Left Field

Whenever Chris and I travel, we love to find a fun shop to find a souvenir or plant to bring home. We were in San Luis Obispo for our friend’s wedding and passed this amazing store called Left Field where they sell “unexpected goods and greenery”. On our way home, we stopped in and picked up some fun things for the house and, of course, a succulent! If you’re ever in the Central Coast, you should definitely check this store out!

Golden State Warriors Parade

J for Jamie Blog | Golden State Warriors Parade

If you haven’t heard, the Golden State Warriors won the 2015 NBA Championship for the first time since 1975! Chris and I had the honor of representing his family in the Warriors Championship Parade on June 19th in Oakland, California. I have to say it, it was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had and I felt most undeserving of it. We met with all the old Warrior legends, sat on top of a cool convertible in the parade and then got to hang out with every Warriors person ever – including the whole 2015 team. I am so grateful for this opportunity and so happy I could be there with Chris – it’s definitely a day that we’ll re-live forever in our memories (I mean, look at Chris’ smile in the next photo). Go Warriors!

Toting around + a giveaway!

I always keep a reusable bag in my purse and a few in my car because in most of the Bay Area, you don’t get shopping bags for free anymore. I love finding fun reusable bags and collect them like I do shoes. That’s why I love the limited edition tote bags from Knock Knock. Since they sent over a couple of bags, I thought I’d fill them with fun things  and give them to a few of my friends, just in time for summer. Reusable bags are a great alternative to gift wrap and can be awesome gifts themselves and I’ve teamed up with Knock Knock who is giving away one of each of their bags so you can tote around in style!

Santa Cruz Dog Beach

J for Jamie Blog  | Santa Cruz Dog Beach

It’s funny how our lives have changed since getting Charlie. We spend almost all of our free time thinking about what we can do for or with Charlie. She’s still a very shy dog so we want to create experiences for her that will encourage her to be brave and confident. So when we find a dog-friendly restaurant, park or public space, we’re there! Our friends Derrick and Amy told us about an 0ff-leash dog beach in Santa Cruz. It’s nice and small so it’s easy to keep track of your pup. Charlie loves chasing other dogs so she had quite a day running around in the sand. She’s not quite sure yet about going in the water but we think the more we go, she’ll want to try it out one day!

London

J for Jamie Blog | London

London, you are my new favorite city. We ended our trip in London and it was just perfect, albeit cold. Everything from our AirBnb to the food we ate was 100%. The only thing I wish is that we had more time there. After traveling for 3 weeks in countries where we didn’t speak the language, it was also refreshing to be able to order a meal in a restaurant without a struggle. My highlights from our time in London were seeing the crown jewels, visiting Westminster Abbey, having tea and scones after the Tate Modern and eating at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, Fifteen. It was just the perfect place to finish out our European vacation. (more…)

Love Lock Bridge

J for Jamie Blog | Paris

One thing I wanted to do while we were in Paris was put a lock on the “love lock” bridge. The tradition is to get a lock, write down the name of you and your lover, lock it on the bridge and throw the key in the river. We put our names on one side and Roxy’s name on the other. There are rumors that they are removing all the locks some day but at least we got to do it before that happened! (more…)

Life with Charlie | Month 2

J for Jamie Blog | Life with Charlie, Month 2

Charlie is now about 6 months and 30 pounds. We did one of those DNA tests on her to find out what breed she is – it came back with German Shepard, American Eskimo and Terrier mix. She has become 100% comfortable with both Chris and I, especially at home. Because of her shyness, she’s extremely obedient out in public but is more adventurous and wants to sniff everything. She needs a bath almost every week because she loves the backyard and gets pretty dirty out there. She also desperately wants to sleep on our bed but mean ol’ Chris won’t let her – so she jumps up there every chance she gets and sits on his pillows. We’ve surrendered to her on the couch and she loves to snuggle up next to us. She spent her first weekend at the Wag Hotel while we were away at a wedding. We think she really enjoyed it but she was definitely happy to be home with us. She has also started puppy obedience classes at the Zoom Room and loves it – she’s their star student! (more…)

Paris

J for Jamie Blog | Paris

Paris oh Paris, how I love you. We planned to stay in Paris a little longer than the other cities during our European vacation. We’ve both visited before but it’s been a few years and we’ve never been with each other, so we were so excited to see the city together. I booked an apartment in the Montmartre area – literally a stone’s throw away from the Sacre Coer. I also intentionally picked our apartment to stay in the same neighborhood where my favorite movie, Amelie, was filmed. We spent our days exploring our neighborhood, going to museums, walking around, shopping, going to the park and eating (lots and lots of eating). This was also a special leg of our trip because we spent Thanksgiving here, just the two of us. Obviously, Parisians don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but the city was gearing up for Christmas so it was especially sparkly. I admit Paris is a little different from when I visited 6 years ago, it’s a little dirtier and it’s not quite as charming as it used to be. Regardless, it’s still one of my favorite cities and I’m really happy Chris and I have such special memories of Paris together now. (more…)

J for Jamie Blog | Hazel and Eli

Just wanted to share these smiling gems on this warm and sunny Friday. This is Eli and Hazel, two of the cutest kids you’ll ever meet. I remember when they were still in their mom’s belly and now they’re running around, doing robot impressions and dancing around. I got to spend a little time with them this week for our Munchery dinner so I snuck in a couple of photos. Happy Friday!
