Costume party! 1920's girl

Hello! Last week I went to a last minute costume party that my friend Karen's daughter decided to have that morning.  Jon and her daughter went to kindergarten for like 5 minutes together before he got transferred to our choice school. Well he made a lasting impression on her she calls him Jonathan James (not his name lol) and so he was invited to her costume party, where I ran into another friend Ana and she invited Julian and I to her brothers costume party this last Saturday.  
I really didn't plan to do anything this Halloween besides taking the little ones trick or treating. So of course I had no costume, and have you gone to any of the costume stores this close to Halloween it is a total mad house. We decide anyways to go Spirit on Wednesday to see what they have I had no idea what I even wanted to dress up as. I finally see a flapper dress and thought oh that's pretty cute did not really care for the $49.99 price tag for such a cheap costume but I was already flustered, and of course they don't have my size all they had was small grrrr. Gave up and left went to Target the next day found Julian's costume, but nothing for me. Finally Saturday as I was getting ready for work I decided I finally need a coat because its too cold outside I go back into my closet and I see this lace dress I completely forgot I had. I wore it I believe last new years eve. I thought this is perfect to dress up as maybe the 20's  era, I looked over to my accessories and found a head piece but no long strands of pearls. So one last quick trip after work to target and my costume was finally complete. I was so proud of my self. What do you guys think of my costume??
 The party was tons of fun of course, I liked seeing all the different costumes I was surprised Karen was able to find and finish her corpses bride costume she looked great.

Happy Halloween!!
Until next time!

Family Fun: Del Osso' family farm

Hi! this past weekend we finally decided to go out to the pumpkin patch. We really  had our hopes on going to the pumpkin festival in Half Moon Bay, but you really have to leave really early so you don't get stuck in traffic (one way lanes each way) I really wanted to sleep in since it was Sunday I usually have to go to work. Have I mentioned how mush I hate working on weekends. It sucks especially during this time of year all the festivals they have. But anyways we decided we would go to the Dell Osso' family farm you have probably seen it before near I-5 and I-205. I've seen it tons of times when we use to live in Sacramento and would come down here to the bay area. We would always say we need to go stop and visit, but for some reason we never did even during Christmas they have it all decorated. 

It was supper warm this day which made it feel like we we at the pumpkin patch in the middle summer. I went all bundled up in boots even and I should have been wearing a summer dress it was so that hot. The maze was fun we got lost over and over again apparently we cant read maps and have depended far too much on our talking GPS when it comes to directions. So after 30 minutes of feeling like we were going in circles we decided to retrace our steps and get out of their. We were surprised at the amount of activities they had here I never knew they had so much to do. The little ones had tons of fun and we were there for quite a a few hours til late in the evening. I would defiantly  recommend this patch to anyone.

Until next time...

Winchester Mansion

Hello! So last night finally after many many (one more MANY) years on my bucket list, we finally went to the Winchester mansion!!! Our tour was not until 10:30 so we decided to first go for some dinner and drinks on Santa Row. Which I guess is suppose to be like an oh so fun and fabulous upscale area in SJ, I've never been their before. Made me wish we would have gone even earlier to do some shopping. Oh parking it took us about 45 minutes to find parking, it was a total nightmare. We had our fingers crossed we would not loose our reservations because when we had called Yard House the wait was an hour and a half long. They were really nice though when we called and told them we were running late they said they would still hold our table. So finally at the restaurant Julian was in heaven tons and tons of different beer on tap. I'm not much of a beer drinker so of course I had red wine. It was yummy. Ugh than mishap happens a waitress breaks a plate in front of me and spills some kind of sauce on my legs and arms GREAT!! glad I was wearing black pants. The manager came over apologized and gave me her card told me to have my clothes dry cleaned on her. I told her it was ok I probably wont be coming back. Than I was like oh I sounded rude, than I told her its because we're not from this area. She said oh ok than anything I ordered was on the house. Finally our friends arrived they couldn't find parking either if you ask me it would have been easier to drive together since we live in the same area, but whatever that didn't occur to Julian (I let him plan this date night)

It was already 9:30 still had to order food we were all starving because of that already a little tipsy. We had to all eat our food super fast to make our tour.
I don't know how we made it, but we did. Oh and because we were running late we couldn't change into our flats in the car so yeah had to do the tour in heels. Which would have not been so bad if I wasn't wearing them since 8 in the morning (So yeah my feet sill ache) Our tour started and they take a picture of your group before you enter with riffles, we didn't buy them since the bottom of my shirt was stained. On with the tour we met our tour guide she was pretty creepy looking, I wasn't sure if that was just her look or she was in character but she was creepy. Also on our tour was a tourist that says she feels spirits so that was kind cool. I didn't go to the tour to be scared or to encounter some kind of paranormal activity like the rest of my group. I just went to look at the houses architecture and the crazy layout, I like that kind of stuff. The tour started in the room with all the priceless Tiffany stained glass and lasted about an 1 hr  1/2. We stayed behind for the most part from our whole group so we can some what explore on our own which is nearly impossible since most doors are locked or roped off that's what I didn't like. Also by the end of the tour everyone was kinda tired I didn't get to go out to the front of the house. Overall the tour was ok next time maybe ill take the behind the scenes tour in a couple years.

I hope you guys like my photos they are not the greatest quality since NO photography is allowed had to take them on the DL. They repeat that a few times..

Until our next adventure..

9 to 5: Lost at what to wear

Hi!Today's outfit at the office, its getting so hard trying to decide what to wear to work. Its been freezing in the morning and than around 12:00 it starts to warm up to mid 80's that's warm here. Especially with all the running around I do at work. I started with this skirt and I was going to wear a more fitted top with a light Cardigan and opened toed shoes. Than saw this sweater thought haven't worn that in a while lets try it on, but it did not feel right with the top I had on. Paused getting ready to make sure Jon was ready of course he wasn't he was playing a video game with his cousin that's visiting us for the week. After threatening him that if he wasn't ready in five minutes with teeth brushed he would be banned FOREVER from video games. Went back to finish getting ready, crap only had 10 minutes left threw on this collard shirt under my sweater. My opened toed shoes weren't going to do it my toes were already cold, so threw on these booties instead.

Hello! everyone I wanted to try something new on my blog maybe ill try and do this once a week with Juliana or Jonathan. I see on instagram or other blogs parents post "Outfit of the days" for their little ones I think they are so cute!!!
