{Fall?} Wait... what happened to winter?

It's quite true y'all it feels and looks like fall. No snow. No leaves. But we have sun, fairly warm weather, grass that isn't covered by snow, and a pond that isn't frozen... simply just water... after all that wanting snow...I'm actually quite content with the nice weather...although snow would be nice. It's actually very refreshing...I don't really know why.

I've been trying to look for some hard crust bread recipes. Do you know of any really good ones? I would love to have the recipe.... that is if your willing to give it up. ;)  

We've been pretty busy...you know the usual; Comers and goers at the house, parties, re-adjusting to life, Hanukkah, hunting, school. Oh, and we might be going to a New Years Eve party in Tennessee! I'm pretty excited for that...even though I'm not ready to go on another longgggg road trip...  

I absolutely loved this outfit for today... the skirt is so easy and wavy...that it feels like your almost wearing nothing (I know, kinda weird) but it's true. The green shirt went just perfectly, and the tan sweater was also easy and warm. I was really excited on how all of it just want together so nicely! I have my Mom to thank for letting me borrow the skirt.  

I'm kinda sorta in a sewing mood today....hmmm...I wonder what I should sew...I saw this really cute idea for a skirt on Pinterest...hmmm...I think i'll just have to try it out. 

Have a blessed day everyone!

-Mix and Match-

No, I actually didn't wear this outfit today....but I absolutely love it, so I thought I would just go ahead and post it. I had fun mixing and matching...and trying to see if I could get it all to flow....I think I accomplished that. What do you think?

We still haven't had any snow...but we did have 3 sunny days in a row. It's better then gray. So I was pretty thankful for that...it really boosts my day.

Tonight is the last night of Hanukkah....wow I can't believe it passed so fast. And 2013 is almost here!  This year didn't really feel that long at all....it all just flew right past me.

Beanies...I LOVE beanies! Do you? They are just so easy, stylish, and can dress up or down an outfit. 

Lats night we went to a Hanukkah party at our Fellowship. It was a lot of fun! All of the kids played cards, hide and go seek ( that didn't last long) Talked, ate lots of yummmmmmyyyy treats, met some new family's ( that was definitely the hight light of the night) Planned a girls day with 2 new girls we met, and just had a really great time.

Hope y'all have a wonderful day!

Snow...anytime today

We had the first snow today! It lasted for about 5 minutes...kinda depressing that it didn't last very long... and then after it snowed we had some wonderful rain that was not quite welcome by me...as you can tell I'm kinda really wanting snow....I guess you could say the grey and wet weather is really working on my patience. Well then, I guess God knows what spiritual- maturity- character-building I need to be working on this winter...patience. Like they say the Lord works in mysterious ways. But all the more reason for me to appreciate the snow when it's does come...so I guess it's all gonna work out...in time. :)  

I love how in winter when it's warm and toasty inside, but cold outside...you kinda get the best of both worlds in this season....when you can sit around the fire place with warm fuzzy socks on, and your cozy slippers, hot coco, popcorn, friends, wrapped in a blanket, maybe a board game or two....and laughter. Or you could go outside and make snow angles in the white frosty blanket that covers your property, go sledding, or ice skating on that beautiful sheet of glass that covers your pond. It's all so wonderful. I can't help but be thankful to the Almighty for everything beautiful that he has given us. 


Whats your favorite way to make hot coco in winter? I would love to hear about it. I like trying new flavors with my hot drinks. You know something that leaves that awesome taste in your mouth...or that other taste that tells you you probably shouldn't try that again.  Haha...Yup I know I'm in my slippers...but that's what the pleasure of winter is all about right...cozy warm-niss. Well not all the time but sometimes winter does call for slippers to be worn outdoors.

Well, I'll leave y'all on that coco note!

Polka Dotted Rain Boots...{why not?}

Go fun, go bold, go polka dotted rain boots! There easy, can get dirty, stylish (well, at least I think so) and are good for rainy gloomy gray days...duh. :P  And that's the kinda day it was, so why not put on them there rain boots? I did. :)

 I guess I was kinda tired of the same old same old...so as I said up there; I went with polka dotted rain boots! And I did a purple and gray striped shirt with a jean jacket, knitted scarf and an easy black skirt. I don't know if I always do this but sometimes I will match my clothes to the weather... kinda weird I know...I guess I am just a weird person... in a good way....I hope ;) Do you ever do that?

I made this realllllllly amazing dish for dinner tonight (not trying to brag or anything) ;) It's called Stromboli...ever heard of it? It's like a baked sandwich. It has turkey, turkey bacon, cheese and green onions in it. Sound yummy to you?

Something must had been really funny...hmmmm...at the moment I don't really remember what. :P

Well I better go. It's almost sundown and, the kitchen isn't really clean and the table needs to be set and I still need to make tomato soup and broccoli...and Sabbath starts at 5:30 yikes! See y'all later!
