Vintage Glassware

During my Thanksgiving adventure at the Farm I was given the chance to pick out some crystal that was my Great Grandmothers. I choose delicate champagne classes that have hollow stems and small high ball glasses (I think that is what they are called). So looking forward to using them during the holiday season!

Thankful For Cheese Grits!

Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving this year - I was fortunate to have two. One at my in-laws house in St. Charles and the other one was at the family farm.

I got to have my sister and brother-in-law at both Thanksgivings

My sister-in-law worked hard at the cranberry sauce. She will make such a great wife someday...

Baby Aiden dressed up for the occasion by sporting the pirate shoes we got him

Ann played "beautiful" music on the piano

and James terrorized the kitty cats....oh yes, a very successful Thanksgiving #1.
On to #2.

The amazing old red barn at the farm

My Aunt Kay is an amazing cook and now my clothes are feeling a bit tighter because of it.

One of the many reasons I love the farm sooo much.

The night ended with a pretty intense 4 hour poker game in the den, which is furnished with Frank Lloyd Wright furniture.

Could I Suck More?

Wow, it has really been a month since I last posted. James got a new car (350Z), I started a new job, put James motorcycle into storage, tore up carpet, went to Hermann, MO and New Orleans, LA. Hell, we even fit a football game into the mix.

Word to the wise....don't go to Hermann, MO during Oktoberfest....crowds were so annoying that they totally killed my buzz.

See, long lines.

James doesn't like lines either.

Although, we did cheer up long enough to smile for a photo.


Oh yeah, nothin' like tailgating

and seeing massive ass crack and...

my Dad and close family friend getting drunk...

and sobering up for a photo with Dad.

New Orleans!!!
I haven't been since I was little, so it was a blast going back. I only lost $0.50 when we gambled! I'm soooo amazing...not really, BUT what was amazing was flying into Lakefront Airport. Totally on the water.

Double romantic flowers, chocolate and wine waiting for us in our hotel room when we landed. James is such a good man.

Oh, and we had a kid.........................

Geez, calm down. It's my nephew.
