Here we go! After much hype (as I’m sure you’re all hyped up!) our blog is about to launch! For our first post, here are a few things about us. Soon, you will be able to enjoy our Pinteresting (and our Pinteresting fails), the recipes that are rocking our world’s, some fashion fun, some new ‘dos, and reviews on books, movies, and events. We hope you enjoy our blog as much as much as we’ve enjoyed making it!

Hola! I’m LG. I’m a California girl in Washington, DC. I spent 11 years of my life in Fresno, including college. I came out to DC to get out of Fresno, but of course just found myself another Fresnan to cling to. I work in government affairs. I’ve got a giant boyfriend who we call Big Sug. If I’ve had a terrible day Big Sug takes me shopping. I would not call myself a fashionista, but I do an OK job of getting myself dressed in the morning. I rarely leave the house without makeup. If I’ve had a mediocre day or it’s a weekend, I’m doing crafts. I am a short sentence writer, because I was always reamed in school for my run-on sentences. I take very little seriously. I am often mistaken for Snooki.


Hey! I’m Whitney. Until 3 years ago, I’d never lived anywhere other than the beautiful Golden State. And then I decided to pack up and move to the other side of the country, just because I could. I adore DC but I had to find another Californian to hang out with to make it truly amazing. I used to work for the federal government but since my boss retired, I’m searching for my next gig. I’m single and frequently tell LG and Big Sug tales of my ridiculous social life, in exchange for rides to Costco and home cooked meals. I’m a t-shirt, jeans and ponytail girl, but I love to trick LG into dressing up me and my hair and making me look fancy on occasion. I’m obsessed with make up but frequently can’t be bothered to put on anything but mascara before I run out the door – usually 15 minutes late. I clearly have no problem with my use of run-on sentences.
