dec. 20 - jan. 5

that's how long fiona is home for winter break.

that's 17 days.

we are only on day 9.

there has been lots of yelling, crying, sword fighting (not the fun kind) and drinking.

this is when being rich must be super awesome.

bc you can sort of go anywhere...










although i'm not gonna lie.

we would more than likely be here right now...

where would you go?

it's friday, it's almost christmas and shit is getting done.

 yesterday i cleaned and organized my linen closet.

 i got rid of tons of old blankets, linens, decorative pillow covers etc..

i couldn't deal anymore with the mess.

and i never used any of it.

so to goodwill it goes.

this is the after...

that shit is organized!

this weekend i intend to sort out fiona's old toys and books that she has outgrown and take those to goodwill too.

christmas is coming and i cannot be a hoarder!


my domestic tendencies are in overdrive.

the bar is stocked...



this shit is in the oven right now..




there are crafty things afoot...


mini trees and christmas lights in jars...




if it's good enough for my girlfriend, it's good enough for me:


we are getting our tree tomorrow and i intend to decorate the balls out of EVERYTHING!!!

just wait.

it's gonna rule your face off.

nigella cake recipe here.

(you know you're going to make it)
