We received a gift in the mail from Doggybloggy! Some popcorn and chile! We put the chile to use immediately.
Veggie fajitas with coleslaw
Meanwhile, we'd been informed by our neighbors that we should think about putting up some lights. (we were the only house on our street that didn't have any up!) So, the brave Tavo clambered up on our very high, very steep roof and we kept up with the Jones's
I went to Chicago this weekend for my friend's birthday. Once we got to the airport, I realized I'd forgotten my driver's license. Tavo quickly drove home, grabbed it for me, and drove back. Thanks babe! I made the flight with time to spare.
The view from our hotel was amazing...
The inside was cool, too. There were cookies and coffee set out 24 hours a day in the lobby. Yum.
Lake Michigan and the zoo. Mostly frozen lake!
We went to Stanley's for brunch
and for their bloody mary bar
Then we went to the thrift store to find some hot clothes for the evening
Em and I LOOOOOOOOVED the thrift store! This has been a hobby of ours for more than 10 years.
Went to California Clippers to see a band play--Dan Whitaker and the Shinebenders. Good dancing music!
and I'm back home to celebrate Christmas with Tavo and the family. An interesting side note--the homeless man who lives behind my work decorated his tree, too.
Happy Holidays everyone!
