weekly photo dump - December {week two}

Happy Sunday!
Another busy week over here.  I am trying to get my Christmas shopping/shipping done.  I think this is the latest I have ever done it.  Not a fan of waiting until the last minute, LOL!  I will be at Target today with the millions of other last minute shoppers.

House update:
We are still waiting for trim, I am wondering if it is the time of year, because our contractor is a little unresponsive.  Luckily everything else is done, so I am not stressing over this piece.

From left to right:
1.  I have almost eaten and entire box of these ginger cookies from IKEA (not in one sitting, LOL!).  They remind me of the pepparkakor's (Swedish ginger cookie) my grandmother used to make.
2.  I am loving our fireplace!  And on a positive note, I love this stacked stone finish we chose so much better than the tile we had before (silver lining).
3.  Mike set up the tree this week (I was going back and forth on if I wanted to put it up), I still have not decorated it, but I love the light it gives in the morning and evening.  I am embracing minimalism, LOL!
4.  Work in the benefits world is super busy this time of year...tons of open enrollments for my clients.  A few days this week I had this for lunch (at least the are organic).  
5.  I love that these two hang out in my office while I am working...except when  our neighbors dog is loose, then the get a little crazy!
6.  This is crazy Pete after he came out of the Christmas tree.  I wasn't fast enough to snap a picture of him inside.  
7.  Christmas cards are done and ready to mail.  I am hoping they arrive before Christmas!
8.  After 4 months of sitting on lawn chairs in our construction zone...our furniture arrived on Friday night.  Boy, have I missed having couches!!!  The pups were excited too (I had to put a blanket on them right away so Sophie could get up there, until the newness wears off, then we will probably not use the blanket, LOL).
9.  This girl turned 5 on 12/15/17.  She is a crazy dog that still acts like a puppy, and loves to sit in my lap (she is 98 pounds), but I love her!

Enjoy Today!

HI Gretchen, It's such a heartwarming event to read about; so happy for you and Mike that everything is pulling together after the endless hard work. I'm sure it looks beautiful - to infinity!!! Especially your feelings about having "couches" back! It appears ya'll feeling that way!
I talked with Dad again and he told me that Christmas at Tim's was something he looked forward to; Very happy that it will be a fine holiday! I don't have your address other than "The Woodlands" if there are specifics, I could complete the address on the card...even though you won't be home to see it! (Minor in comparison to be here!).
Love to you and Mike, and elated that your lives are returning to comfort and familiarity. Sue xo

Thenutritionsclinic The reality is that a fats camp is by no means lots of amusing, specifically due to the fact you will the camp for one purpose: you are fats and you need to loose weight. It really is why aim is in the direction of a exact weight loss agenda otherwise plans to go along with your requirements, which also regulates an effective diet for you. Fats camps are a brief restore, which could positioned your life in the right tune, however in truth the idea is to offer the campers the equipment they need for after they return domestic.

Or sit atop the highest point of, breathe in the fresh mountain air and contemplate the sheer majesty of the shimmering peaks that languish majestically before you. Whatever your own heaven, we know the inclination.
