A Haunting We Will Go

With just a few days before the Annual Wilde Family Halloween Party we decided to be ghosts. Typical. I love how easy these costumes came together.
 The makeup? AMAZING! Thank you D.D. for doing what you do so well!
Scared? You should be!

Somebody's 30!

Happy Birthday Steele!
There's a lot of celebrating to do when someone has been on this earth for 30 wonderful years! And celebrate we did.
There's a whole story behind this brand new 2015 Toyota Tacoma I won't bore you with, but I will say Steele outdid us all with this gift to himself.
It's a beauty! And well deserved.
 Happy Birthday baby brother! I love you!

Another Birthday!

If you've followed my blog for a while, you'll know that birthdays in my family are a big deal. (It is also just about the only time I actually blog. I'm trying to be better.) This was what I woke up to my birthday morning.
Can you believe these flowers!?! D.D. spent nearly 5 hours on Mom's bed making these! I love love love them!
Everything was so bright and happy!
There were also fresh flowers! Gladiolas and gerbers are some of my very favs.
I opted for birthday cherry pie. My mom's pie took me back to my childhood. It was delicious and gorgeous! 
It was a fun weekend and I felt very special. I have the greatest family!

Olive & Thyme

We visited the new Olive & Thyme location to kick off my birthday weekend. It's a gourmet cafe and marketplace. So charming!
We arrived before 6pm on a Friday. It was pretty empty, but before we left all the tables were full.
There is indoor and outdoor seating. I LOVED this long wooden table. Typically used for larger parties, we witnessed two smaller parties at either end.
The interior is bright, white and airy. I love the black board.
There is so much to look at while you wait for your food to arrive. Beautiful gift ideas!
A long dessert counter? Yes please! And look at all that gorgeous copper on the back wall.
Oven roasted turkey and havarti with avocado and sundried tomato panini. So good! I ate every bite. The food is locally sourced and made from scratch to create fresh quality food.
We finished the meal with dainty macarones. Mmmm pistachio!

I would definitely recommend a visit to Olive & Thyme. The service was a little lacking, but the atmosphere is clean and inviting. I think they serve warm water (no ice) to encourage beverage purchases.

Before we left we noticed Wil Wheaton having a quiet meal on the patio. As you do.
