Quick Weekend Recap!




 Scroll Down for Pot Pie Recipe via the link-up with Home Sweet Ruby today!



Happy Monday! (if you can be happy about a Monday)

This weekend we really did a whole lot of this:

Please notice the lazy pup haha


I then finally convinced the hubster to go with me to the annual Christmas Show in our area which a co-worker gave us free tickets to on Sunday. I love getting out and supporting the town as well as small business and it is a perfect haven for craft bloggers let me tell ya! TONS of sweets, goodies, crafts and even WINE! We ran into the Grinch and I scored the most festive garden flag- definitely my favorite purchase!


Is this not PERFECT? Merry Christmas Ya'll!!


They even had a mancave ya'll!

Next I have to share a new & simple recipe I decided to try once seeing it on The Chew last week. I've never made a homemade pot pie because I didn't realize just how darn EASY it was and you can use ANYTHING! I've posted the recipe below so be sure to give it a try- so good since it's cold out. Hope ya'll had a fabulous weekend!
