I work this Thanksgiving, 12 hours, 7am to 7pm. So I decided to make a little Thanksgiving for my little family yesterday. Notice that I don't own a gravy boat, and yes, I used Rachael Ray's "Muffin' Stuffins" idea. Or is it Stuffin Muffins? Not sure, but I like it because I can portion my food a little better. So much for eating less carbs and sugar...

I am recording Ellen today for my sister who is in LOVE with Twilight's Edward. I have NOT read the books, but she has read them all in the past 3 weeks. When she explains to me some of the plots, I laugh because she explains them as if they are so real. And then she realizes how funny she sounds talking about vampire romance...

I will read them eventually. I have heard from many that they are awesome-do not think I don't like Edward. :)


Not much going on around here. Just work, work, and work. Whiskey started doggy day-care/obedience this week. I think Matt was sad to have to drop him off in an unfamiliar place, but he did well with it. Whiskey has his own kennel there and seems to be doing well with his training. I felt like we were taking our child to school for the first time... :) I know, I am pathetic.

Willows Lodge

Matt and I finally got away for the weekend!! We had what we called a "wine-cation"...we went to Willows Lodge in Woodinville and it was wonderful! On Saturday, we ate lunch at the Redhook Brewery and walked a bunch on the Burke-Gilman trail. We also took some time to walk on over to Chateau Ste Michelle to buy a few bottles of wine. Then for dinner, we went to the Purple Cafe and Wine Bar-delicious! On Sunday, we ate at the Barking Frog for breakfast, then went for another long walk. After we checked out, we decided to go to the "Taste of Red" at the Columbia Winery-the wine was delicious! And yes, we brought Whiskey-he is our baby :)

I know this is fuzzy, but I love W's eyes!

Beautiful sunset!

It was a great weekend get-away! Matt did a wonderful job of making it special!

Halloween 2008

I only got one semi-ok pic of us this year for Halloween... can you guess who we are? (I am standing very awkwardly, I know-and this is the only GOOD pic!)
