WOOP! The little intern is now a big ole Search Marketing Coordinator :)

Movin' on up!

We went to the Bubble Lounge last weekend for some celebratory drinks and dancing. It's a champagne bar with over 300 champagnes and sparkling wines, and you better believe we had our fair share of some bubbly. My favorite was the "Bubblicious" champagne cocktail - Prosecco, peach liqueur and peach nectar.

And last night there were even more celebrations! An announcement was sent out to the office at the end of the day, which led to a bottle of champagne being popped and followed with more drinks at a nearby dive bar. I just love my coworkers :)

Photo Challenge - #3

#3 - Something you adore

I do adore this girl here, but there's something else (in her belly) that I love and adore. Yep, she and her hubby are expecting a baby in July :) I can't believe how much I love this little one, and I haven't even met him/her yet.

I'm going to be a first-time Aunt, and I am so excited to welcome this little bundle of joy into our family and to watch baby grow.

Congratulations to my sister and brother-in-law, I could not be happier for you two. You are going to make amazing parents (and your little one is going to be spoiled rotten by Auntie Rose) ♥

Thank you for making my dreams come true ;)

Words of Wisdom Wednesday

A saw this awesome thing on my cousin's Facebook page, and I just had to share.

Oh I just love an inspirational orange! ;)

This reminded me that I started W³ way back in July and never posted again. Perfect opportunity to share some of my fave quotes stored in my handy dandy lil quote book.

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy." - Anne Frank

"A stumble may prevent a fall."

"Be kind; for everyone you meet is fighting their own hard battle."

"Don't be pushed by your problems, be led by your dreams."

Happy Hump Day!

Photo Challenge - Week/Day 2

This is a fun challenge and I'm anxious! So I'm going to post in order as often as I please. Rules shmules :)

#2: Breakast

Nearly every Saturday and/or Sunday I make this breakfast because it's my favorite and I feel so good after eating it. One egg (scrambled, fried or hard boiled), one potato (sauteed in red pepper flakes, garlic and onion), one piece of toast, and some kind of fruit. Plus Sriracha (I put it on everything) and Barry's tea, straight from Ireland.

Bon app├ętit!

Photo a Day Week Challenge - Week 1

I thought this would be a fun challenge to blog. Realistically I won't post every day, so I decided I'd do one photo a week (and hopefully I'll at least stick to that).

Week 1: Me!

... in one of the most beautiful places I've visited; Santorini, Greece

Living in Luxury

For the first time in my life, I bought myself a fancy shmancy bed set! I've had nice comforters, pillows and whatnot, but never the whole shebang.

And now my adorable bed matches our perfect little apartment :)

The best thing is that this purchase wasn't even planned. I was reading a book at a park right by the bay and had to leave because I got too cold. I couldn't warm up on my walk back, so I saw a Ross and decided I'd wander in just until I stopped shivering. Then I found this beaut for only $50.

Talk about a steal! This 12 piece room ensemble includes a comforter, bedskirt, coverlet, two euro shams, two standard shams, three square pillows and two breakfast pillows (I'm reading the package people - my bed lingo is not that good).

Te gusta? :)

And while I'm at it I'll show you my favorite part of our apartment, the view.

♥ Home sweet home

68 degrees and sunny... is it really January?! I spent the majority of my weekend outside and loved it! Saturday I went for a three hour-long walk/hike with no specific destination in mind. I ended up walking through the Marina, Ghirardelli Square, Fort Mason, Fort Mason Green, Marina Green and took a little break at Crissy Field beach.

Saturday's route: My place to beyond Crissy Field and back

And this is how I spent my Sunday:

Soaking up the sun at Ocean beach with some delicious mimosas and a new friend :) And yes, we are reading the same book... it's The Hunger Games craze!

Next on my list: Find some real hiking spots in the city. I've been hearing good things about a hike through the Redwoods that leads you to a hidden beer garden. Stay tuned for more :)
