I've been out of the blogging world (read: no writing on my blog, no reading other blogs) for over a month and I'm so ready for this next month of winter break.
On the agenda: a little bit of babysitting, some shopping, baking, and a whole lot of reading.
Who remembers when I made my reading wish list for winter break? Well now it's time to get started!
These are the beauties I've already picked up from the library.
And now, since I've been away for a while, I thought I'd share some pictures that have been collecting dust on my Instagram profile for the past month and a half.
* the leaves on this tree are now almost completely gone *
* taken before the unseasonably cold homecoming football game #geauxColonels *
* taken on an unseasonably cold and rainy day, which is my favorite kind *
* A rare family photo taken on Thanksgiving day *
** I don't think anyone actually likes that painting on the mantel**
