Back to school for me (and Kate) - The day went quickly followed by an after-school work out session - I'm trying to do that whole work out thing again!
Kate! Remember when we ran outside in the SNOW last year to get beach bodies for Phoenix?
This is one of my favorite holiday things that has been in my life since I was a baby. This calendar was hand made for me (each ornament is hand made also!!) and you hang an ornament on the tree every day starting December 1st until Christmas!! Yet another tradition passed down from Momma Cooper :)
I have a super long wish list this year (and it keeps growing). This adorable print is definitely topping the list!
"I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may - light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful"
Merry Christmas, Tis the Season, and Welcome to my apartment!!!
I must start by saying that this Christmas tree is the same Christmas tree that I shared with Kate Bing last year -- putting it up was very emotional and brought back some excellent memories (especially the one that I knocked all the ornaments down and ruined Christmas).
I love the tree and this little snowman. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these days leading up to Christmas!! Christmas carols, shopping, lights, high electric bills, and drinking lots of hot chocolate.
Nile obviously loves Christmas too.
We hung lights on the outside of my porch - my porch that overlooks the dumpster behind Kroger. Needless to say, my balcony is the only one with Christmas lights. Hey, those Kroger workers need some Christmas Spirit too!!!
Happy Birthday Jesus! My mini nativity:
Obviously, Santa was there the day our Savior was born :)
So this Thanksgiving was the first Thanksgiving without my family. The thought of the drive from York to LI was too daunting...especially after crashing my car last year!! I went to Em's for an almost as good as family Thanksgiving. It was wonderful. It involved a little of this:
A little of this:
And a lot of this:
But I'm feeling super sick so this evening is dedicated to recording grades online and trying to feel better so school isn't horrible tomorrow :)
