The boyfriend and I had a lovely afternoon today that consisted of taking Brooklyn to the pumpkin patch and then a visit to the Meditation Gardens at the Self Realization Fellowship Temple in Encinitas (A gorgeous and serene must see if you are in the area).
The pumpkin patch, a necessity for me every October, was abound with small children adorned in orange and black with funky spiderweb and ghost clad socks, sparkley-painted faces and I think I even saw a Halloween tutu. Boyfriend made the astute observation that we were the only people that brought the DOG and not the kid to the patch to take pictures. But, he humored me nonetheless and posed with that rockstar smile. Here are some photos from our afternoon!
And here's a little tune to get y'all in the spirit:) Happy Halloween!
Today, I am looking forward to spending a lovely evening with a great friend and the author of the fabulous blog The Lonely Wife Project. We plan to drink lots of wine, watch lots of OC reruns, eat lots of yummy food (thank goodness one of us is a good chef, I cheated and got my dessert contribution from the local bakery, shhh) and just enjoy the company of another estrogen fueled beautiful being. Girls' nights are so important for our sanity and well being. Sometimes it's tough to remember to take time out from our busy work schedules, significant others, kids, pets, families etc. to just relax in the company of the ladies, but I'm sure glad we get to do it occasionally! What do y'all like to do with your gal pals?
Here's what's new on my Ipod this week that screams CHICK MUSIC to me!! I love it!
So I went and did exactly what I swore I would not do and got all gung-ho about my blog for the first couple weeks and then fell off the face of the earth. Shame on me. I must admit, finding the comments on the below article featuring my beautiful baby made my night (Thank you ladies!)
So in my defense.. this blog is about Saturn Return, and I DID turn 29 last week..so my life must be in complete chaos now officially and I was totally distracted by all the cosmic unrest I was subjected to, right?....You are not buying this, clearly.
Actually, I had a fabulous birthday thanks to wonderful family, friends and my adorable boyfriend. There was food a' plenty, thoughtful gifts, beautifully written cards and several glasses (cough, bottles) of wine drunk over the course of the celebration. I am truly blessed with a great life right now and I really can't complain...Who am I kidding, I'm a girl, I'm sure I can find SOMETHING to complain about!
In lieu of my birthday, I bit the bullet and finally made a purchase that I have been wanting to make for several years now and bought the elusive and over-priced Tory Burch ballet flats (thanks Mom and Dad for the Nordie's gift card)!
These are the ones I bought...Nothing too crazy.
And here are some other new ones from this season:
How do we feel about Tory Burch? Hot and you have to have'em? Over-priced and your pinky toe is squished and uncomfortable? Thoughts, ladies?
And thank you for your patience with me as I get this blog a'rollin!
