Just a few hours separate me from Thanksgiving break. Let’s go!
I saw this Wal Mart sweater on Simply Small Town’s blog and had to add to cart. I’ve had a very “add to cart” kind of week. I’m trying to finish up Christmas presents. I don’t have that many people to buy for, so I want to have that checked off so I can enjoy all the festivities. Anyway, I had to reward myself for being so productive by buying myself a sweater. Obvi. And I still love my faux leather leggings from Express.
Most of the time, it’s the little things that make your day. This pumpkin bread from a student was a favorite.
I lost my mind the other day and bought myself a new rug for my living room. It bothered me that my other rug wasn’t quite big enough, and it was looking quite dingy (it didn’t help that Caroline’s twins recently spilled guac on it). This rug from Amazon had great reviews and was on sale. I love it! It has really cozied up my living room.
Taylor Swift has provided the soundtrack to my life for the past week. I can’t stop listening to Red (Taylor’s Version), and I’m obsessed with her new songs on the album.
I’m glad Kat’s Thanksgiving break is starting because I thought she was about to start spiraling like Michael does in the Safety Training episode.
I texted her Monday and asked for a picture of something, and she responded with, “How ’bout a noose?” Eeeeesh.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, all my favorites today are holiday related. What could be better?
Annie and Ellie had their Thanksgiving feast on Wednesday. These two didn’t have any clue what was going on, but it sure was cute.
Claire had hers on Thursday with chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-A-just like the pilgrims.
We decorated our Christmas tree this week. One of my favorite things we do aka that I do is getting the girls a new ornament every year. This was the first year Claire understood and was excited to see what I got for her.
When we decorated, I pulled these out that I just started last year but thankfully had all one from each year saved. I put our cards from years past in frames to pull out each year. Oh my word, talk about Christmas emotions. Even my husband who is a true man and never notices anything like this commented how much he liked it. I recommend you doing it too. Also, my sermon for today is to never stop sending Christmas cards. Don’t think social media suffices for me seeing your family. No, I want them on a card, and I want to get it in the mail. It is one of my very favorite parts of the season. I’ll give you my address if you want to send me one of your family’s.
Enjoy a nice, restful weekend, everyone. One more week until America is running amok trying to get lightning deals on Dyson vacuums. ‘Tis the season.
