These are my adopted niece and nephew Ella and Dylan, and I love Dylans face in this, it makes me crack up everytime I see it, so classic, I just had to post it. This is me and ella sporting our piggy tails that we are so proud of, aren't we so cute.
So now really getting into December up at the Tuacahn theater they have a nativity and santa and lights, so me and some friends went on up to see. Brittany, lindsey and I missed the nativity, but got to sit on santa's lap that made the whole trip well worth the drive.
Lindsey and I in front of the lit up wagon
Brittany and I sportin' our stuff!
And Santa's lap, no worries, we asked him for world peace!
Brittany and I made a new friend this day! (PS, brittany please forgive me for my delay in getting these pics up especially since I pressured you to get them to me so speedily, I still love you)!
Exhibit one(and the only one as a matter of fact), the beanie that I crochetted myself, yes my friends, I did that and you could not even imagine how proud of myself I was to do it. My friend Hailie at work showed me, and I went crazy. It was so much fun so now I can call myself domestic.
Next on the list are my cute friends. We had a friends party at a hotel, which I was so tired for, but it was so good to see my cute little friends who I hardly ever get to see.
Sarah and I taking our own picture in the hotel lobby. Us in front of the fireplace in the lobby. It was snowing out of control up in Salt Lake this night it was crazy!
So now, on to christmas! I drove home from the Friday before christmas and spent a bunch of time with my family which was awesome. Christmas eve was fun, we played games, laughed a lot about appropriate and inappropriate things as my family tends to do, Jeneece with razor will be one of my great highlighted memories, feel free to ask anyone who really wants to know, but really, i'm not sure you want to. Christmas morning was great, same as the norm, front room with all the presents and the tree. I got some really good things, gift cards, clothes, jewelry box, new robe, lots of new movies, overall is was great to be with the family!
Me and garrin (I mean lets be honest, this blog is partially dedicated to me showing off my cute nieces and nephews)!
When you are hungry, your hungry! Isn't he just so adorable!!!!
The sea lions down at fishermans wharf, they were super cute!
Me at alcatraz looking at the city, isn't it so beautiful!
I got to ride the cable cars around, which actually was a long wait to get on, but it was super fun to ride. We went to cheesecake factory that sits on like the 13th floor of Macey's department store in the middle of downtown San Fran. The wait was forever, but the food was delicious and the view was amazing. Anyone who goes there get the avocado egg rolls, they are to die for!!!
For dessert we went to good old Ghiradelli Square, yummy yummy, I ate good!
Down on fishermans wharf I got to open up my own pearls right out of the oysters and make my own jewelry, I made a beautiful necklace that I don't have a picture of but will try to post one cause it's pretty.
The views of the bay were so incredible!
This is just a quick snap of downtown monterey, it's such a fun, cute little town in the bay. we then went and ate at the monterey fish house which had amazing food, super yummy clam chowder and creme brulee....like i said, i ate good all weekend!
Next was Carmel, and the 17 mile drive around pebble beach, and it was so amazingly beautiful. I have so many pictures, but I'm only posting some, but it was beautiful, the beaches, the waves, and even the cute little city of Carmel was adorable.
Pebble Beach baby!
I was so excited when I convince Daryl to take a picture with me since he is anti camera cause I was getting tired of it being only me in all the pictures, we needed a little variety! We stopped at a bunch of the little places and ate yummy, and super expensive, sandwiches at the pebble beach market, it must be were all the pro's eat, i felt pretty cool. The houses there were so huge and unique, it was like driving through a movie set.
This is my favorite picture from off the pier because of the amazing colors from the sunset in the water, this is my current screen saver on my computer!
Me on the pier at sunset!
