Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! The Bengals played last night, so we watched the game! Ho, ho, ho!

I made mushroom lasagna for dinner.

Mer made a kale salad to go with it!

Unfortunately I woke up with a cold this morning. I was able to go to Mom and Dad's for awhile this morning for breakfast and presents, wearing a mask, but I ended up feeling too sick to attend Christmas dinner. Wah!! At least I had this handsome boy to snuggle with. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Glitter Crimes

Our friend Molly lives in Raleigh, and she is in a band called Glitter Crimes. They played their first gig tonight, at The Night Rider in downtown Raleigh. Amy, Lauren and I hatched a plan to fly to Raleigh and surprise Molly at her show! We wore lots of glittery sparkles. 

This is going to be the best surprise!

SURPRISE! There's Molly, our little rock star! On stage at her first gig!!!

They sounded amazing!

Here's a clip of one of my favorite of their songs, "You're The Cure"!

Our friend Amy Corinne also lives in Raleigh and joined us at the show! It was such a fun surprise and a wonderful time!

Apple Cooking Club

Tonight I hosted an apple-themed cooking club! Yumi made an appetizer of fried veggie and apple pakoras with a cilantro mint apple lime sauce. It was delightful!

I made an apple cider old fashioned recipe from Smitten Kitchen.


I also made stuffed apples!

Goat cheese on top!

Valaree made an apple and cheddar crisp salad with an apple cider vinaigrette dressing.


Summer made an apple and cheddar lasagna with spinach and ricotta.

This was so delicious!

We ended the evening with an apple cake made by Heather!

It was a truly apple-icious evening.

Honey for the Heart

Tonight was the Honey for the Heart parade on Court Street before Halloween Block Party! This is one of the most Athens events of all time!


Short video of the parade.

Me and Emily!

Drinks on the Union patio after the parade.

Lisa had a Mardi Gras party on the porch at the Standard and we stopped by there for awhile to throw out beads! I love Halloween.

Jasper's Halloween Hike

Jasper loves Halloween, so for his birthday this year, Vana and Joe hosted a Halloween Hike at their house! I love Halloween too, so I was excited to put on a bunch of Halloweeny stuff.

We had different stations set up through the woods for the kids to visit on their hike. I waited at my station with this Jack O'Lantern balloon. 

My station activity was monster truck temporary tattoos!

Woo! Tattoos for everyone!

Bodie, Moss and Kristin!

Princess Peach!


Kayla and me!

Foxy mama, foxy baby, and a super creepy clown.

Happy Halloween Birthday to Jasper!
