Palm Trees Wrapped in Christmas Lights

First up, let's talk about how cute my new layout and color scheme is. But more importantly, the cuteness of my header picture up there now! I am in love with it :) I think it's gonna stay for a while, but I'll probably change the pictures out occasionally as we go along!

And next, we can talk about today's installment of Mani Monday (which I haven't done in a while...), but this is my super duper easy Thanksgiving-themed mani! Just a simple turkey face on my thumb nail of my left hand, and then some polka dots on the thumb of my right hand, (which I forgot to take a picture of...). So simple, and oh-so-cute!


And now moving on to my weekend recap... 

This past weekend, Jeff and I drove over to St. Augustine, to spend some time with my bestest friends! A few weeks ago I heard my friend Nicole and her husband (from Pensacola now) were going to be there this weekend too, I decided we also had to go and make it a little reunion for us! 

We ate lots of yummy food, did a little shopping in downtown, visited a unique gourmet popcorn shop, counted down at the Nights of Lights celebration, played Catch Phrase with all my friends, and then ate some more yummy food before coming back home on Sunday. We took it easy and relaxed and just hung out all weekend, and we all had a great time together. From here on out today, I'll just let the pretty pictures speak for themselves! :)

And one of the great things about St. Augustine, and pretty much all of Florida, is that we even have our Palm Trees Wrapped in Christmas Lights. So tropical and so lovely too! I hope you guys had good weekends as well! I know I sure did. And now I only have to work three days this week, and then we get to celebrate Thanksgiving! Hooray! I love short work-weeks!

Oh, and also - I was a guest blogger yesterday over at Let Them Eat Cake. So if you want my super easy recipe for Pizza Puffs (which let me tell you that you DO in fact want that recipe), head on over HERE to check that out!

And today I'm linking up with Covered in Grace, Glitter & Gloss, Sami's Shenanigans and Synfully Delicious.

Those lights look fabulous! Side note: I can never get anything I put on my nails to look that great so kudos to you!

Happy Monday!

Looks like you had a great weekend! Those trees look awesome. That's something I don't think I could ever get used to. I need some snow in my life =]
