We had the fun opportunity to go to Newport Beach with the Russell family all last week. They get a condo there every year and its a tradition to go down. This was my first year going with them, and it was so much fun! Everyone was there except for Ryan, Lyndsey, and Livie who we missed. We had a blast going to trick-or-treat at Disneyland, spending time at the beach and pool, and hanging out with the family. Thanks Fred and Shauna for the great trip, it was much needed!

September in a Nutshell

  • We celebrated our big one year anniversary on the 10th.. woot woot! I started the day early at 6 a.m. getting a bride ready for her special day. She made a beautiful bride and her hair turned out great! I only worked a half day and then we went up to Gateway to do some shopping, (my favorite) and finished the night off right by eating dinner at our favorite place, Ruth's Chris! They sure know how to treat you right for a special occasion.
  • My boo turned 23 on the 16th! His parents happened to get the condo in Park City that week, so we celebrated all weekend long up there. It was so fun!
  • The Italians came to visit. My Nonna, Zio Toto, and Zia Fausta. It was so great to have them here and be able to spend some time. We really don't get to see them as much as we want to, but I am grateful we see them as much as we do for how far apart we live from each other! The good news is, the next time we see them (in May) we will be THERE instead of HERE! Can't wait!!
I love the Fall and am happy it is here. Can't believe its already October...
