The snow is here! Although I'm not always thrilled with snow before Thanksgiving, I'm pretty excited about it. After a very hot summer and the most amazing autumn weather we could have asked for, I'm now hoping we're blessed with a white Christmas. Nothing makes you feel more in the spirit for the holidays than a beautiful white blanket of snow on the ground. The holidays are SO close! I'm thrilled we're going into a short week, with Thanksgiving and a long weekend up ahead. And as soon as Thanksgiving is over, Christmas begins... decorating, holiday parties, watching cheesy Christmas movies. I'm thrilled for it all.
This past weekend was a good and relaxing one! Friday night, Eric and I headed into East Lansing to see Wicked! It was excellent. We absolutely loved it. Saturday was especially lazy. We made breakfast together, and I ended up watching While You Were Sleeping and falling asleep for a long nap. That night, we met up for a friend's birthday and went bowling and headed to karaoke afterwards. Sunday, we tried a new breakfast place called The Lazy Susan, which was delicious, and grabbed groceries for the week. We came home, watched Dan In Real Life, and Eric headed off to hockey as I washed the bedding and cooked beef stroganoff. I also love winter, because I'm able to bring out all of my seasonal winter favorite dishes. Individual chicken potpies, homemade chili, slow-cooker meals... yum!
I need to scour my wish list to see if anything is going on sale this weekend. I really have been wanting a pair of Hunter boots for winter, plus I need a new winter coat. I have a bunch of little things I've been holding off on purchasing too, hoping I can ask for them for Christmas. A new Fitbit band, a fancy water bottle, a new 2017 wall calendar... I'll do a little collection for the blog soon and maybe it'll spark a few good gift ideas for you guys too! Have a great week and happy preparations for Thanksgiving!
