Phew. This week seriously got away from me and I didn't even realize that I had yet to share a new recipe or craft before Weekend Links (which is generally my goal). I'll tell you guys something; I didn't even realize that today was Saturday until...well... it was Saturday. I have a lot of catch up work to do over the next two days. The reason behind why my week didn't feel like a real week was because myself, Sam, and Oliver didn't even get home from the beach until Monday night, then I had worked from home on Tuesday among other tasks and Wednesday was the only day that I was actually in the office for a few hours before the holiday hit. Thanksgiving at our household was as dysfunctional as usual and my two sisters and niece and nephew and I drove 2 hours to stay at the actual Thanksgiving gathering for approximately 40 minutes before high-tailing it back home. Actually, to McDonalds and Starbucks and Redbox and the Liquor Store, and then home. But, that's another story for another day.
Once we got back to the house and wiped away endless tears, eyelashes, and lipstick, we sat at the dining room table with chicken nuggets and hash browns and compared our lives to a reality show gone rogue and laughed hysterically for at least two hours telling stories to our little sister about our younger days when we were in high school and living at home. Then, we watched a Jake Gyllenhal movie for the 5th time this week and I slept on a mound of sharp Legos and spilled Cheetos for a full 3 hours before heading out the door to score some Black Friday deals with my mom. Typical week, no?
I hope your holiday was as exciting as mine was. Today, I'll be wrapping a few Christmas presents (I almost finished my entire shopping in one day. #nailedit), making Sam's favorite beef stew and a homemade loaf of bread (my first time ever, woot woot), and putting up our Christmas tree while Oliver simultaneously tries to knock it down. While I do that, you can scroll down below and check out a few of my favorite links from this week:
