Happy Monday!

Got a new cell phone case from the Apple store that I love, its so bright and fun.

Also found these treats Frap loves, perfect size for him.

Sent some holiday clothes to my goddaughter Ava, so cute.

Off to dinner with two of my co workers!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been having a very quiet day hanging with Frappy, doing laundry, and catching up on my DVR. 
At times Ive been sad as I think about past years and how different it is with certain family members no longer with us. 
Kyle is AZ with his folks, and I am working the rest of the weekend.
Here are a few things I'm thankful for.

Nor Cal Trip

This weekend I had the privilege of watching my niece and nephew while my older sister spent some time with her husband. I headed up with my younger sister Friday morning and got there a little after lunch time.  I took the kids to Target to get out of the house, they are 2 & 5 and love Target like the rest of us. I got Madi a Hello Kitty coloring book and a new Cars toy for Caden. We picked up Taco Bell for dinner and headed home. We spent lots of time coloring, which I enjoyed just as much!
There were some cute pages to color, this one not so much.

Saturday morning I made pancakes, even attempted Mickey ones :)

Snuggling on the couch

More coloring... the little one likes to paint her face with markers so I had to keep a watchful eye on her!

And on the way home, it rained and rained. But there was a pretty rainbow

I am bummed I didn't get to see my older sister too much but looking forward to their visit next month.

Out of town...

I am blogging from Northern California this weekend as I am up at my sisters watching the kiddos. While they nap, I thought I would catch up on my blogging. While I had two days off last week, I hit up Victoria Secret for the 7 for $26 dollar sale. I got lucky because it was the last day. Score!

It was also the year I had to get a smog check on my car, thankfully it passed. I am thinking of selling the car to my sister in March and getting myself something new. I have had my Civic for 7 years! I am thinking a Honda Crv or something...
I had just had a pedicure so I let my toes finish drying in the sun :)

And lastly, I love this little girl.

Happy weekend friends xo

Rainy, Windy, and Cold

This weekend we had some COLD weather. I am not a fan of being cold, so I usually like to stay indoors at all costs. 
This weekend was enjoyable, didn't go by too fast either which is nice. We took my sis out to dinner Friday, Saturday we ran errands and then went to a friends house to watch the UFC fights. And yesterday, we went to the mall in a neighboring town but sadly didn't find anything to buy. We ended up having lunch at Mongolian BBQ which was pretty good. 

Today is my Monday, back to work this afternoon. Only 5 more nights of working til 3:20 in the morning. I might need to go buy myself some gloves to drive home in...
Of course I sip on my Winter Dream Tea Latte, so delicious.

The 1st of November

Wow, its November!! I am so excited the holiday season is here!! 
Hope you all had a great Halloween!! We were planning on going to a friends house, but I ended up walking Frappy and meeting our new neighbors and we talked until it was dark that it was too late to really make it to our plans. Our neighbors just moved here from Atlanta and don't know anyone, so we are excited to take them out and show them around. We are off to dinner with them in a few!!
Here are some pictures I wanted to share!!
My cute niece and nephew!!

Goddaughter Ava

I went to Target at 8am to score on Halloween stuff!
Can't wait to give this to my niece next year!!
