Anyone else go into a panic today when they realized how close we are getting to Christmas?? The Red Head and I took off the whole week of the holidays for travel so that means we have holiday celebrations in MN starting mid-next week. Gulp! Time to kick the holiday spiriting into overdrive. We’re talking wrapping presents, making desserts, figuring out what we are wearing, trying not to drive each other crazy and blasting the holiday music from here on out. I’ve got one thing off my list, snagged this gem for a holiday show next Friday. Add some black tights and boots and we are in business. See you at the finish line, friends!

A week of Thanksgiving celebrations began last night at the Erickson abode and between all the festivities, this is the only photo I took! So here it is, a half-set table for your viewing pleasure. The menu included ham, potatoes, corn, green beans, shrimp, marinated cheese, gravy, pumpkin pie and rolls. Clearly, we did not go hungry. Round two coming up in just a few short days! Hope you have a great one!

It could be the sudden drop in temperatures, the already full calendar or the displays at Target but I’ve caught the holiday spirit a little early this year. Christmas tunes have been played, wishlists are growing, holiday recipes are stacking up, and if I buy one more thing to ‘wear for the holidays’ I will have to cut up my credit card. I’m holding off on decorating for a couple more weeks, hopefully, but until then I am in CLEANING mode. Dark corners of our basement have been sorted, purged, donated and cleaned. Feels good knowing that the garland and trees will be cluttering up the space soon (!!). And, of course, there will be glitter on the floor to accompany them.

A birthday weekend seems like a good excuse for some funfetti cake batter dip, no? Definitely a healthier choice than my go-to birthday popcorn!

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Big plans ahead? Or do you pretend this day doesn’t exist? The Red Head and I have an exciting evening of ‘expecting multiples’ class and probably dinner on the go. I’ll take it! V-Day has never been my fave. Let’s just wish each other a ‘Happy Wednesday’ instead, yeah?

Bags are packed, presents are wrapped, desserts are assembled, appetizers are ready, halls are decked… let’s do this, Christmas! I’m signing off until 2018 but have a wonderful and safe holiday, friends!

Are you ready for all the festivities to come in the days ahead? The to-do list is feeling a little overwhelming but the Red Head and I are taking some time tonight to bell ring for the Salvation Army! The forecast is calling for snow so I think hot chocolate will be a necessity. Make mine a double!

Pals, can you believe how quickly December is flying by? I told my spin class earlier this week that there were only one more Monday between us and Christmas and got some serious flack. The denial was real! I’m leaning into the holiday spirit while I can and going to a holiday improv show tonight. I’ve got this red dress and dinner reservations waiting so I’ll see you on Sunday. Happy mid-December!

We’ve reached the time of year where I feel the need to post a tree photo as often as possible. It just feels right and I refuse to fight it. Do your weekend plans involve a Christmas tree? The only Christmas tree I’m worrying about this weekend is a gingerbread one. I’m building a gingerbread house with some cousins! I’ll likely eat more candy than help but it will be a blast nonetheless. Whatever you’re up to, have a great time, friends!

While note nearly this idyllic, the Red Head and I saw no less than 25 cars with trees strapped to the roof this weekend in our outs and abouts. As they say, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
