We were happily surprised by the gift of falling snow on Christmas morning. We didn’t even check the weather forecast, so we were all smiles when we looked outside.
After exploring the snow a bit, I warmed up with hot chocolate and turned my attention to under that tree. Wrapped presents are so pretty underneath the tree. I have to admire each one before I open it, so they know that I think they are pretty. But I try to imagine that they are just bursting with excitement for me to open them, because they know I will be so happy with what is inside.
I just got back from spending some time up in the northwest with The Girl’s family for the holidays and it was a great time as always. I have to admit though, I don’t think I will ever get tired of the view from up there as it’s completely epic.
Ahhh! Its snowing inside!
Who said pumpkins are just for fall?
We spray painted all the things gold. For the pumpkins, we spray painted them, cut some decorative holes, and made them into festive lanterns. We also gold-ified some squashes, pinecones, and branches. They all made lovely decorations for a very special occasion.
I appreciate creative Christmas decorations. The guy and I had a late lunch at one of our favorite spots, 24 Diner, and they went and put Christmas trees upside down on the ceiling. It was such a fun, creative holiday surprise.
When I first heard of Fab, I thought, oh great, another one of those sites that will send me 500 emails. But I was wrong. They are awesome. I get to see all kinds of products and designers I wouldn’t normally see. And they are cool. For instance, I probably wouldn’t have seen these beautiful prints if it weren’t for Fab:
My reasons for making a pie were threefold:
- We just got engaged, so we can do whatever we want.
- My fiance’s favorite kind of pie is pecan pie, and I need to learn how to make one for him.
- I have been having trouble with my pie crusts, and after watching the master make turkey day pies, I really thought I could conquer the crust.
I wish I could say that it was equal part all those reasons, but I won’t lie. It was mostly because I wanted to make a perfect pie crust.
