That was a fast month! November is behind us, and December, with all its craziness, is knocking at the door. And, for the first time in my adult life - actually my entire life - I have a lot of gifts already under my tree. There is still plenty to do, but I've made an impressive start. :-) Here is my "Life Around the Lane" post for November. A little bit of this and that, and a few personal notes, too. 

  • After using the same stockings for probably about 25 years, and with the disapproval of my kids, I finally swapped them out for these from Everlasting Inspired Living. They look even better in person and were only$15. You can shop online, and for my local readers who may not be familiar with the shop, it's in downtown Northport. You can also follow them on Instagram here. I've had them monogramed, and I'll show you my Chirstmas mantle once it's all done. 

  • This is one of my favorite designers, and he has two "beautiful" books that I use to gather inspiration and ideas from all the time. I had a request this year for coffee table books from my daughter, and I ordered her this one. It's a great price right now, too.  Definitely check into it if you are a blue and white lover. (Yes, she reads the blog, so... spoiler.)
  • I'm still loving these bracelets from Amazon that I shared in October's "Life Around the Lane". They would make a really good gift or an even better stocking stuffer. They come in a pretty little box, and I get asked about them often.   
  • Today is the last day for 50% off EVERYTHING at Old Navy when you order online. If you are looking for sweaters, they have plenty. I need to mention this one to Santa.  

  • Have a man in your life who could use new socks? Here you go. The man in my life swears by these. Not all that exciting, but sometimes you have to buy the unexciting basics. 
  • I would like to announce that I made cornbread for the first time ever this month! It received a thumbs up. Like all my good recipes, it was shared with me by my friend Staci. This is the skillet I bought over a year ago, and sadly, I'm just now getting around to using it. 
  • I started this Netflix series during my Thanksgiving break. I'm liking it so far. It's science fiction, but the alien invaders do not dominate the plot. It revolves around a family and their new way of life after a devastating invasion. Have you watched it?
  • The sister of my daughter-in-law got married this month. It was a gorgeous weekend, and an even prettier wedding. 
Mr. Woodbank, me, my daughter-in-law, and my oldest son. 
  • And finally, the baby turned 21. I'm not sure how it happened so fast... (Insert crying face here.)

That about sums up November...
