Dress of the week November 28th

Good morning Ladies, today is the first Sunday of Advent , the start of the celebration  of  the birth of Jesus on Christmas day.

The Advent wreath

I hope you are all doing well , and for  those that celebrated Thanksgiving  , I hope it was a special day  for you and your family. 

Last weekend was  pretty relaxing, I had a hair appointment on Saturday morning where I got a trim. It was nice  to get a wash, blow dry,  and great conversation with my Stylist Aimee!  After that I went and grabbed a coffee from Caribou, and then did a little shopping at target. It is nice to  go alone sometimes to shop and browse!  The rest of The day was spent with laundry and  clean up. We also  had fun game night with some of the kids. 

On Sunday my  county men’s football  team from back home won  their first provincial trophy in 23 years. I was able to see  it on tv!

Monday ,Tuesday and Wednesday  went fast , then  all of a sudden it was thanksgiving day! We ordered the food from our local hyvee  grocery store, and prepared it at home. We usually  host for extended family but the year that’s in it it was  just ourselves. We had a nice day, and I enjoyed  a few glasses of wine🍷 nothing over the top!!

We did a zoom call with the extended family after lunch . It is a great way to get together,  even though it takes getting used to chatting that way compared to face to face. We did recieve some really good news on the call !! My brother-in-law  and his wife announced that they are expecting  a baby in April!! It is so exciting , we all have been waiting for this day for a few years! She is having a really good pregnancy  so far.

Friday was a day of cookie baking and frosting! The kids had a lot of fun with it! On Saturday we put up our outside lights and inflatables. They are looking good. Then for dinner we had friends over and played the game giant spoons , it was so fun!

some of our cookies!!

Wishing you a lovely rest of your weekend, Terri xoxo.

  1. Hi Terri! So glad to hear you’re all doing well and especially the good news about your brother-in-law and his wife expecting a baby!

    We celebrated our son’s birthday and his wife and daughter baked Christmas cookies which were then decorated as part of the birthday party festivities. Preparing for Christmas is a wonderful part of this season as we celebrate our Saviou’s birth this month!

    The green dress is perfect for Christmas! Love the high-low wrap style! 10

  2. Love the dress, Terri–so perfect for a fancy Christmas party. I love green!
    You’re solo Saturday sounds lovely and relaxing (not the laundry and clean up, the other). I haven’t had a day out like that in ages and ages and ages. *sigh*
    We had a Thanksgiving like you had, complete with a Zoom family call. Thank goodness for being able to stay connected that way at least. It sort of does feel like a ‘visit’ with our loved ones.
    Congrats on your football team. What county is that? My husband visited Ireland in the early 1990s for work. I almost went along with him, but decided to use my days off to help my grandma after a surgery.
    Those cookies look delicious! Are they all gobbled up yet? Isn’t it hard to believe it’s that time of year again for baking and decorating and lights? The years roll over so fast!
    Hugs ❤


    1. I was Just Thinking the dress would be be very nice for A fancy party, If there were any on this year! I really like this shade of green . Saturday was very nice going solo .
