I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We arrived home from Tucson yesterday afternoon and it was so good to see Cami's little face:)

We were visiting my husbands brother and his wife who are "hikers".  When I was packing I threw in all my cute outfits and at the last minute one workout outfit just in case I could squeeze in a walk.

Hahahahaha.  I never even got to wear anything BUT that!  We hiked everyday so I had to come home each afternoon and wash my one "hiking" outfit.

Jokes on me.

This warning before a hike had me on edge...
If you have spent any time with me you will also learn that I don't like spiders, snakes and now I will throw bears on that list.

So back to Tucson....the city that brings new meaning to the color beige, tan, brown, beigey tan and every shade in between....

I was shocked not to see one white house and it became a joke amongst us of my obsession with white!  You guys already know this about me....

We were hiking down near the border of Mexico close to Nogales and ended up having lunch in a cute little place called The Wisdom's Cafe.

Here is what you need to know....the reward after the hike is a good lunch and a libation!

During a downtown tour I did spot the one yellow building with a turquoise door....take note need more of this!

Am I the last to know that cactus can be purple?

And as if they were reading my mind we did come across a white commercial building.....

These cuties were right outside their backyard...

Not that I cook....but these were served and the fact that you can cook in the microwave was a "win win" for me.  One day I will make it to Costco for the second time!

If you need a good book to read I highly recommend this one which I read on the plane.

It makes me think I need to do more with my life.

Matthew Quinn [kitchen king] has just finished installing the Kips Bay Palm Beach Showhouse and apparently it was down to the wire!  Hopefully the paint is dry as it opens Dec 4th.

Shocked there are no comments here! Mathew's Kitchen is the best for sure!!!! can't wait to see more images.
The other rooms have LOADS of color and are very graphic and slick - not really for me - a neutral gal! BUT Ill wait to see more. Do you think this is the upcoming trend?

I love your stories! Those bright rooms remind me of something I saw in my mom's Ethan Allen catalogue on the would pour over those endlessly.
