Pismo 2

Our first full day here we woke up and went to Penny's for Breakfast followed by a walk on the beach.
Grant was able to catch some really good waves right outside our hotel.

We ended a beautiful day with dinner and drinks at Jocko's.

We got to Pismo last night after a crazy drive.  We followed my mom up.  On the way up we stopped and visited my aunt and uncle and got to see their awesome family home.

This morning we are up and ready to go to breakfast, Grant is off surfing and later tonight we will be meeting up with the family that I use to nanny for in NZ!

Gifted Art

For Christmas I did a watercolor of my partents.
My mom loves to travel and my dad loves to fish so I did a little cartoon painting of each of them.

For some reason the pictures will not get any bigger, it must be a blog glitch right now.

Happy Thursday...

Christmas 2012

 Merry Christmas from the Torrens and the Olson family.
 Last night Grant and I drove up to my family's house and we had fish tacos and margaritas for Christmas eve dinner.  We also did a puzzle and played games.
 Christmas morning we got up early and had french toast for breakfast and opened stockings.
 We then opened all of our gifts.  I got a sewing machine and Grant got a really nice jacket! Thank you mom and dad!
 We then headed outside to watch the firemen come around with santa and hand out candy.

 Santa and the firemen.

 The beautiful sunset!

Christmas Party

 I got to wear my new shirt and jacket to Amanda's Christmas party.
I bought these when I wan in NY!
I guess I could have worn them already, but I hate wasting a good outfit on a nothing day.

Below is a picture of the orange circle with all the Christmas decor.  It looks even more festive in real life.

 The kids getting their gifts.  I remember when I was young every Christmas we got a gift from every aunt and uncle, so we got 4 gifts while all the adults sat there and watched and now I am the adult sitting and watching lol.
 Here is my mom and her mini me Hazel.  I thought they look alike in this picture with the same hair color.
3 sleeps till Christmas morning!

Crazy Christmas Hat Day

Today at work we had crazy Christmas hat and sweater day.  We also had a pot luck lunch.
It was a lot of fun to get to wear all our fun Christmas gear.  My mom got me this great Christmas sweater, but as I was wearing it throughout the day I started thinking this looks less like a joke about a crazy sweater and more like me just wearing a Christmas sweater and looking like someone with no fashion sense.  The funny this is I kinda liked it hahahah.

What I Wore Wednesday & Office

 It has been a crazy week so far! 
This morning I realized this is the last week before Christmas, I don't know why but it felt like it was a long time from now, but here it is!
 Today it rained and rained which is a really nice change in CA, I hope that it is a rainy winter!
 Last week we were moved into our own offices! I love it!

 I am looking forward to all of the Christmas parties this weekend, should be fun...
