So it begins, the countdown to Christmas. I only have one more working day and then I am on a 9 day vacation. I am looking forward to doing nothing but reading, watching TV, and maybe cleaning up my emails. I am trying out a new format this week so I would love to hear your feedback on how you like it in the comments.
I was really bad and didn’t take pictures but I went down to my hometown to celebrate my best friends Mom’s birthday. I ended up at the bottom of their driveway in my pajamas (they lived one house down from our house) when I was two and they made me an honorary member of their family ever since. She is my second Mom, she has lead by example and in turn made me a better person. Their Dad (Pop T) also helped me fix my Dad’s storm door that was broken.
I scored these awesome deer statues from Walgreens, to continue my deer theme for Christmas they were 60% off too. I got my cute deer pillow cover that I got from Jane. While headed back from the birthday party, I stopped at Michael’s and I saw this really cute magnetic bumper sticker. Of course I had to get it.
I worked on a DIY project which is actually a Christmas gift so I can’t share much but I promise to after the holiday. So here is just a sneak peak.
Seamus was such a snuggly pup this weekend. He really just wanted to be near me, on me, or my blanket. When he looks at me with that face how can I resist? I can’t!!
How was your weekend?
Linking up with Leeann from Join the Gossip and Biana from B Loved Boston.
I did some of my TWTW posts similar to this back in the day. I think I did in the kitchen/entertainment/social stuff/around the house or something like that. After two I felt boxed in by the format but it’s definitely easier for readers I think.
Can’t wait to see what you made!
I am sure I will add categories as needed but I really want it to be more focused. So I don’t drone on about errands and laundry. Haha!
I like the new format. The categories make it really accessible. That picture of Seamus over the weekend…so, so precious…and that 4th one…my goodness. Love!
I love to watch blogs evolve. So much fun!
Can’t wait to see the final DIY.
Enjoy these last few days before Christmas.
Thank you. I really want it to be more short, sweet and focused. Hope you have a great week!
Love the new format for your weekends!! Ok your scores from wallgreens are amazing – I need to stock up for next year!! Happy Monday girl! xo, Biana
I am trying to use all the sales to work on replacing some of my older ornaments and decorations. It was such a cute find. Thank you.
Oh Seamus sightings for the win! Love!
I figured you’d like that one. 😉 Having to leave him this morning when he was curled up on my blanket was so hard.
Love the bumper sticker! So true sometimes!! Jealous of your 9 day vacation. That should be the perfect time to relax and get stuff done like reading etc…I have 5 days so not terrible but I’m hoping I can fit some relaxation in with the wild child. lol
It should be wonderful. Being able to catch on my reading list, cleaning, and just relaxing should be wonderful. It has been over 10 years since I’ve had this much time off. Hope you get to fit some relaxation into it too.
I like this format! I had thought about doing something similar before, but then sometimes I feel like I dont have something for one of them and that stressed me out! Because I am a ridiculous person…
Seamus!!!!!!!!!!! He is just too stinking cute. I want to squeeze him!
And I cant wait to see your newest project! You make me feel so lazy!!
Haha!! I am sure I will add or remove if needed but it fits most weekends. I just want them more condensed and focused rather than talking about chores or things everybody does on a weekend. He was so sweet this morning all cuddled in my blanket I didn’t want to leave.
Aww it’s really me just wanted to customize a present. 😉
Love this format!! Looking forward to seeing your DIY. You are so crafty, I wish I was.
So jealous that you have 9 days off. would love that!!
Thank you. I was scrambling to find a vinyl printer but everyone wouldn’t get it done in time so it took some re-working. I am so excited in 12 years I haven’t taken more than 4 days off in a row. I really need it.

Love the new format! Those deer statues and the pillow are so cute! Seamus is the cutest seriously!
I think my Christmas theme made it’s mark. The reindeer are here to stay! Haha! Thank you, I think so too. 😉
Love the new weekending update! I’m also supremely jealous you have the next 9 days off!
Thank you. I am so excited for some time off. I really need to catch up on reading, and TV watching. Bwahaha!
Aww I love the photos of Seamus! Can’t wait to see what that DIY gift is 🙂
Thank you! He really isn’t shy with the camera! 😉
I really like the format, great idea. And love the Seamus sightings, he’s adorable.
Thank you. I like it, being more condensed. Thank you, he really is such a cutie. I got lucky with that one.

So cute – pics of Seamus. I didn’t take any pics of my weekend either but when I first read that you ended up on the bottom of their driveway in pj’s, I thought you were going to say it happened this weekend and thought you guys must have been really having some fun!
Can’t wait to see the outcome of your project/gift.
Thank you. He makes every day better. Haha! That would have made for an interesting night!

Amen to that bumper sticker!
Right?! So true!
i swear he was smiling!
Right?! It always looks like he is smiling.
kathy c. says
can’t wait to see what you made!! and with that face of seamus’, you absolutely can’t say no.
also, i am a very bad friend. your package is still sitting on my desk waiting to be sent. the one time i went after work, there were like, 30ppl in front of me. i love you, K, but damn, that was a long line so i went home! will try again on the 27th!!!!!
It has been an ordeal but hoping the finished product works! He is just too cute even when he is bad he is cute. Don’t work girl I know how crazy it’s been for you. A line that long I don’t think I would have waited either.
Seamus was sooo cute! I was just thinking of doing something like this with like “What I ate”, “What I did” lol. I love the Seamus sightings!! That’s such a cute story of how you ended up being friends with your neighbors at such a young age. That’s kind of, sort of similar to how I met a friend of mine from childhood too! Hope you have a Merry Christmas and super relaxing vacation from work!!
I think it is better when it more condensed. The posts just tend to get very long. I couldn’t imagine my life without them and I love that we have known each other so long. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
Love all of these things! Can’t wait to see what the project was!
Thank you. I am actually finishing it up now.
Bahahahah! That bumper sticker/magnet is the SHIT!
It really is the best, I know it’s from a song but it is so true!
I like the new format! Your DIY project looks really neat. Hope you had a great Christmas!
Thank you. I like it being more focused. Hope you had a great Christmas!
Ha I might have to steal the “Seamus Sighting” 😛 In other news, what’s the color of that stain? It’s so pretty!!
Haha! By all means steal away. It’s called Early American by MinWax, such a good mid-range stain.
love the new format girly! cant wait to see that diy thingy, you’re such a good gift giver 🙂 and seamus, stop being so adorable!
Aww thank you. I really like being able to give someone something they really want. He really is too cute for words, I tell him all the time. 😉
