Recap of our San Fran Visit

A trip to California always does our family GOOD! This was our second time flying to the west coast as a family but our first time visiting San Francisco. One of our favorite places was the California Academy of Science’s it’s basically an Aquarium, Planetarium, and Natural History Museum all mixed into one cool adventure! The one thing that stood out the most to me was the dinosaur bones. I knew the kids would love this and couldn’t wait to see theirs faces when they noticed them.

In edition to the awesome dinosaur bones, we were able to explore sea creatures

We were also able to see the Golden State Bridge and that was the coolest thing for me!

Yup once again Jagger decides to be “Jagger” in the family pics lol. Gotta love that guy!

In addition to this we ventured to Fisherman’s Wharf via street car for some good seafood.

Here’s Maveric holding a love crab! This is his face after we told him it was alive.

All in all we had a wonderful visit here are some suggestions:

  1. Don’t rent a car! It’s so hard to get around and find parking, public transportation is the best as well as Uber.
  2. Pack layers- the weather is so unpredictable we went from cold to hot to cool back to cold in one day.
  3. Go with the flow- California in general is such a wonderful place to visit so anytime I’m there I feel at peace and in an awesome mood

Well that’s it let me know where you end up, we didn’t get to see the Fullhouse location but there’s always next time. Until then….

The house with the PINK door….

I’ve always wanted a statement door and I knew when we moved this would be my first project. I talked with the hubby and got his input on living with a PINK front door. Yes a Very Berry pink door to be exact! I found my inspiration on Pinterest and was ready for the challenge.

Before we closed on our house I mentioned to our realator that I wanted to paint the door and as part of our closing gift, she gifted us with this awesome #HWTH door mat!

Initially, our door was black, and since it was already a grey exterior I wanted to spice up the outside. I went to our local Lowe’s Home Improvement store and grabbed a can of pink paint that I THOUGHT was the color of my dreams.

The first coat scared me so bad I wanted to abort the mission! But since I’m not a quitter, I decided to press on. After my second coat, I realized this was not the color for me.

I went back to Lowe’s and that’s when I found Very Berry by Valspar!

After 3 coats I was in love! They hardest or should I say most tedious part was using painters tape and painting around the glass.

I will admit, I was so scared but one I made the first stroke I was game and I’m so excited about the decision we made. Every morning when I drive off I look in the mirror and I’m excited to see that pink door as we head off on our daily routine.

Think of one item that you’ve been holding off on doing and knock it out this month!!! It’s literally SEPTEMBER and time waits for no one so I’m cheering you on now! Be sure to tag me in your pics and drop a comment below to let me know what you’re up too.

Cheers to taking risks and crushing them! Until next time…..
