Happy Monday {54th Ed.}

I have been absent...can you sense a new years resolution coming on?! Anyways, Happy Monday blog land!! Here is what is making me smile..

My charlie brown "tree"
I can't take credit for the idea (thank you Pinterest), but will totally take ownership of the awesome execution! Its the scrap from a tree lot, how stinkin' cute! Oh, and its perfect for my table and completely fills my need for real tree smell :)
This non-tree christmas tree
Its just so unique! Too bad my cats would have it knocked down in 10 seconds flat.

Sweater blanket
I love this, and if MN ever decides to have a winter, I think I will actually need it! I think (fingers crossed) I am getting a sewing machine for christmas...if so, this is the first project on my list!

My new owl painting
I found this guy at this awesome antique shop a few blocks from our house. It was the first time I had been in there and I am so excited about it, its just an old house with rooms and rooms filled with antique / consignment / awesomeness! Anyways, I saw this beautiful owl painting and conveniently showed to to Rachel the next day....hint hint :) Guess what I got for our anniversary (which was last Friday, 4 years!)
the picture doesn't do it justice,
but doesn't she have a beautifully stately look on her face?
Trader Joe's Mini Gingerbread Men Cookies
Warning; unless you have incredible willpower or no care for your waistline, do not get these!! Seriously, they are heavenly!

No joking; my mouth started watering as I uploaded this picture....damn you Pavlov!

Ok, that is all for me this week. What is making you smile?

Awww jeez- 4 years together! I remember that fateful night... I had to rest my huge pregnant belly on the pool table to make a shot and then your little sparks started flying with your lady lol- uh, no relation between the 2 events of course...

That owl painting is awesome! What a great piece for your home.

Love that ornament tree - and the tree you made for yourself. My friend sent me a picture of a tree made out of books! I wil have to find it in my inbox and send it to you. You'd love it!

Congrats on your anniversary!!! Big hugs to you both. I'm so happy Rachel caught the "hint" about the painting and gave you the perfect gift.

Plus I love your little tree. It looks incredibly festive.

Okay, so this Monday I'm thankful for the peace and stability of my home with A. I've had to listen to too much relationship drama from others the last few weeks.
