a december saturday

Today, I had a lazy morning with Nick and Maggie.


We had bacon, eggs, fruit, and coffee.

We cuddled on the couch in pajamas.

We’re watching the first snow fall.

Our yard went from this –


to this, in just over an hour.


Our cookie stash is dwindling.


I’m pretty sure I perfected my chocolate chip cookie recipe last night. Coming soon!


And I bought my first ever ugly Christmas sweater. I am so excited – I even wore it grocery shopping today, just to spread some Christmas cheer ; )

Football is on, and I’ve got more cookies and chex mix to make!

Happy first Saturday of December!

Here’s hoping for a good night of friends, football, snowflakes, good food, and maybe some hot chocolate.


Help Holly + me raise money for Jovenes en Camino, an orphanage in Honduras for abused, homeless and orphaned children. Tis’ the season for  giving – we hope you’ll join us in this challenge.


  1. Sounds like a very relaxing day. Can’t wait to see the cookie recipe and a pic of you sporting the Xmas sweater. ;)

  2. yaay for snow and sweet pups! :D

    AND chocolate chip cookies! and football (go ducks !!)

    that is an AWESOME sweater! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

  3. I’m amazed that my friends and family in VA and NC have snow, and there is none here. It’s so odd. I’m not complaining because I just got back from a walk in the sun, but it is still weird. Enjoy your ugly sweater party.

  4. Ooh! Snow! I’ll have to call my parents to ask how they are enjoying it. :-)

    Better get to the oven and start baking again! ;-)

  5. I actually don’t think that sweater is that ugly compared to other ones I’ve seen–glad you enjoyed your day!

  6. Sounds like a perfect winter morning!

    Haha that sweater ROCKS!

  7. Yay for snow!!
