Peach Cobbler + Gratitude


Happy Thanksgiving, Plummies! My family does not get into town until this weekend, so Karl, Benny and myself are going to have dinner with some friends up in Northern San Diego. Dinner will be potluck style and I have opted to make a delicious peach cobbler which I stumbled upon while watching Laura Vitale's Youtube channel (see video below). I made it last night, and I must say, I am rather impressed with how easy it was. However, the next time I attempt this recipe I would definitely add a bit more sugar and use fresh rather than canned peaches. 

As many of you know, this year has been pretty significant for me, and my life has changed quite a bit, all of which I am so grateful for. In the spirit of Thanksgiving...

I am grateful for:

-Getting engaged to my best friend, biggest cheerleader, and role model.
-Gaining new friendships and cherishing old ones. 
-Obtaining my Master's Degree
-Being able to travel to Spain 
-Working in an industry that I allows me to connect with so many courageous individuals. 
-My family's love and support

What are you most grateful for?

Top of this Tuesday to you! This morning I woke to the bright sun gleaming through my window, yet I threw off my covers and was met with a brisk chill. I actually had to put on my thick bathrobe to feel warm enough to wander into the kitchen to make breakfast. That San Diego sunshine sure is tricky.

It seems as though Fall came overnight. One weekend we are enjoying 80 degree weather at the beach, and the next we are grabbing bathrobes in an effort to keep warm.

Chilly air gets me pumped for the holiday season. Thanksgiving is a mere 10 days away; Meaning the biggest shopping day of the year is only 11 days away. So, what do I do to prepare? Make a list, of course! Cheers to thrifty shopping!

Wedding Series: Engagement Ring Holder

Engagement Ring Holders

It's the little things in life that make me happy. Since Karl and I got engaged this past June (Whoa, it's already been almost 6 months!), I've kinda been a tad preoccupied with wedding stuff. I must say, I am so glad Pinterest is around, because I can't even imagine planning a wedding without it. How did you girls get inspiration prior to Pinterest? Well, I suppose there were still bridal magazines, blogs, and bridal expos...

Moving on...I do not sleep with my ring on because the prongs seem to scratch my face when I am not too careful. So, I've been meaning to get a ring holder or ring dish to set on my night stand. I am particularly in love with the little doggie and the deer.

These would be great gift ideas for your newly engaged girlfriends, don't ya think?

Have a blessed Tuesday and don't forget to go out there and cast your vote, People! Xo
