Blogging, Bookish and Real Life News:
So last week I said the COYER site got hacked. Well we completely lost it…it was so hacked that we couldn’t even get it back so we started another site but this time on blogger. The new site is called Because Challenges make reading more fun (a mix of our blog and berls old blog’s name) We plan to put all our challenges on that site, if we can figure out how to work blogger again. So if you signed up for COYER you will need to head on over to the site and link up again…we also lost the linky. You can access the sign up by using COYERChallenge.com, BecauseChallenges.com or COYERChallenge.blogspot.com, a little over kill but we wanted to be thorough and make sure you can totally find it. Some of the sign up posts will be a little late but I will announce it here when they do go live.
Turkey day was nice and quiet, we spend it with my mom’s family and I do love spending the holidays with them. I watched the parade, made yummy artichokes, eat lots of food and drank lots of wine. It was a very productive day! 🙂
The house is done! We had to relocate the nutcrackers and put a few things in different spots but it looks so festive! I love it!!!!
It’s the KITTENS FIRST CHRISTMAS!!! So far Calliope is the only one to climb into the tree, so Saturday we wired it to the window frame, at least if they knock a few ornaments off they wont knock over the entire tree. I didn’t put my Tinkerbell on top or any fragile ornaments so everything is pretty kitten safe. I also put Orange Peels in the tree because apparently cats don’t like the smell of citrus. These two don’t really follow the cat rules of the world so it might not work, otherwise they just seem super confused. Calliope is loving the idea of sleeping under the tree (totally fine with that because she looks so freakin cute and comfy) and Auggie prefers the little house we got him from Target. (You can see it in the first picture.) I only need a few more little things for the kids but I am officially finished with all Santa gifts (except the pets, but I do that last). Now it’s just a few gifts for the family which I will do in the next week or so, such a relief and I never left the house.
Going to spend most of today blogging, organizing and getting some stuff done. Next Sunday we are going to the Christmas Spectacular in NY so I wont be around during the day. I am going to try and have a Sunday post but I might have to skip it. I hate being so non-present on the blog but it is what it is. I will be back full time soon enough, just taking a little longer than I hoped to get there. 🙂
