Silk Floral Dress

Well the Holidays are in full swing! Both trees are decorated and I did the outside lights yesterday. We just got home from our Disneyland trip this week and I need a vacation from our vacation! Although it was a blast, I am definitely ready to relax and have a quiet Christmas here at home (well after my Nutcracker performances). I feel like the Holidays come and go too quickly and sometimes its important to slow down and take it all in.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

This post is a little out of the ordinary for my blog. It’s not about pretty dresses or where the best sales are. Although, I love talking about all of those things! I was supposed to write about pajamas this week. I’m shrugging my shoulders as I type that. Next week, guys.

As some of you know, last year I had major spine surgery for severe scoliosis (83 degree S curve among other issues). I suffered a variety of complications and it’s been one heck of a year to say the least. My spine is now fused fourteen levels with twenty five screws and two metals rods that go basically the entire length of my spine. In the midst of all of that, my daughter Emma, who was seven at the time, was diagnosed with scoliosis.

Let the Thanksgiving preparations begin! I type this as my husband is hard at work getting all of my Christmas decorations out from the garage. Every year he complains about how many tubs I have and every year I add more to the mix. Sorry Neil, what can I say, I love the holidays and I love to buy things!

Plaid Wool Pants

My friend Megan and I, recently met for coffee at our favorite local French bakery, Casse Croûte in downtown Livermore. It’s so nice to get out with other women and socialize with someone over the age of two. It’s not something I get to do that often, but what a great escape it is when I can. Our monthly chats are something I so look forward to. It’s like therapy and we can vent about whatever we want. Megan also takes some of the pictures for my blog and I teach her two adorable daughters ballet.
