Handsome Husband and I were lucky enough to be invited to the new beautiful home of The Esquire and Baker Girl. We enjoyed seeing their brand new place, and an amazing dinner prepared by BG!
I had the dreaded 1-hour glucose test, failed, freaked the eff out, took the 3-hour test, and passed! Very typical Stress Casey behavior to have a meltdown before the problem entirely presents itself.
I had a lovely time catching up with an old high school teacher of mine over coffee (well, decaf tea for me). It was so nice to hear about a program I was heavily involved with in high school (Model United Nations, for those wondering), how it's changed, and to get Mr. T updated on many of his former students and the awesome things they are doing nowadays.
HH and I got to head to San Diego for a soccer game on the field I spent so many days and nights watching him play on! This season will be the last that there are players on the team HH played with, so it is a little sad for him, the end of an era, if you will.
We had one busy Saturday in mid-October! We started the day off with a kickball game (okay, I watched a kickball game) with some of HH's newer friends from law school, were hosted to a lovely BBQ at Best Cousin's new place, and ended the evening with a viewing of Captain Phillips after being invited by Aunt Fancy Chef to join her and some family at the luxury movie theater!
We got to support some fundraising Kindergarten Teacher was doing for her chosen charity by attending an evening at a local wine bar. Though my glass was longing for wine instead of water, the conversation with some of my favorite ladies made up that.
Handsome Husband and I set sail on a Tiki Cruise around Newport Harbor with some law school students.
Gardening Mom and I got a start on our Christmas Shopping at Citadel Outlets' annual Shopping Extravaganza! This year, MIL Red and Grandma Beach Bum decided to join also, so it was fun to meet up for lunch and a break from the shops.
Aunt Fancy Chef invited us to a lovely charity event for South County Outreach called Empty Bowls, where we got to try lots of yummy soups from local restaurants, bid on some silent auction items (though we didn't win, boo!) and listen to some lovely speakers.

Handsome Husband attended a Boot Camp for New Dads! Though he said he didn't find it all that informative, I still think it's cute!
I was showered with love and some pretty awesome gifts for our little New Years Baby at my family baby shower!
We celebrated Cousin Halloween's 7th (he's getting way too old these days!) with pizza and cupcakes during a mid-week birthday party!
Halloween ended the month, and we were content with eating fajitas and handing out candy to our whopping two trick-or-treaters! We also spent some time thinking about how fun it will be when our baby girl is here for next Halloween!
In November ... We've got a lot going on! There's a few birthdays coming up, some holiday events, our maternity photos, a second baby shower for this little lady, and lots and lots of prepping for her impending arrival!
