Monday Snax: Back to reality

Whew. What a lovely, busy holiday vacation we enjoyed in the great state of North Carolina. A brief photo recap:

We ate many lavish meals... (Here, the annual Christmas Eve dinner at the Pratt's.)
... got dressed up...
... received the most amazing gift of all time: The long-awaited pop art portrait of Tracy Morgan, by the one and only Grace Farson.

It’s hard to transition back into the real world, but we did have a magical holiday. Guion, however, is now sick again and I have probably the busiest week ever at work–which is why this post was written in advance.

Snax with leftover holiday honey-baked ham:

This Is Insane. Snow kind of makes me cranky when I have to travel, but I have to look on the bright side: At least we don’t live HERE, wherever this is. A time-lapse video of a blizzard. (Dooce)

Frost (24). Winter in France. (Flora Douville)

Satomi Kawakita. Such delicate, beautiful jewelry. If only I had $1,180 lying around for a ring… (All the Mountains)

Making Amends with the Guy Upstairs. The sweetest–and possibly most heart-breaking–prayer from a child. (FOUND Magazine)

The Year Kenny Loggins Ruined Christmas. It’s just… amazing. I have no other words. Childhood Christmas memories illustrated in MS Paint? It’s the greatest. (Hyperbole and a Half)

Hark, a Vagrant: 292. Hunks in the war and The Yellow Wallpaper! I am endlessly enthralled with Kate Beaton’s work. (Hark, a Vagrant!)

Pomeranian puppies. Don’t like little dogs, but these little fluff-balls are killing me. When they bark? Just sounds like a flock of chickadees. (Cute Overload)

Quote, a Waste of Eliza Dushku’s Talent. I love the Hylton family. (Mixed with Gold)

Holiday Slideshow. Slideshow of the annual door decorating contest at UNC Press, where I was an intern my senior year. I really miss these people. (UNC Press)

Natalie Portman in Vogue: Behind the Scenes. I think she is one of the most beautiful women alive and I love hearing her talk. I’m also looking forward to seeing and being thoroughly creeped out by “Black Swan.” Anyone want to go see it with me? (Faye Dinsmore)

Lars Wastfelt. Absolutely gorgeous and sweet family photographs from, of course, a Scandinavian photographer. I know, I have a type. (Miss Moss)

We’ll meet again soon, and I’ll start talking about my Top 10 Books of 2010. I know you’re thrilled.
