Before Q and I took off for London, we spent a weekend in San Francisco. Well technically we spent 24 hours in San Francisco. Q and I both are big mileage status people aka we like our airline status! Q was going to be short 960 miles if he didn’t take a last minute trip, so we decided San Fran it would be. We took it as an opportunity to visit my aunt, uncle and cousin who live there. We had fun drinks and then a delicious dinner at Wayfare Tavern (highly recommended PS).
My New Year’s Day treat is always a burger from In N Out. I hardly ever eat red meat, so this is my once a year burger. And I love every minute of it, and then don’t want to eat another burger until next New Years.
I’m more of a seafood girl, you know what I mean?
PS this is not a great photo, but the new portobello mushroom salad at Sweetgreen is to die for. Their winter menu is on point.
I woke up to 60 degrees this morning and Q and Carl woke up to SNOW! Carl actually tolerates the snow quite well, what a trooper!
I attended a bridal shower this weekend and wore one of my favorite dresses (Kate Spade) with some fun leopard heels (Jessica Simpson).
Oh my gosh, how have 2 weeks gone by without me blogging? I suppose that means it is officially December, which feels like the busiest month of the year. Who is SO ready for Christmas? ME! This girl and Q are going to London to spend some time with his mom for the holidays. I love London during the holidays (fun side note, I spent 6 months living there while I studied abroad in college)! Q has never been, so it’ll be a blast to show him around.
I sent this to Q asking him if I should get it. He never responded, should I take a hint?
I also sent these to Q asking him to put them under the tree for me. He responded with, “Is this a joke?” To be fair, I think they are so cute, and they are only house shoes!
But I did end up snagging these adorable loafers, sequined blazer and cozy scarf for my trip (and for fun holiday parties).
Speaking of fun holiday parties, during mine I met Martha! My idol! Her company is owned by the same company as my boss’s, so she was there and I totally geeked out and asked her for a picture. Her skin is amazing for 74! (Also who knew that curling my hair made me look so fancy?).
Last random thing- am I crazy or are these clear clutches sort of cool to organize things in your purse?
Happy holiday party-ing!
Oh hi! Just me again! It’s been a busy couple of weeks!
It started when I surprised Q and flew home for a quick weekend (which meant I spent all of 0 weekends in LA the month of November).
The following week, I flew back to Tennessee to celebrate Q’s new promotion as a company commander. We entertained many of his family members and finally got to show off our house (which Q has been working at).
I flew home for Thanksgiving (no turkey for us, but instead a gluten free lasagna), and then to New York for a quick weekend. Carl and I spent a lot of Thanksgiving day like this:
We did have a fabulous friendsgiving hosted by friends in LA. I loooove fall tablescapes.
My favorite travel party shoes (yes, Q did not understand them at all).
And now a week in NY for work before heading back to LA! Can you even believe that it is already about to be December?!
I took Carl back to Tennessee last weekend to spend a few months with his dad. I could not believe how beautiful Tennessee was! Leaves falling, a crisp breeze in the air, I thought to myself “oh THIS is what fall is!”
I’m not going to lie though, Carl wasn’t too excited to get on a plane again.
I celebrated my 30th birthday last Saturday! Holy moly, my twenties are gone! I celebrated with a fun birthday dinner with my girlfriends the week prior and on my actual birthday (Halloween) Q, Carl and I handed out candy to trick or treaters and had wine and pizza (my favorites and our annual tradition).
Headed to NY this weekend, Q is meeting me for what is going to be a super fun weekend with friends!
