YHL "meet" and greet.

YHL was in Dallas this weekend. Here's Lauren and my very normal, hide-behind-a-huge-pole-to-conceal-your-identity-poke-your-head-out-slightly attempt at getting their picture. It's very obvious that John is staring right us here, with a "I see two very creepy girls giggling and snapping pictures of us" kinda chuckle on his face. Sorry 'bout that.
The line was out the door and around the parking lot, and ain't no body got time for that.... so this was as good as it got.  Then we ran into a friend, Helen, and she boldly just ran up in front of them to snap this for us! No line waiting, and no more border line stalker photos, it's a win if you ask me!

Also, look at this. My christmas angel.

yea, this happened..

The Christmas tree is up, the garland is on the door and mantel, and the table is set... And I don't even feel bad about it!
I was feeling a bit more neutral this year. Golds, whites, and browns on the tree.
My DIY reclaimed wood art got a makeover. That's a moose, and I love him.
 The "tree-topper"
The plan was to DIY this but when I got home and forgot the DIY supplies, the decision to put these little guys up there just felt right. The squirrel obsession started with my adorably strange husband, but now, when I see them, I love them too. weird how this happens.

I'm just excited to come back from Houston this weekend to an already complete Christmas wonderland!!!

Dallas Arboretum

This weekend Blake and I hosted the infamous Kelly sisters (Blake's mom and 2 sisters) at our house. We grabbed Eno's for dinner,  Dude Sweet chocolate for dessert and ended the night right with a little round of Bezzerwizzer. We spent Saturday morning at the Dallas Arboretum. This time of year at the arboretum may be my favorite. This weekend was so fun! We miss having family around!


 the white was my favorite. 


 Blake's favorite.

 Blake finds a friend.


I have to say, it was a perfect little fall weekend. Welcome November, you're the best.
