Change is good, and sometimes bitter-sweet. I'm sad to leave all of my friends and co-workers at Gold Canyon but excited for the new friendships and experiences I'll have at Sherri May and Co. Starting Monday I'll be at a design agency in Phoenix where I'll work as the Senior Designer for a few months and then transition into the Art Director position! I'm looking forward to the growth and opportunity this new change will bring me. 2012 is already looking like a good year...

This is what I wished it would have looked like when I was in Utah for Christmas. Unfortunately we didn't get a White Christmas. But it was still fun to go ice skating in Midway, see the lights at Temple Square, and listen to the Cathedral of the Madeline's Christmas Service — all bundled up in my winter boots, scarves, coat and gloves. And the best part of course, hanging out with my family and friends.

Went to Foster the People last night — so much fun! They played at The Venue and the roof was some tarp/canvas thing so during the show it was dripping from the outside rain, kinda funny but kept us cool. Love that the nights here are cooling off. Monsoon Season is always a fun time of year — we get some spectacular lightning storms.

Just ordered a swatch of this wallpaper from Anthro. I would LOVE to have this in my office, just about the prettiest wallpaper I've ever seen.

Stina's Surprise 30th — The Run Down

30 days prior to Stina's birthday we organized to have 30 of her friends and family write letters or send birthday cards and then starting on July 8th she received one letter outside the front door every day up until her birthday.

On Friday we said we were meeting up with some friends in Scottsdale at the Sugar Bowl for dessert, and then after we all went to dessert we happened to drive by the Hotel Valley Ho and ended up parking and saying we wanted to take a look around. We had decorated a room and had pictures, balloons and decorations hung up all over the walls. SURPRISE!!!! We planned a stay-cation to hangout in town all weekend with the girls. (Nat, Lace, Julz, Mares, Shell, Me and Stina) Super fun, we had all packed before hand and Shell was even able to pack Stina's suitcase so she didn't have a clue. Saturday we woke up and ate cookies for breakfast, went to the pool and hung out there all morning/afternoon, went to lunch, back to the pool for the dj pool party, went shopping at Fashion Square and then we had planned a surprise dinner with all of her high school friends, college and AZ friends. It was a blast and couldn't have been a better party and surprise weekend. We LOVE you Stina! Happy 30th hope you have a wonderful year — & welcome to the club.

Just purchased these new vintage glasses from Warby Parker. They have a pretty sweet thing going, when you buy your glasses they donate a pair to someone in need. They have donated over 50,000+ pairs to people all over the world. They are going to start selling their Sunwear line this August, and I already have 5 picked out for them to send me to try on at home so I can decide which one I want and then place my order. Really cool site and concept they've got going. I heart Warby Parker.

I'm pretty excited about this trip, normally I don't plan much of my trips cause I love flying by the seat of my pants and just seeing where the wind blows but this time I've done some research. On St. John's we are going to stay in these Eco-tents and I think they seem really cool, kinda like a modern tropical island style Swiss Family Robinson.

Next up...
St Thomas, St John's, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke
I'm so excited I love beach vacations and everything it entails: reading, relaxing, eating, swimming, diving, sailing and soaking up those hot rays! A perfect summer vaca. Only 7 weeks away – which is right around the corner. Happy happy joy joy

This definitely caught my eye. A collapsible basket by House 8810.

Summer is right around the corner, at least it feels like it here in AZ. I started laying out at the pool in February, love this place... I'm a sucker for stripes and floral suits and these one pieces from J.CREW are pretty cute.

I saw this painting on LDS.org and I love it. I don't know who the artist is but I think it's amazing.

Oh Chad...
It's hard to believe my little bro is now a dad! He has always been amazing with kids — so I'm happy him and Katie now have one of their own. I love the above picture of him and all his wild energy, he still has it but I am sure little Chase will give him a good dose of his own medicine!

I'm lovin my one day old lil' nugget nephew, Chase. And I am still in awe of his momma cat cause she had him naturally with no epidural or anything — all I can say is wow, I am soooo impressed! I know Chad was by her side the whole time coaching her and cheering her on. I love you guys and am so happy for the latest addition to the Metz clan.
