Week Recap in Pictures

Happy Monday lovebugs!
It feels so good to be back :) I hope you're all having a great start to the week. I know I am....thank goodness tomorrow is my last day until the new year. {hollaaa!}

I feel like so much time has passed since I last blogged....well unless you count Friday, but I won't. ;) I figured the best way to fill you in was with pictures. So here you go-

 - We finally got our tree up and decorated last weekend. My phone doesn't do it justice. {Please take note of the angel actually touching the ceiling}
- Last night my family all piled in the car to go look at Christmas lights. Of course, we stopped by the infamous crazy house. There was actually a line to get into the neighborhood this year! 
- I like coffee to be a dessert. Which means flavored creamer, whipped cream, and cinnamon. Yum!! :)
- Always represent my Eli, even when they lose. 
- The Krispy Kreme fairy left a surprise on Saturday...yum!
- Have you ever seen a blowup snowman like this before?! He'll be featured on the next GQ spread. haha where do people find these things?!
- My favorite ornament is a grandmother mouse and a grandchild with a cup of tea and a tea bag. My grandparents gave this to me when I was little because I would always love to drink tea when we would spend the night at their house. And grandmama always used to make the best hot tea. This is usually the first ornament I will hang every I can make sure it gets the best spot. :)

I finally got all of my shopping done yesterday. We do secret santa in my family and it's fun but it's also a little stressful because I like having opinions when I go shopping. I almost had to call someone in my family for help yesterday....but I couldn't bring myself to ruin the surprise. I hope my person ends up liking what I got them.... ;) 

Ok, about to get on my soapbox for a min.
What was up with football yesterday? If you missed it, let me fill you in.

- the Packers lost their first game
- the Colts won their first game
- Tebow and the Broncos lost to the Patriots
- the Skins beat the Giants

If you didn't know, I'm a Colts fan. I know it's random, being from Virginia and all, but I came to it honest. {thanks dad} Anyway, we've gone all season without winning a single game. Not one. Until yesterday. I get that you think a win is good to boost morale, but let's be real, whose morale are you trying to boost? It's gotten to the point where I think most Colts fans want us to lose our games. I mean, we didn't spend all season sucking just to win one game and not clinch the first round draft pick....and let the Steelers clinch a playoff spot. Are you kidding me?! Ah, super frustrating. We need to lose the next 2 games because this losing season has to be good for something. That something hopefully being this guy. 
enter Andrew Luck 
guaranteed 1st pick. 
And if we don't get him, you are going to have a lot of angry Colts fans. 
Ok, end rant.

And what weekend is a real weekend without the Tobes?
his new haircut makes him look angry all the time. 
too funny!

If you haven't had a chance to read about the Epic Blogger Meet-up, you can do that here.
Be sure to let us know if you're interested so we can sign up as a team! 
Have a good one!
