Gearing Up!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  I had a grand ol' time celebrating in Florida with Ryan and my in-laws.  I brought my camera along but failed to take pictures (don't you hate when you do that?!).  I wish I could share a photo or two with you to show you how beautiful Sanibel Island was, but alas, you will have to use your imagination.  Imagine beautiful sunny days and blue ocean. It was amazing!

I have to say, now that it's officially okay to pump the Christmas music and deck out our apartment in Christmas decor, I've done just that!  I just love this time of year.  Our apartment is slowly but surely being transformed into a Christmas wonderland.

A new addition this year is the above "God Jul" sign (Merry Christmas in Swedish).  I hung it up in our living room and love taking a gander every now and then.  

And I am still trying to figure out what to do with all this awesome "God Jul" ribbon my mom sent me, any ideas?

Besides Christmas, I'm also gearing up for the 2012 Scandinavian Christmas series starting December 13!  There are a few new guest bloggers this year along with some bloggers who have participated in years past.  It is going to be great, don't miss out!

And one last bit of news here, RYAN GOT A JOB!!!!!!! WOO! We are quite excited if you can't already tell. :)  Good thing I was relishing our mornings together because now Ryan is out the door by 8:00 AM.  Which leaves me with a few hours to clean and run errands craft and drink copious amounts of coffee every morning.  With the craft fair being only 2 weeks away (yelp!) I definitely can use the time!

Happy Tuesday!

    First thing first! Congratulations Ryan! I am so happy the job hunting is behind and a bright future ahead!

    If I were there I would lend you both my hands to help prepare for the show. I do hope you will remember to take a few pix before you haul it all to the show. And share them of course!!

    Our Scanfaire is tomorrow and I am all set to go!!! Very excited.
