  1. Andie’s book looks so great! SO funny you didn’t get sucked into Making a Murderer….I think it goes two ways for people…they LOVE it or just don’t 🙂

  2. I get the blues in the winter as well. I bought a Happy Light off of Amazon to put on my desk. It really does work!

  3. I totally agree on Making a Murderer. My husband and I watched the first 2 episodes and just didn’t get all the hype. I am determined to finish it though so watched two more the other night. I doubt my husband will join me in finishing all of them!

  4. HA! Maxwell is rocking that 80’s hair! If mullets do come back he will be in the vanguard.

    And I’m sorry you get winter blues, Maria! I absolutely adore winter and get the July and August blues. Seriously, I have the summer version of SAD. We are exact opposites.

  5. love you guys! Great post! Love the pic of the hair! So cool! and the Conan video was so funny! and the video for pretzel  bites was really good!

  6. Maxwell’s hair is amazing! So blond and curly:) Hope you have a great time skiing Josh!  Sorry but I’m rooting for the Denver Broncos not the Patriots….lol….

    The video for the pretzel bites is really good and I did share it:) I think the house renovation is fantastic! I think the barley soup looks amazing and I’m adding it to my soup list along with the brown sugar pancakes! 

    I too am suffering from the winter blues….bah…I am a sunlight and warm weather person stuck in the midwest

    1. Love you too! SO excited for your book and I hope you are coming to visit so you can nuzzle Maxwell! xo
