Happy Weekend.

That Thanksgiving came and went faster than the last slice of mom's sweet pumpkin pie, okay so she didn't actually make pumpkin  pie but if she had... it'd go pretty darn fast.  

And while I love Thanksgiving and the gathering that's involved and that Tom Turkey and the watching Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in our pj's and all the while wishing we were in NYC, and... I do, I do, I really, really do love all of it; well, something happens Thanksgiving morn that's so traditional in it's consistency and not very Thanksgiving-ish at all.

It starts with a tingle and I swear the weather outside feels all kinds of "it could snow any minute now" and the house gets all comfy cozy, yes, that would be our little beach house in Hawaii, play along won't ya?   And so, I grandly choose a Christmas station on Pandora, in lieu of my father's picking a record from his Columbia Records club collection, oh the days of sweet music released by the scratching of a needle pressed against spinning vinyl, and let the wafting smells of baking goodness and roasting turkey fill the house and then, all of a sudden right on cue, Christmas is here.  

It's like, as if, in the very last second of the season long race Thanksgiving, who always successfully holds back that Christmas with a nudge and a "don't you dare pass me" glance in our house, is beat out by one little pinky toe of a carol, and Christmas again arrives two seconds before Thanksgiving, sort of.

Here's a little something to get your Christmas spirit hard rocking...

And, also...
Happy Weekend.

live sweet, 


Maybe we should all "shake 'em down" through the holidays just like this.

And this because, no one, no one beats Santa Claus.

  2. sounds like you had a beautiful Thanksgiving. so nice to have spent it with your family!

  3. My family knows I don't like seeing one darn Christmas item until Thanksgiving day. Once that Pumpkin Pie is out of the oven and the turkey is filling our noses with its promises of a delightful meal *BAM* I'm ready to whip out the ornaments and pick out a tree!

    Thank you, again for stopping by my blog and letting me join in on all the fun! You have a new follower!

  4. Love this place that you described! It seems so warm and cozy and one where I wish to hang out right now! I got a new mini Xmas tree, it is foiled pink and it is going in my room! Cannot wait to put them all up! I will definitely blog about it with pictures and everything!

    Thank you again for the invite!!!

  5. I guess I'm a slow roller, I started making a few change's to start ushering the Christmas Holiday in but it's not like *BAM* for me. I sorta's transition from one holiday to another.

    On another note, I can't wait to get a glimpse at how you do Christmas in Hawaii. I love getting a glimpse at other places and their unique tradition.
