Hi! How was your Thanksgiving? Are you still eating turkey and all the fixings?
We had a fantastic time in Santa Fe with Travis’ family. Cecilia was glued to her Nana and her Nana’s dog. We enjoyed some cold weather, lots of family time and a top-notch meal.
One of my contributions to the big meal was the pie you see above. It’s this brown butter pecan pie with espresso dates from Food & Wine. It was sooooooo crazy good and I highly recommend making it.
Cecilia was also great traveling this trip. We had a minor meltdown before we got on the plane to head to Santa Fe, but it was really nothing. On the way home she was perfect.
One thing that wasn’t perfect was our arrival home because we got in and there was a puddle of rain water in our dining room 🙁 Now to figure out how it got in and how to fix it. Ugh.
For those of you who celebrate Christmas – are your decorations up? I spent all day decorating yesterday and am loving my holiday home! Now we just need our Christmas tree!
Part of the decorations this year was a DIY advent calendar for Cecilia. I put it up yesterday and love it! Check it out on Instagram.
Let’s talk Gilmore Girls! I think it was solid, but I’m re-watching it to make my final decision. I’ll recap here soon. In the meantime, what did you think of it? How about the ending?
It’s been cold and rainy here since we got home, so I made this broccoli cheddar soup for dinner last night and all was right in the world. Cecilia gobbled it up, too!
Have a wonderful week!
