Cool glass of water

This week has been refreshing...just like the cool glass of water I'm drinking right now. Mad and I had a great rest of her visit (so happy she came to see me!), I had a good week at work, and a really fun weekend. Fall is definitely here now and I'm pulling out my sweaters, jackets, and scarves...I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season today...Han just came in and plopped down on my pile of pillows and is now serenading me on the ukulele...and I feel really happy :)

Ok, on to pictures:

Unexpected reaction to the Firelily cocktail

But she got over it real fast

  1. Love the post! You and your doings are so fun and funny. I don't know what to say about some of the food pics. This time I'll just skip it, except to say I would love the scallops. The serenade and lobster hug? Sweetness!

    "Hair did" and "New fall/winter hat" are my faves this go-round!

  2. The picture of you in your new hat=adorable. You are so beautiful!

    P.S. I am jealous that you can wear hats, scarves... jeans. Ha. It is 91 here in Louisiana... dumb.

    But we can grow things 12 months out of the year!

    1. Well I've only just been able to start wearing hats with this new haircut...otherwise I look ridiculous! 91 sounds miserable! Ay yi yi.....
