Christmas Ideas

Christmas Ideas

Merry Christmas!

Girls night out...

Cheer, Kate and I had a fun night of shopping and eating out last Saturday. Unfortunately we got no pictures of us all together but I did get a shot of Cheer right after a mannequin literally fell on her at the Gap. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. She took it like a real women. I am laughing just looking at these photos!

Candy making with Kate...

Kate and I spent 7 hours last Friday night making homemade Christmas candy. I have such fond memories of my mom and her friends getting together every year for candy night. I thought it might be fun to try out some of their recipes and start our own tradition. We made English toffee, penuche, white & milk chocolate cranberry bark and fudge coconut balls. We were very pleased with the results! Thanks mom for all the words of encouragement!

I'm not bragging, I'm just excited!

In just 8 days Brad and I will be traveling to... visit these people (Sean, Kelly,Shannan, Connor, Erin and Liam).

Then we will head to this amazing place...

...where we will spend New Years Eve in Venice with these fun people.

Julia and Jonathan are going to leave us in Venice and Brad and I are going to continue our journey visiting Lago di Garda, Cinque Terre, Florence with a final stop in Rome.

Does it get any better than that?? I don't think so. But... I will confirm when I get back.

Brad and I have been saving for and dreaming about this trip for the last 5 years. It has not really seemed real until this week as we begin making our final preparations.

Merry Christmas to all!!!

Thanksgiving dinner is Mexico was much better than expected. I had planned to take photos of each course but they all looked so good when they arrived I forgot. oops.

We had a great trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico over Thanksgiving. Brad's parents had a condo that needed to be used in 2009 so we decided to head south to the warmth. Due to a couple of different circumstances his parents decided not join us so it ended up to be just Brad and I. We missed our families (really we did) but made the best of it. :) We slept a ton, swam, watched movies on the beach, ate, snorkeled and sunbathed. I would highly recommend it.

Just another Friday night...

Kudo's to Brad for planning such an amazing night. We flew out of the Palo Alto airport just in time to see the tail end of the sunset, flew over the bay and arrived in Napa in under 30 minutes! We had dinner at Jonesy's (at the airport) then back over San Francisco to get home. The views were unbelievable! Thanks to Rob for getting us up and down safely!

Did you know that this past Monday and Tuesday were feel sorry for Liz day? If not... you really missed out. There was a lot of wallowing, complaining, worrying, anxiety, over-thinking, rambling, snide remarks and maybe a tear or two . They were really "great"days. In the midst of these "productive" days I stumbled upon this video. I watched it. Then I watched it again. Then I felt better. If were only always that easy. I hope you watch it and I hope it makes you feel better too. Just click on this link...

"Run this Town"...worth watching.

Palo Alto Moonlight Run...

(Brad, Liz, Whit, Brit and Elias)
This is such a fun run. It is at night on a trail that circles a portion of the bay. Brad ran it with out training and of course finished ahead of me. I hate boys. The only saving grace was that he hurt for a couple days and I felt fine! It was a ton of fun training with these girls. Thanks for making us run fast "er" Whitney!

This is why you should not make fun of people...

Every time I speak to my friend Jenna I end up making "fun" of something she says or does. It's all in good fun and we always laugh about it later but I always end up eating my words. For example when she first moved to California I made fun of her for not having any closed toed shoes. She was like "Were in Cali! You can wear open toed shoes year round" I was like " its Winter" Fast forward 5 years and I have realized that I am in fact "In Cali" and that you can in fact "wear open toed shoes year round". Eating my words.

Well, on Sunday I was talking to Jenna who had just got home from apple picking with her family. Of course, I giggled and compared my recent escapades to hers stating "Well, I am sure it was not as fun as apple picking but it was a good time".
Fast forward 5 minutes ago to a phone conversation with my mom. I called her to tell her I missed her. She said they had just got home from apple picking and wondered if I wanted to come over and make apple sauce with them. I cried. All I want to do right now is go apple picking. Eating my words.
