a car so we got to hit up some of the must see spots! First stop was Haight Street...could not have been more thrilled to be there... Hippyville is more like what it should be called. There were vintage and thrift shops a mile long! I highly recommend if you come. Then it was off to the Golden Gate Bridge....Way better in person! Jill is an amazing photographer and got some pics of us! Last but not least we went to "Fishermans Wharf" where I saw more fish than I have ever seen before! San Fran was a huge success only downfall...next time I will remember to dress more appropriately! San Fran in July= FREEZING!
Wow...it has been way too long! Let's see so much has happened since I last blogged. Christian is still selling in San Jose, I am still loving my job as a teacher in the summer...who knew work could be so fun! I have bounced back and forth from Cali to Las Vegas the whole summer....... BECAUSE......Drum roll please!
We are moving to Las Vegas...and we couldn't be more excited! Christian was excepted to UNLV and I got a teaching job at Foothill Montessori! We are looking to buy a house and everything has really worked out too perfectly it's almost scary.
Looking for a house: It was fun the first 2 days...now I don't really care what it looks like or if it's ugly, smells....I DON'T CARE...anything will do! So exhausting... But we will be oh so happy when we finally have one!
UNLV: Christian has finally decided he would like to take after his fabulous grandpa, father, and now brother and be a DENTIST! I can't say I was too upset. With this he would really like to go to the UNLV dental school so we have decided to transfer to UNLV in hopes to have an easier chance of getting into the dental program in the near future. Fingers Crossed! Go REBELS!
Foothill Montessory: One condition with moving was I had to have a job... no exceptions! This being said I never thought I even had a chance... especially with a teaching job! Miracles do happen...I was offered a job here as a "primary teacher" 4-6 year olds. Coming from a Kindergarten position I felt like this was right up my ally! I start this fall and couldn't be more excited to have this opportunity.
Family: One of the biggest perks of moving to Las Vegas is I get to be neighbors with my best friends! Yes my family! And... 4 hours from the Otteson's, 4 hours from Cali, and 5 hours from our previous home...UTAH!
In all we have a lot to be thankful for and can't wait for this next step in our lives!
