the week in photos.

happy weekend.

& happy 6 days until thanksgiving!

there’s something about the holiday season that naturally lifts your spirits. hello holiday cheer!

and cheers to one of the last non-holiday-influenced week in photos .. :)

  1. I got new ‘boots with the fur‘. courtesy of my aunt. just in time for the brrrr [I can’t say the w-word, yet].
  2. I took my happy-self to the dollar store & hobby lobby for some DIY supplies. [I’ll be sharing the projects on the blog next week].
  3. my aunt [that got me the boots] ALSO got [J] & I these handy refillable, travel-size perfume bottles. made by travalo. they’re so easy to use!
  4. the finished product: [J]’s cologne is now in a convenient, airport-security-friendly bottle ..and he’s ready to leave for NYC. [my bottle is pink!].
  5. on tuesday night, I made myself a scrumptious cup of hot chocolate. topped with whipped cream & chocolate shavings, of course.
  6. then I looked outside, and saw ..SNOW! ugh.
  7. [J] was in NYC this week, for business. and sent me this shot of him in times square. ahh, I miss it. a little.
  8. AND he brought me back a pint glass from the heartland brewery. which I love, an old date spot of ours :)
  9. HE’S HOME! [you can thank the pink hue to my phone cover].

have an amazing weekend everyone.
