This fall is flying by! We’ve had a lot of rain in Texas over the last few weeks, which has meant lots of rain outs for tennis. So my November has been full of make up matches as well as the last of our regularly schedule league matches.

You may have noticed that my PrimeLending Facebook page has started featuring updates from Austin Pets Alive!. This month, I have finally started volunteering with the organization. Pets have made a logo_apawonderful addition to my life and I love the commitment of APA! to find homes for so many cats and dogs. If you are interested in adopting a pet, go to APA! or your local animal shelter first to find the purrfect addition to your family.


Thanksgiving is right around the corner – one of my favorite holidays. I love the opportunity to gather

with friends and family and appreciate each other. I also love the Thanksgiving meal! I began making the turkey a few years ago and it is actually something I enjoy each time. I follow Martha Stewart’s Perfect Roast Turkey recipe (of course with a few small alterations). The cheesecloth/butter/wine trick makes for a beautiful, moist turkey and amazing gravy every time.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
