Fall flowers

Don't you just love autumn? I put my fake pumpkin on our table, since I don't think we will get trick or treaters this year.
Fall is definitely in the air. And beside my coffee.

Lindt magic

That's right, it says PUMPKIN SPICE on the box. Someone gave this to us at work, and oh boy, it's very tasty with my morning coffee!

United Way Arts Food Truck Festival

Last week I helped organize a big event on campus, the Arts Food Truck Festival! Last Thursday, if you bought your lunch on campus from one of the food trucks, $1 went to the United Way Campaign.

The event was from 11-2, so we lined up lots of entertainment. Here's a blurry shot of the a cappella group practicing.
And look at this weather forecast - a break from the rain! We crossed our fingers and were rewarded, it didn't rain at all during the festival!
Here we are, all set up outside the UBC bookstore.
The food trucks were behind the stage, in a nice, sectioned-off U shape.
And there is the Alumni Centre, who also donated $1 from each lunch sold to our campaign.
I got my lunch from the Dragon Bowl. And there's our poster on the side of the truck.
Here's a line up of the entertainment.
And look, this is the a cappella group (one of four at UBC) called the Choral Reefs. They were so nice and let me sing one song with them! I did the solo on "If I Ain't Got You" and it was tons of fun.
What a great afternoon, and thank you weather gods, for keeping us in your favour. Hopefully we raised some money for the United Way!

Here's a little project I made for a friend, using this pin.
I had to adjust the pattern a bit to make smaller leaves, since I was running out of yarn. But I think they turned out very nicely.

Posters up

I picked up a couple posters last month.
And finally put them into frames near our bar area. Our new apartment is not quite done, but it's feeling more and more like home!

Birthday Boy

Happy birthday to my hubby! We both had busy days, so we made sure to celebrate lots this past weekend.
We did manage to meet up late in the evening for a celebratory beer :)

Thanksgiving 2016

This year we hosted Thanksgiving! It was a little tight in our new apartment, and we were missing the Clarks and my brother and sis-in-law, but we fit.
I made my world famous apple crumble.
And we had a lot more dessert. And other food too - turkey AND ham!
And we took selfies. Happy thanksgiving, all!
