taking a walk

I love this photo.  It was taken last year about this time.  We had gone on a family walk and the weather was gorgeous.  I hope you're having gorgeous weather where you are today.

ten on ten - November 2012

Once again, better late than never, right??

We started off Saturday morning with a photo shoot since we found out that we're expecting a baby girl to be a sister to our precious big boy!

Very shortly after the first photo was taken it started to rain so we ran to a nearby coffee shop.  

For lunch we ended up at an adorable little German cafe that we had been wanting to try out.  

The food was amazing and the service couldn't have been more attentive.  They had a little German "grocery" too where we picked up some stocking stuffers for each other.  

It was a fun family date on a Saturday!

what was waiting for me when I got home - a little weekend cleaning was in order after a busy week

"I waked up!" 

(maybe so or maybe you never went to sleep)

My terrific parents kept the boy!

an amazing cheese plate!

Those nut encrusted things?  Grapes filled with cheese!

(don't worry, my doctor cleared me to eat all cheeses that are pasteurized so I'm good. If this baby has a dairy allergy like her brother I'm looking at a year or so of no dairy in my diet while I'm nursing so you can bet I'm filling up on all safe dairy now!)

And speaking of filling up on dairy, the creme brulee sampler bowls stacked up at the end of a very satisfying meal with great company!

creme brulee flavors in case you're wondering were almond, salted caramel and coconut!

Happy November everyone!

I'm enjoying a fresh start to a new month this morning.

If you read Jesus Calling, I especially enjoyed this morning's entry.
