Hup and Steph (and Nic) are moving to San Francisco!

Now this is some exciting news! I’m so freakin’ excited that I’m about to pee my pants, for realz! (if peeing your plants is cool, then you can call me Miles Davis)

OK, so I’m not really going to pee my pants (this time), but I am definitely getting excited about the fact that Stephanie and I are going to be leaving our cute, little cottage here in Palo Alto and will be making the big move up to the wonderfully awesome city of San Francisco this week! We’re moving up to a HUGE, 3-level apartment that’s located in the SOMA (south of Market Street) district, which is about a 20 minute walk away from my office. So, not only is it going to be a bigger and better place that’s located in one of the most amazing cities in the world, but it’s also literally blocks away from where I work so I’ll be saving about 2 hours per day by not commuting from Palo Alto to San Francisco every day on CalTrain. Besides the obvious time that it’s going to save me every day, it also saves me about $160 in cash each month since I won’t have to buy a monthly train pass anymore.


The outside of our new place - what are we going to do with all this room?

Another uber-radicalicious part of moving up to the city is the fact that Stephanie and I are going to have a roommate now and he’s going to be the best possible roomie that we could ever hope for. His name is Nic Engel and he has lived down the street from us here in Palo Alto since we moved in a year ago and ever since we first met him both Stephanie and I have both become really good friends with him. He’s going to have the bachelor dungeon downstairs of our new apartment all to himself and he’s currently trying to find the right type of dancefloor that he can install in front of his huge closet mirrors so that he can bust out his dance moves at any given time. Nic is definitely one of a kind and you’ll be hearing much, much more about him as we start to blog all of the upcoming adventures that all 3 of us are sure to be having together.


We like to call Nic ’special’.

Well, that’s about all I can tell you about our move for now, but we’ll be updating you more about it as we make our way up to our new home in San Francisco. Yeah, I said it — ‘our new home in San Francisco’!

    CONGRATS! I am so Jealous* I want to live in San Fran more than anywhere in the world other than Paris* Where did you guys find such cool spacious affordable digs?

    Well Zoe, consider this an open invite to come out and crash on our couch any time that you feel like it. :)

    We we really lucky to find the place that we did. It’s actually a condo that’s owned by a guy named Jeff who is relocating to LA. He didn’t want to get rid of the condo, so he decided to rent it out. We saw it on Craigslist and the rest is history.

    We’ll post some more shots of it later in the week once we actually get moved in.
