Our latest home improvement project: hardwood floors! We had this done two weeks ago and we absolutely love our new floor. With a dog and a baby, the carpet wasn't staying very clean. We thought the hardwood would add a nice touch to the living room and dining room area. We are very happy with the results.

(We still need an area rug for under the table. And eventually we will get a new table and chairs that match the room better.)


Here you can see more detail of what the wood looks like.

And you can see Cracker lounging in the sun.

Greetings from South Beach

I am in Miami this weekend for the South Beach Food & Wine Festival for work. (My company is a sponsor of the event.) It's been a fun weekend. The weather is warm, the beach is beautiful and there's been plenty of great food and lots of celebrities. All the stars of the Food Network are here. I've seen most of them. Here's a pic with myself, my co-worker Naddia, Giada, and Giada's husband.

Giada was very nice. I met her twice- once on the plane and once at the hotel.

FHE with Mitt

This morning we found out that Mitt Romney would be making a last minute stop here in California tonight. We were excited to go see him! We invited a few friends to join us and we headed up to the Sky Harbor at the Long Beach airport.

This was my first political rally and it was fun to be there with all of the other Mitt Romney fans. Isaac had a great time too. He is always so happy when there is lots of noise and commotion.

Everyone remember to go vote tomorrow!
