It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

i had a yummy lunch today. carrots and green beans with shallots and herbs (leftover from thanksgiving dinner) and chicken salad. i basically just threw together chicken, celery, tomatoes, and a little shredded cheese with my spike dressing. so good! i love that dressing and use it on everything from tacos to sandwiches to salads and even as a dip for veggies. check out the recipe here.

after my lunch fuel, E and i did some yard work. it was long over due because of all the rain. today was beautiful though, very warm which made mulching leaves, pulling up ivy and trimming bushes less horrible.

i have taken down all of our fall decorations and am trying to hold off until next weekend before putting up christmas decorations. it's really hard though. i really want to put them all up now and fill the house with christmas music. we even already have our tree (i know, we are crazy). it's outside though in a bucket of water hopefully drinking it up:)

so, my will power isn't very good and i convinced myself it was ok to put up just a couple of things around the house. lots of people in our neighborhood already have christmas lights up outside which makes me feel better. i didn't put up too many, actually just 2 places, just to make it feel cheery and christmasy.
