When I downloaded some 300 pictures from this weekend, and started queuing up the ones for tonight’s post, I had to laugh.
Food, food, and wait, more food.
It was a very full weekend, but it definitely seems to have had a common theme, that’s for sure. I had my last vendor show of the holiday season, with my littlest helper, on Friday night, while Nick attended his school’s holiday dance. I scored this super cute ornament for our food and drink themed tree, these dishes for photos for clients, and Madeline bought this adorable soap.
Saturday we went to a craft fair and hit a local spot for lunch and cupcakes. Then Nick was off for a Boy Scout camping trip, and Madeline and I got ready for our annual Apres Thanksgiving Bloggers Feast (recap coming this week). Today, Madeline’s Christmas program at church and holiday photos with friends.
The weekend was full, but not over scheduled, and Madeline fitfully fell asleep underneath the twinkly lights of the Christmas tree.
Which is pretty much the best way to sleep.
Hope your weekend was all sorts of wonderful.
Tomorrow? A new breakfast danish recipe.

Looking for unique gift ideas for everyone on your list? Allow me to introduce you to Uncommon Goods.
I have a note stored on my phone where I keep a running list of gift ideas for friends and family. I add to it throughout the year, as inspiration strikes, so I’m not scrambling at the last minute, desperate for the perfect present. Some of our crew are harder to shop for than others, so when I scored a pretty awesome, totally unique gift for my Dad a few weeks ago at a vendor show I was doing, I was beyond stoked. Like, I felt like it totally took the pressure off of everything else. Now to just hope that he likes it…
The folks at Uncommon Goods reached out to me a few months back, inviting me to check out their gift ideas and they kindly offered to send me something of my choosing. And that’s when it began to get difficult.
I wanted to pick something that I knew we could get a lot of use out of with our regular entertaining, and I wanted it to be something that I loved, but knew I wouldn’t buy for myself.
Because there’s always a more practical need, just waiting in the wings…
And then I saw it.
The Wine Barrel Lazy Susan.
