The Top 10

Sunday, October 11, 2009

What a week. Here it goes...

10. Next month, I am heading to Tennessee, Illinois {Chicago!!} and Indiana! I will meet quite a few bloggers on my trip {you can see who in the post below} and am looking forward to 10 days of travel. It's going to be fun!

I am really excited {and terrified!}. I am doing this. I know it's good for me. But I have never flown alone, and have only been on a plane once since I was 15. I know that's irrational to think that the plane will crash, but we weren't meant to fly. We don't have wings. So thinking of a giant metal thing flying me through the air seems pretty irrational to me. I will be asking for flying tips soon {and may as the doctor for some anti anxiety pills}.

Emmy reminded me of the bean. Can't wait to put my camera to use. I'm going to look like such a tourist. Love it.

9. As I write this, I am uploading files to Funky Playground Designs, because my guest spot begins tomorrow! I can't tell you how excited I am about this. FPD has been one of my favorite stores for {at least} 2 years.

I have quite a few kits coming out tomorrow. Here is a sneak peek at two of them.

8. Last night, Jess and I had a nice "sister night." We went to dinner and walked around a little bit. We haven't spent time together in a while, and I realized that we should do more of that. It was fun! After dinner, we stopped by a little candy shop for a few gummies, and picked up some sugar free candy for Aunt Rose since we were dropping off some dinner for her.

7. Last Sunday when I had lunch with Angela and Kate, they each brought birthday presents for me! So sweet of them.

Kate got me a really cute purple scarf. I am all about scarves this year and was thinking that I'd like a purple one. I haven't taken any pics yet, but want to write a scarf post soon. Speaking of scarves, I am bringing back

Angela gave me this adorable pumpkin cheesecake pan for my birthday. I am SO excited to use it. I have been wanting a pumpkin pan for a few years, but talk myself out of spending the money each year. I think this would be great for Thanksgiving or Halloween. Thank you, Angela! I love it.

6. The weather in LA has been amazing. It is finally feeling like fall. It has been nice and cool, and even a little gloomy. I love it. I was able to wear these last night.

5. The new kitten has officially turned in to the sweetest little love that I've ever met. My other cats are very sweet, but this guy is all about cuddling {something my other cats do not do}. I am at my desk right now and he is snuggled up on my lap.

Look at the cuteness!

4. The Rachel Zoe finale airs tomorrow night, but I can watch it whenever I want because I have my own DVR. I love my DVR. I no longer have the pressure of trying to watch Dexter, Bros. & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, and Californication. I can break it up a little bit. And I don't have to worry about missing all my fave shows. Love it.

3. I went out with my mom last week and got a pair of wide leg trouser jeans {on sale!}. Let's hope I can pull them off.

2. In a few hours, I will be heading to a {vintage inspired} Halloween shop with my sis.

1. Along with my big trip next month, I also planned a little something for December. Looks like I'll have to conquer that whole "fear of flying" thing, because I booked a trip to San Antonio to visit Jill!! I am so excited {and of course, I'm a little nervous}. Jill has lots of fun things planned, and even wrote an official itinerary with some very entertaining commentary. I need a copy so I can share it. She even has a surprise Christmas craft ready for us!

I do know that we are making throw pillows with her mom, and doing lots of fun Christmas inspired things. I am especially excited because SA is one of HGTV's top 10 Christmas towns!!


  1. I have the same thoughts about flying as you do! I'm also loving the Christmas sneak peak!

  2. Sounds like a fun couple months you've got planned.

  3. Yay! I can't wait for you to visit SAT.

    Okay~ you're right we don't have wings but we don't have wheels either. So, were humans meant to drive or ride in cars at 70 miles per hour? :) You'll do great on your flights!!! Since you love the roller coaster at CA Adventure and could stand in the "single" line all day to ride it over and over, you can do this!

  4. Oh my goodness. You have so much going on. So much traveling. I used to be really scared about flying as well, but the more you do it the better it gets. You are going to have so much fun!!

  5. if you need to be pointed in the right direction, do not hesitate to say hey!
    Leticia in Chicago!

  6. Yes, I think you will love the bean. I grew up in Chicago but saw it for the first time when I went back home last summer, it is great.
    Love that pumpkin cheesecake pan, that will be fun.
    And I agree, am so loving the weather!

  7. Sounds like it will be a fun trip! By the way, Buddy's twin has a recent pic up on my blog. Please check it out!

  8. You are going to have so much fun with all your traveling! I'm jealous! That is awesome that Milo is so cuddly...I LOVE having a cuddly pet!

  9. I may copy your Top 10 idea and do it like once a month. I love it and I think it would help me to be more positive!

  10. You have so many fun trips coming up! You’re camera is going to be getting a lot of use. I was a little freaked out the first time that I flew alone too. You will be fine :)

    That is great that you got to have a nice dinner with your sister. I think it’s awesome that you’re close. I love what Kate and Angela got for you. I’m also all about the scarves and the pumpkin pan is too cute! You also have the exact Uggs that I want. They’re definitely making the Xmas list this year.

    Milo is adorable and I love when cats are affectionate. You don’t find that too often.

    I hope you had fun at the Halloween shop! This is such a fun time of the year.

    That is so great that you’re going to see Jill too. I would love to meet all of you ladies someday. San Antonio sounds like a lot of fun!
