Our blog chronicles the lives of two thirty-somethings living and loving in Oakland. We talk a lot about food, wine, travel and our house - a 1916 Craftsman in a part of town that was once described as "up and coming."

ON SOCIAL MEDIA
- Published on Wednesday, 15 May 2013
Authors: Becky CaudillI've been doing this social media thing for a really long time now, both personally and professionally. I don't claim to be an expert, but at one job they did create a whole separate job function for me (New Media Specialist) since I was the most knowledgeable in the agency and our clients had a ton of questions: "What are...
PRODUCT REVIEW: LUSH CACA ROUGE
- Published on Wednesday, 15 May 2013
Authors: Becky CaudillWhoever said maintaining red hair is super hard was not exaggerating.
I've had red hair before - for over a year. Every 8 weeks I'd do my roots and bring the color down into my ends to brighten up my whole head of hair. It looked good until I got a bad box of Feria (or was it Garnier?) and it looked like I poured red Kool-Aid...

Authors: Becky CaudillSince I have nothing interesting to blog about, and everybody likes pictures, I thought I'd share pics of our trip to Hawaii from my actual camera (and not just my iPhone). Enjoy.
NO WAIT, I LOVE THIS HOUSE EVEN MORE!

Authors: Becky CaudillBack in 2007 we flew to Boston for a college friend's wedding reception. Leaving the airport we got in the wrong lane and instead of jumping on the highway we ended up taking the coastal route up to Newburyport, MA. While we were exhausted from our redeye, that was one of the best navigating mistakes we ever made (unlike,...
I AM IN LOVE WITH A HOUSE
- Published on Friday, 03 May 2013
Authors: Becky CaudillSo obviously I'm still obsessed with the idea of moving to Tofino and opening up a soup restaurant/truck there (I even have a name picked out). But that doesn't stop me from keeping my eye on what's for sale in other areas that I love, namely Bozeman, MT, and around Cleveland, OH. When we were visiting my sister last summer,...
IMAGINARY INTERNET FRIENDS
- Published on Tuesday, 30 April 2013
Authors: Becky CaudillIn the span of days I met three Internet slash blog friends that I've been chatting with for more than a year. What's awesome(r) is that these three people met each other in person just a couple of months ago too!
I remember back when I first started gathering friends from the Internet and people thought it was funny that I...

Authors: Becky CaudillThis was happening.
A couple of weeks ago, feeling the stress of the house sale, we cashed in our timeshare and booked two tickets on Alaska Airlines direct to Kona. The flight is just under five hours, so it's easier to get there than it is to drive down to LA for the weekend. I really love landing in Kona because you...
HAIR SAGA .... COMPLETE?
- Published on Monday, 15 April 2013
Authors: Becky CaudillSo, things have been kind of dramatic around here. Well, not really dramatic. But my hair? Yeah, lots of drama in that department.
You may recall back in December I decided that after years of being a red head that I wanted to go back to brunette. My first at-home foray down that path was questionable, so I went to the salon...

Authors: Becky CaudillWe've been on a kick lately to get our pictures hung up in the condo. I think there's just something about having things that you're familiar with, and had in prior homes to make a new place feel more lived in and personalized. Because this is a rental unit we didn't want to put a bunch of holes in the walls with our frames,...
