Friday Favorites!

For those of you that regularly follow my blog, you heard that I am moving.  We moved from Southern California (the Inland Empire) to Northern California (Sacramento Area).  We were so incredibly happy when we drove down the Grapevine and saw the great Central Valley in front of us… it was full of orchards and fields of crops.  We totally love it.  A lot of people turn up their nose to the Central Valley but honestly, who can hate such a place where 1/4 of the Nation’s food is produced (seriously, I’m not making that number up!). One of my favorite road trip “games” to play while I’m bored is to “name that tree”… basically when you drive by a bunch a crop of trees you guess which type of trees are growing. Sounds lame but it kills hours of driving time.

But more importantly, our stuff has NOT arrived.  Why are moving companies so shady?  They picked up our stuff 1 week ago.  They said it would be delivered the next day.  And the next day rolled around. And then the next day. And the next day…. still no stuff!  AND ONE WEEK LATER (yes I’m yelling) STILL NO STUFF.  Good thing I personally took my computer and a week worth of clothes.  But seriously, I NEED MY STUFF!  It’s one thing to say “it will be delivered in a week” but it’s another thing to keep lying to us about which date it’s going to get here. How do they not know? It’s a 6 hour drive. It should’ve arrived same day.

heard it through the Grapevine 

Inside Out – the Movie

Since we have no stuff, we went to the movies for the first time in 8 months.  It’s a cute movie by Disney-Pixar about the different voices and emotions inside of your head.  It’s about a family who moves from the Midwest to San Francisco.  Guess what, the movers lose their stuff (uh, great, sounds like real life).  So inside of the mind of the little girl, we meet Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear, and Sadness.  During the new process, we learn that basically sometimes it’s okay to be Sad.  That’s the short story. I tried to sum it up… but just go see it. 

In the new house that we moved into, there are a lot of peach trees.   I immediately got the song from the 90s stuck in my head: “moving to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches”.  There are peaches coming out of our ears!

There are hundreds of rose bushes where we are at.  While we were waiting for some of our furniture to arrive, I put together this rose floral arrangement for fun.  These roses smell so good!

Remember two weeks ago I was super sad that Game of Thrones ended?  Well, I’m still sad but I have a new TV show to watch.  It’s called Unreal.  It is on Lifetime.  Do you like The Bachelor or the Bachelorette?  Well, basically this comedy show makes fun of the bachelor.  It is a behind-the-scenes look about what life is like on the set of Everlasting, which is a Bachelor show knock-off.  UnREAL is on Lifetime on Mondays at 10pm.  I don’t normally watch lifetime, but it showed up in my app on my apple tv and then… I found it… and started watching… and now I like it!  If you like the Bachelor, this show is for you!

the bachelor? Nope. This is UnREAL!

    You'll have fun with those gorgeous peaches–and your floral arrangement is stunning. Hope your furniture arrives soon!

      Furniture still isn't here 🙁 if it's gone forever I guess I'll get new ones… Gotta stay on the bright side!

    I am sooooo jealous of those peach trees! They are beautiful! It's Saturday now, so I'm hoping your furniture arrived yesterday? Because now it's the 4th, and do the movers work on the 4th? Yikes. I feel for you, I hope you get your stuff soon!

      Nope, no furniture. Turns out they lied again and guess what? Took the 3rd off… No one was in the office to answer our calls. Hope it comes Monday because I'm heading on vacation Tuesday!

    Wow! Those peaches look delicious. Good luck with your move – hopefully your stuff arrives just as Reilly's did. Your summary of Inside Out is perfect – what a great film, for adults and kids alike.

      The peaches are so yummy… We can't eat them fast enough! Inside out was a really good movie… I was surprised I had somehow missed the whole advertising campaign for it! Guess I've been in my own la-la-land!
