San Francisco

Yesterday, I went out to San Francisco with one of my best girl friends to do a little last minute Christmas shopping. We showed up super prepared for some bad weather but although it was cloudy the weather was pretty perfect! Minus the 80 degree insides of every store that we sweat our butts off in. I wasn't too successful on the gift buying front, but I did get a few cute things for myself haha. While out there I met up with one of my all time favorite friends miss stephanie! In the end it was successful trip with catching up, gossip, shopping, and delicious mexican food.



macys went a little crazy with the deco!

The Little Things

So I've been in finals mode for the past 2 weeks, and have gotten very very little sleep. I've been leaving the house around 8 am and coming home from the library around 2,3, and even 5 am. Being gone all day long makes the cats super excited when I finally do get home, causing them to gallop back and forth across the house, wrestle, and get as close as possible to me (which usually means ON me).

All I want to do when I get home is plop straight in to bed, but unfortunately for me, the cats know when "bed time" is (if I turn off the lights in the living room and kitchen they run straight to the bedroom and hide under the bed). See usually the cats are NOT allowed to sleep with me, there have been too many nights where I was kept up because they were running around the bedroom, jumping on me, pawing at me, running into things etc. - mind you I do live in a 100 year old house on the top level, so two cats jumping off of dressers and running into things is VERY loud; for both me and my downstairs neighbor. Some nights bed time isn't a problem and I can tell that they will sleep soundly in bed with me, some nights though I can tell that they are going to be uncontrollable.

Every night this week we've had to deal with the latter situation. The past three nights I've been woken up continuously by getting pounced on in my sleep and to the sound of something falling off my night stand due to a 8 pound cat sliding across the room into it. Monday night I was determined to get them out of my room while they were hiding under bed, fully aware that it was time for mimis. The best I could manage was getting them into the bathroom (my house is weird and the bathroom is in between the kitchen and my room) whose door is "loose" so the cats can bang on it, and let me tell you they banged on it ALL night.

Well, last night I got home from the library at 5 am, with my alarm set for 9:30, and I was oh so worried that the cats were gonna let me have it again. Instead though, I slept perfectly all night and woke up to two VERY cuddly cats. This is probably what makes me happiest :)

The Perfect Gift

So I just stumbled across this amazing site and had to share. They make gorgeous custom silhouette charms. Considering all the mamas I know I thought this would be a great find for a lot of you! Although this will not be arriving in time for Christmas for me, I think my mom mom will love it so much that having to wait for her gift will be worth it ;)

Around the house...

a few pictures from around the house today...

i love olive's little round belly! ;)

Fall Friday

I left my house for the library a bit ago and it was honestly kind of magical. There were trains of leaves following all the cars, and leaves were raining from the tops of the trees. It felt like it was snowing orange and yellow amazingness.

This is what happens when you live in California, summer lasts until October, and then in late November early December Fall creeps in. I'm going to embrace it and try not wish that I was having a white Christmas ;) So here's to fall and my days fall fashion inspiration:

and little tid bit of my own grey/yellow layering
