Lands End


My November Product of the Month is this great bag my cousin Allison sent me right after Kate was born. It is HUGE & has a zipper top & holds SO much stuff! I think I could fit Kate in one. Alli sent me another one for Claire & it came in the mail on Friday, just in time for our trip to Pebble Beach (that will be a whole new post, I am WAY too tired to blog about it now....)
The bag is from Lands' End and it makes a great new baby gift, birthday or Christmas present! The bags are made of thick canvas and are super sturdy. They come in tons of colors & you can get them personalized (which I love). It has pockets all along the inside. I was able to pack all their clothes, diapers & toys and it all zipped in nicely with room to spare! Mine are the X-Large size.

Thanks Alli for such an awesome & practical gift!

Retro Sisters

Remember my post the earlier this week called Retro Babies?

Come to find out, my mom actually had pictures of my sisters in the same outfit!

My younger sister Becks found a picture of her in it earlier this week after I posted on my blog & then I had my mom look to see if she had a picture of Elyse in it and she did! It's a miracle! Way to go mom!

Retro Babies

My mom (who doesn't save ANYTHING) actually saved one of my baby outfits & she gave it to me after I had Kate. It is a Carter's sleeper from the 1970's. I am quite surprised how it has held up for almost 30 years.

10 on 10 :: November 2008

Here is my 10 on 10 for November. 10 random pictures on the 10th day of the month!

Here is my 10 on 10 for November. 1o random pictures on the 10th day of the month!

This is what I woke up to today. A very sad Kate crying for her "Dada". Kevin had a work thing in Napa today & left the house before 7 am. Kate was obviously sad not to see her Daddy when she woke up and cried "I want Dada" for 5 minutes. It was sad, but cute.


This is what I needed to deal with a crying toddler. Coffee...heaven on earth.

Kate wanted to go potty. She didnt go potty, but had fun sitting on it & reading for about 10 minutes.



Kate on our way to the mall..I took the girls Christmas shopping today!

Kate when we got home from the mall...shopping is hard work!
Having fun with Claire when Kate was napping:
I cleaned out my closet & organized it while Kate & Claire were napping. My clothes are organized by color & by season. I am a dork :)


Kate carrying up the mail from the mailbox.
Filling up with gas today..SO excited to see gas for cheap! Who knew I could be so happy to fill up the Tahoe for under $70??

Kev and I watched our beloved 49ers on Monday night football tonight. They lost (not surprised) to the Arizona Cardinals. It was a great game. 

Kevin looks a lot like Arizona quaterback Kurt Warner, don't you think? It is his celebrity look alike!

Claire's Birth Announcement


Here is Claire's Birth Announcement that I made! I took all the pictures & then made the announcement in Photoshop. I made 6 different announcements for Claire & then had our families vote on them. This was the winner.

Here are the runner-ups:






My new hobby is designing birth announcements & invitations! I started designing invitations earlier this year for fun after I made Kate's 1st Birthday Party invite:

Then I had a couple of friends ask me to design baby shower invitations, so I did some of those in the spring. Then, I moved on to birth announcements this summer! I had 6 friends ask me to design birth announcements this summer. It was SO much fun! Now I am working on our Christmas Card! If you know of anyone who needs an invitation, birth announcement or card, let me know!
