I met up with my mom and sisters for a day of eating, shopping and catching up in Walnut Creek. It was sunny and beautiful but chilly, so I finally got to test out my first, legitimate winter jacket. Broadway Plaza gives the Stanford Shopping Center a run for its money, and they were starting to put out Christmas decorations. We aren't the most efficient shoppers (ahem, three trips to J. Crew), but we got a lot of our Christmas shopping done and didn't stop laughing the entire time. I cannot wait until we are together for Thanksgiving!
