one//Still loving soup, although our weather is heating up just a bit. I tweaked Honey We’re Healthy’s recipe for lentil soup, and we’ve been eating it for a week.
two//We have gotten two sweet housewarming gifts from our friends this week – a beautiful orchid and a pretty candle. I love them both!
three//Tonight we’re attending a fun date night at our church with several other couples from our class called “A Black and White Affair.” Everyone is wearing black and/or white. This means a pretty basic cocktail dress for me, but Austin decided to wear his tux – any excuse :)
four//Some Thanksgiving cooking is on the agenda this weekend, and I can’t wait to get started. A much needed hair appointment is the only other thing I have planned. I’d also love to tackle getting our Christmas cards addressed, some online Christmas shopping, and getting a few thank you notes out the door. For Thanksgiving next week, I’m contributing my favorite cranberry relish, this bourbon chocolate pecan pie, corn casserole, and jezebel sauce. I kind of can’t believe Thanksgiving is already here! Cranberry relish is my favorite of all the Thanksgiving foods – what is yours?!
five//Austin and I have a tradition of getting one Christmas ornament each year to represent something special about that year. In 2011, the year we got married, it was a wedding cake. In 2012, the first year we had season tickets to A&M games, it was an Aggie ornament. In 2013, we took a wonderful trip to Charleston, so we got a pineapple. All three ornaments have been Old World Christmas so far, but this year we might just have to step out of the Old World Christmas box and get this precious house ornament from this Etsy shop. I have had it pinned for a long time, and this is the perfect year for it!
Happy Friday – stay warm!
