Weekend Report

Friday night we had planned a big girls night out but half our group ended up being sick, so only four of us were able to make it to dinner. It ended up working out perfectly because I really couldn't afford a Saturday hangover.

We had dinner at City Tavern in Culver City, and because Dawn knew the chef we were treated like royalty. They had a coursed out menu for us and dish after dish came out and knocked our socks off. We were so full by the end of it, but it was one of the best restaurant meals I've had in a long while.


Saturday we made our hour by hour Thanksgiving day plan, all 17 grocery lists, put up the Christmas tree, watched football, made enchiladas for dinner and then retired to bed before 11.

 Our group of friends had a major baby boom in October. My sister-in-law said that he doctor has seen tons of October babies too, and she claims it's due to a very boring Superbowl.

Whatever the theory, we finally met sweet Hendrix who was the last bambino to arrive in October. He is just edible.

After brunch with Hendrix, we babysat Tucker so that Tucker's parents could catch a movie in our hood. 

Tucker was a little fussy because he is cutting teeth and literally the only thing that would soothe him was Roscoe.

It was pretty much the cutest thing ever - and Roscoe took his guard dog duties very seriously.

To say I'm excited for this week would be a gross understatement! My family starts getting in Tuesday afternoon and even though we will be doing a lot of prep work, I'm just so excited to be with them.
It's almost Halloween! Which means Thanksgiving is approaching! Which means Christmas season is almost upon us!
