November Highlights...

 Yes I have been majority MIA lately. But for good reasons. :) this past month has been quite busy, but a fun busy. I have been picking up much more work then usual and I feel like I am constantly running around town. I was also out of town for 3 weekends this past month. I was in San Francisco visiting some girlfriends, then we were in Carmel doing our family photographs, which was a blast, and finally we made a trip up to the cabin to relax.

We are hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year and I have finally finished all the ideas for the day. Now to actually execute them. This should be interesting. I have a few good recipes I pulled off of Pinterest which I think will turn out great.

Speaking of  Pinterest, I attended a Pinterest party last saturday, which I think is one of the best ideas I have heard of in a long time. Basically you pick a craft and a dish and bring 10 craft items to the party for a gift exchange. I am not crafty at all but managed to make some really cool chalkboard cheese plates! It was actually pretty fun and I now want to do more crafts!

This is short but I wanted to share some highlights over the past month or so:




My son the Viking for Halloween

Was so happy to hang out with my friend Erin in San Francisco. Was a blast catching up

Eating lunch at the ferry building next to the creepiest doll I have ever seen


Sweaty dancing out in SF

Claire insisted on wearing goggles. She has been going through a big phase where she wants to pick out her outfits and continually do costume changes throughout the day.

Tom being cute in his baby towel

Our cool Thanksgiving plates

Nik getting out on the golf course while my friend and I sat back and sipped bloody marys.



And we FINALLY painted the dark red room and Claire's hot pink room yay!
