Answer: I don't really know, yet. I've been interviewing in Orange County and have an offer in Sacramento. Right now it's out of my hands. I feel like I did well in some of those interviews, so we just have to wait and see if the fit is right!

Until then, I'm hanging out up here in Sac and working on the inaugural committee. I use the word "working" very loosely. : ) Actually, it's quite bittersweet because all of the people who I became close with are leaving or have already left. So, I'm using this time to really enjoy their company and be thankful for all the wonderful opportunities I've had so far!

Sarah's Going Away Party

I'm very proud of my friend Sarah. She's been picked up by the McCain campaign already and is going to be their Deputy Director of Strategy. She is brilliant and will be the next Karl Rove! She proved to be my sanity on many ocassions here on the campaign and I miss her already.

We did a going away happy hour for her on Thursday night. Lots of fun people came and toasted her farewell.

Sarah is tall. Much taller than STJ and Clarke.

My friend Sarah.

The four amigos.

Yosemite Trip!

A couple of weeks ago, some friends from work and I traveled up to Yosemite for a long weekend. As shameful as this is, I as a lifelong Californian, had never been, so I was anxious for the trip. Bismarck, a coworker and friend, planned the whole trip and we called him the Camp Director all weekend. He made sure we did a bunch of hikes, went on tours, and had a fancy dress up dinner at the Ahwanhee Hotel.

When we first arrived, we had lunch, then went on a walk to Mirror Lake. It was really a nice and quiet hike/walk. The lake really gives a great reflection and it looks like the mountains are coming out of the water. This is our group. Bismarck, Sarah, Jennifer Clarke, Matt and Lisa Page, Julie, and I. Yes, I know how to set the timer on my camera! : )

Sarah, Clarke, and I. The three amigos!

On Day 2, we decided to take a hike to a waterfall. I wanted to kill everyone on it. It was a 1.8 mile hike each way and throughout those 1.8 miles, we went 1000 feet straight up. This is 3/4 of the way up looking at the bottom of the falls.

The girls at dinner. The Ahwanhee was beautiful and the food was amazing!

We played board games and drank wine at night. On our last night, Bismarck and Sarah had a racoon on their balcony that wanted to play, too. Or maybe he just wanted the licorice.

We woke up to snow on Sunday, and lots of it. It was really beautiful and we enjoyed seeing Clarke run around in it in her PJs. Guess they don't get a lot of snow in Texas where she's from. : ) It was coming down really hard, though, so we left right after breakfast and took the long way home. Thank God we were able to find an In & Out on the trip back!

Lisa's Birthday

Lisa celebrated her 30th birthday in early December, even though her birthday came and went in October. I drove up to LA to visit with she and Steven and it was really fun!

Lisa and Jenny - still celebrating birthdays together 25 years later!

Mr. and Mrs. Fox were there, too!

The birthday girl and her party-planning hubby!
