The Next Chapter


20140702-160828-58108497.jpg
Our time in Hawaii is coming to an end. So far it’s been the perfect getaway (minus the fact I’ve had to work a few hours each day). Be sure to check out all our photos on Instagram #trekwiththeTs. We’ve had a blast exploring hidden beaches and discovering new places all to ourselves, eating a little of everything, fooling around on the family farms, and finding ourselves at the beach at least once a day. One day I will live here and the Mr. will be able to call it home once more.

The next chapter of our lives is starting! This weekend is the first wedding of the season for me and we drive to San Diego on Monday to start setting up our home. I can’t wait to do so many things and explore a whole new area of California. Life can’t get much better right now and I’m damn thankful for all the things we’ve been blessed with. Bring it on!

XOXO, MT

Oh Happy Day!

(Amber Interiors pretty much summed up EXACTLY what we’re planning for the newly decorated Mr. & Mrs. T residence to look like… how perfect! )

 

Cue the happy dance… we found a home in San Diego! We decided to go the safer route and rent at first. This place is seriously perfect for our needs and great as a place to make our home for the first year. Just 15 minutes from downtown San Diego, and 20 minutes to the beach, it was a major score! It’s a single story 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1 loft/office, laundry room, 2 car detached garage, enclosed patio, private front yard, newly updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and all new engineered maple hardwood floors!

A girl can dream while house hunting and this dream came true! Seriously, based on what’s available, pet friendly, and in budget? Slim pickings my friends. We jumped on this home as soon as we toured it. So now the countdown to moving in begins!

2 weeks left of working at the bakery – 3 weeks until we say goodbye to the Bay Area and vacation in AZ – 4 weeks until we spend 10 days in Hawaii – 5 weeks until the first wedding of our season – 6 weeks until we get the keys and move in to our new abode!

So much to look forward to in the next few weeks! Happy Friday!

Cali Turns 1!


 

 

 

I can’t believe she’s a year old! How time flies. We had a small celebration for her, a fancy new shark chew toy, cherry cow ear, doggie donut, and her favorite peanut butter honey icecream for her cake. Spoiled much? We rarely treat her besides a milk bone here and there so she was surely in doggie heaven! Hopefully, we’ll be able to gift her with a priceless present this summer… a yard! Stay tuned for more details on the house hunt!

Home Hopeful


It’s finally that time! After living in the SF Bay Area for two years, the time has come to submit our dream list of where we’d like to move to next. Our top five include places in Hawaii, San Diego, or Clearwater, Florida. We will find out sometime this winter! With all these ideas and what ifs going through my head I thought it’s only fitting to put together a post about how I plan to re-decorate our next home. The plan is to sell our current living room furniture and create a more traveled, colorful, global and tropical environment. A colorful rug, tropical house plants, and a nice outdoor living space are musts. How would you decorate your dream beach house if you had the chance?

I’ll need somewhere  to display my growing globe collection.
