The Month Of Sag's

This is the Month of Sagittarius!  So many of us are December babies and I want to say a very Happy Birthday to all of my amazing friends born under this sign!  This of course includes my Husband whose birthday is just two days before mine but always puts my day first!

The biggest and most exciting news for this month (to me anyway) is that it snowed in town!  OK, so it was only a few cm, but snowed, IN TOWN!

This month is already going by way too fast! Let's see, Kyle and I went to Whistler for American Thanksgiving, just the two of us and our mutts.  We stayed right in the village and had an amazing time! We cooked (or should I say Kyle cooked) a full Thanksgiving meal that was perfect and it was even better that we got all the leftovers.  The village looks so pretty with all of the lights, I love walking around and checking out all of the shops.  We had dinner at Araxi one of the nights and I cannot recommend this place enough if you are looking for a place to have a really nice dinner — and you happen to be in Whistler. Oh, we also broke down and got helmets.  Yes, after all these years of fighting it I decided that I should protect myself and wear one. I have a picture below of exactly how I feel when I wear one.

In keeping with the 90's concert tour we seem to be on, we also went to see Pearl Jam.  Remember when I said Chris Cornell was the best?  Well, I think I have to add Pearl Jam to that as well.  They played for four hours, and each hour got better and better. The fans are incredible and so devoted, it was a really fun night.

Kyle had his work holiday party at the Vancouver Museum, Microsoft knows how to throw a party. I needed a good excuse to go out and buy a new dress and heels for the night.  But really, I just wanted to get my hair done.  Why is it that all you need is a blow out and you feel like a million bucks? Since cutting off all of my hair I wasn't sure how in the hell I would style it and if it would look cute.  My new salon that I go to did a pretty damn good job if I do say so myself.  Oh and I have decided that I am wearing red and plum lips all winter long.  Not that you give a shit, but if you are looking for good colors you should look at MAC Viva Glam III and Ruby Woo. Clinque also has Almost Lipstick in a color called Black Honey that they cannot keep in stock.  I take this as a personal challenge and will find this as I am out and about downtown tomorrow.

Vancouver has so many things to do this month and the city really gets into the Holiday Spirit! You can check out everything the city has going on here. We haven't had a chance to check out too many things as I was back in California last weekend celebrating Girl's Christmas.  I am going to update with another post this week as I want to share a gift-guide of sorts with you!  The girls go all out every year and get the best gifts and I think you all should know about them.

Until are some pictures of our month so far...
