Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner. I love you. I have been waiting for such a long time to meet an eyeliner like you... The way you actually stay on my eyes all day and don't smudge, your dark black coal color, the way you go on so smoothly and easily, and the fact that I will never have to sharpen you. No more Maybelline, Cover Girl, Almay or even Mary Kay. Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner, I shall forever more stay faithful to you.

Kyler is gettin so big! He is 2 months old and a whopping 12 lbs. That's 43 percentile... so I guess that's pretty average for a 2 month old. It's just weird to see him grow so fast with my own eyes!

Sorry it’s been so long! It’s been a crazy past two weeks with the move and adjusting to the new life here in California. I’ll try to make up for it by making this post meaty.
The 14 hour drive was long, but good. Kyler and Bauer pretty much slept the entire way. We stayed the night in Reno, and made the rest of the drive to Cali the next day. We got a video camera for Christmas, so enjoy all of the random video clips I will be posting up here! Kyler is smiling more and more everyday, and is starting to make cooing noises while kicking his legs, it’s so cute!
It is so pretty here! I love how green everything is, and I LOVE driving down the street and seeing palm trees. When we first got here, we stepped out of the car and threw our jackets off saying “It’s 50 degrees here baby! Hot diggity!” and then we laughed at everyone around us in their winter coats. After living in Rexburg, we couldn’t believe they thought 50 degrees was cold….Two weeks later, and it seems we have already acclimated to the California weather, because now even Jared and I think that 50 degrees is cold.
The rumors about California drivers are TRUE. Some of them are absolutely crazy! They don’t gradually shift lanes, they just kinda scooch right in with out warning, also I’ve noticed that they LOVE to speed up really fast, and then slam on the breaks. Annoying.

The Cali apartment itself is nice! It has new carpet, fresh paint, and is pretty spacious. I’m not looking forward to going back to our old apartment once the internship is over.
The location of our apartment is another story altogether. It is totally and completely in the ghetto. The first night we were here we heard 2 gunshots outside our bedroom window. Bauer went from a dead sleep to sprinting into the next room where we were still unpacking our things with his tail tucked between his legs. When I walked out to our car, (smelling things that were NOT just cigarette smoke) I noticed the car next to ours had a …ummmm… I cant remember what it’s called, but its like a stick on the steering wheel with a lock, so that nobody can steal your car…Anyways, it had one of those on it. I had never seen one before, so I went in for a closer look…and then some lady yelled “Oh! Mmmmhmmm, do you LiiiiiKe that Cawr? I see youu lookin’ at ma Cawr. Do you liiiiiKe it?!” Awkward. She thought I was trying to steal it! Me! Little Char! HAH. Apparently when looking for an apartment, the nearest location according to Google is not the best approach. At least we feel secure to see a police car in our parking lot every night. Plus, Jared put boards and security alarms on our windows. Also, our door is made out of steel, with two separate deadbolts, so that makes me feel a little safer. When I have to go from the apartment to the car, I almost always bring Bauer with me. Everyone here is afraid of him because he is so big. Just trying to be safe!
The sign in the store said “All our candies are dolphin free” I’m not quite sure what that means…
Last weekend we explored old town Sacramento, and loaded up on candy from the Sweet Barrel Candy Store, and The Chocolate Factory. It was fun! We can't wait to explore the rest of Sacramento, and make a trip to San Fran soon!
