I'm basically Horrible at this blogging thing...

It's true, I've been so MIA! I've had a million things going on and when I don't have something going on I have been taking the totally lazy road and sitting on my duff watching Dancing with the Stars, Duck Dynasty, Revenge, or something equally as stimulating. I usually never get attached to TV shows...outside of those amazing college years of Dawson's Creek, Felicity and Trading Spaces. But I have found a new level of relaxation and am really enjoying doing nothing.

My home, on the other hand, is not enjoying my TV marathon! I have a Christmas tree that is up, lit and fluffed and begging for ornaments. I was completely inspired and now I'm completely exhausted. I got out a few ornaments yesterday and then sat down and watched Castle. I'm neat.


So there is my really ridiculous version of my I haven't been blogging. Well, that and spending time doing this....

Did I tell y'all I saw the Chihuly exhibit at that Dallas Arboretum? If you're in the area and haven't gone, do it! It's breathtaking! I wish I had taken my read camera instead of my iPhone 3G which does these sculptures zero justice!




We rescued a dog from a sweet lady who is having to move to help a family member in her fight with cancer. His name is Wally...he's 6 months old, he's a MUFFIN, and I'm honestly not sure I've ever seen a cuter dog! My sister and her husband are going to keep him, but they have a little landlord issue at the present, so Wally is currently my Nana's cuddly companion! His previous owner said she "calls him Walter when he misbehaves." STOP IT! 


 I had to say good-bye to my best friend Liz (known on this blog and in my life as the Loj), her husband Daniel, and my boyfriend, Charlie. They are moving to Charlotte (literally driving across the country as we speak) and I am heartbroken. If you live in Charlotte and want a really loyal, incredibly kooky, loving, caring, hysterical friend, and her precious, funny, joyful, 2-year-old sidekick, Charlie...you just let me know and I'll put you in touch. *cue sobs*

This was Charlie-Man giving Avery hugs for no good reason other than a hug!! Sounds like the best reason to me! Love these kids...
In a moment of weakness I made these apple cider doughnuts I saw on Tasty Kitchen Blog. I proceeded to have them for breakfast, snack, dessert, and any ol' time I felt like it for the next 2 days. Make them this very minute. (Ps...I made the mini doughnuts rather than the full-size shown on the recipe)




These would be a really great breakfast for your holiday guests. :)

Those doughnuts look amazing!! I've been wanting to make them, but I can't find a doughnut or mini-doughnut pan! Where did you get yours?

I'm sure I had all sorts of comments before I got to the end of this post but now my brain is all "DONUTS! DONUTS!" That glaze looks heavenly. I will have to make these the next free minute I have!

Well, if I had the ingredients on hand or you lived closer-so I could borrow the ingredients ;)- I would be making them right now, but they are definitely in our near future!!
