Can you believe how fast November zipped by?? Crazy! It's been a fun month, though. I loved having this long weekend to end it…it was so nice and relaxing (and very much needed). We played lots of games, ate lots of pie, and hung out with lots of friends. We also ordered a rug on Black Friday which I cannot waaaait to get, and saw Catching Fire! I loved it--I thought it was a lot truer to the book than the first movie (although maybe it’s just that I haven’t read the book as recently). Here are the rest of the things I did this month--well, not everything, just the things I posted on Instagram:
1. My new boots with red zippers in the back--and a new haircut. This is short for me (I only cut my hair once or twice a year...I'm lazy and cheap like that!) / 2. Sweetgrass flowers from Charleston gracing my dining room table / 3. Red cups return to Starbucks! I love holiday drinks and I love the red cups--they always remind me of when Ben and I started dating (our first date was on November 19th) / 4. Adorable woolen pillows from an Etsy pop-up shop I went to in Seattle / 5. Trying to recreate New Orleans with homemade beignets--and eggnog! / 6. A moss deer with branches for antlers and a pinecone wreath and a frame around it? But of course! I love Anthropologie displays, and I actually think those branch antlers are a pretty smart idea for a DIY / 7. A cute felted ball napkin ring from a West Elm event I went to this month / 8. Yum! Roasted pears with nuts and granola at my friend Renae's house / 9. Playing Blokus and drinking hot apple cider / 10. Our ugly sweaters for Thanksgiving. Haaawt, right?
