Chop Chop!

The time has come. After almost 7 years of growing my hair out I decided I have had enough and am ready for a change. Over thanksgiving while I was in Utah I decided to chop 11 inches off and haven't looked back. I wasn't able to donate it since there is bleach in it which feels like such a waste but oh well. Beau prefers my short hair now and it has been so liberating and fun to do something different! It's already growing too fast!

Lunch with Ann

Back in September an invite was sent out to the mormon women of greater Boston to join a luncheon being held with Ann Romney. As promotion for her new cook book she was holding these lunches in various cities around the country which included food made from her recipes and free cookbooks! And how often do you have an excuse to go to the Ritz?? (answer- never)

Ann spoke for a few minutes about the book and was even more beautiful and classy in real life then I imagined. It was such a fun random girls day out! Thanks Ann!


the tiniest bottle of tobasco sauce I've ever seen. We were all freaking out.

Halloween 2013

October 31st, 2013 was another one for the books. Although it's hard out here in Boston NOT to have halloween be amazing. There is so much to do and the whole community really gets into the festivities of it all! There was rain the day of but it was surprisingly warm so we decided to brave the evening trick or treating anyways.

Beacon hill is the coolest place on the planet for trick or treating. hands down. Rosa, a young woman from the ward met us at the apartment and then we walked over to beacon hill to meet up with other friends. Tennyson was the cutest little pumpkin for his first halloween, I was Pippi longstocking and Beau was a scare crow. I will make beau dress up every year till the day I die. He's such a good sport about it :)

It wouldn't be halloween with out Icabawd Crane and the Headless horseman. Especially since we visit sleepy hollow cemetery out here.

 

He probably should have been a pirate since he only had one tooth for ever





 Beau was teased the whole time with how intense he was with the trick or treating. He did not miss a single door and was offering candy trades with other kids in true Jewkes fashion.

Rosemary Beach 2013

The long awaited Florida vacation finally came! Beau has talked about Florida beaches since we were dating and how they are infinitely better then CA beaches or any beach he'd been to for that matter. So when some of his family was planning a trip to Rosemary beach we were all for it. It definitely did not disappoint. Along the pan handle of Florida are organized vacation communities each with their own style. One of these is Seaside where the Truman show was filmed if that gives you any idea. Rosemary is a newer community and was such a blast.

(get ready for picture overload)
