#47 What I Am Reading

Karen: I don't so much "real" reading these days, but I love my magazines! now that I am home at my parent's house there are tons of magazines to choose from! I swear my mother subscribes to every publication out there. My favorites right now are Food and Wine, and Ladies' Home Journal. i have been finding some great holiday recipes! I made a pumpkin swirl cheesecake for Thanksgiving for the first time from a recipe I found in Woman's Day and it was a huge success!

Cassie: I am currently re-reading the Deathly Hallows. This one of the first times I am re-reading a book that I can't remember exactly what happened. I need someone to tell where to stop for part 1 of the movie :)

#46 - Babies

Karen: It was a baby filled weekend! On Friday a new nephew was born!!! Welcome Viggo John Thomsen. He makes #16!!! He's a beautiful BIG boy at 9 lbs. 5oz. and I love every inch of him!! I also christened my first godchild on Saturday. It is an honor to be a part of the life of the beautiful Alexis Jane Osgood. And I love that now we can consider ourselves actually "family" with Caitlin and Dave.

Cassie: Sorry for the delay in post, I was having a hard time with this topic. Thanks Karen for helping me think outside of the box. My middle name is 'Ruth' and after some weekend showing of The Goonies in grammar school, I heard the famous line by Chunk 'Baaabbbbyyy Ruth' quite often. Other nick names I have are Sassy Cassie and Cass-dawg, which I only let Karen call me. Sassy Cassie originated when I was about 3, but it still comes out every now and then ;)

#45 - Kitchen Sink

Karen: This is the kitchen sink at my parent's house where Tim and I are currently living. It is at the center of the action. Even though it feels like the kitchen is the smallest room in the house, we all end up being there together. I think it has some magnetic powers in the faucet!

Cassie: This is my brand new kitchen sink and new facuet. Its deeper than our previous sink so you can have plenty of dirty dishes but you won't see them! But I do like when its clean and empty :) Thanks ;)

#44 - My Purse

Karen: this is my Harvey's seatbelt bag. I first saw it in a little boutique in Seattle and fell in love with it right away....finally after a few gift giving holidays passed by, Tim got it for me for my last birthday. It's the perfect size to fit all my junk without getting too messy and unorganized. i can't wait to add to my Harvey's collection!!

Cassie: This is my purse and its been my purse for about a year. I have never been one to switch out purses often. I was thinking that its about time for a new one, but this one is pretty perfect. I like the messenger style, the color is great because its neutral but with a little sparkle, and it has great pockets. Pockets are key for a great purse, at least in my perspective :)
