November 2010 Has Been Awesome

November has been really awesome.....I have been having so much fun that I have been neglecting my blog. Sooo now I am going to play catch up. First.....the aforementioned Gooey Butter Cake was even better then previously reported......seriously amazing!!!!!

November 10th I had lunch at the Olive Garden with some of my favorite ladies, Mom, Sandy and Stephanie. Lunch was delicious and desert even better!!!! I met Stephanie's boyfriend James, a super sweet guy and boy can he eat!!!!! I should mention that we all did pretty well also, except for Stephanie, she is a lightweight!!!!! We all pretended we did not have room for desert BUT when push came to shove, we all managed to do quite well!!!!!

us girls............

Stephanie made me truffles.....they were truly divine.......
they tasted even better than they looked!!!!!!

On November 11th I went to Barlow's Flower Farm for their Christmas open house with my super fun friend Barbara. There are no pictures to prove it but I had an awesome time and the Christmas displays were beautiful.

on November 12, 2010, Chuck took these pictures of the beautiful trees in our back yard.

There were at least 4 bike rides at Allaire (the weather has been super warm) and one in Spring Lake, round the lake and on the boardwalk!!!!!!! At the start of each ride....Chuck proclaimed it would be the final ride of the far, we have had 5 "season final rides".

November 13th....Spring Lake boardwalk with my hunny!!!! It was picture perfect!!!!

A super fun day (with a great meal of course) at Pier Village, in Long Branch,
November 20th.

I am super excited to report that the house (inside) is all decorated for Christmas and it looks amazing. I can't wait to decorate the outside!!!!!
