A wild week!

What a wild week of weather. Lots of lake effect snow all week long and now its raining out.  This was a picture I took outside of my university office window mid-week.
I understand cold weather is returning and they are predicting we will have several inches of new snow again to give us a white Thanksgiving. It's certainly never dull in MI!  Chris will be spending his Sunday afternoon constructing the backyard ice rink in preparation for the return of cold weather.
 I wrapped up the work week with a great estate sale on my lunch hour Friday.
I really wish I could have gotten there sooner.
 They had advertised lots of vintage Christmas and the pictures looked amazing!
 I did find enough to make me happy.
Speaking of things that make me happy, we did a quick overnight at our A-frame Friday night.  
It's looks super cozy with all the snow.
As you can imagine, I'm having so much fun decorating the cottage for Christmas.
We will be heading back during Thanksgiving break to enjoy some extended time.

I see lots of board games, puzzles and sledding this coming week!
Hoping you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family or friends.  Safe travels (especially if you have snowy weather in your forecast).
After Thanksgiving I'll be revealing a Kim K.  Christmas give-away!  XOXO

It looks so pretty. When our kids were young, we also had a backyard skating rink. It was wonderful, and gave them such enjoyment during the bitterly cold and looooong winter!

Loving everything here Kim! Except that snow. A little more fall would have been nice this year. Love how sweet the A-frame looks, inside and out.

Such cute estate sale goodies. You really have lots of estate sales selling vintage Christmas. Michigan folks must be savers and keepers of stuff. Lucky you!

Have a great Thanksgiving. Looking forward to that 4 day break in our house too. :)

I love the little log cabin display- so perfect! And looks like despite your late arrival, you still found some fun Christmas goodies at the sale!

Crazy weather week in Michigan is an "understatement!" Unbelievable . . .
Even though I was irritated . . . I found it funny too. We had the cleanest, pristine leaf free yard in the neighborhood . . . until a few days ago when the winds came and blew the neighbors UNTENDED leaves over to us. Like I said, an "irritated funny!"
Thought of you and your family playing board games at a snowy A-frame left me feeling very happy . . .
Happy Thanksgiving Kim . . .

What you find during the noon hour boggles the mind! In MN there are people who line up for estate sales by 2:00 am. and all the fun vintage disappears when the first 10 are in the door! Then it goes to 'Occasional Sale' stores where it's marked up 5 times!

Anxious to see the fun you have in store for Cabin Christmas!

We had snow here too! The east coast was hit by a Nor'Easter and we got about 7 inches of snow by other areas around here got up to a foot!! Unheard of this early in the season.....

The Cabin looks so warm and cozy!!
