Happy Sunday!! Hope you’ve been enjoying your weekend. We’ve been trying to enjoy ourselves indoors as it’s absolutley FREEZING! here in northern California. (Well, I admit, freezing to us is probably different than most people’s definitions of freezing!) This mostly means annoying Mellan, watching Mad Men, and blogging, but hey, it’s my kind of fun.
