Thanks for all your kind thoughts about Harley. She was truly a special pup, and will be missed.

We are officially under contract on our house! Things are far from certain, and the situation is still fairly complex, but we are absolutely delighted to have taken a concrete step in the right direction. Next comes all the inspection BS, hiring a lawyer, making sure financing is good etc. If all goes well, we will close in mid-January. Keep your fingers crossed!

My sister in law Emily comes home from Prague tomorrow! She is bringing her boyfriend, Jirka, and they will be home for almost the entire month of December, which the whole family is excited about. Tomorrow is also my father in law’s birthday, AND we’re seeing a show, so it’s big doings around here!

Christmas music season is in full swing for me. I know some people (like Ben) can’t stomach it until basically the week of Christmas, but I’m obsessed. We have a local radio station that plays Christmas music non-stop from Thanksgiving until Christmas, and you can bet I’ve been tuned in constantly.

I have a new snack obsession. Plain Greek yogurt with Honey Nut Chex. I know it sounds weird, but trust me, it’s delicious. You get a nice crunch and sweetness from the Chex, almost like granola. But I’m not a super huge fan of granola, whereas I could eat cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Plus, you’re getting a good mix of protein and carbs. Give it a try! I’m sure you’ll thank me later 😉

How do you feel about Christmas music?

    I’m not a huge fan of the music, but I’m not really a huge fan of the holiday either. Once I put on a good Christmas album, I like it, but I am kinda picky. I DO, however; definitely agree with that Tweet. I HATE it when others make people feel bad for putting up their decorations or listen to the music early! Let people enjoy what they like! Just because I don’t love it doesn’t mean I can make you feel bad for liking it! What’s your favorite holiday album?

      So, this is REALLY nerdy, but I love love LOVE Bette Midler’s holiday album Cool Yule. It’s got a couple of fun contemporary numbers and some classics, and who doesn’t love Bette?
