Christmas Printables

The sun is coming out and the temperature is rising a little here in Nashville, so I thought I would share something bright and cute with you : )

I posted some fun [free] Thanksgiving printables a few weeks ago and I thought I could share a few more that are Christmas themed! Here are some really great [free] printable Christmas tags and the sites they come from. You can use these for cut out tags for presents or gift bags, use them as stickers, or even print them and incorporate them into your own tag design. Have fun with these!

Semi Wordless Wednesday

Shew, I just can't get going this week. I am addicted to the holidays time off! I really enjoy being home and able to live and function on my own time...but who doesn't, right?

And, um, hello--where did November go? I feel like I woke up today and it was gone. Out the window! I can't believe it's almost 2012!
via
Do you ever get to feeling unsatisfied or under challenged? I feel like that a lot lately. I revised my Christmas list...I wish for the courage to change that! Hopefully Santa will come through for me this year. Keep your fingers crossed : )

I want more breath taking moments!

Thanksgiving Weekend!

Holy Cow! Yesterday was such a looong day...getting back into the swing of things after a holiday weekend is hard stuff! This past weekend was full of some really great food, interesting memories and lots of laughs. How was yours?

It was great only having to work half of the day on Wednesday. We had a yummy lunch at work and then I was outta there! I celebrated Thanksgiving & spent the weekend with Ryan's family.
Lunch/dessert at work!
Dinner at Ryan's grandma's house. Gobble gobble!
Other than the turkey, our weekend was filled with lots of amazing recipes! We tried out a few from Southern Living, including red velvet cupcakes with brown butter cream cheese icing/white chocolate amaretto icing. Can you say Mmmmm? They were amazing! We made a pumpkin sweet roll and got to use the left over brown butter icing on it. Another winner! If you can get your hands on the current Christmas edition of Southern Living, GET IT!
Helping with the amazing cupcakes!
The major sweet roll before it cooked, waiting for the dough to rise :)
The extra dough...regular cinnamon roll style!
We also got together with our friends for a Friendsgiving. More food, more laughs and more wine! Obviously an equation for a good time ; )
Ryan & Mike
Maria and
The ladies of the family also spent some time crafting while the boys were away at an auto show. It was so fun doing this with the girls...plus I have TWO pretty new wreaths!
 
 
The final product...it took forever, but it's worth it!
I also have an adorable burlap wreath that Ryan's sister in law made me!
Although it was REALLY warm this past weekend (considering the fact that it was the week of Thanksgiving) we still had a fire on Sunday night. It was dreary and cold that day, so it was so nice! I can't get enough of it around this time of year.
Our drink of choice over the weekend.
Can you tell I come from KY? ;)
Lastly, on Sunday night, we decorated the Christmas tree at Ryan's parent's house. We aren't putting a tree or decorations up this year due to our move, so we're living vicariously through them!
Christmas Card?

 It was fun seeing everyone, but I sure am happy to be back home!

Semi Wordless Wednesday

Are you ready for turkey? And good times? And your family? I can't wait to get my half day over with at work so I can relax and see some of my favorite people!!

In case you couldn't tell...I'm excited about good food, hot drinks, a warm fire, cuddles in front of the fire, smores, watching my favorite after-thanksgiving movie, catching up on reading and getting past all of this yucky, rainy weather!
