Weekend Wrap-Up

Hello Everyone!
Hope you had a lovely weekend. Thought I'd share our adventures from the weekend today! This weekend we decided to forgo our usual tailgate-til-you-drop plans. I just wanted to stay home, not live out of a suitcase & Lee had to work anyways.
Friday we went on a wine tasting in Calera at Ozan Winery with my in-laws. We had a great time & tasted some great wines.
Our view from our table--so beautiful! The colors at this time of year are truly my favorite. The grapes were dormant but the mountains were breath taking.

 Hubs & I. I am wearing a dress from LOFT, Waverly Pendant necklace, the target boots(see previous post), and a few Stella & Dot bracelets.
 They gave us yummy snacks!
 Hubs is making notes on our sheet using our unofficial rating system of no, ok, check or check +.
 We also got souviener glasses! They usually run a LivingSocial for this tasting that was $10 a person and we tried like 10 wines! My arm party from top to bottom is: Vintage Twist bracelet in Gold, Maise Pearl bracelet in brown, and Rhea Bangles in gold.
 I loved this little house out in the winery.
 It got a little chilly towards the end!
 Saturday was filled with errands, & wearing PJ's while cleaning the house so no pictures of that super glamourous moment.
Sunday am I got to have brunch with my bestie at a restaurant I have wanted to try for a while, FIVE. They are owned by the same group that owns my fave restaurant ever, Chuck's Fish. FIVE did not disappoint--food was yummy, coffee was yummy, and how can you go wrong with a $2 mimosa!? The best part was the company. 
What did you do this weekend?? Any fun new things you found around town? What did you wear? Leave a comment here!

November Wishlist

Hello Everyone! Hope you are having a great week! Today I wanted to share my November wishlist. It is really my birthday/Christmas wishlist. My birthday is the week before Christmas so around this time of year I have to think of some extra things as the two events are so close together. I know some who have a December b-day and hate it but I love it---I just make the birthday celebrations last all the way into Christmas :)

1. iPhone 5 personalized case. I have asked the hubs for an iPhone 5 as I am still operating on a 3. I found these cases on etsy. I love a monogram so this is perfect for me!
2. LC by Lauren Conrad flats. I am on the forever search for a great flat that is actually comfortable. Not sure if these are but they're super cute & for under $20, as they are on sale, they are a steal! Plus at Khols they are always having a promotion.
3. Magic Bullet. I know you are old when you ask for appliances. I have gotten on a protein shake kick & this would make my life easier. They are sold tons of places but I would go to Bed, Bath & Beyond & use a 20% off coupon. I have a million of those.
4. LC by Lauren Conrad dress. I have a slight obsession with Lauren Conrad. I have been watching her since "The Hills", and just adore her style. This dress would be perfect for our NYE trip! It is also from Khols.
5. Mani/Pedi. If you have seen my nails lately, you would agree I could use this!
6. J.Crew Herringbone Vest. I saw this exact picture on Pinterest & fell in love. I went and tried it on today & it is so flattering. I was worried it would be bulky but it is very slimming. My loving grandmother purchased it after I told her about it. It's my birthday present--maybe I should wear it and then wrap it up on my birthday haha!
7. Erin Condren Planner.  My friend Meredith, from The Lovely Owl, has one of these & I am in love with it. I love the personalized cover, it's heavy duty, and its a great size. I love this whole site really.

As always there are a few other goodies I'd love, but what I'd love most is to just be with my friends & family on my Birthday & Christmas. Sadly I won't be able to be with my family but I am lucky to have friends that feel like family. We don't have plans yet but hopefully something fun!
What's on your holiday list this year? Maybe your Santa will read it!

Hello Lovelies!
Well yesterday was Trunk Show Thursday so being cute was a must! I loved this outfit. I got to wear my new top and my new-ish booties. We did a multi-vendor event which was so fun and I ended up meeting some local bloggers, Katie from Threadwise and Heather from Saving Money Living Life. Small world I have actually read Heather's blog for a while!

Ok back to the clothes....
