We still friends?
Figured I'd update the ol' lonesome blog.
Lots has happened since we last spoke.
Got fall pics taken with my cutie pie. This is only a sneak peek. ;)
Visited my alma mater.
Had a reunion with my college besties.
Assigned a really cute turkey assignment to my kiddos: Persuasive essay on why NOT to eat their turkey for Thanksgiving.
Watched (almost) every single episode of Mad Men. Pure addiction.
And that brings us to date. Where I am furiously looking up recipes on Pinterest and allrecipes.com, digging out all my pots and bakeware, and heading to the grocery store to prepare for our very first time HOSTING Thanksgiving!
Have a safe, happy, filling, and RESTFUL Thanksgiving!!!

I mean, of course I want to be that cute hostess/wife/future mom who has an abundance of crafty holiday DIY projects all over the house.
And I'm an elementary teacher. So I desperately want to and always have every intention of getting into the holiday spirit for all holidays.
However, let's be honest. I usually huff and puff and grunt and growl while I'm dusting off the holiday decor, setting up for parties, and digging through my cookbooks to try to find holiday recipes that wow.
But I get really get grumpy when holidays jump the gun and stores start preparing us 3-4 months in advance. Like when it's August, and they already start playing Christmas music. Ugh.
I think things just sneak up on me. And I get a little overwhelmed. Because I'm a perfectionist. And everything has to be perfect. Obvi.
But this year, my friends, I am already in the Christmas spirit. And it's not even Thanksgiving! It could be because this is our first year with our own house to decorate.
Or it could be because I spent an hour and a half at Hobby Lobby with my mom this weekend because all Christmas decor was 50% off.
Or because we got professional pics taken for our Christmas cards, so holiday spirit is on my radar.
But for now I'm going to put on the brakes. At least until all this Halloween candy settles...

I'm in a fabulous mood.
It is 9:48 p.m., and although I'm just now getting home from a long day, I'm going to blog and hit the sheets.
No work!I'm on this new kick.
