Iphone Photo Update: November

I disappeared for a bit. Sorry about that. I think life just got too busy for me to blog about it all. 
Isn’t that weird? When I actually have a ton of party planning, prep and execution I am too busy to blog about it. And, when I have a ton of time to blog there is nothing going on and I’m posting about other people’s parties! 
So, I thought I’d share a quick update via Iphone pics to show you that I’ve been busy and let you know that there are fun party posts in the works. 
Went to Slappy Cakes in Portland to celebrate a friend’s birthday.
We then had a fun day enjoying the beautiful fall weather. I love Fall in Portland. 
I’ve been avoiding the many things I need to be doing by playing in the kitchen. 
I’ve had a lot of extra produce—we get weekly bins of organic and (usually) local veggies from this AWESOME company called Organics to You. It has made me look up a lot of fun new recipes so that none of the produce is wasted. Above is only a small portion of the things I’ve made these past few weeks: Cranberry Orange Bread, Drunken Cranberry Sauce, Apple Spice Cupcakes (recipe coming to blog soon), and Cranberry Orange Muffins. I also baked and purred a ghost pumpkin to use in pumpkin pie and pumpkin cranberry cookies
I threw a rustic-styled birthday party for my friend Alicia. And, believe me…throwing a dinner party for 20 people in my tiny apartment= a very busy Jenni.  Real party post coming soon!
Some of my recent projects have been party or gift related… but, the one pictured on the top was just because I was avoiding the projects I needed to be doing. I got prints from Shutterfly.com and went crazy on my fridge. I love it so much I am thinking about doing the same to my hallway. 
I am also working on funny hats and bow ties to be used at my upcoming birthday party ( a fancy pants  themed event). And, because Pinterest has so many great ideas I used a few of them: fabric poms and t-shirt scarf. 
Thanksgiving was fun as always. I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I was also in charge of providing a couple of fun cocktails for our event. The Apple Cider Margarita was delish and my S’more Martini recipe will be on the blog soon.
On Thanksgiving Day (since we were all dressed nice) I threw together a quick holiday photoshoot for our Christmas cards. Good thing I did too…. Cardstore.com had an amazing 70% off sale on Black Friday. So, one more item checked off the huge holiday to-do list!
Oh, and I’ve been spending my time loving on these two guys. It was wonderful having a long weekend with the hubby and my little man is growing up so quick!
That was basically my November in a nutshell. 
Was yours as busy as mine? What did you do this month?
