Dreary & Sunlit Days

November in Arizona is strange time - some days will be sunny, warm, and not so fall like, and other days will be grey, chilly, and feel like the epitomy of fall (especially when you take a walk through an old neighborhood that still has trees that change with the seaons). The past few days we've gone back and forth - sunny and dreary, dreary and sunny (and today with full on thunderstorms and rain) - but I'm not complaining. Any excuse to kept bundled up in sweaters and scarves is good in my book!

This past grey and cold Tuesday showed us the birth of a dear friends' beautiful baby girl, and the magic that lies within a full moon. Scott also put up our Christmas lights a little early (and maybe a mini gold tree!), and we spent some time hashing out more wedding details. We've been so busy that I had almost completely forgot that next week is Thanksgiving until a colleague reminded me of our holiday schedule (black friday off! yes!). This month has truly gone by too fast!
Next Friday and Saturday, November 29th and 30th, Scott, aka fiance, aka Citizen Home Decor, will be selling his hanmade wooden plaques, coasters, and ornaments at the Phoenix Flea - a community event created to showcase local artists/entrepreneurs, and to raise support for Phoenix area nonprofits and charities. We'll be selling from 10am to 6pm both days, so please stop by, say hello, and pick up a goodie or two for you and your loved ones!

The weekend is only hours away and I'm daydreaming about going to see Catching Fire (hopefully tonight!). Today is also my pup Piper's first birthday! I can't believe she's already one!

What are you up to this weekend?
Are you feeling the dreary, rainy day vibes today too?

  1. I can't believe you are wearing a dress in November! I live in Virginia and it barely gets in the 40s. Enjoy :)

  2. This whole look is so chic!

    The weather here in LA is very similar, but the cold comes so suddenly that I'm caught off guard. Can it just stay 70 degrees please?

  3. Happy Birthday to Piper! Our pup just turned one a couple of weeks ago and we may or may not have (okay, MAY) had a birthday party for him complete with a menu of corn dogs, hot dogs, "Dogfood Casserole" (my boyfriend's specialty), Puppy Chow (Chex Mix), Greyhounds & Salty Dogs for cocktails, and Dogfish Head beer. It was awesome.
