Wow, I totally suck. Actually, I have a good reason . . . several in fact, but still, I feel like I should be giving confession or something. Forgive me blog readers, for I have sinned. It has been eleven days since my last blog.
However, I do have some good reasons. Three days after my last blog, my brother got married! To a really, really wonderful woman. I am so excited; in the last three months I have gained two awesome sibling-in-laws! And gone from being the only married child in my family, to being in the majority. (Married people rule! Hi-yah!)
Then it was my seventh anniversary and my husband was taking me to dinner somewhere that was a surprise.
Dinner turned out to be a fabulous getaway at a fun little bed and breakfast where we had the most opulent suite ever! Check this out!
It's hard to see but the bedroom is upstairs on a loft made to look like a really gorgeous balcony.
And here is the view from said balcony.
And then picture rose petals strewn all over the stairs and rug and all around the edge of the bath. It was so beautiful!
Then we got home and got smacked in the face with a huge emergency that has taken the better part of the week to deal with. However, this was also the week I had to bake seven pies (from scratch!) and make about ten pounds of hand-dipped chocolates. (Also from scratch!) Luckily, we have come out nearly unscathed, the pies were delicious, and there are sixty little bags full of chocolate truffles, raspberry fondant chocolates, chocolate covered caramels, and chocolate-covered penuche waiting for the people on our list. Whew!
Oh, and Thanksgiving was in there somewhere . . . .
However, because of that, I have spent about ten minutes a day on the internet for the last week.
But what about you? I want to hear how your holidays were! Hopefully a little less busy than mine.
No really, please share!!
