  1. What a great month.
    That salad looks amazing. Hubbs took me out for my bday and we had something similiar but I’d love brussel sprouts in it too.
    Did I miss photos of the new place?

  2. let me get this straight. you’re going to move, unpack and decorate for christmas all in the next, 2-2.5 weeks? crazy. it’s all i can do to pull the christmas decor out and put it up. over the weekend i got it down from the attic… but couldn’t quite bring myself to put it up. ha.

    also, you better not lose your christmas card since you did not provide me with your new address!

  3. Yay for moving into your new house! I can understand how you feel with your life all crazy in boxes and what not. We closed on our house at the beginning of Nov and still can’t find half of our house items. I’m apparently very very slow at un-packing! But I’m trying to donate items I don’t need anymore as I pull them out of the box and realize that i wont use. Good luck on the move and all the unpacking!! So exciting!

Say what?
