My current wish list

There are always things I have my eye on but this being my favorite season, I always seem to find more. As I search the endless possibilities online for Christmas gifts for my loved ones I can't help but find things for me too. Does anybody else do that? Sydney is well (after having the croup) and Shane is almost done with his really crazy schedule so things are looking up around here and making me feel joyous. So here are a few of my current favorites.

1. Any of her fabrics. I have so many ideas in mind including a new cover for Syd's seat, some cute curtains in the kitchen, and of course a few clothes.

2. This book which I have been itching to read for a long time now. Plus, a little leisure reading with a new subscription to this and this.

3. Of course I love love love fall clothes and even though it doesn't get that cold in Southern California (is 40 even considered winter in most areas) I want want want something like this, and this, and this. Ok I will stop there. I think you get the idea.

4. Shane and I have been saving for something like this and this for our home. We are checking the clearance sales often. ;)

Of course, there are some more pressing purchase needs around here like this so we can start eating at our table again and replacing this but a girl can look, right?

Swap surprises

I have wanted to do a swap for awhile but especially after seeing this. I finally joined the I [heart] Swap and look at what I received upon coming home from San Diego on Monday. What a magnificent treat. My package included lots of goodies including chapstick (how did she know it is my lip coverage of choice), beignet mix (how did she know Shane is cajun), and my favorite items - the map file folders and an adorable notebook from here. A special thanks to Dianna (I don't have you email or blog address to send a thanks to so this will have to do for now) and of course thank you Steph for hosting. Until next time....

Chargers Football

Football has never been my preferred sports pastime however Sydney and I joined my parents for a San Diego Chargers game yesterday. My dad refused to let us go to the game without being decked out in jerseys. Sydney was able to take her first trip on the trolley on our way to the stadium. I was sure she would love it because she is constantly yelling that she sees a red train but she was a little frightened at first. She loved the game and was swinging her Chargers towel all over the place screaming "Go Chargers." We had such a great time and the only thing that could have made it better was if Shane was with us and not working. Next time he will have to join us for all the football fun. Yes, there will be another time...I am officially a Chargers fan now.

Superhero Capes

A theme in our Sunday school curriculum is heros so I made all the kids capes. Sydney was my little model once again to help determine sizing. Then all the Kindergardeners and 1st graders worked their magic with the trusty puff paints.
