playing catch up

I thought I would do a little catch up post since, ahem, I missed the whole month of November. So here goes:

-I did, indeed, finish my halloween costume but never took the time to take some good photos of it. I had two little halloween parties I went to & both I was rushed to get out the door & was just lazy. The photo above is my finished mask! (I want to make a million more & will do a how-to post next time!) 

- We had our first big snowfall of the season before halloween, I woke up one morning to this! It was stunning! Of course, it mostly melted within the next few days but I enjoyed it while it lasted.

- I have been in hibernation mode since the beginning of November but with Christmas on the way I am getting some of my creativity & energy back!

- & that pretty much brings us to Thanksgiving. We stayed in Colorado this year & I hosted a little dinner with friends. I made all of our favorites - twice baked potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, veggies galore, roasted brussel sprouts.... - it was so delicious that I forgot to take any photos! I felt so accomplished that I was able to do it all myself. My mom always made it seem so effortless (umm, it's not) but I am glad she taught me how to do it all!

I have put up most of our Christmas decorations & plan to post some photos soon! I am so ready to start some of our new/old Christmas traditions as our own little family this year, since it will just be us again, like last year. I can't believe it has almost been one whole year living in Colorado!! There are so many fun things on the horizon! Happy Monday! xo. Meghan

  1. Oh, the mask turned out just lovely! I'm sure the costume looked fantastic.

    Gosh, that snow!! We've been having unseasonably warm weather here. It feels like springtime rather than Christmas.

  2. You have such cute style!!! Also, I love that mask, oh my god. I really do hope you do a tutorial soon!!! :D

    Also, hibernation, mmmm!

  3. i would probably be in hibernation mode too if i had such a cozy looking bedroom!

  4. It looks like a winter wonderland! I miss that face!
