Feelin' Pretty Lucky

This sign was taped above my airplane window.

Today, on this day of thanks, I am lucky to have a moment to stop and realize just how lucky I really am. Lucky to be in love with my husband, lucky to have a job I look forward to, lucky to have a family that loves and supports me and whom I love and adore, lucky to have friends who I'd travel to the ends of the earth to be with, and lucky to have the wherewithal to appreciate it all.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Shower for Baby Luskey!

The beautiful Mommy-to-be with her shower cake!

Two weekends ago, I traveled up to Santa Rosa (location of my bachelorette party and various other happy occasions) for my sweet sister-in-law's Baby Shower! I took the morning flight into Oakland where she picked me up and we drove to Santa Rosa for the noon shower. The party was intimate and girlie - everyone was so excited to celebrate the future addition to the Luskey family!

Does it get any cuter than a
black and grey leopard maternity dress??

Everyone grabbed a gift, opened it and shared it with the group!

After the baby shower, I got to be with my darling Ali Rae! We joked that we were fitting an entire day into 4 hours. First, we toured her adorable apartment, then we got coffee and a scone as she showed off her neighborhood, next we got manicures before finally returning to change for dinner.

Drink before dinner at Chez Pannise!

A golden tooth. Perfect.

The next morning we ate brunch at Rick & Anne's. Since it was such a popular joint, we enjoyed some Pete's coffee while we waited.

Of course, someone had to order the potato boat. And turn it into a boat. With a fork knife. And Splenda mast.

Makes me want to sing his favorite
Glee mash-up just thinkin' about it.

A wonderful weekend although I had to leave the other half of the Santa Monica Luskeys behind. We have had a busy November (hence the sporadic blogging) and an even busier upcoming holiday season. I promise to do my best to blog as much as humanly possible.

Career update: I am working full time now - WOOHOO! Good for me, bad for blogging.

More to come on that soon!

Office Overhaul

Since November 1st, it's been my personal mission (and my job) to organize the office and finally implement a system that allows the office to run more smoothly and efficiently. So what did I do first? Went to Target! Check my handywork:

Terry's Corner: "Before..."

Terry's Corner: "After!"*
(*It's not finished, but it looks pretty darn good so far!)

My Corner: "Before..."

My Corner: "After!"

Feels awesome to work hard and have fun while you do it! Stay tuned for more workplace transformations....
