Costume anticipation

I love holidays, all of them, I don't discriminate.
The thing I love about Halloween though,
dressing up of course, candy comes in a close 2nd.

I don't see this changing anytime soon.

I will probably be one of those mom's that the kids go to my door to trick-or-treat
and I'll be all decked out in my costume...
and yes I'll make the hubby do it with me{we'll be the crazies of the neighborhood}.

It's just so fun to be something other than yourself for an evening!

This year I've got something fun up my sleeve, can't wait to wear it.

Some girlfriends and myself are all on the same theme...grand times ahead.

Pics to come soon!

{From these pics it looks like I'm miserable in my costumes...
but I was just playing the role, garsh I'm a good actor.}

The city that always makes me smile.

San Francisco is always the city that I feel most alive in...
and I've been to many a city in my little life.

I think it's that big red bridge{the gg}, the ocean breeze,
those hilly streets, the fog, trolley's,
the quaintness felt even though it's a bustling city.

Those are just some of the reasons I love it there.

San Fran you just never get old.
I'm thinking this little love affair we have is here to stay!

Random thoughts for a Wednesday.

Thursday is my favorite day of the week...yes yes I know it's Wednesday today.

But Wednesday's
are my second favorite day of the week.
It means the weekend is almost here and I live for my precious weekends.

Luckily this weekend I'm heading out of town to my all time favorite city-- San Fran--
for some r&r.
I plan on taking loads of pictures, breathing in that salty ocean air and spending time with family.

On another note.

Have you heard Coldplay's new song Paradise??
Well if not listen
here it's amazing. They're new album comes out on Monday.
I'm counting down the days to buy it, they're one of my favorite bands.
One day I will see them in day!

And just one more note.

I finally saw saw Mr. Flower's Mormon ad
It's good to see Latter Day Saints proudly saying who they are.

Those are all the notes I have in my head for now.

Witchy Woman

Saturday night we had quite the ladies night out
at the Gardner Village Witch's Night Out.

If you're in the area and have never been before
you should put in on the agenda for next year.

How can hundred's of women dressed up as witch's not be amazing right?
{ps. I do not wear glasses...these are fakies. I was channeling the smart witch within me.}

A ride to the moon.

One of my absolute favorite things to do once that autumn chill arrives
is the full moon lift ride at Sundance ski resort.

You bundle up, get some hot cider and chat away on the lift
all the while you have that big beautiful moon shining down on you.

As many times as I've been before, it still doesn't get old...see here.

Sheer perfection.

Until next June

{photo taken at the beautiful Temple Square}
Goodbye summer until hopefully June or sooner,
but knowing Utah weather it won't be
until about July till I really feel like you've arrived.

It was a great summer with evening walks, the sound of crickets,
barbecues, tennis, outdoor concerts, the smell of bonfires & smore's,
camping, swimming, corn on the cob & shaved ice to name a few faves.

So till next year dearest summer, I'll be anxiously waiting!
