Sorry for the radio silence this past week. I'm afraid I don't have much excuse either - we've been lying about the house in a state of unparalleled laziness. After hosting Christmas - which was wonderful! - the gloomy Michigan weather caused us to hole up and be slugs.

But, c'est la vie. I hope that everyone else is having a wonderful holiday, and if you got caught in that stormy weather out east, safe travels to you!

Happy . Holidays!!

I'm signing off for the upcoming holiday - we're hosting Christmas at our house this year, and so there's loads of grocery shopping and baking to do over the next couple of days! Posting next week will probably be a bit sporadic also. I hope that everyone has a very lovely holiday and if you're traveling, safe travels to you!!

Happy Holidays!!

White . Out

I have to admit that I've been lacking much inspiration lately. The end of the semester + a kitchen remodel + the holidays coming has made me ridiculously tired. I'm also having a "growing your blog" moment, where I'm trying to figure out the best combination of what I really like to write about + what others like + what's still new and interesting. Do you ever feel like there's one really important trick for success that everyone else has access to, but for some reason it's impossible for you to figure out? Sigh...

{ List of Relaxing/Refocusing Things My Break Will Include }

1. At least one really good Bloody Mary each week
2. Watching Arrested Development (which I'm pretty sure is the funniest show ever made)
3. Reading something other than student papers
4. Spiced Ginger Snap ice cream
5. Board Games!!
6. Finishing cleaning the basement (this sounds like the least fun, but I will be SO happy once this project is finished!)

We've got a Christmas party tonight + a pinch of work around the house, but then I'm free to tuck in and finish my grading. And then... Christmas break!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

On . A . Sunday . Afternoon

This week has been crazy - grading + end of the semester classes + ripping up the icky linoleum in the kitchen + IKEA + antiquing + grading + grading + a holiday party - so these kind of hazy/kind of relaxing photos are the perfect antidote to the last day of a very busy week.
