Moving to Morgan Hill?!

We are currently in contract on a house in Morgan Hill! If all goes well, we will be moved to Morgan Hill in about 30 days. Please keep your fingers crossed that our buyers don't back out! If they back out, we'll have to back out of the house in Morgan Hill.

House Update

We accepted an offer on our place and are currently in contract. We aren't pleased with the price but oh well.

We put an offer on a place in Morgan Hill and they countered.

We are putting in our final offer on the Morgan Hill house tomorrow. Should know by Saturday while we are in Long Beach celebrating Gracie's 1st birthday. Cross your fingers.

Fancy Sh-Mancy

Yesterday we received a wedding invitation in the mail and boy was it fancy! It really was a work of art. It reminded me of another invitation we received last year for a wedding in Egypt that we were bummed to miss. Both of these invites were for friends of Rob he met at Santa Clara University (round 2 at SCU). They are so neat I decided to take pictures and share them.

The first was from last year and was for Rob's friend Ahmed and his now wife Yasmine. They were married the day after Christmas last year in Egypt. We really wanted to go but due to timing (holiday) and dinero, we had to skip it. But one day, we WILL go to Egypt (hopefully). This wasn't an invitation card, it was an invitation box. So cool.

Below is the invitation we just received yesterday. This is for Rob's friend Nate and his soon to be wife Parya. They are getting married next month at the Fairmont in San Jose so we'll definately be there. Confession: as soon as I saw the necklace, I went to see if it was real. Its not but it's still really cool. I also love the crystals. So chic! I can probably still wrap that bad boy around my neck (or ankles?) and wear it to their wedding and wouldn't they be impressed! ;) kidding of course...

For someone who put their invitations together themselves, I can appreciate the work that went into these. And don't get me started on the postage!

Happy Birthday to Me

Rob planned a surprise trip for my birthday. All I knew was we were flying southwest and would fly on a Saturday and return the following Sunday. I had a hunch it was Vegas and guess what - my hunch was right!

We flew into town pretty early and late late on Sunday. We actually felt like we had a lot of time to see the sights. We stayed at the new Pilazzo hotel that is owned and connected to the Venetian. It was really nice. We ate at the Cut steakhouse in Pilazzo (a wolfgang puck restaurant). Apparently the one in LA is hard to get into but because the Las Vegas one is so new, its easier to get a reservations. It was y-u-m-m-y! Then we went to the Cirque Du Soleil Zumanity show, the "sensual side of Cirque". It was different but entertaining. Not the typical Cirque show, more of a burlesque show. After shopping and a little bit of gambling, we walked around and decided to check out the wax museum. It was actually quite entertaining!

Here are some highlights from the trip:
