the tree

where have i been? i didn't realize i hadn't posted in so long. it is that busy time of year. i hosted thanksgiving. seven relatives stayed for three nights. it was not as crazy as it sounds. it was rather nice. i enjoyed seeing every inch of my house being appreciated. the weather was lovely, so the porch was even in full swing and i just loved it.

my design class girls continue to impress me. such a sweet, talented bunch. they are working on individual christmas tree designs, a local scavenger hunt, and in-class projects each day. i send them to many of your blogs for inspiration. i mean, you inspire me, so i know it works :)

tomorrow is my husband's birthday. so i got him this. he will love it. haha.


today, i went to the dentist. and since my dentist reads my blog, i will put this nicely. the horse pill motrin she gave me was NOT big enough. :) i wear invisalign braces. they rock. but holy pain. today she filed (yes, like your nails) in between each of my little sensitive teeth. a lot. and then put my new liner back in. i told her i still love her. i really do. but, um, ouch.

i am getting everyone the same gifts for christmas this year. my mom and dad, my brother, my grandparents, my brother in law...they are all getting the same thing. of course i can't tell you what it is yet, but this stuff, mainly one thing in particular, we love so much, i thought everyone must share our joy. it's kind of like a bethy's favorite things christmas. :)

the stuff in the picture at the top will be going on my tree. when we get it. we are behind here in the decorating. but, that doesn't mean i am not thinking about it...or shopping for it!

my new favorite holiday treat is a caribou coffee peppermint green tea. you must go in and get a medium because it is the only size that comes in the beautiful aqua snowflake cup. it is the happiest little gift you can give yourself while you are running all of your holiday errands. in fact, go get one. it is my treat:)



and speaking of treats. you want to know who won the cool club drawing? suburban mom! yippppeee!! so, katherine, you stranger you, send me your address! i won't publish it, and i will send you a very cool gift (courtesy of the cool club).

so i will try to be a better poster. and a better holiday decorator. and i will try not to ramble so much next time. too much tea.

I would have joined your club, but I don't drive a BMW. :)
My hybrid would have hurt feelings.

1. Don't you love when your WHOLE house is used? I am always pushing people in my living room.
And...
2. Invisalign! Really? I am considering getting those...besides the pain..your happy with them it sounds?

i didn't know gifts were involved in joining the club or i too would've transferred my membership. however inticing members with gifts, well, that sounds as if it may interfere with ncca rules (national cool clubs of america). i may have you investigated under article 13 section 5a where it clearly states that you may have unintentionally violated the policies and procedures of such an esteemed club...herein...wheretofore...blah, blah, blah.

you are cool, i am not.

sorry you had to endure pain. that's a bummer.

yowza on t the dentist visit. i worked for an orthodontist for about 15 mins. forever ago and I couldn't stand it when he would do that. I clicked on last night to find that your blog was open to invited readers only and I was so sad. I check in with you often and enjoy your blog and your inspiration so much, whew! Glad it was short lived. Glad your home and thanksgiving was filled with loved ones.

glad you're back!

Dear cottage bethy,

I am a bit of a blog lurker, and I would never normally write a note to anyone whose blog I visited…I hate for you to feel you have to reply. So…while that is my normal MO today I read that you wear invisalign. Well I am just about to decide to get them or not (they cost $7500 and are not covered by dental here in Canada!) so I wanted to bother you…and ask if you could kindley tell me if you are happy with them, how long you’ve worn them…how much change you’ve noticed etc. I would just value your opinion so much so any info would be great in helping me decide! If you could tell me how “bad” your teeth were before that would be fabulous also!!! I hope you don’t mind me asking…thanks so much.

Signed,
A blog reader,
