What driving 13 hours straight through to Idaho has taught me is that your roadtrip music is Really, Really important. The wrong song and that weariness of driving will get to you. Plus the roads were a bit too icy that I could not afford to start drifting off.

Do you agree with my list? what would you change if you could?
Remember when I said that we are going to move? Well in just about 2 weeks I’ll be in our new house unpacking our furniture. It’s so weird
I am going to be honest I didn’t really want to pick up and move to a completely other state. I am a Southern California girl, born and raised and I love it here. I spent my adolescence going to the beach ever summer, being a mall rat on the weekends and I have never seen snow. So why the hell would I want to pick up and move from a place I love, California has everything! Well let me tell you what made me change my mind.
The traffic is horrible. I went to my aunts house for a birthday party for my niece it took me over an hour to go 7 miles. I know what your saying, California has always been like that, yes but it’s getting worse and no one is trying to do anything about it. I don’t want to spend a quarter of my life waiting around in traffic. I want to actually live it!
No matter where I go there will always be rude and mean people, but lately it’s just gotten worse. Maybe being in California makes you braver which in turn let’s the side of you that shouldn’t be out come out? It’s like people are just miserable and they want to make everyone miserable too!
With both my husband and I working making over the medium household income we still can not afford a decent house. It’s just waaaay too over priced. I don’t know how people even make enough money to buy a house nowadays and not be flat broke. It seems impossible.
So those are just a couple of reasons but they were the main ones that my husband convinced me that we should move.
So the reason I’ve been not updating as much this month is because we have been trying to finalize some plans. I wanted to talk about it so bad but I didn’t want to get anyone’s hopes up (my own) and I didn’t want to say anything only to have to take them back later.
WE ARE MOVING.
Remember our Trip to Boise?
Well we went for a Labor day Vacation, but we also went to see if we would love to move there. Well we decided and my husband is going to transfer his job up there and everything.
You must be wondering why we are going to leave California and move to Idaho of all places, well I’ll list those reasons in another post.
I just wanted to OFFICIALLY announce it to you all!
Wish me luck!
First let me start off by saying that I love sushi rolls. I could pretty much eat them every dinner and today I want to share with you all my favorite sushi place.
It’s called Sushi Gone Wild and if you are ever in southern california in the south bay and you are looking for some sushi that wont break the bank then look no further. Also if you happen to come during your birthday well 1 cent saki doesn’t sound bad at all!
The place is a bit on the small side and it gets filled fairly quickly during peak dinner hours so definitely call ahead.
Looking at these pictures are seriously making my mouth water.
Where is your favorite sushi place?
It’s April! This Life in color will not be a monthly Instagram look (although all the pictures on here are all on my instagram Follow me HERE) No instead I will be sharing with you all my Napa Valley Vacation.
But first, we cruised down the scenic route and visited Solvang where we had Danish Pancakes at Paula’s Pancake house.
My husband had the blueberry, while I had apple pie. OMG they were so good. Definitely stop by if you ever find yourself in Solvang.
We then cruised up the 101, where there were alot of scenery however made the drive so much more longer than if we just took the 5.
We however came upon San Francisco where the Traffic was a plenty, and (to me at least) looked just like LA.
But we finally arrived at our hotel in Napa, which was the Hilton Gardens. I was too exhausted from the drive to take a picture so sorry about that.
WE took the Napa Valley Wine Train on our first day, which was so fun and the food was great.
I suggest doing the train if your in Napa.
We also did some Wine Tours, but my Fave was Robert Mondavi Winery. The tour was very intimate as we were the last tour of the day and it was just my husband and I.
This was so fun, I just wish I took more pictures, but I was a bit too busy Drinking Wine and having fun.
