Houndstooth Mini Skirt

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!

Dinner Date at Palomino

As most of you know, my husband, Neil, and I try and take the time to go on a date night once month. In a perfect world, we would do this more often. However, juggling the kids, sports practice, ballet, work and everything else, it’s pretty amazing if we escape to dinner alone at all. We chose to take a trip out to San Francisco for the day and eat dinner at Palomino.

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.

The Chambray Dress

Sitting around this morning, I realized I didn’t write a blog about this chambray dress I wore to Rubino Vineyards last month. I received so many messages asking about this dress, and so here it is. This dress may be sold out, but I have added some links to a few others that are similar and totally affordable. So check it out!
