i woke up this morning and could hardly believe that it was already the week of Thanksgiving! every year seems to go by more quickly for me (and others, it seems) and this year is no exception. it didn't start to feel like the holiday season until we got our first snow on Friday. it was the most beautiful snow. you know, the kind where it feels like you're living inside of a snowglobe? the best. i listened to my first bit of Christmas music and was finally feeling festive.

my roommate and i threw a little "friendsgiving" yesterday, so i am even more ready for the holidays. we had all the goods - mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, rolls, mac & cheese, and...rotisserie chicken...(insert some explanation about why i didn't cook a turkey, but really it just comes down to ease and time-saving. and rotisserie chickens are really good). also, if you're in the market for a new mac & cheese recipe, i highly recommend this one. so easy and SO delicious.

it was a busy weekend, but certainly wasn't lacking in good food and company, so who can complain?
