Weekend WrapUp

Our weekend was full of freezing rain and sleet, so getting outside wasn't the grandest of ideas. So, with all our time indoors, we made my grandmothers Moravian Sugar Cookies Recipe. YUM! Its basically the typical from scratch sugar cookie with a bit of a twist. They are SOOOO yummy and even though we only know ourselves in this little town -- we have about 200 sugar cookies to eat on our own. Luckily I'll hand out some in little holiday boxes to the cleaning women in our building and doormen. I'll also hand some out to the homeless I see on Mack and I's daily walks. Say "hi" -- get some cookies! Pretty good deal.

Aside from being buried in cookies we started the series Downton Abbey. I LOVE it and can't stop talking in an English accent and wanting to wear beautiful long dresses. I've also asked Scott to address me as "his ladyship". I'm not sure if that will stick. I know I'm late to this party, but, that series gets addicting quickly!

What did you do? Anything fun? Bake anything yummy? If you want Granny's recipe, let me know.

I posted this on Instagram the other night because it made me laugh so hard. We always give our pooch WAY too much attention and I guess he was getting tired of all the attention (poor Mack!) that he put his paw up to Scott as if, "No More Kisses". What a little brat! 

Just look at that sweet face down there -- so, adorable!! Oh and Mack, he's cute too. ;)

Hey Ya! Friday Tune

Its nice to see these guys hanging out again. Seeing them in 2001 in Columbia, SC was seriously one of the best shows Ive ever been to. I will absolutely see these guys again as its rumored that they are going to tour. If there is any band you should exclusively see in the dirty, dirty -- its Outkast.

For that... here is your Friday Tune:

San Frannnnnnncisco


I was in San Francisco for the last week or so and every time I am there, I fall in love with it a little more. Scottie and I were there visiting family for the Thanksgiving holiday and the weather was in the mid 60's the entire time and SUNNY! We seem to always hit foggy and rainy SF when the weather is perfect. I have probably now jinxed the rest of our visits for the rest of time now.

We did some sight-seeing even though I feel like we've done most everything. The best of the best was the FOOD we ate -- I MISS GOOD FOOD! NC has great BBQ, but, I miss some of the ethnic food we used to have at our finger tips.

Here are some pics that we took -- hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I was thankful to be amongst family and plenty of smiles and laughs.

Checking to see if DJ, Stephani, Michelle and maybe Kimmy Gibler were around to hang.

The hills in SF are amazing. I walked down this one. I complain the whole way up the next one.

Annual family hike down to Stinson Beach on Thanksgiving morning. One of my favorite things to do there with my favorite people.

Us being us.

Scottie feeling the ice cold water. I prefer to take his word for it. (I do not like cold water)

We won 1st place for the Kirby Karaoke Jam. No contest. Nailed it with some AC/DC. oh yeah.

Two of my favorite houses in SF. Aren't they incredible?

Oh San Francisco, while it would take a LOT to move me away from my beloved east coast -- you do pull my heart strings as a place I would like. You never disappoint me with your beauty.
