San Antonio, TX

 November was without a doubt, one of the busiest months for me this year! But one good thing was that I got get together with my family for one week. We decided to meet in San Antonio, TX and it was super nice! Here are a few pictures I took during my trip ;)

Leaving LA...
The Alamo
San Antonio's River Walk

We went to a lot of these shops, they had a little bit of anything and everything you can think of! Super fun!
Lots of Tex-Mex food of course ;)
One of my favorite things was that there were deer all over the place, evem right outside our door! I wish I could have brought them with me to California!

My embroidery made it on TV!!!

My embroidery was featured on TV!!! :) One of my awesome customers from Etsy, ordered the embroidery set (wall art & mobile plushies) posted on September as "Latest Hippo Friends" to use for a baby's nursery. Because the mom-to-be is a news anchor, they made a special baby feature about her nursery decorations. Check it out! They also listed my esty shop on their website: 10WTSP Tampa Bay's News Leader

Frankenstein and his Bride

Homemade Sweet Potato Chips

If you own any kind of food slicer (food processor, mandolin, etc...) I recommend making your own chips! I saw a show on food network and decided to give it a try. Just slice very thinly your favorite veggie, you can try sweet potatoes, yams, parsnips, carrots & more. Just deep fry them in olive oil until they are golden (not extra virgin! if you are heating it up, it's best to use regular olive oil when cooking) Then remove them from the oil and lay over paper towel to drain excess oil. Season with salt, a little bit of pepper and a hint of garlic powder. They taste delicious...way better than any bag of processed chips I ever had!

Watching Birds

Every day, around sunset all the birds gather near my house. There seems to be thousands of them, it's real fun to watch them and apparently I'm not the only who thinks so. Look at my cute little couple just loving it.
