Eye Spy Thursday Revealed!

I spy with my little eye; a Graveyard.... ooooooo

In case you couldn't tell by my fun new layout, I'm starting to get into the Halloween spirit (pun intended)  I only have a few of my decorations out, and I'll be doing the rest after I dig them out of my parents and grandmothers garages this weekend :-)  I got these tombstones at Micheals aka Housewife Heaven a couple of weeks ago

They were 40% off.  So now I have a cool graveyard in front of our fireplace (which is perfectly safe by the way because the gas to it is turned off and the pilot light is NOT lit)  I really like the way it turned out :-)

See you on Pink Saturday!  And don't forget about Eye Spy Thursday next week, where the theme will be I Spy with my little eye; something that begins with "H"

Eye Spy Thursday

Hello everyone!  Welcome to Eye Spy Thursday!  Here's your hint!

I Spy with my little eye; something that begins with "G"
Any guesses?  Comment away!  Have your own Eye Spy post?  Link in below!  I'll reveal my photo at 5pm PST.

Wedding Wednesday

Welcome to Wedding Wednesday, where bridesmaid dresses have been chosen!!

My awesome MOH (Maid of Honor) picked them out and I love them because the chiffon fabric really compliments my dress!  She's also making jewlery to compliment my dress, check out the link to her Etsy shop in my side bar.  Anyway the dress is from J-Crew which, it turns out, has developed an entire wedding line.  Apparently this is the new trend for popular retailers... Ann Taylor has a wedding line too (who'd have thought it?)  Now on to finding shoes for them... and for me :-)  See you tomorrow for Eye Spy Thursday!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Special thanks again to our hostess Beverly over at How Sweet The Sound!  Be sure to stop by and see what others have done :-)


This is a sunset in Lake Tahoe from about a year ago, when there were so many fires out there. The smoke made the sun look deep pink and the sky all around it pink and purple. It was an amazing sight! There was another sunset similar to this in Santa Cruz just a month ago during all the Santa Cruz mountain fires... but that picture didn't turn out as good...

Mosaic Monday

Welcome everyone to Mosaic Monday!  Be sure to stop by Little Red House and see what our hostess, and others, have in store.

Today I have a mosaic of wedding planning stuff.  I've posted a lot of these pictures in seperate posts as part of my weeking Wedding Wednesday updates, but for those of you that haven't been following Wedding Wednesday here is a sneak peek of some of the wedding planning stuff that's been going on :-) also let us know this week that we have less than 200 days until the big day!  I'm suddenly feeling like I still have a lot to get done!!

Hope you all are set to have a fabulous week!!

Pink Saturday, Pink Saturday.... Wherefore art thou Pink Saturday

So... for those of you who came here only to be disappointed by the lack of Pink Saturday, here is what happened.

My little netbook laptop, with ALLLLLLL my pictures on it, suddenly died on Friday afternoon.  After spending an hour using simple, one syllabull, words to communicate with the less than competent Gateway tech support, it has been determined that the charger for the computer bit the dust.  Luckily the computer is under warrenty and a new charger will arrive sometime in the next two weeks.

I can still take new pictures this week and upload them to Rob's computer to make all my posts until then, but the work I had already done for yesterday is trapped inside the laptop :-(

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!  See you tomorrow for Mosaic Monday!

An Award from Sherry!

On Tuesday I received this award from Sherry over at Country Wings in Phoenix!  I was so pleased!  Make sure you stop by her site if you haven't before and check it out!

So, now my understanding is I can select up to 8 others to offer this award to.  People who deserve to be recognized for their kindheartedness, and good nature.  I don't actually know tons of fellow bloggers because I'm still fairly new to it, so I don't have 8  people, but I do know a few worth noting.  All of whom have wonderful blogs, and a wonderful nature.

Robin @ Miscellaneous Thoughts

Corrine @ 101 Goals in 1001 Days 

Nerina @ NicNac Maniac

Erin @ The Wilsons

Lori E @ Family Trees May Contain Nuts

All lovely ladies (two of them family) Stop by their blogs if you get the chance :-) And thanks again to Sherry for the award!!

Wedding Wednesday

Welcome to Wedding Wednesday!  Today you get a second instalment of my visit from Robs parents!  We spent a day in San Francisco and a day on the coast in the Carmel/Big Sur area.  Here are some pics:

Here is Rob's mom, Cindy, and I at The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco.

This one is Me, Rob, Cindy, and Rob's father Gary.
On our day in the city my parents met Rob's parents for the first time.  Here's all of us at Ghirardelli Square eating the best sundaes on the planet!

Gary and Cindy at a wine tasting we all went to at Cheateu Julien in Carmel Valley

The four of us along the 17 Mile Drive through Pebble Beach
Gary and Cindy at Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur. The weather was UNBEARABLY hot, which is so out of character for Big Sur, but we still had fun :-)

It was a great trip!  Looking forward to being on their side of the fence when we go visit them in November!

Mosaic Monday Is Back!

Well the last couple of weeks have been crazy, but I'm back to participating in Mosaic Monday, hosted by Little Red House!

My fiance and I love going to the local farmers market whenever we can afford to. The fresh produce is all so, so good. I love cooking with it, and the site of all the fresh food is also pretty awesome.

I love it! Hope you all enjoy your Labor Day holiday!

Eye Spy Thursday Revealed
Auto Posting Glitch

Hey Everyone!

I had my Eye Spy Thursday reveal set to auto-post and it failed me! But here it is:

I spy with my little eye a dog walker:

We saw a few of these dog walker guys when we were in San Francisco. How nice would it be, to be so rich you don't even have to walk the dog. Honestly, I'd spend my money on other things and still walk my own dog.

See you next week when the theme will be "I spy with my little eye, something that begins with 'E'"

Wedding Wednesday
Better late than never

Well the visit from Robs parents went really, really well! My blog has been suffering though, with getting ready for them to come, them being here, getting organized since they've been gone. But I finally have a Wedding Wednesday post for you! Engagement party pictures!





It was a lot of fun! And, I feel so much more relaxed now that I've met "the parents" :-)
