Grateful for Family

I am grateful for having married into a terrific family! Dana's father, Ron (not pictured), is the excellent photographer. I'm also grateful that my family loves them as much as I do!

Ahhhh..... fresh air

We're out in California this week and it's been so nice to get outside and hike around Monterey and Carmel and walk along the beach. Quite a beautiful place to be!

We also made it to the Monterey aquarium - one of our favorite places to visit. I LOVE the jelly fish exihibit! It's magical yet peaceful at the same time.

Looking forward to a fresh start

Last week was a tough week to be honest with you. In one week, the Vice President of my current team was let go from the company. In addition, my previous Vice President transferred offices. Finally, my Vice President from before that sadly passed away from a brain tumor. That last one was the toughest because she was young, talented and a friend. Ugh! It was one of those weeks where I just wanted to go back to bed and stay there until the week was over and I could start fresh again.

Anyhow, I'm off to hopefully a new start tomorrow and I hope that this week is a better one! I'm crossing my fingers and saying my prayers for a GREAT week before Christmas break begins.

I finally did it!

For awhile now I've been wanting to go to this new place that opened up in Frisco called Painting with a Twist. It's sort of like those paint-your-own-pottery places, except that you paint a real painting while a real artist talks you and your group through it. You can bring in adult beverages and it has a cool atmosphere and fun music too. Such a neat place!

I finally got to go this week and this is what I created...

My latest purchase

I just purchased a new Frito-Lay clutch/wristlet from Ecoist. I don't want to be a dork but think I'll actually carry this around - It's pretty cute and really well made!
