 We ALL LOVE Austin, Texas!
There is no place quite like it in the entire
state of Texas!
Eclectic, strange, vibrant, musical and amazing food!
Jenn lived in Austin during her early 20's and
continues to have a love for this magical city!
So, I was thrilled they planned a holiday excursion
to experience the Trail of Lights!
They plan on spending some holiday time
with her lovely parents!

This is the most darling little Nativity set I have.
It is of very small scale and I so enjoy it.
We did not bring decorations out of the attic this year,
so our large Nativity remains unpacked!
Perhaps next year! 

We did our major errands and shopping trip
yesterday and...it's beginning to look like Christmas!

Oh the sweets.......
just fun to look at!

Have y'all tried these yet?
They are DIVINE!

Getting ready for the Christmas morning buffet
The Mimosa's!

These sweet little guys are sure to put
a smile on your face
while enjoying your morning coffee!

I tried a new theme this year
with ornaments of red, green and gold...
still thinking about it.....
I'll probably change it up next year!

What's on your reading list for the last part of 2016?
I am so looking forward to starting Naomi Judd's new book..
I love her!
What an interesting life she has lived!
Y'all have a great week...
Christmas is coming......


  1. Pretty children. :) Those goodies look too tempting for me. :):) I love the tags on your carafes. Your tree is lovely. I like Naomi too. Wishing you a great week to Christmas. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. Pretty gathering of goodies there! I am sure that I would love your pretzel treats; I usually do the mini pretzel with a Rolos thing. Your Christmas morning buffet is sure to be wonderful.

  3. Nice assortment of Christmas treats, Betsy. The lights in Austin are really spectacular. It's funny, we just returned from a Christmas Open House and a friend was telling me about her daughter who lives in Austin. She loves it. Enjoy this wonderful week leading up to Christmas! ♥

  4. where did you find those Snappers?

    1. I bought mine at Target Janey!


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
