November in Pictures

It's been a while since my last post. I can hardly believe that we're already in December. This post will be a quick recount of November. So here it is, my November in pictures. Enjoy!

My husband and I went with a couple of friends to Santana Row's Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. They had quite a few of live performance like ballet dance, A Capella choir, and this young singer from American Idol - Deandre Brackensick. No wonder Santana Row was very crowded that day. We almost couldn't find parking. Also because of the crowd, we couldn't take any decent picture of the performance. However, my husband did manage to snap this picture of the American Idol singer after his performance.

After the ceremony, which only lasted around an hour or so, we went to a nearby Chili's for dinner. That day I decided to try dry rub ribs. It looked really good on the menu. However, it was a little bit too dry for my taste =P Fortunately, I asked for BBQ sauce on the side for dipping. The Cajun Chicken Pasta on the other hand, was really good.

Talking about food, on one weekend night in November, I suddenly craved pancake! So we went to IHOP =)

New York Style Pancake
Steak Omelette - my Hubby's fav
Good food ... and yummy hot chocolate =)

OK, enough food talk. Going back to holiday atmosphere here in the U.S.

Even before Thanksgiving passed, Christmas decoration was all over Santana Row. When we went to Valley fair for Black Friday Shopping on Thanksgiving night, we walked passed Santana Row.  It was very pretty! I can't help myself from taking pictures.

Here is one silly shot of me and my friends on Black Friday midnight shopping madness =P

The next day, I went back to Santana Row for unfinished Black Friday shopping ... and photo session =P

Oops, I almost forget about our Chinese style Thanksgiving dinner. We're celebrating a friend's birthday, plus house warming, plus thanksgiving, with bird from the far east. It was more like Chinese New Year's dinner than a Thanksgiving dinner =P I want a traditional Thanksgiving feast next year!
