Weddings, lots of Driving, Homework, and Work

Wow! The last couple of weeks have been so busy!

 I drove to Medford the last two weekends to visit my family and witness the marriages of two awesome couples. Both weddings were beautiful and wonderful and I'm so happy for John + Kati and Steven + Whitney! It wasn't fun driving for 12 hours two weekends in a row but it was definitely worth it. Andrew had to attend his Saturday classes so he stayed behind in SF but he got to watch football all weekend and eat cookie dough which I think helped the situation :)

While I was in Medford I went wedding dress shopping with Laura, our mom, and Sheldon's mom, Ver Dawn. Laura found her dress!!! It's beautiful on her and I'm so happy for her!

I am now employed! I started at Starbucks last week. Even though it's a really crazy store (underground between the Westfield SF Center and the Powell BART Station in downtown) and there's so many things to learn and memorize, it's going well and I like it. I was only scheduled to work 12 hours this week but I've picked up hours by covering shifts and I'll end the week with almost 40 hours. Woohoo! I work all of the coming week too, until Saturday, which I requested off in order to meet the TRF Youth Group at the Great America theme park. I'm so excited for Saturday! I've been taking the bus to and from work and it provides entertainment and annoyment. I'm thinking of adding "Things heard on the SF Muni" to the blog. Along with updates of our lives you can read entertaining stories of public transportation. For example, this week I overheard this conversation between a European guy and a cute girl:
Guy: (sits down next to girl and in broken English) "You look like movie actress."
Girl: (laughs) "Thank you, which one?"
Guy: "I don't know."
Girl: "Oh... okay..."
I sat nearby laughing to myself thinking, "That was a pickup line fail!"
That might have been funnier in person.

Andrew has been super busy with his classes. He had a final today, a 10 minute presentation in his Air Quality class. He spent all week researching and working on the presentation. His teacher and teacher's aid both told him that his presentation was great and his slide's were perfect! He also has a group presentation coming up next Saturday so he'll be busy this week working on that.

Go Ducks! (we're at campus watching the game)


  1. Rachel does that mean that your Star Bucks is underground? I am glad you like it. I always thought it would be a fun place to work. Looking forward to our weekend coming up! Hope the weather holds.

  2. Yep! The store is underground. I hope the weather stays nice for your visit! We can't wait to you see you guys!

  3. Sounds like a fun job! Riding the bus can be entertaining...glad your enjoying SF life!
