ho ho ho.

Just got back from Christmas in Nebraska...We were in a full out blizzard for 2 days and it was kinda fun to be bunkered down in the Little House. Why can't the holidays last longer? Sigh...

my wedding gift to simpson and brian.

simpson and brian.

i was able to spend an amazing weekend in Texas a few weekends ago to celebrate Simpson's wedding! It truly made me miss Texas...we were in the beautiful hill country in the historic town of Fredericksburg. Peach trees, cactuses, 60 degrees...amazing.
We stayed in an original homestead that was built in 1883...it was right off the pages of Little House on the Prairie. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and it was a fantanstic weekend. Above is the Save the Date I designed for the wedding!

..i probably hadn't seen this movie in 10 years until I watched it today. It is wonderful. Watch it..again.



..spent thanksgiving in alabama with my dad's family! In true southern style, we ate canned cranberry sauce (a hyslop family tradition..along with true classy array of other yummy things thanks to Fiona) and went to the Jack Daniels distillery! hee hee.
It was a great relaxing break.
p.s. I watched the entire Band of Brothers series. I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it.


ok, i am seriously seriously considering getting a puppy when the snow lifts this next spring. It would most definitely be a french bulldog (my dream is to have a st. bernard, but i will wait till i have a house that can handle one)..start small, right? it would be named..
