Scenes from the Weekend

This weekend David and I went to see his parents up in Auburn.  On Saturday we drove out to Apple Hill and although I was excited to see what all the hubbub was about - so was everyone else! The traffic was horrific and sadly I thought it took away from the scene. I've heard from locals it's best to experience on a weekday. We only got to go to two orchards and then decided to call it a day. No apple picking for me :( We did however get to stop and enjoy some caramel apples as well as purchase some pies and crisps!
Keeping it real here - photo mid enjoyment!
My wonderful in-laws!
The hubby - who told me he is still on picture taking strike with me ever since these photos. 
After we returned home we enjoyed some cider and delicious abalone for dinner.
On Sunday we baked an apple pie and then my mom in law and I went shopping in Grass Valley. She spoiled me with some gorgeous velvet pumpkins and a pretty wrap bracelet. 
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Our local transportation - also how I commute to work. Is about to go on strike at midnight, not looking forward to it at all. I'll be looking at an over two hour commute each way. Silver lining...gold iPhone arrives on Tuesday!!

  3. I love those velvet pumpkins! I've seen them before and and I'd love some for my house. That 2 hour commute sounds miserable, but at least you have your gold iphone to perk you up this week...I want one so badly, I think I'm going to wait for the next round of iphones to upgrade though.

  4. Apple Hill does get insane for the entire month of October! :( We usually hit an orchard or 2 for the little and then find a winery! Beautiful pics girl!

  6. oh my goodness, I am so jealous of your gold iPhone! Sounds like you had a great time and props to your hubby for being such a good sport about the anniversary pics. My husband has a general rule of "if it's not a special occassion, please don't make me pose for photos". Seems fair :)

  7. I know so many people who tried to go apple picking this weekend and all the apples were GONE!
    I can't get over how beautiful those leaves are! It's supposed to be in the 80's all week long down here and I'm pretty bitter about it.

    That's so sweet that your MIL bought you such cute stuff! I love that bracelet.

  18. That stinks about the traffic. Again, we went like 15-years ago and while I remember it being crowded it wasn't that bad. We hit a few antiques stores along the way too and found some gems!
