I always thought that I would prefer to be Belle from Beauty and the Beast, but I had a revelation tonight. Jasmine from Aladdin would be my pick. She's already a princess, doesn't have to wear huge dresses and mostly...she has a pet tiger! DUH. Oh, and she gets a man who wears MC Hammer Pants. Hott.

Kyra and I went to Petaluma for a weekend so that we could help Susannah and Kevin move into their new house!
Apparently I didn't take any pictures of the new house...

SO...I forced Sherstin to come out and visit me for a weekend. It was very short, but well worth it. She flew in Friday night and flew out Sunday evening. We actually didn't really do anything and didn't even really take pictures at all! Mostly because we literally just hung out, talked and relaxed! It was lovely! We spent half of our time in Morgan Hill and the other half in Petaluma so that Shestin could see where I am now and where I grew up.
We even made it out to my Elementary school and I showed her where I am immortalized on the wall of the school :)
I had a great time and look forward to seeing her next month when she becomes Mrs. Sherstin Sutherland!

I grew up with a Christmas Tree farm up the road from me. So, when I was home for Thanksgiving and Jennifer said we should take a walk up there, I was all for it! It was really pretty and they even had some animals out. You can't really tell, but that is like the goliath of all goats...we were pretty scared. The pig was huge too...I've never seen one that big in person, but I'm sure there are much larger! Oh, and Asia was there for a day and then came back with me because Nikki is going to be there for most of December, so we thought it best that she hang out in Morgan Hill a bit longer.

I had the best Halloween costume this year! I dressed up as Lisa! It was pretty entertaining because I don't think she thought I would actually do it, but I showed up at the Smiths that night. Fully decked out. Clothes, makeup, perfume, bra, everything. It was even weirding Austin out that he kept on thinking I was his mom. Oh and it was really comfortable too!

So, I was able to help out with a local measure to get passed called Measure G. It was a bond to get money for the schools and we won! It was a lot of hard work, but it paid off! I mostly helped out putting together the phone bank. I volunteered poor Lisa for just about anything that came up...she was a good sport! At any rate, we are all much happier with that being over with!

Ok, so I have MIA, but life just got a little less crazy, so I thought that I would blog a little bit.
Jennifer texted me one Friday and told Lisa and I to come meet her and Chris down in Carmel for the day. It is about an hour long drive for us and we jumped at the opportunity.
It was a beautiful day and we walked down to the beach, did some shopping, but mostly we sat at a pub and ate and chatted. It was fun to just hang out, yay for being spontaneous!
Oh, and I bought a purse...Lisa and Jenn informed me that I needed this one, especially since it was such a great deal! My favorite response was from Sherstin:
