Friday, November 6, 2009

So now that it is November and the Christmas season is right around the corner, i've been thinking about gifts and trying to keep within budget...which means being very creative and making as much as my Christmas gifts as possible. That said, my wish list is totally opposite :)
Here it is...

I wish for an oversized OLD map of the world. In case you didn't know, i LOVE maps. I want a big one that covers a whole wall in my house someday. There is something about it that is so dreamy...
I wish for lots of cute functional storage boxes so i can de-clutter my little house and be stylish at the same time :)
I wish for all new cooking this little treasure. Its a simply grill pan. Mine are quite old and would love new ones.
I love this mirror....super vintage-ish and would look so cute on my wall above my bed. Last but not least, i wish for a cute new fresh short haircut, just like this!

Busy Month

Its been one busy month... so here is a recap in opposite order-
Of course Halloween was a hit. This year we had David Beckham, Ichiro and a rangers player. Saweet! We did all the festivities and trick and treating was a hit this year (unlike last year:)
BYU parade...where we got stocked up on candy that we thought would last us for a was gone that weekend. :)
Tyson and I were able to get away just the 2 of us and visit Texas. Tyson served his mission there and i really wanted to finally visit a 6 flags! We stayed with some good friends of ours..Brent and Britta and played spades every night until we were delirious.
Here we are at 6 flags..which by the way was the funnest place EVER! We were like 6th graders running from ride to ride!
We visited the fort worth stock yards...just like i imagined Texas would be like. I loved it. We were also able to visit some of Tyson's old areas and of course visited some old mission friends.
Owen had a birthday party with friends which wore us ALL out. We played pin the arm on the skeleton, made witches brew, colored bags, had relay races and ate donuts.
Owen loved every minute of it.
Now, on to November and a whole lot of Christmas shopping, light decorating, thanksgiving eating and visitin sister of course.
