Happy Friday babes! As of today… we are San Francisco residents.  This transition has been a long time coming, but seeing as we literally found our apartment less than two weeks ago, it’s been a whirlwind at the same time.  I still have a few more OC moments to share with you guys – including a fun little video I’m working on!  But I’m also excited to explore and start sharing some of this new city.

Our movers are unloading our things this morning, and I plan to live that grungy workout clothes 24/7 life all weekend to get as much unpacked as possible. I can’t live amongst boxes any longer!!  Thankfully unpacking should be a lot easier because I tried to clean everything well beforehand to make the process go by faster. As a creature of habit, I’m so ready to be back in a more consistent routine.  Therefore I’m highly motivated to power through and get it done!

I’ve gotten some messages from y’all about moving/packing tips.  The bad news is… I have no tips. We both despise moving (maybe because this is the 11th home and 5th city I’ve lived in since high school?), and I just hoard boxes, buy a ton of bubble wrap and tape and get to town. I try to clean things before I pack them (polishing silver, dusting, etc.), so the unpacking process is smoother. If I had great tips I would share but sadly, they’re just the basic roll-up-your-sleeves-and-put-your-yoga-pants-on kind of strategy.  Not exciting!

What do you guys have going on this weekend? It’s almost the 4th of July, holy cow! Who has plans? We have a rooftop in our new place that we’ll probably lay out a blanket and watch the fireworks… but if you have any fun holiday SF recs I’d love to hear! Thanks so much for reading and sharing – XO –

  1. I too will be spending the weekend unpacking. We just finished a major, pretty much whole house renovation, and it is finally done. So this weekend I get to unpack my kitchen and figure out where everything is going to go in the new space.

  2. Tip for pets and rentals in SF: go online and get them certified as an emotional support animal. If you do this you can move anywhere with any animal, whether they accept pets or not. You also don’t have to pay a deposit or pet rent on them. It’s a life saver.

    1. This is what we’ve been told, but considering that they’re not emotional support animals and as a medical doctor C can’t get onboard. He has forbidden me, sadly! Life is tough being married to a rule follower.

  3. Great post and list! I love the gondola with the roses! It looks so dreamy, and your dog resume is so cute. It’s almost unbelievable that they require such strict guidelines when it comes to house hunting.


    1. Oh my gosh – I would tell anyone considering a dog in a large city to RECONSIDER! Bailey is an older gal so we have to make it work but it is definitely not easy!

  4. Can’t believe you guys are over there already ;( Will sure stick around to see the progress of your new home! I hate packing and unpacking, have moved probably as much as you did! Good thing is you have a new city to explore which is always fun!
