Old Friends, RAK, and a Power Outage

I'm still catching up on my 365 posts, but at least I'm now posting for the proper month!
November 1 2010
Recently my company was involved in a lawsuit that I had to testify in. Rob (pictured here with me) was also in this court case, for the company suing us. Rob and I had remained friends after our companies parted ways. We couldn't talk during the trial but after it was all over we got together for drinks to laugh at how weird the situation was!

This was a sneak peek at some cookies I did for a girl's birthday. She loved Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, make-up, sparkly things and basically all things girlie. You can see the full collection here.

November 3 2010
We had a scheduled power-outage for some maintenance. The electricians rang huge extension cords through our office to keep some lamps on, computers and phones. It was actually kind of soothing to work in a dark office all day.

November 4 2010
RAK: Random Act of Kindness. Today I got this gift package in the mail from a dear friend of mine back in Wisconsin. She got me addicted to Alterra coffee and this vidalia onion sauce. This sauce, is, oh my, I mean, crack it open and drink the stuff straight up good! It made my whole week to get this in the mail!

November 5 2010
Another sneak peek at some baby shower cupcakes I did. It was a jungle theme, but in pastel colors. This little giraffe was my favorite. You can see the whole collection here.

November 6 2010
My friend Kelly and I went out for dinner, which lead to a late night happy hour. The place we were at had a variety of odd combination cocktails so we gave them a shot. Kelly had a blackberry poblano pepper margaria and I had a pineapple basil cocktail.
Blackberry Poblano=really gross. Almost like a fruity bloody mary. And not in a good way.
Pineapple Basil=AMAZING. Who knew that basil would be good in a drink?

November 7 2010
I laughed when I saw Caesar sleeping like this. That cant be all that comfortable.

November 8 2010
I busted Sookie trying to steal my dinner.

Thats all for this week!

Kitchen Makeover and Star Wars Dogs

October 21 2010
I had to appear in court today for my company's trial. This was a random lounge I walked through while winding through the maze that is the Minneapolis Skyway.

October 22 2010
My kitchen....BEFORE.

October 23 2010
Its October and flowers are still blooming in my garden!

October 24 2010
My kitchen....AFTER! My parents came to visit and installed new cabinets for me. We never really used the table that was in the corner, and I was running out of storage space.

October 25 2010
Everyone always makes comment about how weird Caesar's feet are. I thought I'd take a photo of him from an angle that showed just how strange they really are!

October 26 2010
A close up view of my new kitchen storage!

October 27 2010
Mike (my work spouse) and me on his very last day of work. *sniffle*

October 28 2010
I got to ride along in a 747 today! The aircraft maintenance mechanics let me ride along on one of their checks. I only had my cell phone though, so the photo isn't the greatest.

October 29 2010
Cream cheese pumpkin roll=AMAZING.

October 30 2010
I attempted to make Sookie and Caesar, Ewok and Yoda. Caesar is actually dyed green. However it faded really quickly so you can hardly tell in this photo. Oh well, I tried.

October 31 2010
My pumpkins! I carved these three designs, and love them!!

Whew! Well that catches me up on October! Up next, November!

Remember how Caesar ate the hallway carpet? Well it turns out it was hardwood floor and looks awesome!!

October 14 2010
Making spiced apple cider! YUM! It makes my house smell wonderful!

October 15 2010
This is a view of St Paul from the Wells Fargo building. My company was involved in a lawsuit and I had to be part of the trial. I met with our company's lawyers in this office, with this amazing view!

October 16 2010
I went on a Photo Safari in downtown Minneapolis. We walked around for 4 hours with professional photographers who taught us new tricks. This was one of my favorite shots. I especially love the reflections!

October 17 2010
I know its blurry, but I just love this photo of Sookie and her little grin. Don't you want to squeeze her?!

October 18 2010
This is my double wreath that I made just for the Autumn season.

October 19 2010
I took this one with my cell phone. I came into the room and saw Caesar and pulled his bed and Sookie's bed together to make himself one big bed. Think he's trying to tell me something?

October 20 2010

The final farewell to my work spouse, Mike. I'm really going to miss working with him.
That's all for catch up part II!

My friend Heather and I attended the Minneapolis Zombie Pub Crawl. It was this crazy night of zombies and yelling about brains!
