While I barely made it, I still didn’t read as much as I’d like and this exact same resolution is going on my list for 2013, but with a little twist.
Having a great morning so far. Drinking coffee with holiday candles & christmas trees. So excited for tonight’s Christmas with my parents, Andrew, and Kaylex (bro and sil). This will include lots of chicken pot pie, cocktails, and presents. However, I did get an early present from Andrew and my Dad yesterday morning:
Pull out shelves for the pantry! I’m ecstatic, they’re perfect!
Happy Holidays all!

I am so pleased to give a huge shout out to Printcopia.com. They contacted me to try out their photo to canvas printing and it was great! I have wanted to get one of our photos printed to canvas forever, so it kind of worked out perfectly.
I chose this photo of Andrew and I in the Highlands of Scotland. It was COLD.
The process of ordering this photo was ridiculously simple. And it arrived just a few days later.
A photo print would make a wonderful holiday gift and given how quick and easy it is, the hardest part is choosing which photo!
Many thanks Printcopia! Happy Holidays!

Summing up the year with some GIFs I’ve made. 2012 was good. Real good….here are a couple highlights.
Having May, June, and July off, knowing I had found a job that wouldn’t start until August:
Watching the entire series of Breaking Bad in six weeks:
Watching Homeland‘s much anticipated second season:
Every time I heard “Call Me Maybe”
watching Jef with 1 F win The Bachelorette after calling him as the winner on Episode 1.
Hoping to be back in a little bit with some more. Did you know the GIF turned 25? Check out this awesome animation to celebrate.

These photos highlight the complete transition of weather and festivity within the past couple weeks. The Thanksgiving break was exactly what I needed…feeling tons better and ready to get my Christmas on!
Three things making me super happy right now: glögg (recipe to come!), Candy Cane Joe-Joes, and new clothes.

uhhhhhhh……I’ve been married for 4 years today? That’s insane. I know it sounds sappy, but I seem to be happier with the situation the longer it goes on!
Hope you’re having a great holiday weekend!

I love my husband very much, but omg I love him even more whenever he gives me presents. Andrew has an amazing, amazing ability to give me the most perfect, thoughtful gifts EVER. ALWAYS. This dates back to when we were dating in high school. He has always given me the best presents. I have received surprise purses, satin pajamas, an autographed first edition of my favorite novel, footie pajamas, my best kitchen tool, an iPad, and who knows what else.
This birthday was no different. When we were in Asheville back in September, we looked at these books together at Malaprop’s and I drooled over them. Of course, they were a little pricey, we left and I forgot about them.
I opened my present a few days ago and not only did he order me the two basic volumes, but every. single. book. in. the. series. OMG. OMG. OMG. Overwhelmed doesn’t even describe it.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving–I’m hoping to have a great one full of brisket and birthday, photos to come.

Yep, it’s that time. HOLIDAY MUSIC. (and I also thought this photo from last season accurately describes my mood this morning per last night’s “not even close” election results).
Every year I love to look and see what new Christmas albums are coming out. Last year was amazing…this year? Not so much. With the exception of the indie compilation, Holidays Rule, it’s pretty slim pickings out there.
Holidays Rule Various Artists
Fun., The Civil Wars, The Head and the Heart, and Sharon Van Etten sing holiday favorites = one mega hipster Christmas album! Bring it on!
Christmas in the Sand Colbie Caillat
On This Winter’s Night Lady Antebellum
meh. I’ll give it a whirl.
Cheers, It’s Christmas Blake Shelton
2012 has been my year of country…
All I can say about these last two is. WHAT THE…
Wasn’t kidding when I said slim pickings was I?!?
Oh well, there’s always next year.

What up Monday!? Ugh. Busy, busy week ahead at work, Election Day, & Facetime Lou! Lots of the agenda! Luckily I had a wonderfully restful weekend with lots of cooking, cleaning, and yoga. I decided to give YogaGlo a try and I am so impressed with it. Not sure how well it would work for someone who is just beginning with yoga, but I find it to be kinda amazing. Excited to take another “class” this afternoon after work.
