It's Already November?!

Wow, time just seems to fly by...whether you're having fun or not! Luckily, I had a wonderful weekend in San Diego! The boyfriend and I are so lucky that his dad and grandparents live in Carlsbad. It's beautiful down there! YoYo was quite excited to be leash-less and able to wander the backyard freely.

On Friday night, we made it into town in time to eat at Pizza Port, which came highly recommended by my foodie co-worker. The pizza and beer were both so delicious and the atmosphere was fun too! It was a nice way to wind down after a day of work and a couple of hours on the freeway!!


On Saturday, we all went to Fashion Valley and I was so happy to finally see the Lilly store there. It was heaven and I could have spent all day there! The Originals Collection is just delightful and I tried on several pieces. When I saw the dresses online, I was sure that this Classic White Not So Crabby dress was my favorite, but my mind was instantly changed when I put on the "Aquamarine in the Slim" pattern in the Worth Shift Lace design. The picture online does not do this dress or pattern justice. I had to have it! So it came home with me in the prettiest green and pink bag that I kept hugging and petting while walking around the rest of the mall. I am a huge dork, but I don't care! I will be certain to post pictures of the dress soon because I want you all to see how beautiful it really is.

Outside the Lilly store with the boyfriend!


YoYo is trying to convince Dad to stay one more day...


On a completely different note, last Thursday Kate and I met for dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. It's always fun to meet with her so we had a good time gabbing and eating yummy food. She brought me the cutest cupcake notepad and recipe cards. I'll have to remember to take a picture to show you all.


I hope you all had a great weekend and a good start to the new month! Can you believe it's already almost time for Thanksgiving?! Unbelievable!

Sounds like a good time :) I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that pets my bags haha. I have named a few of my purses that I love dearly before even getting home. That probably makes me sound strange, but they are too fabulous not to be appreciated that much.

Good lord, you really wouldn't be able to tell from the weather in SoCal that it's November...someone should send LA a memo or something.

Your puppy is adorable!

Kate said...

Sounds like the perfect weekend getaway!

Kate said...

PS-My hair looks awful in that photo. I hope people don't think I am balding!
