The Best Season of All!

I love Christmas!!
It's by far my favorite Holiday of the year!!!
I love baking, crafting, Christmas music, Christmas lights, Christmas parties, ornaments, Christmas trees, the smell of a real tree!! I love it ALL!!!
This year I kicked off the Holiday season at Heidi's house!
It was the Second Annual "5 Favorite Things Party"
Each girls brings five of their favorite items, each item has to be identical! AND you get to go home with five new things!!
This year I brought mason jars filled with cotton balls, nail files, polish remover, an Essie nail polish, and Mustache drink markers!!
The party was such a hit and I got to go home with great gifts!!

Later that week our book club decided to forgo reading a book this month and get together for a nice dinner out. We ate at the Peasant and the Pear in Danville!! It was quite delicious!

And to end the week I had another Christmas Party Friday night at Jack's in Pleasant Hill.
It was so much fun! We also do a white elephant gift and I ended up with a Massage, Champagne, two glasses, and chocolate in the most adorable basket!
Thanks BONNIE :))
 My girlfriend Jordan works for a designer in LA and happens to know the owner of the Little Yellow Chick! So I did what anyone else would do duh, order a blanket. They are the most chic soft blanket I have ever had! EVER! I am crazy obsessed with it. It's the perfect girly blanket. Definitely a happy mail day.
 Have you seen the gold sleeves Starbucks sells? If not run and go get one :) Can't beat the $5 price tag
And last but not least please meet my newest co-worker Holly B. I hear she is reporting to Santa every night to tell him if I am a good girl or not :) Hope I'm good!!!

My Fall Fashion Must Haves

My Fall Fashion Must Haves
I seriously can't believe it's the beginning of November. Where has this year gone? Does anyone else feel like this has just flown by. By the end of summer I usually can't wait for the heat to go away and the temperature to start dropping. Tonight on the menu is vegetarian chili and cornbread! If that's not a fall meal I don't know what is!
I am so ready for the cozy weather, the one thing I hate is when the time changes and it starts getting dark at like 5 PM :(
I just got these Uggs but in the Chestnut color!! I love them.
Check these out!! New Ugg slippers I MUST have this year!! Love them!

I have been lusting over these bags forever and have yet to still purchase one. I am seeing the purchase of one in the very near future!

The second Fall arrives I am ready for Fall fingers and toes!! Love this plum color. My nails are currently a light gray and I am a bit obsessed!!
I am CRAZY about this hoodie from Lululemon!! And the best part is I already own it! I love all the small details on it, ruffly hood and it cinches together in the middle on the back!!
 I kinda love this long sleeve from Lululemon! Would be a perfect cozy outfit!
Now that it's November 1st, I am busting out my holiday bedding and listening to Christmas music and not feeling guilty one bit!! Oh and I may have to stop by Starbucks today for a red holiday cup!!!

The food was to die for! All the yummy muchies you could think of!!
