Home Soon Home...

So I have left my beloved Idaho once more to move to Utah.


This time I will be calling Salt Lake City home ~that is as soon as I can find an apartment to rent. Right now SLC is where I work and I am staying with friends back in Utah County. I finally got that HR job I have been planning on getting for the last three or so years ~how did that happen? Anyways the company is Westech ~an engineering firm which I won't be discussing here because you never blog about work. I think this is going to be a good thing ~I just need to get into the swing of it.

perfection and tears...

This week just like everyone else I know I have been trying to get a million things done in time for the holiday.
The good news ~my brownies turned out perfectly even though I was talking very animatedly on the phone while measuring ~not always a good idea
The bad news ~the copy shop ruined a present I was working on and i cried on the way home ~i was so close to pulling off Christmas this year ~so I am going to have to either do a complete redo or a start over ~have been busy subbing and haven't had time to decide.
This next week will be better ~I am making tapioca which is good juju to ensure it.

Advent?

How in heavens name did it get to be so late in the month already? Well Christmas is just getting pulled out of the boxes and that includes Advent. I love advent I love each and every day watching the count down to the last & best part of the year.
When I was growing up we had the best advent calender ever ~each and every day one of Santa's elves would leave a note in the calendar for us, each day we did a little something dictated by the man himself to get ready for the 25th. Here is the photo of my very own "Pretty Lady's" advent, and since I am the only child home I have been making up what the elf has been saying the last couple of days ~tonight it said "dinner & a movie" I had PF Changs and The Holiday ~all oh so lovely.


I love advent so much though that I don't just do one calendar. ~Last year I stitched up this lovely little idea from Bareroots.


This year I made envelope advents and sent them off to Swell & Roo both of whom have given them rave reviews ~one of which included premature opening.
I hope everyone has a lovely time celebrating this holiday ~I will show you more of my celebration later~
