If someone asked you what you did in November, what would you say? It kinda becomes a blur doesn’t it? So I joined up with a couple of other bloggers to keep track of the month of November with a sentence and some photos.

It was a warm and breezy day, up to 70 degrees! SO nice to have a warm day! I made my first spaghetti squash recipe. I’ve been intimidated to try spaghetti squash in the past. I made a weight watchers recipe called Italian Turkey and Spaghetti Squash Pie. It was pretty good! My advice: add more spices for more flavor. I’m definitely looking for more recipes to try!

It was a good day – I had a busy day at work and then enjoyed my evening talking to my dad and Dray on the phone, while I lounged in front of the fireplace.

Good day at work, even got to hold a friend’s baby! Love that! Babies just fill your heart! I made chicken/vegetable soup after work…good for the soul they say!

I took Sebastian to the vet for a shot that was due. He didn’t eat much last week and I was shocked he lost 9lbs. He hasn’t weighed under 115 since he was one year old. He is now weighing in at 111.8. Otherwise he is doing good. I think he is over whatever was making him not eat last week.
Getting Sebastian in my Jeep is not as easy as “jump in”.
After getting my hair cut and colored, I drove all over Flagstaff Mountain. Beautiful day to explore!
November 5, 2017
Hung out at the house organizing my closet and planning my outfits for the week. Along with some general cleaning and laundry. My favorite kind of weekend day is to not wear make up and to not leave the house. Time to relax along with being productive is the perfect mix.

Monday ended on a high note! I met up with a couple of HR colleagues in Boulder and we talked the night away. It was such fun catching up!
November 7, 2017
We got snow! Yes, I love it! Even if we only get an inch or two.
November 8, 2017
Today was super busy at work and I love it! After I got home, I packed for my upcoming trip to Atlanta. Excited!
November 9, 2017
Trying to get everything done at work and home before my trip. Do you do that too? Impossible!?! Thursday night Dray and I attended the first fashion show for Denver Fashion Weekend. It was very well done and so much fun to see all the local fashion enthusiasts attending. The show was very good. The venue, music and food were outstanding. The last picture (of the 4 above) was a picture of my favorite outfit from one of the attendees – not from the fashion show itself.

Flight to Atlanta. Yes, I was up at 3:30 am to catch a 6:00 am flight to Atlanta. I’m headed to Atlanta to visit my dad and attend my niece’s babies 1st birthday. Fun family time!
November 11, 2017
First birthday party day! Lots of prep and then lots of fun! Over 30 people attended and Charlee had a blast! I got to see two sisters today, Karen and Sherry at the party.
November 12, 2017
Visited another niece’s new home decor store in Tate, GA. 53 Market is just beautiful and I’m so proud of her!
Charlee took her first steps. She walked to her Great-Grandpa first and then all across the room to her mommy!

Ran errands and cleaned up my Dad’s house. It feels so good to help him out and he appreciates the help so much. Now he can relax for a week because all of the cleaning and laundry is done! My sister Valerie came over. It was so fun to catch up. We enjoyed a wonderful Italian dinner out.
November 14, 2017
Flight back to Denver. I pretty much slept the entire flight!
November 15, 2017
Another busy day at work. After taking a few days off I had hundreds of emails to review and about the same amount of resumes to review for a couple of positions I posted. Good to be home.
November 16, 2017
After work a girls night get together. We call ourselves the Real Housewives of Vista Ridge (our subdivision). Ha!! Yes, I brought Middle Sister wine to enjoy!
November 17, 2017
Dray’s 3 boys have arrived for the Thanksgiving holidays. So nice to have the house full.
November 18, 2017
I made rice krispy treats and deviled eggs for the boys. A full house feels good. Pictured are 2 of the 3 boys, Graham and Jordan.
November 19, 2017
Finally got out an exercised! I ran/walked 4.5 miles. Walk up the hills, run down them. I need to exercise more. Exercising once a month is NOT impressive. 😦
November 20, 2017
Just another day in paradise. Go to work and then home. Nothing eventful, just a routine that I’m thankful for and appreciate daily.
November 21, 2017
Starting to think about our Thanksgiving meal. Pictures of Dray’s 3 boys.
November 22, 2017
OK. Thanksgiving is tomorrow! Grocery shopping is required! Made shepard’s pie and brownies for the family.z
November 23, 2017
Thanksgiving. I ran/walked 4.5 miles this morning! Dray made the turkey in an infrared cooker, a greaseless fried turkey, injected with juicy yummy flavors. It is seriously the best!! I made the sides. The dinner was fabulous! We enjoyed a little wine with dinner!
November 24, 2017
I ran/walked 4.5 miles again this morning! Today I timed myself, 55 minutes. Not bad for running and walking!
November 25, 2017
Dray’s boys flew back to Georgia. I ran/walked 4.5 miles again this morning. Spent the beautiful, warm, sunny day around the house doing laundry and eating leftovers. Dray and I watched the documentary I am Elizabeth Smart. It was powerful story with her speaking throughout it.
November 26, 2017
I walked 3 miles to the grocery store and back. I bought 5 items and put them in my back pack and walked back home. Another beautiful, warm, sunny day around the house getting lots of cleaning and laundry done. I made banana bread. Yum! Dray and I watched the movie Aloha with Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper. It was really good.

Love is in the air. It’s our 7th wedding anniversary today. Going out to celebrate at Happy Sumo restaurant at Orchard Mall. Loved seeing all the holiday lights there too.
November 28, 2017
Been really busy at work and I’m loving it. Tonight I met up with some neighborhood friends to play Mahjong. I lost 4 out of 4. 😦 Dray made vegetable soup with turkey leftovers and it was delicious!
November 29, 2017
Beautiful morning sunrise! Another busy day at work – getting ready to hire 5 new employees next week! Enjoyed a quiet evening at home and eating yummy turkey/vegetable soup.
