A Busy Bee for Halloween

I was a busy bee for this Halloween! Us Klein's decided to hang out with my parents for the weekend. While my dear husband was watching Red Zone (the Charger game was blacked out) I decided to carve pumpkins. It was a beautiful southern California fall day so I decided to carve outside. I totally cheated and bought a pumpkin carving kit complete with designs. I tested out the "easy" owl first and then moved onto the "challenging" spider. I loved the detail work especially since I was rocking out to the Journey station on Pandora the whole time. When I finished I was inspired to find a recipe for the left over pumpkin seeds which I found here. I recommend keeping them in the oven for at least 60 minutes, mine got nice and toasted. Now to enjoy my jack-o-lanterns and tasty pumpkins seeds! Happy Halloween everyone!

Weekend in San Diego

Last weekend Bobby and I got the opportunity to stay at the Andaz Hyatt in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. It is a very hip and cool hotel. I loved the vibe and felt so inspired by the decor. We enjoyed dinner at Quarter Kitchen downstairs and then headed to the rooftop for some dancing! The next morning we took the trolley (only $5 for a day pass!) to Qualcomm stadium for the Charger/Patriots game. It was a heartbreaking loss but we enjoyed the atmosphere and friends. To nurse our wounds Bobby and I went out to dinner with our good friends Brett and Cara at Filippi's in Little Italy, a San Diego landmark. After a delicious meal, a bottle of wine, and some lively conversation we walked over to Extraordinary Desserts for some sweet treats and coffee. Little Italy is such a neat community, I would love to live there someday. All in all a very busy weekend!

Finally Fall!

It feels like it is finally fall! Gloomy weather and pumpkins everywhere. My husband and I were invited by our friends Joel and Karis to head out to Bates Nut Farm. We had a blast looking through all the "Big Macs." Bobby and I found a 56 pounder for my Momma. She loved it. We got out to Valley Center around 11ish and cruised around checking out all the pumpkins. Bobby found us a wheelbarrow so we could load up the pumpkins. After finding the perfect ones we paid for them and went to check out the General Store. It was packed! After some kettle corn we decided to head back home. I can hardly wait to carve up the pumpkins we got. I'm just waiting to get inspired as to how to carve them!

Entering New Territory

Welcome to On The Hunt! I decided to start a blog to chronicle my hunts for good times, fashion finds, and great designs. I got the name and inspiration from my Momma. It's a phrase we have used in our shopping excursions together. I'm always on the hunt for something. My most recent good time happened in Palm Desert for my friend's bachelorette party.We stayed at the Desert Springs Marriott in one of the villas. Although most of the pictures are PG13, here are a few photos from the weekend.
