Year Two | Month Ten

Life has been busy. The rest of the summer flew by! So did Fall for that matter.

Tim had to go up to San Francisco for work and I had just completed a contract project so I decided to go with and also get the chance to see my sister, brother in law and adorable nephew.

We spent 2 night in SF. The first day, Tim worked all day and I explored SF until I was too tired to walk around anymore. Then I went to Topspin's SF office and watched Cannonball Run with Tim's coworkers. We then went to the House of Prime Rib. The meal was decent minus the live bug I found in my salad. But all was forgiven when the 81 year old "owner" came to our table to apologize and stole a kiss on the cheek.

On Friday, Tim went to work and I headed to East Bay to hang with my sister. I came back to the city and Tim and I had a decent dinner at Burger Bar before being too exhausted to explore the city further.

Saturday we headed out to the East Bay and stayed with my sister and brother in law and spent lots of time hanging with our nephew who has so much energy I wish I could bottle it up and sell it.

Coming up on our calenders are Royskopp concert, Friend's Thanksgiving, regular Thanksgiving and Christmas with Tim's family in Illinois.

We are almost at the 3 year mark and it feels like just yesterday that Tim was suggesting we go to Robbins Brothers to look for an engagement ring.

Tim and I took a vacation up to Portland, Oregon. Though the weather was a little warm a few days we had a lot of fun. Portland is beautiful and green. It also has things Tim and I love like espresso, huge bookstores and indy record stores.

We had a lot of fun exploring and also relaxing at our hotel. It was a good time to reboot.

End of the night

For the 4th of July long weekend, Tim and I hung out like bumps on a log or rather Reads on a couch.

On July 5th, we rolled out to our old neighborhood, Hollywood to go to the Hollywood Bowl to see Death Cab for Cutie with the LA Phil. It was a great concert including the opening act, Tegan & Sara, who we also love.

The photo is from the finale in which the fireworks went off in time with Death Cab for Cutie's song Transatlanticism. It was an awesome closer. Here is a youtube video that someone else (I don't know) took: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kq2AKBabiUY

Next up: Braces off for me and a trip to Portland for both of us.

Second Year| Month Four

Coolhaus Truck

June wasn't very eventful.

After our joint birthday celebration with friends, Tim and I celebrated my birthday with Prime Rib at an LA institution, Lawry's Prime Rib. It was a lot of fun and delicious.

Since then things have been pretty quiet. Except that I decided to try and start my own practice. Things are moving along with that and we'll see in a few months if it continues. For now, I am happy.

We have also been spending lots of time hanging out together, which is awesome. The picture is from our trip tracking down the Cool Haus truck which is one of many "food trucks" a new trend in LA. They sell yummy custom ice cream sandwiches. And since we tracked them down in Santa Monica it wasn't much of a heartship.

Next month - Death Cab for Cutie at the Hollywood Bowl and more.

Two Year| Month Three: We're Thirty!

Since February Tim & I have been very busy. In March we went to Mill Valley to see friends get married. In April we worked hard. And on May 18, Tim became an adult...or at least turned 30. Since I will be following behind him shortly. So last night we enjoyed a fine meal at Lula's in Santa Monica and did a very short pub crawl because we are no longer 21 years old. Yes, it was something that definitely aided in showing are age.

Second Anniversary: On Wednesday

Do You Guys?
Originally uploaded by cebread
Two years ago, Tim and I stood up before everyone we loved (and could make it all the way to California in February) and promised to love each other more each day.

Then we smashed cupcakes in each others faces and ate mini burritos.

Today, Tim had to go to the dentist because his temporary crown broke. And I had to go to work to try and wrangle expert depositions. Not quite as much fun as getting married.

But we were still happy because when we came home from long days at work and dental care we had each other.

As we start towards are third anniversary, we will continue to have stumbling blocks, tribulations, good times and amazing moments but most importantly...we will have each other.

One Year | Month Eleven: Lovely LA Weather

December was a whirl wind for Tim and I.
Lots of work prior to the holidays.
Tim and I started a monthly podcast called Candy is Dandy (found at candyisdandy.net) .
Then a weekend up in San Fran for the Topspin Christmas Party.
Then a week plus in Columbus for Christmas and New Year's/my mom's birthday.

December was a whole lot of busy and therefore we neglected our blogging duties here.

January we have been keeping it low key, resting up from the fun but hectic holiday season.

The past two weekends we have been experiencing unusually warm weather even for Los Angeles. Today Tim and I went out to Venice Beach and walked along the beach, looking at street vendors and enjoying the sun. On our way back to the car we stopped at Fig Tree's Cafe for a snack and some cold beverages.

Hoping all everyone's 2009 is starting off in lovely ways.
