What’s up, buttercups? I haven’t been feeling too well the last couple of days. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m sick, (I NEVER get sick..so THERE!) but allergies and hormones are kicking my ass. Hopefully on the mend soon! Also, we finished the second season of Master of None. Have you seen it yet? SO. GOOD. (I loved the Thanksgiving episode especially.) I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week, and here are a few links to celebrate the mid-week…

Howdy folks! I hope everyone is having a wonderful and restful holiday season!!! Things were getting crazy busy around these parts (I worked a TON during the lead up to Dec. 25th) but after a lovely first Christmas as married folk they’ve started to level off. Phew! On Christmas Eve we stayed up late eating pigs-in-blankets and watching Home Alone (a new tradition if I have anything to say about it!). Then, on Christmas morning we slept in (bliss!), had cinnamon rolls and coffee while we opened presents, and proceeded to straight CHILL all day! Chet and our families spoiled me with so many lovely presents. (Including Alexa!) While we certainly would have preferred to make it home to Kentucky or Louisiana, we still managed to have a pretty perfect day just the two of us. Now, on to the next holiday! Do you have any fun plans for New Year’s Eve?

How’s it going this week, guys? After a restful weekend, I started work Monday on a DIY Advent calendar. IDK why but the Christmas bug has bit me extra hard this year. I will wait until after Thanksgiving to begin decorating but that doesn’t mean I’m not daydreaming about Christmas decor. All the holiday stuff out in stores already is just so darn cute! I’ve also been sneaking in as many episodes of Gilmore Girls as humanly possible in preparation for their triumphant return on Netflix. (I am basically this meme.) Hope you all are well, and here are a few click-worthy links I think you should check out…
