Life Lately

Hello friends,

Life has been extremely busy lately, thus the radio silence on the blog here. So many holiday events, get togethers with friends, observations at work, prepping for Christmas and time in Tahoe.

Our neighbors got a wood-fired mini pizza oven, and we made our first batch a few weeks ago. They were amazing!!

I went to a pearl tea place with a friend and these were their signs outside. I loved it!

My brother and I baked apple donuts for the first time and they were deliiiish. I liked the donut holes the best!img_7553

To go with the apple donuts we made chili and I made the cornbread. Yum.

Also, we bought a Christmas tree….and then I got one for my house, and then one for my brother’s house. That’s how we ended up with 3 trees!

My tree all decorated. It only leans a little as it was hard to tell if it was straight in the tree holder as I live by myself.

I made biscotti as a holiday gift for friends, family and co-workers. I make both snickerdoodle and gingersnap! So tasty, I ate so many during the first batch there weren’t many to share.

Kim’s family had me over for their thanksgiving holiday party this past Sunday at their new house in San Carlos. I had so much fun, we did a while elephant exchange.

That’s it, life has been good and busy, but I promise I get back to posting more often!!

Love,

The Roomie and I had decorated our tree earlier last week and I think it looks adorable, but most importantly it also makes our little house feel very Christmas-y!

It was perfect because on Saturday the Roomie and I hosted our very own first Stella and Dot Party with Christina Saur Papoulias! It was such a blast to look at some beautiful jewels and have some girl time. Our kitchen has never looked so classy!

Christina made our place look so beautiful! She had so many cute things, it was hard to pick what I was going to order, because I liked everything. But, I’m in love with their poufs! I want one in every color! How cute are these two?!

The Roomie got the Tech Wallet in the Striped at a friend’s Stella and Dot Party last month, and I am super jealous how cute AND organized it is! It holds her phone, wallet and clips her keys!

It was a fantastic opportunity to do some Christmas shopping for my friends and family. I also got to use my cute new glasses that I picked up during Thanksgiving holiday break.

We had a whole lot of fun, and even dressed the pups up in some sparkly jewels! While they were patient for their treats, they were also very wiggly!
