Holy moly, November just FLEW by, didn’t it? Since it was kind of a whirlwind month I thought I’d sum it all up in photos I grabbed off my phone and share what I got up to. Let’s get into it!
Making acai bowls at home has been my new thang…even though it’s beginning to get colder in Cali and I’ll probably start craving hot breakfasts it’s been fun playing around with different topping combos.
I went to Chicago!! I bit the bullet at the last minute and bought a ticket to attend BlogHer Food. Starting to take this blogging thing seriously hehe…here I am acting all giddy and tourist-y in front of The Bean.
I LOVE big cities (I may call Santa Barbara home but I’m a San Francisco girl at heart) so I absolutely adored walking around downtown Chicago and feeling a brisk chill in the air- finally somewhere I could wear a jacket and scarf!
The BlogHer Food conference was a blast. I took in a wealth of information, ate too many free food samples and met tons of other bloggers and industry peeps. This new friend and I may or may not have had a little too much fun in the Otis Spunkmeyer photo booth…
Whilst in Chi-town I had to do some R & D at Do-Rite Donuts. Work is hard.
It’s still warm enough in the evening to host outdoor movie nights in our backyard, and we’ve been showing every episode in the Star Wars saga in anticipation of the newest release. Our friends have really been getting into it, bringing light sabers, donning Star Wars apparel (including undies!) and even making these cool Star Wars chocolates! Apparently we’ve got some super fans in the crew.
There was no shortage of autumn treats in the household, like these Vegan Maple Pumpkin Pop Tarts I’ve been making that always get devoured way too quickly.
Usually I opt not to work this holiday and instead choose to spend it with my family (don’t worry, my fam is the best and was nice enough to move our turkey day to Friday so I could still celebrate with them), so this was actually my first time cooking Thanksgiving dinner from start to finish all by myself. And not to brag or anything but I’m pretty sure I NAILED IT.
So there we have it, November in a nutshell. Follow me on Instagram to keep up with my goings on in real time!
Now December is in full swing- can you believe it? I know it can be a crazy/hectic time of year so let’s all try to remember to breathe, celebrate and stop to appreciate those special moments with our loved ones.
