Happy Homemaker Monday - November 25, 2013

Hello everyone.  How was your weekend?

I had a wonderful birthday.  Hubby surprised me with a trip to Banff.  I thought we were staying in Canmore and would go cross country skiing, but he surprised me with a stay at the Banff Springs Hotel and a couples spa package.  It was wonderfully relaxing.
