My Week in Pictures

Apr 3, 2014

It’s April my friends!  April means absolute MAYHEM at Kuzak’s Closet.  I’ve got organizing clients, estate sale families, and real estate agents calling me like crazy and I’m trying to keep my head above water.  We are officially booked through the middle of May.  Sounds like a good thing right?  WRONG! It just means we need to double and even triple book each day with projects.  I’ve got my team divided throughout Silicon Valley so we can conquer as much as we possibly can.

Let’s start with my favorite picture from the week…

People are the reason that I do what I do and this man is one of my favorite clients of all time.  He was so honest with his emotions and committed to the project we had to tackle in a short timeframe.  I snapped this picture of him saying goodbye to his childhood piano and it captures all of the reasons behind why I do what I do.

My Week in Pictures

1

Mar 20, 2014

As always, it was another eventful week at Kuzak’s Closet.  I chose not to do an estate sale this week so I could catch up on all of my organizing projects, consultations with new clients, and general business stuff before April hits.  It’s the busiest time of year (November is second) because both sides of my business collide.  Clients that have put off organizing resolutions set at the first of the year and families need to liquidate their parents’ homes so they can be apart of the spring real estate market.

Today I’m reviewing the highlights of the week. Most of the pictures are from Instagram. Do you use it? I love it!

I print my Instagram pictures through Printstagram.  This week I received a new order, mostly pictures from recent estate projects.  Don’t you love the picture of Bert from Sesame Street lifting weights?  One of my favorite moments of the year so far.

On Monday I shared pictures from a recent art studio organizing project. I got great feedback from all of you through the blog and Facebook.  Your comments and “likes” always make my day, keep it up! Continue Reading »

Staycation Saturday

Mar 9, 2014

We’ve had so many estate sales lately that I haven’t noticed the toll that it takes on my mind and body until this weekend.  I know this spring is going to be totally nuts with organizing and estate projects so I decided to have a rest week this weekend and not schedule a sale or any organizing sessions on Saturday or Sunday.

Chris was in Washington D.C. last week and returned home late Friday night.  (the real truth is that no estate sales and no husband is a relaxing combination.)  I knew Chris would be tired from traveling so I asked our friend Larry to visit for the weekend for a little Saturday Staycation in Los Altos.  He arrived after work on Friday and we had a really nice night out together at the Los Altos Grill.  They have the best food and people watching!

Saturday morning we all slept in a little and then headed out on a walk to Starbucks with Harper.  She was a happy girl!

Staycation Saturday

After our walk we went into downtown Los Altos for breakfast at Chris’ favorite spot, Rick’s Cafe.  They have great food and service.  I had the florentine scramble with eggs, spinach, garlic, mushrooms, and parmesan cheese, home fries, and a bagel.

Fab Friday!

Kuzak's Closet Fab Fridays

Today is the very first edition of Fab Fridays!  It’s easy to get down in the dumps looking at social media and blogs, doesn’t Facebook bring you down sometimes?  I’ve decided that instead of it making me crabby I am going to embrace it.  I’m going to look at everyday events as fabulous ones and reflect on what I’m thankful for in my life.  This series will run each Friday until Thanksgiving so stay connected.

Aside from me ranting and raving I want to hear from you too.  Tell me what’s fabulous in your life right now.  Have to tried a new recipe?  Bought a new shirt?  Potty trained your toddler?  Organized that area under the sink that always looks terrible?  Whatever it is I want to hear from you.  We may not be famous or fabulous but it’s okay to act like it on Fab Fridays!

First I want to share my new favorite sweater with you, it is FABULOUS!  It’s be Jennifer Lopez at Kohl’s and it goes with everything!  It looks more see-through in the picture online but it isn’t in real life.  I wore it out with skinny jeans and nude pumps this week…here is the look…

Kuzak's Closet Fab Fridays Pink J-Lo Sweater from Kohls

I’ll also wear it with leggings and boots this fall and winter.  It comes in pink and gray. If you use enough Kohl’s coupons you can get it on sale like I did.  I think I only paid $30 for it.  Gotta love J-Lo and Kohl’s!

Happy Birthday Chris

Kuzak's Closet Chris' Birthday

On Wednesday night I had a Mexican Fiesta birthday party for Chris and his friend Beza.  My friend Miguel recently bought a taco truck and I asked him if he would cater the party for me and he happily agreed.  Since Miguel had dinner covered I decided I would make a few desserts from scratch.  I tried a new recipe for a Rhubarb Crumple using my mom’s homemade Rhubarb jam (delish!), it was so good and I’ll share the recipe with you next week.  I also made a very simple Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake and my Mini Cheesecakes.

Kuzak's Closet Yosemite Wawona

I’m sharing part II of our Yosemite trip and a few pictures from a day in San Francisco with my family.  Yesterday’s post featured pictures from our first two days at the National Park and today I am giving you a look at the historic Wawona Hotel and the giant Sequoias in the Mariposa Grove.

The hotel was about a forty minute drive up into the mountains from the valley floor.  We stopped to take pictures of the main structure and the cottages on the property and decided to stick around for lunch.  It was the best meal that we had during our three days at the park.  I had homemade tomato basil soup and a little bit of Chris’ roasted turkey club sandwich with avocado.

Yosemite

May 13, 2013

I’m back to my normal routine this week after a fun week with my parents are older brother last week.  They stayed for 8 days and I had a jam-packed schedule for them.  Normally I let our guests relax but it was my brother’s first visit to California and he had a lot of sites on his wish list.  He wanted to see Pebble Beach, Carmel, Monterey Bay, Yosemite, Big Trees, Tahoe, and San Francisco and I tried my best to fit everything in.

Yosemite was definitely the highlight of the week, we spent 3 days at the National Park.  None of us had been there before and we couldn’t believe how beautiful and magical it is.  My pictures hardly capture how grand it really is, there is a stunning view around each bend and all of the waterfalls were running full force.  It really seemed surreal at times.

Because the park can be so busy this time of year I set up our reservations to stay back in January.  I did a lot of research and ended up finding a great room for us at Yosemite View Lodge.  We had a two room suite with two bathrooms a kitchen and a large balcony over the river.  The lodge had a nice restaurant where we had breakfast and dinner and we were able to pack a cooler with lunch goodies.  I would highly recommend staying at the lodge, it is just a few miles from the north gate of the park.
