My Everyday Life: Week 52

Here’s what this past week looked like- My Everyday Life Week 52

Merry Christmas! 

Here’s what Christmas Eve looked like at my house:

Table set!

Dining table put to good use!

I love the way it looks in the afternoon.

My Dad helping shuck the clams. He’s wearing my Mom’s apron.

I think there’s a picture of him in the wearing that same apron in this kitchen from my childhood somewhere.

Ali killed it on the appetizers. YAY, ALI!

Lobster dinner with linguini and clams!


My Mom’s Rocky Road made an appearance.

I bought a tin of danish butter cookies to remind me of my grandma.

Kitchen the morning after…

Mom’s sour cream coffee cake is a Christmas staple.

Cooper waiting patiently to open presents.

A personalized message from a Handwriting Club order.

Christmas DIM SUM!!!  We go to Yank Sing every year.

Their sesame balls are my favorite.

A long walk and drinks at the Ritz.

My Dad looking pretty cute in that blue sweater.


Checking out the tree at the Ritz.

Gorgeous afternoon light.

These two!

Wrapping presents and finding a rainbow.

My little wrapping helper.

Morning coffee.

The egg yolk though.

His name is Huggy.

I want pink spray paint.

Neiley making a FEAST while I do art on her kitchen counter.

Drawing at a party.

A visit with Oscar and Angela.

My boys on the couch watching youtubes.

His little “socks” are my favorite.

Working on my food journal!

Bundled up for an adventure with my boys.

Sun bathing huggs.

He will always find a stick to turn into a baseball bat wherever we go.

Picking up wine at La Rochelle & having a tasting while I work in my Currently Workbook!

So grown.

Yesterday was pretty in wine country.

We walked downtown Healdsburg.

The CLOSED sign caught my eye.

Not your average sidewalk.

Omakase at Masa’s!

Cooper likes unagi, salmon nigiri, tuna nigiri and toro.


Food is art!

Glad to see my Mom in my Top 9 on Instagram from 2019.

Huggy too!

    Ooooh the colors in “drawing at a party”,,,
    What a killer print that would be for a silk blouse, or a skirt or a dress!

  • Amanda

    Looks like a good Christmas week!

    Question…where are those bags used for the bread/crackers on your Xmas Eve app spread from?

  • Becky B

    We’re making your mom’s coffee cake for our NYE dessert! Thank you for posting the recipe 🙂 I can’t get enough pics of Huggy!

  • Mandi Frederick

    How do you set up cocktails for a dinner party? Well stocked bar and make whatever? Plan a menu of offered drinks? I’m so curious.

  • Libby

    Your dining room is stunning. I love the dark color of the walls with the gilded frames!
