The Monthly Meet Up

Hey everyone!  It's December 1st which means it's time for The Monthly Meet Up!

Just like anything, we've gotta have some rules.  Ours are short and sweet.

1.  Follow us and link back to us.  We'd love to connect with you, and you to connect with each other.

2.  We challenge you - visit, comment or follow with other bloggers.  Are you up for the challenge?

3.  By posting, you give us permission to feature an image or post on our blog(s).  We'll always give you credit and post links back to you!

This month, it's all about my Christmas goals...so let's get to it!


Christmas Shopping.

I need to get my act together on this one!  I'm about....2% done.  I'm waaaay behind, but it's okay because Jon and I plan to sit down at the computer this week with some hot cocoa wine and do some virtual shopping together.  Shopping in my pajamas with my main squeeze?  

Yes, please.


A Christmas Home Tour.

I find that if I announce something on this little blog of mine, that I'm more likely to accomplish it. 


Hopefully I'll follow through.  ;)

Here are a few photos from last year's home tour...

Christmas Cards.

See?  I told you I was waaaay behind.  I'm not really sure what to do for this year's Christmas photo.  I'm kind of liking this fun picture from The Big House in Ann Arbor.  What do you think?  

I'm a little hesitant because Eliza isn't smiling, but it was a great day for our family...a really, really great day.

Or perhaps this one from last Easter.  I know it was taken a while ago, but it's also one of my all time favorite photos of my kids!

Or perhaps I just need to browse Pinterest for more ideas and come up with something more recent.

What to do, what to do...??

...aaaaaand just to give you an idea of the photo I used from last year...

That's it for me over here.  Sara and I would love it if you joined this little linky party of ours!  So tell a friend and link up!

Happy December 1st,

Marie :) :)
