Outside my window: the wind is blowing through the trees, making the tarp on our patio dance in the breeze (hey that rhymed). It’s been cold lately and the wind hasn’t been helping at all.
This weekend we: mostly spent catching up from our week out of town. Laundry, errands and a lot of meals on paper plates. We also spent some time catching up on our DVR which is filled to the brim with fun shows we missed.
We also: said hello to a special visitor, Godwin who came to spend time with MM and BB before Christmas. He’s a little mischevious but overall, fairly well behaved so I don’t mind his presence. He’s made fast friends with Ferb and they’ve been having lots of slumber party fun together.
This morning we found him trying on MM’s new socks which I guess I forgot to put away before we went to bed last night.
I am reading: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott on my Kindle and I’m about halfway through it. I got a lot more time with it over our vacation since I didn’t bring any hard copy books and devoted my time to e-reading. I’m planning to avoid picking up any other books until I finish.
I have written: about 43,000 words which is both good and bad. I’m impressed that I made it this far but with only 2 days left until NaNoWriMo is over I’m definitely feeling the pressure and have no idea if I’ll finish on time.

- I do not usually have a lot of luck baking chicken breasts but I followed the simple roasting steps at Our Best Bites the other week and our chicken came out moist, delicious and perfectly cooked in exactly the number of minutes her recipe called for. It is now my go to chicken recipe!
- I really want to make this simple photo wreath at Katydid and Kid – doesn’t it look cute and oh so easy?
- Dan made me these cinnamon rolls (recipe from Savory Sweet Life) this weekend. They were a bit denser than what you’d find in a can, but I think they were more filling. He improvised on the frosting part as we didn’t have any cream cheese btw.
- Got any old 3 1/2″ disks lying around? Frugal Family Fun Blog has a super easy craft idea for the men in your life! (this post is actually pretty old but if I can track down some old floppy disks, I’ll be making some as Christmas presents).
One last picture to share before I go:here’s a bonus shot from our vacation, little BB with her meme!
Isn’t that coat and hat adorable? Dan’s parents got them for her and we are just swooning every time we see her in them!
