Sheesh! Last week was so cold! I feel like I lived in cozy scarves, flannel and coats each and every day! I know this doesn't seem like much, but it rained for almost 4 days! 

I had been fighting off a sore throat and bad sinus headache off and on all week! Nothing like a little Refresh tea and cough drops for dinner! 

The cutest dang dog butt I ever woke up to! He loves to come get in our bed in the morning and doze off between us for another hour or so. But he will never put his face by our face, just the butt! So funny!

Got to spend a Friday afternoon having lunch at Gypsy Den Cafe with my best friend, Rachel. I love being able to go out and do things before I head off to work!

We took a family outing on Friday night to Balboa Island to check out the Christmas lights on the houses before it gets too hectic closer to Christmas! This little guy LOVED it and he was so well behaved! 

And last weekend I headed over to Long Beach for a little Jewelry party, the Gem Jam, that some girls from my work were hosting! There was so much good vintage and handmade jewelry to choose from!

"Sparkle Saturday" at work means super dressing up! This was my look for the previous weekend. This was the first time I wore this dress and the zipper wouldn't go up! I actually wore it unzipped for the entire day! Such a bummer because it is such a pretty dress!

My find from the Gem Jam, this vintage Avon necklace! I have already worn it a few times this week and get so many compliments on it! 

And Erin was my super cute date for the evening!
