Fabulous Friday

I've had this love for GOLD for a long time. Most people tend to go towards silver, bronze - but me, I love gold. I'm not talking about the gaudy gold, gold jewelry, gold cherubs. Of course, those are not the kind of pieces I'd ever buy anything in gold, not that they're bad, except for maybe the cherubs, it's just not my taste. But I love gold shoes, gold accent pieces, you will too after today's Fabulous Friday.

Do you agree? Gold done right is fabulous.

Pumpkin Time

This past weekend has been a whirlwind of Harvest Fest, Pumpkin Patches and Trick or Treatin'. Too much fun, mainly for the niece.

 (some photos of her in costume at Disneyland)

Picking her first pumpkin, of course trying to take a bite.

Trick or Treatin' was such a blast. When you see three adults with a 15 month old toddler, your first thoughts are that the candy is going straight to the adults. Well, this Snow White had her own ideas about trick or treating. She was determined to carry her own jack o' lantern pail (pink I might add) and to walk up and get her own candy. She then proceeded to say "thank you" and walk away. Only to turn around and try to get more. She was a pro!

Snow White turned into Sleeping Beauty and we opted to head home rather than hit up the rest of the neighborhood that was overflowing with kids.

I'd say Halloween 2011 was a huge success for this family.

Happy Candy Eating!

Hello again...

It's been said, blogging is a way to change the world and share your shopping list... all at the same time.

I started blogging many years ago (on another blog) and after 440+ post, I decided to start fresh here. Months have gone by and I haven't posted. I miss it.

Who knows if I'll ever have readers again :). I can't help but feel the void of jotting down memories, opinions, ideas and what not.

So, let me try to get back in the groove and see if I can keep up at least once a week... hopefully more.

I'm Dreamin' of....

New York City

My big plan was always to take a trip to Paris. Spend my days eating, shopping, walking the city, visiting the museums.... but I've changed my dream trip a little bit. Okay, a lot.

New York City. Why?

I'm a fan of  Selling New York on HGTV.

I am a suburban girl. I always have been, but somewhere deep inside there must be a city girl, by city I mean sky scrapers, taxi's and busyness.

I think the architecture and colors are beautiful. I want to walk the streets, smell the air, watch the traffic go by and sit at a corner cafe people watching.

Maybe one day, rent an apartment like this...
Maybe... one day... before I change my mind. ;)

A Rylie Post

Look who's getting big...

At eight months (today), Rylie is almost crawling, two teeth pushed through and has a little attitude.
Being a preemie, she is doing things a little late, but is advanced in other areas. She's a little little girl, only 14 1/2 pounds. 100% Spitfire!

Okay, enough facts, onto the cuteness....
