Starting Over...

Okay so here we are... 2 years after I started this blog, I've cleared it all out and am starting from scratch. A lot has happened in the past 2 years, a new house, a new job (and back to an old job) a new puppy, and a new project... planning our WEDDING! So here goes... here's the short(ish) version of everything that's happened up until this point...

1. New House
We moved out of the Glendora house and into a smaller, older, but cooler home up a few blocks. The Ximeno house is awesome... it really feels like home. Built in 1926, it's definitely got its quirks (like a crazy old wall mounted sink and creaky floors) but it's definitely ours. It's a vibrant (yes, I use words like vibrant) mix of Ikea and vintage and we love it!
2. Neville
Neville is probably the best decision Andrew and I have ever made together. Back in July of last year, my sister called and said her friend had rescued a few puppies and they needed homes. We had really wanted a puppy but wanted to wait until we could afford a Schnauzer. Well, a little birdy (my sister) told us that there was a chance that the pups were part Schnauzer, and one of us (me) is a sucker for the prospect of a cute puppy, so we went down to look at them, with the thought that we were NOT leaving with a dog. Three hours (and two sad puppy eyes) later, we were the proud parents of this adorable puppy. I mean really, who could say no to this face?!
Now a year later, here he is... in all his Schnauzer-y glory!
So here's the biggest new thing in our lives... We're engaged! Andrew popped the question on April 16th when we were in Florida visiting our new niece, Olivia. I had no idea that it was going to happen and was SO surprised! More to come on the engagement, but here's a photo to start it off. 

And now we're in the middle of planning our Palm Springs wedding for January 26, 2013! Crazy things have happened in the last 2 years and I'm super excited for what's to come...
