Merry Monday, Friends!
A belated Happy Thanksgiving to any American friends who may be checking in.
What did you get up to over the weekend? I did so many of my favorite things it was actually a bit overwhelming. In a good way, of course. Really, in the best kind of way.
I finished a book, ate leftovers, had lovely holiday drinks from Starbucks, shopped till I dropped at Super Target, ate cookies for breakfast (thanks V.T), played with Liesl, wore mascara, made crafts, baked a cake, ate Chinese food and drank beer, shopped online, watched Elf, painted my nails, did some knitting, ate French fries and drank root beer, washed my bedding, anddddd here it comes … had an amazing second (American) Thanksgiving dinner.
It was so wonderful. I made Brussels Sprouts Gratin and a Spiced Applesauce Cake (check back later for recipes). There were amazing potatoes, carrots, stuffing, and salads too. We also had a deep fried turkey. Say what? Yeah … DEEP FRIED! O. M. G. It was delicious and not at all gross (like it sounds). Really, it was the best. Ever.

I think it’d be hard to ask for a whole lot more out of one weekend.
PS – We’ve now passed the 1-month mark to Christmas. I will save the Holiday posts until December 1. But, you’ve been warned. Prepare yourself for an onslaught of excited Christmas posting! Also, let me know if you have any fun Holiday post ideas .. I love sharing
