Wine-ing about Sonoma!!!

Okay, So I was sent to Sonoma California last weekend for work. I know, I know...it's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it : ) The shoot was awesome...the crew was fantastic, our talent couldn't have been more accomodating and the weather was amazing. Here are a few pictures from our shoot out there...we were shooting promo wraps for the Dream Home that my company gives away every year. I can't show pictures of the home, but here are some of the shoot. People are always asking me what I do for work...well, I gotta tell you, I am blessed with an awesome job! I write and produce for a major cable network and it really is a blast sometimes.

We shot at two gorgeous wineries in Sonoma and did a little wine-tasting after work with the crew.

This was our director and our producer in Sonoma...
they were fantastic...and lots of fun. The best part of the weekend though, was that one of my best and dearest friends, Donna, was able to fly down from Oregon to meet me and hang out for the weekend! That's her on the right.

It was sooooooooo great getting to spend time with Donna and catch up. I miss her and her family terribly since they moved away. She is truly an amazing woman and friend and I'm so glad that we got to spend time together this weekend.

Thanks so much for coming, Donna! I love you girl!!!!!

And thanks too to my amazing husband and Mom who took awesome care of our kids while I was gone. I love you both so much!!!

Hooray for Fall!!!!!!!!!

Oh, I just love Fall in East Tennessee! The smells, the colors (not as great this year because of the dry conditions), beautiful crisp weather, the leaves, pumpkins, Halloween and long sleeves! We've been going on "nature walks" and collecting leaves...then we iron them between sheets of wax paper and put them in the window to make little "stained glass" leaf art. So fun...just like when I was a kid!

And of course...one of my absolute favorite things to do in the fall...take the kids to the Pumpkin Patch. We went this past Saturday and had a blast. Grandma M, and some of our friends joined us for a wonderful day. The weather was beautiful and we all had a great time.

Look at these two little cuties! Such buddies...and their Moms are our good buddies too. We all went on the hayride together and picked out our pumpkins.

Here's my Bestbud, D and her daughter (The future Mrs. J2)

And, just because I actually got them to "pose"...a sneak peek at J and J's Halloween costumes...
aren't they just hilarious, really getting "into" their characters. We are going to a really great Halloween party that night with all the cool stuff...crafts, apples, and of course tricks or treats. In the words of the great Charlie Brown, "I got a rock". Actually it should be "I gotta rock!"
I just love this time of year and I'm grateful to God for giving us this time and the glory of His creation.
