So I've gotten behind on my blogging again. At least I've been keeping up with the weekly bump updates! So instead of doing a ton of smaller posts I'm just going to dump them all into one post.
I know everybody's minds have switched off of Thanksgiving and moved on to Christmas, but I just wanted to do a tiny recap so that I can remember what we did this year. This year my sister-in-law, Emily, and her husband, Sean, wanted to host Thanksgiving dinner at their place in Wichita, KS. Sean has worked in the food industry forever (it also runs in his family) and Emily was raised by a pretty amazing cook so we knew dinner was going to be delicious! Since we were coming from Oklahoma we didn't really bring anything besides some homemade pumpkin chex mix I made and of course we had to bring soda.

Proud mama and her baby girl. Don't you just love Grace's outfit?!

It was so good to see them. Gracie is such a sweet, sweet baby. I think it had to have been a couple of years since we've seen these guys!! We can not let it go that long again!
So after Thanksgiving in Wichita, Sally & Evan visiting for the weekend and seeing our friends Katie & Jon, I had to get ready to leave for California on Monday! Whew!! I was there for 4 days on a business trip and managed to sneak in some fun while I was there. I flew into LA (Burbank) stayed one night there and then stayed the rest of the days in Avila Beach. If you follow me on Instragram you've probably already seen a few pics from there.
I wanted to show you the room I stayed in at Avila Beach. It was like my own little apartment! Here is the front room when you walk in the door.
Nice sized bathroom.
And then my bedroom in the back that over looked the pool and ocean!
After a couple of days in meetings we were able to check out a few wineries in the area.
Of course I couldn't partake in the tasting but I did enjoy the sights even though it was a bit wet. Luckily all the rain that California has been seeing all but stayed away besides a little drizzle.
California is so gorgeous!
That about wraps up the last few weeks. Once I got back from California I was on to planning my friend's baby shower for that Saturday. Details from that to come shortly!
