october… best month ever, NO doubt in our family. our anniversary, fall, halloween (duh!!!) and my daughter’s birthday! she turns eleven this month and we threw her a little halloween themed party at home and had a mini funbooth session as well. all-in-all sixteen, eleven-year-old girls. major wow! but so fun.
for those that stumble upon this and may not know, monday funday is a blog post that entails posting a few things that made me smile during the week or two preceding my previous post. the basis is really just to share and spread things that make me/us happy. i have been trying to get others to participate and i think i roped in my first victim, ahem! ruby rideout 🙂 so hopefully we’ll see her slinging some of her happy items around the www soon.
anyway, this week is an extra special start as i spent my weekend in phoenix for…
1. girl time.
let me say this; i have an amazing husband whom is truly my best friend (well….. most days) *wink* and two amazing kids i cannot live without *cough* (ok. again, most days) but when it comes to female relationships in my life, i cannot stress enough the importance of these bonds. i have been so blessed as i have aged with some real astonishing women and this sadly has not always been the case in my life. but what i can say is the wait has been above and beyond worth it to have such incredible women as friends now. i came home yesterday with one overly full heart. thank you ruby! 🙂
2. asian markets.
holy hecklesticks. this weekend we browsed an asian supermarket (my first time) and i think i died and went to heaven for a short while. it was huge! i saw vegetables i had no idea even existed. aisles and aisles of newness to feast my eyes on. i left with some amazing items and have already begun my feasting.
3. new little people.
i became an aunt to a new little guy this week. my sister-in-law and brother-in-law had a their baby, walter david doublin on friday. yay for newbie doublins! so exciting, just the thought of a whole new person experiencing life for the first time. i have seen so many past clients and friends as well share their exciting news of baby announcements and births that it has been a bit overwhelming but in the most wonderful way. ahhhh.
4. heated seats.
so i rented this car for my road trip and i totally splurged on one that had heated seats. i twitch a little admitting this but im a sucker for those things. i rode probably the entire way with it on. here’s to happy rumps!
i am a pretty hardcore this american life fan. i am even pretty convinced that my soul could shrivel up and die without this show. yeah. so radiolab is really giving it a run for its money. fan-flippin-tastic show! highly recommend!
