My So-Called Instagram Life

Just when I thought my life was going to be calm for a while, work started getting crazy.  I have some important meetings coming up this week, and we are hosting Thanksgiving the next, so things are getting a little hectic.  I might not be able to post as often as I want, but know that I am still reading your posts, even if I don't get a chance to comment.  Here are some highlights from my past week. 

Petunia, being her adorable self.

It is finally cold outside (which will inevitably lose its charm in three to five weeks, or as soon as Christmas is over).  It was time to whip up my first batch of matzo ball soup of the season.  

If you were a kid in the 80's, you probably recognize this logo.  My husband found these in an old toy.  Do you remember when Eveready was a really popular battery brand?

My newest Essie purchase, a pretty soft pink color.

Playing around with Thanksgiving decor.

I saw him at the store and couldn't resist.  Yeah, I know we haven't even made it through Thanksgiving yet, but I was excited.

Justin's peanut butter is my absolute favorite.  These totally rocked.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Petunia is such a cutie pie :-) And I'm totally with you on the xmas decorations, I bought some new stuff at the end of October :-)

And milk chocolate peanut butter cups, what does that taste like, cause we don't have stuff like that over here and at first sight it looks :-s

have a great week!

Petunia is adorable :)
I agree with you on the cold; I was all xcited for it, but once it really hits I'm going to be over it reallllly fast.

I love the Rudolph decoration! For some reason, they had a ton of Rudolph stuff at the gift shop in the American History museum. I was so tempted to buy everything there and make this year a Rudolph-themed Christmas!

I love Justin's peanut butter too!

I can so relate about work. Right with the holidays approaching work has become totally crazy (and it looks like it will be that way for the next 2-3 weeks) and I really need a break.
