Putting up Christmas

I think a lot of people put up their Christmas decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving. We usually wait until the first weekend of December, but I'm getting a bit antsy this year. I want to decorate!

What is your family's tradition?
And ever wonder when these family traditions even started?

Happy Thanksgiving

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast and a house into a home. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

Keep calm and be thankful via Pinterest

Hasselbeck potatoes

To me, this is an absolute must-try recipe:
Step-by-step instructions HERE

UPDATE: made these and they were a hit. Take my advice and cook the potatoes for a full hour prior to taking them out to add more cheese.

Hungry? Need lunch?

I would seriously recommend heading over to your nearby Safeway. They have a great deal: a sandwich, soup, and soda for only $5.49. I couldn't even finish it all! I ate half of everything and plan on having the rest tomorrow for lunch! So, two days worth of lunch for only $5.49? Great deal.

I ordered the...
Tuscan chicken sandwhich = yummy
Butternut squash soup = extra yummy

Lovely dress

I think Susan Sarandon's dress is so darn pretty! Not too crazy about her daughter, Eva Amurri's, wedding dress. I think it's because it seems a bit too simple for a wedding dress...and it's coordinated with her mother's dress.
But the lace is just so gorgeous. 
I would love to find a tailor around the Seattle area to make me something like this.
Both dresses are a Lela Rose creation.

One day...

...I'll make something like this. I need to start collecting about 200 ornaments first. And I will collect them slowly because I am not willing to pay full price for ornaments.

But I love the idea. Visit here to see the steps.

Bye bye Husky Stadium

We said goodbye to husky stadium on Saturday. The huskies played their last game in their beloved stadium against Oregon on a cold crisp Autumn day.

They took an awesome 360 picture of the entire stadium and fans. To check out the picture (you can zoom super close) go this website! I was able to find myself in the crowd!!
