“…And That’s What’s Happening Today in the Bay.”

Posted by in Weekly Life

Taylor and I went for a visit in the newsroom this morning. I introduced him to my morning show coworkers and gave him a tour of the set. He met Laura, one of the anchors, and was quite smitten… We also practiced his on-camera skills. He checked out the anchor desk and even took a shot at the weather forecast, showing some heavy snow in Tahoe this week. Now all that’s left is to teach him to write scripts and edit video, and he’ll be the next great producer. We’ll…read more

Love Means Nothing

Posted by in Weekly Life

At least in tennis. Brady and I celebrated Valentine’s day this year by going to the SAP Open in San Jose. We got super-awesome seats to watch Andy Roddick. That’s us before the first match started. Yes, that’s Andy Roddick. I was like less than 100 feet away from him. But this was actually the day after Valentine’s day, so before I get to that, let’s talk about our super-romantic “love day.” Don’t worry, it’s actually pretty funny. Brady and I exchanged Valentines in the morning, when I got home…read more

Checking in…

Since it’s been a few months since we checked in here, I’ll give you a quick photo rundown of what we’ve been up to. September: Brady’s parents came to visit. We took them to see the highlights of San Francisco, then up to the North Bay to check out Muir Woods (Redwood Forest.) This is them next to a 1,000-year-old tree. We also took Brady’s parents down to 17-Mile Drive on the Monterey Peninsula. It covers a lot of beautiful coastline scenery…and it’s where all the ritzy golf courses are….read more

Moving Mountains [of cardboard]

Posted by in Major Events

Moving stresses me out. Especially when everything is in boxes…and you know you’ll have to unpack it all. (That’s only the kitchen…but you get the idea.) A couple weeks ago we moved into our official home here in Silicon Valley. And since Apple is totally awesome, they paid for movers to pack up our stuff and drive it out here. Of course, they hired the best of the best, so everything was packed VERY thoroughly. Everything was wrapped in paper. EVERYTHING. It’s great for keeping things safe in transit, but…read more

On the Hunt

Posted by in Major Events

It’s Saturday afternoon…a pleasant 70 degrees in San Jose, California. We’re parked outside an apartment complex, waiting for our 2 o’clock viewing appointment, applications in hand. I feel like a vulture circling over my next meal. Brady and I spent all day Friday prowling around Santa Clara, San Jose, Sunnyvale, and Cupertino, searching for an apartment to rent. We had some help from a relocation specialist, which certainly made things a lot less stressful. But let’s face it, apartment hunting is still exhausting. Apartment hunting in the Bay Area has…read more
