The coast


We got to spend some time at the beach this weekend and it was beautiful! Nolan and I drove up to California Thursday to visit Rob for a long weekend.  For those of you that don't see us on a regular basis, you may be unaware of our exciting news...Rob got a job with his friend, kinda out of the blue, and we're going to be moving to Cali!!! He's working for his friends' Dad setting up golf netting. Yeah, it's a totally different direction then we have been planning on but when this opportunity came about and when we heard we could move to California we jumped at the chance.

Rob has been going out there for the last month, working all week and then coming home on the weekends.  We're hoping that we can make the move within the next month or two. We're kinda just waiting it out....which sucks! I'm ready to get there and start our new life already.

It was very encouraging to go visit and scout out places to live. Oh, to have our own home again!!! I'm already thinking of how I'm going to decorate...that's normal right?

We also celebrated Rob's 28th birthday while we were there. I felt bad because being out of town I wasn't really able to do all the little things that I normally do to celebrate and the fact that we spent all morning trying to find me a swimsuit because I forgot mine, didn't help either. But Rob is a sweetheart and didn't let it bother him. We spent the rest of the afternoon at the beach and ate dinner at Ruby's on the pier.

We are very excited for this new chapter in our lives. I know it will be hard being away from our families, something that we haven't done our whole married life but we know it will be so worth it. Plus it'll get me out of ugly, old Arizona....something that I have been dreaming about for years! Seriously!!

Okay, first of all, Beautiful pictures!!! That's my first thought. But also, Congratulations!! I am so jealous, but very excited for you! If you were still in our ward, and we saw you frequently, I say we'll miss you. But we already do and we are blessed to get updates from your blog. So, at least we'll still get to see your lives in CA via your beautiful blog.

Have fun!!! And best wishes in California!

I am jealous that you will be living near the beach but I don't like that you have to move away. Don't get too comfortable in Cali cause as much as you say you don't like AZ, I'm hoping that you guys will truly miss it and want to come back. I can't wait for game night!

Thanks for liking my girls' names. That made my day.

Hope you enjoy California. My husband would move there again in a heartbeat, but I'm a hometown girl.

Congrats! I know how much you've been wanting to live there.. I'm sorry I'll be missing the get-together but I'm already in OK!

And do enjoy Cali- I sure loved it.

a.) when i saw your pictures my first thought was, how can i get tiffany on the beach with me to take awesome pictures of my family? now i know, you'll already be there. :)

b.) i'm so excited for you! earlier this week i asked jason if he's been looking for jobs in california. ha ha. i love it there, although it'd take a lot for me to move there unless it was the town i used to live in. what area are you going to be in?

Tiffany Haynes said...

We'll be in Newport Beach area! It's amazing! I love it.
Anna, if you ever come to Cali I will for sure take your family pics on the beach!

We have been back and forth between Utah and California and will be going back this summer so we can be with Russ. We will be in the bay area though! I was hoping we would be closer to you!

That's exciting! Ruby's! We rent a beach house every July walk down to eat at Ruby's at least once during the week (usually more than that). You must have been in Oceanside. Good luck to you all!
