Lately, our weekend tradition includes going to the gym for a little bit, and then having breakfast together- in our workout clothes like typical Austin people, except we actually just came from the gym. This weekend, there weren’t any parking spots near the bagel place, so we decided to make some breakfast at home instead. We went with our specialty- biscuits. I got a super cool hexagon shaped cutter for Christmas that I was excited to try, and I love the cute little biscuits it made!
The weather this weekend was top notch. The first couple days of nice weather after the cold and dreary should be a holiday. We spent much time running around doing errands and visiting, but we also spent quite a bit of time outside doing some sprucing up. All the 75 and sunny had me thinking it was time to go get some more flowers, but alas, who knows what the sky will do next week.
The majority of the weekend was spent finishing a large order, but we still managed to have one of those simple, wonderful weekends. It was rainy, grey, and almost freezing- so perfect movie watching weather. Not too many pictures, but lots of time together. One of my favorite parts of the weekend was our gym and bagel date.
1. Pretty gingerbread horses. 2. How I want to be all the time. 3. Make your own beeswax candles for a useful present. 4. Caramel popcorn reminds me of those big Christmas popcorn tins. 5. And a gingerbread farm, because I love gingerbread.
Our leaf situation is almost under control over here. Those last couple just keep holding on. We made a boatload of chicken soup last night, so this weekend we will probably be rounding up the last of the leaves, watching movies, writing Christmas cards, and eating soup. Have a good one!
1. I generally like my fudge classic with walnuts, but this peanut butter chocolate fudge looks cute with the little swirl of chocolate on top. 2. Mini herb wreaths! 3. Now that I’ve conquered hats, its time to move on to mittens. 4. Salt dough ornaments have a cousin? 5. I don’t think I could ever eat these, but they look like a Christmas party.
What are you up to this December weekend? I have some animals to sew, a garden to protect from bugs, and we still have all the leaves in the world to rake. We’re tempted to get one of those extra large holiday bags that you fill with leaves. Hope you have a merry one!
1. Oh fresh biscuits. How to make perfect buttermilk biscuits. 2. Let’s wrap all the presents in plaid flannel. 3. Different ways to spice up your hot chocolate. 4. A pretty winter wreath. 5. A good cookie for turkey day- chewy pumpkin chocolate chip.
What are you up to this weekend? Is it acceptable decorating time yet? We might put up a strand or two of lights outside. Nothing overly holiday themed yet, but just a little dose of festivity. And as a functional bonus, it will add a little more light for the early evenings. Wishing you all a cozy weekend.
