O.k. – 10 more days until break!  I actually got a lot accomplished this weekend. I’m linking up today with My Glittery Heart, Lindsay’s Sweet World, and The Sirois Family.  Check out the other posts here.

I scheduled my Kroger pick up for Friday right after school and it was a semi-disaster.  I had to go back three times before I could get my groceries – long and boring story.  I squeezed in a quick drink at Mojito with a co-worker, and also visited my new Matilda Jane trunk keeper.  If you are local to Louisville and need one, let me know in the comments.  I ordered a black pair of fin pants.  

In keeping with my trying to squeeze in some husband time in the midst of my current situation with my mom living with me and my dad in the hospital, hub and I stopped at this place on our way to visit at the hospital and bring my mom home.  It is on Bardstown Road and has a nice atmosphere.  We should have ordered the fried chicken which they are most known for, but we ordered sloppy joe, spoon bread, and greens to split.  


In Germany, I discovered this refreshing grapefruit beer.  It sounds weird, but it is really good.  

Look at this cozy private nook.  Joanne, you might like this!  Check out her blog at if you want to fall in love with England!  

Saturday morning I practiced a little hygge with my coffee and candle.  I love mornings when the dog and I are the only ones moving.  

O.k., you have got to buy this and add your own bourbon.  It is so good.  My friend K and I love this.  I need to make time to see her this break!  

I bought this champagne flavored cotton candy and I’m going to put it in my champagne!  It’s a thing!  How fancy, right?  Maybe I will do this on Christmas Eve. 

It was early Saturday morning and my mom and I went to Target and Dollar Tree before the crowds hit.  It was bliss.  

This is my favorite Christmas decoration.  I have all of our cards framed from over the years.  

Looks at these guys!  

We finally put the tree up!  

Egg nog!  

This boy is allowed to sleep with us.  

Sunday morning was the first coffee with the tree up.  I did some meal prep for the week, my mom and I went to Costco, we went to the hospital.  I left my mom there while I did lunch for my boys, they had a friend over, I went back to the hospital with treats for my parents, took friend home, then made dinner.  Whew!  

How was your weekend?  I can’t wait to read about it if you blog.  If you don’t leave me a comment!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Gosh I love that restaurant y’all ate at on Friday – so cozy! We had a busy weekend but got quite a bit accomplished as far as wrapping all the presents we had so far and packaging things that need to be shipped. I had a yummy drink on Saturday night – I can’t remember what it was called but it had pecan whiskey in it. I’m not an egg nog fan but that one looks pretty good. The days will fly by and before you know it break will be here! Yay!!


    1. Isn’t it? I have tried pecan whiskey and I’m not a fan of pecans but it was good and it tasted like fall! I love to create cocktails so maybe I will use that in one. Glad you were productive!


  2. Your Saturday morning sounds like perfection. That cotton candy in champagne sounds like it will be delicious! I wish I had some!


  3. Your house and tree look beautiful, so glad you did it! I like the Christmas card display too. Sunday afternoon a friend brought her puppy over to play with mine, they’re 6 months apart, mine is a boy terrier and she has a girl golden retriever. It’s hilarious to watch them together! I made us chai lattes in the kuerig and splashed in a little rumchatta since it was a little chilly outside, it was perfect.


  4. Yikes sorry about Kroger but happy you beat the crowds at Target and Dollar Tree. Love the Olan Mills photo of you! I love your little nook! Such a cozy place to enjoy a meal! Your tree is very pretty!


  5. I LOVED the cosy nook! Plus the colour on the walls -card room green! Lots of cosy images on your post – it is good to hear that you are getting some respite. Thank you so much for the shout out by the way! P.S. what is a trunk keeper and P.P.S I have never tried egg nog – shame on me!!


    1. I knew you would love it! I would like to have that in my home. A trunk keeper is just the name that the Matilda Jane brand uses for the ladies who sell it.
      Try egg nog this year – can you get it there?
