There are so many things to love about this photo:
1.Arugula (my mom calls is "arue-goo-la"): A new addiction from Trader Joes. It's good on/with everything.
2.Cheese: Specifically this is an English Cheddar with caramelized onions. Oh My. Also from TJ's, this cheese is soo good!
3.Wintry Blend Coffee: It's surprisingly cold here in Sac Town, and what's better than a spicy blend coffee??!?
4.Cutting Board: My dad made me this cutting board for my birthday. I use it once a day, if not more.
5.Spatula: This spatula is a cake decorating spatula that my Farfar gave me. It's supposed to be used to frost cakes, but I've found so many other good uses for it! It also reminds me of him every time I use it.
6.Bread: Ummm, hello...it's just good.
So sometimes a picture isn't worth a thousand words, but maybe this is close?

I have now been living in Sacramento for three months. Wow.
I can't believe. how. much. time. flies.
I think this may be the 3rd weekend that I've fully been "home" since moving. Since I am now feeling more confident in my job and getting my apartment organized, I had a little chance to explore. I was looking for a fabric store to work on a project. As I drove on highway 50 towards Lake Tahoe, I took an exit and headed west.
Tah-da, I found Fair Oaks. It's just about in the foothills of Northern CA. Talk about cute! They are known for having chickens and roosters roam around town. Watch out if you ever drive there to look out for them!
I was pleasantly surprised at the cute little shops and antique boutiques that I visited. I wish I would have brought my camera to capture the fun-ness that I had. It was such a cute, quaint one street downtown. It even had an Italian eatery and French bakery. YUM! Too bad I already had Peets in hand. Bummer.
I figure this little adventure was so fun and about 20 miles away from where I live. Not. that. bad.
I enjoyed it mostly because it reminded me of Niwot...where everyone has a slightly slower pace and there are older women who just stand/sit around and chit chat. So awesome!
