we have brian's work xmas party tonight, so this morning i came downstairs in this dress, feeling pretty snazzy.

brian said i looked like a storm trooper.
i looked at him all dissapointed like, and he said 'well you didn't choose to wear that to look normal did you?"

earlier this year, brian and i considered buying some land in the middle of nowhere with a little house on it. it had a pond, and trees and animals and room to garden and a wooden fence.

we didn't go through with it, but this morning, i woke up wishing we did.

it's a great time to buy now - brian meares, i would make you dinner every night here.

or here

or even here

christmas time is here.

last night brian and i watched a charlie brown christmas in the kitchen while we were cooking dinner. i'm not one to watch things like that, but it was that or biggest loser...

it was so much funnier and greater than i remembered. we danced in the kitchen and laughed out loud. it was my first real christmas moment of the season.

name that look.

what would you call this 'style'?

with the traditional pieces, and the mercury lamp, and the .... everything?
ok, now do this one too

and this one

i think it's what i want out of life, but i'd like to have a name for it first.

as a pillow follow up, i made a few more things with our digital print shop.

{watch this NOT AT WORK, or around people who find OFFENSIVE things OFFENSIVE, or if you don't have an extremely IRREVERENT sense of humor. there - that's fair warning}

i shrieked when i opened the box.

diy ornaments

apparently, we're opting out of christmas this year at wayland drive. our decorations consist of a stuffed reindeer holding onto the curtain pull, and a dog stocking on the mantel (anna!).

so i'm thinking maybe this weekend i'll make some of these, and hang them from the ceiling in the kitchen. 1) dogproof. 2) catproof. 3) festive as all get out!

with 14 shopping days left...
