Happy Monday, friends! Linking up with Biana and Meghan again today. 

This little sickie finally had his 9-month doctor's appointment on Friday, which we coupled with the second round of his flu shot. He's had a horrible cough, poor thing, so we just checked it all out while we were there. He did great, and was honestly more upset about having to get completely naked and be weighed. {Frankly, I probably would be, too! It's cold!} 

When we got home, he didn't want to do anything but cuddle, so that we did. He slept for a full hour at 5 p.m., and then went to sleep for the night at 7 p.m. {and slept until 6:45 a.m.}. He was worn out. Walker never sleeps on me like this anymore, so I had to take the snuggles where I could get them! 

Brandon got home about 7 p.m., so I made him some chili and we just caught up after him being away for six days. 

We had to get some financial documents in order, so we were up and at 'em on Saturday to get to the guy's office. Walker did great while we signed a bunch of papers for nearly two hours; I was so proud. {You know you're officially old when...} 

After we got that taken care of, we grabbed lunch at Pei Wei; cleaned and did laundry; went to the grocery store; watched Upset Saturday college football; and then decided to put up the Christmas tree! I know it's not even Thanksgiving, but the weather called for it. And, frankly, it takes so much time to get everything down from the attic, put it all up and then get everything stored back in the I just figured, "Why not?" I am loving having the extra time to enjoy it this year.

We ended the evening with a yummy supper from my grandmother's cookbook and turned in around 9 p.m. Party animals! 

We went to the early service at church, and then came home to have lunch. We had grand plans to get out and be productive, but the fire, sweatpants and hot tea were calling our names. Light snow was forecasted, and us Texans just don't do well with that! So, I plopped myself down in my favorite little spot to get warm while Walker napped. 

While the Little Man napped, we completely finished our Christmas shopping online - hooray for not stepping ONE FOOT in a store this year for Christmas gifts! - and were lazy bums on the couch. It was wonderful! 

I only have a three-day workweek this week and am off for 11 glorious days beginning Wednesday afternoon! Hallelujah! Hope y'all have a wonderful week! 



  1. Tree looks gorgeous! I can't wait to put ours up!

  2. I usually don't put my Christmas stuff up until after Thanksgiving, but for some reason I want mine up early this year too!

  3. I'm still so in love with your tree and that some of your presents are wrapped!! Your saturday was really productive - I need one of those in my life LOL! Hope you have a great Monday!

  4. Love that you have your tree up! We almost put ours up this weekend, but we will definitely be doing it next weekend. Yay for baby snuggles and cozying up to the fireplace. Sounds like the perfect weekend!

  5. Your Christmas Tree is beautiful!! I put mine up this weekend as well. I kinda like having it up early, I can look at it longer since this holiday season is shorter.

  6. I know this is a random comment - but you have the most beautiful eyebrows - WOW. Do you get them threaded? Sorry - I know it's random, I am forever in war with mine - *sighs*

    Your son is so cute - and who would like having to completely strip down and be weighed? Not I!

    And yay for you - we are also going to be doing the online xmas shopping!!! I hate going to the stores.
    We just need to sit down and gitter dun - you know?

  7. Your tree looks beautiful! It was just the justification I needed to get ours out and it will be going up this weekend :) I cannot wait!
