A walk on the beach.  ~M


Home is where your heart is? Home is where your stuff is? Sometimes you’re just not home and sometimes the adventure isn’t very much of an adventure anymore, and it sets your heart off kilter and you’re just not yourself. And thats OK. So you eat ice cream and pie and browse Pinterest and hope that tomorrow the house will close.  ~N

Came home to find a package on my doorstep that I had not ordered…and found THIS!!!!  No note.  No one taking credit for the the MOST AWESOME advent calendar of 2011.  You should have seen me happier than a 6 year with a new Gameboy.  ~M


Mom makes big lovely moist fluffy scones. I make flat sad dry scones. But for cooking group i made scones. The challenge was to use a family recipe. And they turned out fluffy and decently moist… but because i had to use gluten free all purpose flour it tasted a little funny. Overall a success. And i don’t ever need to do it again ;) ~N

Newcomers Dessert at church last night.  Sunrise Baptist Church in Custer.  What a wonderful group of people!  ~M


Went in search of a new charger for my old little phone that i loved very much… ended up merging our Verizon accounts and using our upgrades. It’s called an HTC Rezound…. little more favorite. ~N

Okay I stinketh at pictures lately-today especially.  My Happy Thought involves being invited, and GETTING TO GO, to a ladies-only get-together at a friends’ house–beautiful decorations, sweet Christmas music, laughter-filled conversation.  I got to stay for OVER two hours-in spite of an imperfect head.  Believe it or not, after 3 years of debilitating headaches, I AM getting better. 

Thank you, Sandi, for a LOVELY afternoon. ~M


Darren and I went to a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert with Carrie and Joel! ~N

A lovely day with family, friends, food, and football.  This was a yummy way to end the day.  ~M


Darren volunteered to make the pie for Thanksgiving so i didn’t have to fight with the crust. He made it gluten free and it was amazing! Spending a lovely day with the family watching football and You’ve Got Mail. ~N

Eggnog, diluted with raindrops, sipped in a hot tub while staring at the stars. Happiness. ~N

Yes, I bought stockings for the pups.  Only $3.50 at Rite Aid.  Don’t they make you smile?  ~M


I forgot to get a pic of our food. We ate steak salad by Sel, Cordon blue by Darren and Amanda brought chips and dip. We ate, played a round of hand and foot, and ended the loverly evening in the hot tub. Nice and toasty. ~N
