last night we headed over to sleepy hollow to check out their annual christmas lights. we go every year and haven't gotten tired of it yet. there are always so many people, in their cars and on foot. and lots of families selling hot cocoa and treats from the end of their driveways. and each tree is decorated creating a canopy of lights on every street. i'm assuming no matter what age you are you feel like a kid as soon as you turn the corner. we ended the night with some ice cream too. :)

tonight is the usual friday night dinner with everyone at my grandparents. we get to bake sugar cookies with little cousins too. wishing everyone a happy weekend!

is it a little too late to be posting pictures from thanksgiving? that's what happens when you shoot film. and you take way too long to develop. i'm on my way out the door, we're going thrifting and regular not so exciting shopping. bye friends! :)

i'll be taking measurements and adding new dresses to the shop today. and eating delicious hash sandwiches at my grandparents house. we've been spending a great deal over there these days, but i'm not complaining, i love it there.

ps. this is our living/dining room in complete chaos when we gave the walls a new coat of paint.

the only thing i don't care about around the holidays are the long lines in the post office. lines out the door. holding or scooting along heavy packages. but i must endure it because sweet kind people are waiting for their little gifts from my shop. afterwards i'll be taking pictures of a few new dresses i thrifted yesterday. plaids and florals, my favorite. i also found a few things for myself. more on that later. my grandma buys movies at the thrift store, my grandpa can't stand it, but it's hilarious. she found jurassic park for a buck and i've actually been wanting to watch that. so my grandma and i have a movie date today. what are you lovely internet peeps doing today?

ps. who doesn't like a stack of pancakes in the morning.

my mom takes her holiday decorating very seriously. our 83 year old home looks like a little gingerbread house. i personally think less is more, but don't tell my mom. ;)
