November in Pictures

Man, I have been sucking it up with this blogging business. Truth be told work has been kicking my tail and life in general has just been super busy. I'll try to get back on the wagon in December! My apologies, lovelies. Until then, here was my November in pictures!

Partner's Card damage. If you live in Dallas and don't know about the Partner's Card, let me direct you here. It's a great way to help out a great cause AND save 20% at tons of great stores at the same time. This was the first year I got one and I paid for it with flying colors. 

 Road trip south = a stop to get the best kolaches ever. I don't know that I've ever driven down 35 South (or North for that matter) without stopping at the Czech Stop. Mmm... simply delicious.

 We went to Austin for the Tech vs. UT game and stayed with our college friend Michele. The game was a beating, but the three of us still managed to have a blast!

Love, love, love Austin.

 We also were able to meet up with one of my brother's best friends, Will. It was good to see him and hang our for a bit. Such a great and funny guy!

Meesh eating her we're-losing-so-bad-let's-drown-our-sorrows jello shot with a fork. 

 Beautiful Austin sunset.

 Mark and I went to a meet and greet deal with Daughtry. I wasn't a huge fan before, but he's actually really good! I didn't realize he sang some of the songs he played. 

Mark, Daughtry, me, and his guitar player.

 Lunch with the Godbaby. :) 

Loved this one. :)

I loved my Kim Kardashian curls from Halloween, but wanted a simpler way to do it since I have so much hair. Solution: I bought some old fashioned rollers! This was my first time putting them in and I had to laugh because it looked like a four year old did it. Hopefully I'll get a bit better with practice! It's harder than it looks!

Sweet little Cameron playing in my shoes. (the best cheap flats ever!)

 This was our Thanksgiving damage: nine bottles. I won't share the number of wine drinkers with you, but let's just say the bottles outnumbered the people...

 We had a post-Turkey Day dinner at Zeppole at The Gaylord. (SO GOOD!) We stopped by Old Hickory to make Christmas day reservations and I had to take a picture of their wine bottle Christmas tree- it definitely put our Thanksgiving damage in perspective.

30x30 Progress! We started finishing the back of my sorority t-shirt quilt and I'm proud to say, I sewed the entire strip that will go down the back. It's a little crooked, but I did it!

Celebrating my grandpa's 83rd birthday on the last day of November!

We were at the Gaylord this weekend and saw the wine bottle tree. It's amazing...and a good future thanksgiving damage goal to work towered ;-) love the FGM pictures!! Oh, I also can't wait to see your finished quilt.
