San Fran Part 1

I think I should start off my first vacation post with the most important pictures..... FOOD!!!!!!! Literally after we got there we headed over to the San Fran Ferry Building which was used in the 1910 Worlds Fair, the building was the coolest! And inside is the Hog Island Oyster Co and it was TOO die for!!! So literally what I had was Oysters 2 ways..... open, fresh, in the half shell and then an Oyster PoBoy! It was so delish I can literally taste this meal right now!
 I also got us reservations about 6 weeks early at Tyler Florence's place Wayfare Tavern and sadly he wasn't there that night! BUT.... the meal was so good! Matt and I split the 60 day dry aged Ribeye for 2 and it was so good, Matt was in steak lovers heaven!
 We also HAD to have Sushi in San Fran, I mean Colorado is land-locked so this was most likely our freshest Sushi meal and it was so good! Yes, we spent a pretty penny but it was worth every dime! And who knew I would LOVE Halibut Nigiri so much.... Literally I had to re-order it 3 times! haha!
 Matt and I love sports and seeing Stadiums so we went on a Tour of AT&T Park which was really neat since we went to a game while we were there also! When we did our tour they were setting up for an AC/DC concert... wish we could have gone to that!
 We went to the Giants vs Diamondbacks game and it was a perfect night with the field overlooking the bay!

This is the view from the TOP of Lombard Street AKA the "Most crookedest street in the world"!
 You can also see Alcatraz from Lombard street and the weather was beautiful .......
 This was my favorite house I saw.... isn't it just charming?
 So we did the Tourist thing and went to Ghirardelli Square but I am going to be honest with you... super disappointing! I mean ya, there was the chocolate shop but other than that it is literally just a sign you are going to see........
 Puppies of the SEA!!!!!!! Of course I fell in love.......
One day Matt had meetings all day so I took a tour of Chinatown which was so fun, I have read a few Historical Fiction books set here so to see the pages come to life was amazing for me!
 During the tour I went to a Fortune Cookie factory, Chinese Herbal Medicine Shop, Markets, Shops and finished the morning off with an authentic Dim Sum lunch!
We flew out a few days early so just Matt and I could spend the days just us but Sunday thru Wed was Farmers Topper Club. This was the banquet room after a wonderful dinner one night and Farmers had a really fun cover band playing for us!
 I was so Happy Matt qualified for Topper Club and that we were able to celebrate his accomplishments!

Stay tuned for more posts this week!

Tales of Infertility...

Hi Guys! I am back from Vacation and this week I will have vacation updates for you AND a few Fall decorating posts.... so get excited! But you know what really kicks off a Monday right? A Debbie Downer post..... hahaha!
SO I wanted to update you all on our infertility journey, last time I posted I explained in this post HERE how we found out we won't be able to get pregnant without some sort of doctors help, so check out that post for more information.
Now the update is that last month we did our first IUI cycle and this picture below is me, on the doctors table after the procedure "relaxing" while Matt was playing on his phone a few feet away from me..... so ya, conceiving a baby is super sexy Y'all......And we are true Okies, I may not have any pants on but I am wearing my BOOMER SOONER shirt because it was Game Day! :)
But as of this weekend we found out that it didn't take. I am not pregnant. And I do have 2 friends where it worked the first time and 2 friends that took a couple of tries so this isn't completely unexpected just a HUGE bummer. This time around finding out we are not pregnant was the worst yet because of all the MONEY, time, medicine and everything that went into this time. Literally an entire month of our lives (or mine) was spent in the doctors office. So ya, it hurts but I have processed it and we are moving on.
Ok..... what now? Well I got to the doctor in actually 1 hour to start the WHOLE process over again. So wish us luck!

Toppers Club

I have exciting news and it happened a little bit ago but it kept slipping my mind to post about........
SO Matt made Farmers Insurance Toppers Club this year! What does that mean? Well it means he is among the TOP 10% of ALL District Managers and Agents in the company! Which also means that Farmers is treating us to an all expense vacation to 1 of 5 locations they have picked and we picked.....
YUP!! Hello San Fran...... we leave this Friday and will be gone for 5 days!!! Matt and I are actually going 2 days early to spend with just each other before the actual event starts on Sunday. Here are a few things we already have in the books......
Giants Game
Golf and Spa day at the Ritz, Half Moon Bay
Day trip to the Redwoods
Tour of Chinatown followed by Dim Sum lunch! (?spelling?)

I am excited and Sunday-Tuesday night is all get fancy, eat and drink at the Farmers dinners to celebrate the agents and DM's who made it! We are also going to be seeing a lot of our Farmers friends from Oklahoma which we are excited about too!

The bad news? I am having a hard time getting excited because of how much I am going to miss all 4 of our animals/babies! For real, I am going to cry. We are having a lovely person stay here at the house and I know they will be cared for but I worry about.......
Will she know their quirks
Will they rebel and crap in the house? (yes)
How mad will the cat be?

I know I know.... I sound crazy but I am beside myself with worry.
ANYHOO...... Follow me on Instagram and FB because I am sure I will OVER post while I am away!! And I got some super cute new outfits ala' Anthro for the trip! But, of course! :)

Seven Falls

I am going to let todays pictures speak for themselves mostly... Saturday we all took a day trip to Colorado Springs where we toured the Garden of the Gods, saw the United States Air Force Academy, visited the Broadmoor and toured Seven Falls also known as the "Most Glorious Mile in ALL of Colorado"... really it is, look it up! We all had a wonderful day and when we got home we had the most wonderful sunset waiting for us over my house!

Family Visit Part 1!

Labor Day weekend is always something I look forward to since we moved away from Oklahoma because it means my family is coming to see ME!!!!!! YAY! We had a great 3 days with everyone and of course I filled it with good fun and great food!!!
And the animals are always excited to see everyone too..... Oscar loves his Auntie Marissa!
 This is a great picture of my Mom and Sister huh? And that yellow door isn't too shabby either! haha!

 Friday we did a little Guys and Girls day and the guys spent the day on the Golf Course, Matt is really excited that Marissa's fiance Ryan loves playing golf as much as he does!
And while the guys golfed the girls shopped..............
 My Dad's Birthday is always the weekend before Labor Day so we always have a belated celebration when they are here and this year instead of going out we broke in my new dining room! We also gave Dad his new Birthday presents.... a new tradition of a Broncos weekend! Matt and I are taking Mom and Dad to the Broncos vs Chiefs game in November and we all can't wait!
 We were so exhausted each day we had movie night at home every night and the dogs loved dessert time..... this is what happens when you are the last person to finish........
 We took a little detour one day to the Broncos Training Facility at Dove Valley which was fun and who knew.... it is so close to my house!
 And keeping with the sports themed weekend we went to take in an afternoon Rockies game!

 It was perfect weather to cheer on the home team followed by dinner out in Denver!

Stay tuned tomorrow for our Day Trip to Colorado Springs with the family!!!!!!!
