Where did November go?

A whole month without a post, that's probably a first.

I will tell you a little about the month and hopefully post pictures soon...
November consists of Davis' birthday every year, crazy right?  This year I threw him a surprise birthday party and it was awesome.  He was totally surprised and had no idea way everyone popped out of our closet after a minute of him talking to me like it was just us there.

We also did Napa and San Fran for Thanksgiving, what a fantastic trip!  Lots of wine and food and sleep, it was perfect ;)

Davis has been traveling a lot and I am getting ready for my last day at my current job so there's not much time to blog.

I took a kick-boxing class with the girls.  We went to see Tower Heist because it was free, we also saw Immortals which I actually enjoyed.  I still am dying to see Breaking Dawn! hint hint

We are going to Vancouver this weekend with the Guptas and I fly home in less than 2 weeks!!!

Haunted Camping

Davis decided that he wanted to be scared this Halloween and not the sit at home and watch a scary movie kind of scared, but in the middle of nowhere terrified in the woods scared so.....that's what we did.

We went to the Green River Gorge, this is a protected conservation area.  Franklin, an old ghost town was once a hopping place and the mining shaft that once kept the economy alive was the exact spot of our camping.  We hiked to the mining shaft, dropped off our gear, and went to find the metropolis of Franklin.  This is what we found...

 yes, those pictures are what's left of the town

 Mary and I set up the tent and we did a fabulous job ;)

we didn't bring cups so we used beer bottles

the mine shaft, this is where we camped...well right beside it

 Reese cup smores, yum!
 the top of the shaft was covered with a metal grate, no worries about falling in

This is probably one of the scariest things I have ever done.  I cannot explain why or how, but if you want to be scared go sleep in an old ghost town on Halloween weekend.  I think I may have slept a total of 3 hours...yesterday I took a long nap and I still need sleep.  I hope everyone's Halloween was as spooky as mine ;)  Happy Halloween!  Remind us that we never want to do this again next Halloween, please.

Marchez Vous

This past weekend was a busy one....

Friday night I did a show for the YWCA, where all proceeds went to Dress for Success.  I scored some good deals as did Carly (the outfit she is in above was scored at this show).  My phone was stolen at this event :(  What a bummer!

Saturday I did an event for JGilbert and Yeardley Smith (Lisa from the Simpson's).  It was the launch of her new shoe collection, and I can vouch that they are pretty fantastic.  I was standing in them the entire day and crazy enough I put them back on after my feet starting hurting in another pair of heels at a wedding later that evening.  That's when you know you have a comfy pair of heels!  (Pics above are from this event)

Check out the article on the event

Sunday - I took a much needed four hour nap zzzzz.....

Working on the East Coast

A couple of weeks ago I was working on the east coast and if you know me, you know I tried to see as much as I could.  So the first morning I ran around Yale campus, the highlight was seeing their men's crew working out.  We indulged in yummy Maine lobsters as much as possibly and the last day and night we went to Boston.  While in Boston....

 huge meat pies in the market
 a little history

 they have ducks....all their ducks are different colors
 we went to where Cheers was filmed (Hampshire House) and had cheese have to eat food to be seated.
 we walked around Harvard campus, this week was my tour of ivy leagues
 Harvard library
 I do have to say in my opinion Harvard looked way nicer than Yale
the city view from my hotel room, not great but that's what I got

A pirates life for me...

What an incredible weekend, I wish I could do it every weekend!!  We went for a 3 hour sail to Blake Island, where we camped out on the boat for the night before sailing home on Sunday.

I think my pictures will sum up the trip without a need for words...

 this is a salmon bake...yes, those are butterflied salmon

 wait for it
 Sushil drew obscene pictures on the mug and didn't tell me!
