Looks & Taste a lot like Christmas

Only You by Ellie Goulding - on Grooveshark
Hey yall!
Courtney here, my Mum has gotten a new house in Caribou, so I am now staying next door to the studio. Which is rather cool, now I can walk around town and to the studio. So I am determent to walk around and get some good pictures of the town. It so cute! I walked to the library today, it is very lovely. Wish I took a photo of it. I will put it on my to do list! :P

So since we are in the new house we are trying to get everything unpacked and ready for Christmas. We are having a Christmas & Cookie Swap party Saturday and then James is coming up on Christmas Eve and then Christmas! Lots to get done! Hoping we get a tree tomorrow and all pretty for Saturday and I gotta get food and party items for Saturday. We have tons of stuff to do! So I have putting up a little Christmas cheer around the house! Check it out below

Just wishing my love was going to be here for Christmas. I miss him so much and I am going crazy with out him here. I just hope he has a great Christmas, though he said he is not all that excited. Which I totally understand why. Also Yule is this weekend. So I am thinking of doing a mini Yule dinner on Sunday though it is Friday/Saturday. It is the Pagan Christmas I guess you could say.  They pretty much have the same traditions. Anywho. I have some photos too share.

Christmas Whoopie Pies!

Added Christmas lights under the cabinets. Looks so pretty in person

So we are slowly adding some Christmas Cheer around the house... Hopefully it all be ready by Saturday. What are some ways you spread Christmas Cheer or how you decorate for the holidays? Post links I like to see :D

Merry Christmas and Happy Yule!

Fill in the Blank Friday - Christmas Blanks & Pictures

 Linking up with The Little Things We Do
1) When it comes to holiday shopping: I normally do it all on Black Friday but this year I did no shopping. lol I have a feeling its going to all last mintue this year! I have a few things I got to ship to SC this year and the rest I just have Mom and my little brother, Adrian.

2) A few things that are my Christmas wish list: some new jeans... not exciting I know. I love to have a new lens for my camera and a few little girly things I have found on the web. But nothing exciting maybe just to me :P Oh an a MAC computer :D
3) An intangible gift I would like to receive:  Does seeing Curtis Count?
4) A gift I like to give this year is:  Mama dream Coffee Pot (tim hortons)
5)My Christmas will be spent: In Maine with my Mom and Brother in their new house. Which my mom is rather excited about. I am very happy for her. Also hopfully spent making tons of bake goods and with some new friends. Christmas party on the 22.... keeping fingers cross...
6) My most favorite Christmas gift of all time: This is rather hard... As a child would have to be my doll house, I remember waking up and it was sitting under the Christmas tree it was so exciting! 
Yep that's me and that doll house!!! :D

7) The Best thing about the holidays is cozying up around the tree and tv watching A Christmas Story and drink hot coco on Christmas Eve!

Curtis sent me some pictures today! I miss the him and the pups so bad! Its going to be a hard Christmas without him this year. I just don't know what I am going to do. Has anyone spent a Christmas without your other half? If so How did you deal with it? I think I will be ok I just know it is going to be hard, Thanksgiving was awful without him and I just want Christmas to be happy for the both of us.

They are not the best of pictures. Carter at the top the Boxer, then Wookie sleeping and Curtis showing off his new hair cut he got today.... He looking good from the side! hahaha

My Christmas Bucket List

I saw someone else do a Christmas Bucket List, and I thought to do the same. Christmas is one of the busiest holidays for my family and there are always things I am wanting to do but always seem to forget about them or run out of time. So this year I make a list. Maybe it will help me to remember! Also what better way to start December off!  Only 25 more days till Christmas! :D
