A Wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend

Can you believe that Thanksgiving weekend has already come and gone? After this long 4-day weekend, I'm already dreading the alarm clock that's going to go off at 5:30 tomorrow morning. I had an absolutely wonderful weekend and couldn't ask for much more--a great time with family and friends.

One of the highlights was being able to do something I've always wanted to do: cut down a real Christmas tree. Well, I didn't exactly do the cutting...BUT I supervised quite well :) Here's a few pictures from our adventure!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

A Perfect "Laying Low" Weekend

Well, it seems as though the inevitable happened: fall has quickly disappeared and winter has now made itself quite comfortable for what I'm guessing will be the next five months. I shouldn't act surprised--I do live in Minne-SNOW-ta after all!

I took this weekend for some much-needed down time and relaxation. I've been battling a nasty cold and thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to lock myself in the house and finally succumb by matching my home decor to the weather outside.

Stay warm, friends! I'll be sipping my hot chocolate and wrapping up in my blanket until April :)
