Brrr....

On Thursday we pulled into the SAV, got out the car and thought we were going to suffocate.  It was in the 80's and we realized we forgot to pack our shorts and flip flops.  Didn't get that memo!

This morning we woke up in the SAV and it was decent....then we drove 4 hours....as we pulled into our neighborhood it started raining and when we got out of the car....it was cold rain!!!  It never got out of the 40's today, it rained, cold rain all day long and was windy.  Thanksgiving is over...and winter is here!

Hubs and I have been curled up on the couch under a blanket (well I have the blanket) watching netflix wishing our fireplace was working---or we were back sitting in front of a wood burning fire.  Our fireplace is gas and something is wrong with the switch.  It's probably a good thing--that gas fire place can be quite expensive!

So day one of trying to be back in the swing of things didn't work too well thanks to the weather.  Suitcases are still downstairs, we warmed up some of my Grandma Billie's Brunswick stew that my mom sent us home with and I just finished off a piece of pumpkin nut bread with a big glass of milk.  Guess I'm going to have to go to the grocery store soon and buy real groceries.  The stew and the turkey and the pumpkin bread my mom sent us home with isn't going to last forever...well she did send us home with a good stash of gift cards....that should last us until it warms up a little bit right?

And that's my rambling of this cold Monday.....

And it's still Cyber Monday.  Have you checked out the Cyber Monday Sale yet?  It's still going on till midnight tonight.  All items in the shop are 15% off.

Speaking of Cyber Monday---did you partake?  I did get a few things accomplished from my spot bundled up on the couch---got our Christmas cards ordered and got a present ordered.  I love handmade things and love supporting handmade shops!

And have you checked out day one of Cotton Lane's giveaways?  You should---it's all pretty stuff and lots of chances to win (what better way to help out your Christmas shopping!?)  And you should check out her shop too---it's way too cute!

My Christmas Collection is all complete--but not the pictures.  Tried to take the pictures tonight inside, thanks to the rain, but the lighting just wasn't right....so we'll have to wait till I can get outside....but for a sneak peak...here's a couple of the inside pics....



And that's all for now in this chilly ATL!
