Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend J What did you do? Finish Christmas shopping? Relax? Hang out with family? We did a little of each. Friday night was my company holiday party. It was at a local hotel and it was a really nice gathering. Food, friends, and door prizes. Sadly we didn’t win any, but it was still fun. Saturday I went and got a haircut. This was the last one I’ll have from the amazing Erika L She is packing up her shop and leaving the country for whatever amazing adventures she can find! So brave. So I got my last haircut in before she leaves and before the holidays. Then I went and did some last minute Christmas shopping.
Meanwhile, John was having gravel delivered to our house for our back patio. He really wanted to get that layer down in case it rains anytime soon. Although according to the 10 day forecast…there is no such rain in our near future. But, none the less, now if it does rain, the patio area won’t become a mud pit. It proved to be quite the task to shovel and transport all of this gravel from the driveway to the back yard. So about half way through, I pitched in and helped J Have I mentioned how sore I am today?! Wow I’m out of shape!

We also let the puppies have their Christmas presents a little early since we won’t be able to spend the actual Christmas day with them. Lexi got a new bed, they both got fleece jackets, and new bones.

That night we went to dinner with my dad, and stayed at my parents house that night so that we could wake up and take my dad to the airport. My mom already left for Palm Springs, and my dad flew down to meet her and some more of my family. His flight was super early in the morning, so we thought it’d be easiest to just stay at their house, to save us some sleep. Although we didn’t take into account the fact that Lexi snoring would keep us up half the night…oops!
So needless to say Sunday morning we dropped my dad off at the airport, and went back home and back to bed J We ran some more errands on Sunday afternoon, and I was able to finish my casserole holder that I’ve been working on and off on for the past week. You can find the tutorial here. Although I did buttons instead of Velcro closures. And I also did the handles more like hers. It turned out pretty good for a first attempt at sewing something completely on my own! It was a gift to my friend and coworker and his wife. They love to cook J
Hope everyone else had a great weekend. Let the countdown to Christmas begin!!
