Christmas Peek 2015

I just want y’all to know that I’m writing this at midnight, AFTER book club. My mom shamed me today: “You didn’t post last night, and you’re not going to post tonight either because you have book club.”

So here I am. Because I love you.

Today was one of those days where I just shake my head because I can’t imagine ONE MORE THING that Isla could possibly get into. And then she does. Just from today: dipped my makeup brushes in the toilet, stuffed her half-eaten hot dog bun into one of my mercury glass hurricanes and then blamed it on the dog, told me she wanted a new mommy because I wouldn’t change the channel, almost caught her hair on fire while climbing on my bathroom vanity while I was in the shower. And then I get out of the shower to find this:

Seriously. An entire basket of clean, folded laundry dumped so she could use the basket as a chair. Is she feral? All I can say is thank GOD for book club. We read The Nightingale, btw. AMAZING.

Speaking of amazing, I brought the new (I guess?) Trader Joe’s chocolate-peppermint cheesecake to book club and it was NOT BAD AT ALL. Their seasonal offerings are killing me. I bought a rustic apple tart as well, and the seasonal macarons. Now I just have to figure out where I can bring those to share. Also their ultra moisturizing hand cream is pretty great- this is the one in the big metal-ish tube inside a blue box, not the trio. Though the trio may be good, too… just haven’t tried it. Yet.

Since I don’t have any great food pics for you tonight, I snapped a few of our Christmas decor. It’s been so fun decorating the new house, and I like having these pics on the blog to reference next year when I have no clue what to do. Sorry, I took these at night so the lighting is not awesome.



Breakfast area/kitchen:

My sweet little birdhouse, built my my grandfather and decorated by my mom. I need to get out the glue gun and make some repairs… Isla has done a little remodeling. Just add that to her list above.

My lifeblood… favorite spot in the entire house…

That dang elf…
