i've watched 478 movies
(wished i'd known the mom dies at the end of The Family Stone...sigh)
gained 38 pounds
mostly from eating cheese grits Pioneer Woman Style
because who knew
that the recipe makes enough to feed an entire ranch full of cowboys.
painted my nails opi's suzi skis in the pyrenees
debated whether to keep the second pair of cowboy boots santa brought.
santa rocked by the way
but brown or black?
packed up every single solitary Christmas ornament.
sent the tree to the recycle place
& caught up on laundry.
can you hear the hallelujah chorus?
so here's a few more
shots from here & there this week.
one more gift tag idea.
photocopied the girls silhouettes & resized into wallet size
perfect for gift tags
& glittered the edges.
the girls all waiting for the "ok" to come on down, Christmas morning.
little bit reading Luke 2 before opening gifts
the days of serving fudge pie for breakfast
must come to a screeching halt.
received some of THE cutest cards
feel i sorta underachieved on this years card
the color & all
so i thought i'd share last years
much cuter card.
how weird am i?
meant to share a close up of one of my fave pictures.ever.
my mom in santa's lap, 1953.
i printed it out on canvas
sprayed with adhesive spray
& then very gingerly sprinkled crystal glitter on top.
madison is baker extraordinaire
& after running out to lunch with my sweetie
( which by the way, if you're a local, Farm Burger has THE best burgers in atlanta.promise)
returned home to find her whipping up
dozens of these cuties. from scratch.
she is such a good kid!!
looking forward to digging into this book
a couple great library scores.
poor caroline has been a sicky for days.
this was taken pre-sickie status
but she's been a total trooper.
went to the doc, negative for strep
but she's had it all
cough, fever, congestion, pink eye, viral rash & never complains.
i would complain if i were her.
we had snow here in atlanta for the first time in over 100 years
on Christmas day.
it was absolutely magical.
ps...to answer a few of your questions.
the necklace from the previous post is from j. crew.
boots are lucchese
alrighty, off to watch another movie
& maybe heat up some cheese grits
