Golden Fall

Happy Halloween

Pumpkin Party

On Saturday, Husband and I had some friends over to carve pumpkins, eat pizza and play games.

I carved a Harry Potter pumpkin, just because I wanted to do the lightning scar. Husband liked the grim reaper stencil.

Happy Haloween!

Festive Burro

For Emily.

Happy All Saints Day.


Speaking of adventure...


I love airplanes. They usually mean something exciting is happening.

Because leaving on adventures are coming home again are both exciting.

Mexican Getaway

I am absolutely drooling over these Mexican Getaway packages from Ever After.

I mean, right?

Classy Clutch

Ok, next on the Christmas list:

THIS beautiful, classy, leather, hand-made clutch. (Handmade leather for $64!? Awesome.)

I have this bad habit of carry around gigantic purses, because, what if I need a brush, a notebook, a novel, a wallet, a check book, advil, 15 pens, 6 lip glosses, a pocket knife, a leatherman, vitamins, scissors, face powder, business cards, thank you notes, an ipod, a digital camera, an iphone, two pairs of sunglasses, a fork and a scarf... ALL in the SAME DAY. And what if I didn't HAVE one on hand?!

I would be...

I can't even say it...


Heaven forbid.

This may be the beautiful little purse that I need to cure me of my purse-hoarder tendencies.

Machu Picchu

One of my life dreams is to visit Machu Picchu.

Have you heard that they are going to close it to tourism soon? I keep wondering if its true or if its just a publicity stunt. Like J Lo and Ben Affleck. I didn't believe that was real for one second. But he's married to Jennifer Garner now, and I think she's adorable. Anyone who has ever watched Alias has to be just a little bit in love with Jennifer Garner. I was sad that Alias only did 5 seasons. Psych is on its 6th season! I hope they never stop making Psych, it makes me happy. It's clean, its clever, and the long running jokes are hilarious. I totally plan on giving my friends pineapples with bows for Christmas. Have you ever had the grilled pineapple at Tucano's? Ooo. So yummy. I've tried doing it on my George Foreman at home, and it was pretty good, but not the same. Do you know what though? The Foreman makes super delicious panini's. I make one with turkey bacon and avocado the other day. Did you see that Weekend Update where Seth Meyers quoted Kate Moss as saying that "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels" to which Seth responded "Bacon." I laughed.

Where was I?...

Oh right...

Machu Picchu.

I totally want to go there.

Button Cookies!

All you need is a shortbread recipe, two biscuit cutters (one slightly smaller than the other), and a drinking straw (to make the holes).

Found it here.

Ain't it the truth?

 My adorable friend Jane found this and sent it to me. THANKS JANE!

Coral Earrings

Bright and beautiful.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...


Mac Decals

Snow White's Revenge is still my favorite, but these are pretty fun...

Honey Badger

For Husband.

Have you seen the incredibly famous Honey Badger YouTube video? Ever since we saw it I have taken to calling Husband "Honey Badger." He does not necessarily appreciate this.

(**WARNING** Video contains some not very nice language, do not play if it will bother you, or if preschool toys are present.)

I still have siblings in high school, that's my excuse. What's yours?

I LOVE this color.


Corn Dog Recipe

Leave it to Pioneer Woman to come up with the perfect corn dog recipe. I've been looking for the right one for a long while.

Bread Dough

Is there anything more comforting?

My cousin's gorgeous wedding

My cousin got married a few months ago and the pictures are finally out. She has exquisite taste. It looks like a fairytale.


Oh, and they look like Barbie and Ken.


Glass Beach

Glass Beach just made it to the top of my "Northern California To Do" list.

Americana Map

 Do you see the stripe of baseball?

Cheese or Font?

Ha!!! This is an online game that gives you a name and you have to guess if it is the name of a cheese or the name of a font! Perfect to play with design geeks and cheese snobs alike.

 I'm a little bit of both and even I had to scratch my head a few times.

a little luck
