Can I just say I haven't been this excited since my wedding?! Okay okay. Maybe I'm not that excited. But definitely half. Yes. Half excited.
It's THANKSGIVING WEEK!! I know I know.... I posted all about Christmas last time... but that's because it's so silly to put all the beautiful decor up for just a month! Heck, it gets cold, it's going up! So, putting christmas aside for the week (sorry Santa)... it's the week of turkey, family and football!!!!!!!!!
I have a few goals for this week. First, to try EVERYTHING. I've never had stuffing. Mostly because I don't really know whats inside and that scares me. Sometimes, I am still like a little kid that examines EVERYTHING thats going in my mouth. I don't want to accidently eat that darn onion or pickle!!!! Secondly... I'm going to balance out eating and exercising. Yeah right? Seriously. (okay probably exercising might include walking around the plaza, but hey.... its hard stuff).
So in honor of Thanksgiving..... my chalk board wall:
What? There's only a few things written on there? Oh and they're all in my handwriting and none from my husband?
Okay FINE! Maybe I just now made it... I'm a little behind, but I'll keep it up through Christmas deal?! Yeah that means I just drew it, took a picture and put it on my blog. I've been a little busy! *note...messy kitchen.
On to further news, I can now put my hair in a mini ponytail.
Would you like to see?
I am thankful for bobby pins and hairspray.

Why do I all of a sudden feel warm and wanting when I see those dumb Kay commercials?
Yeah... those common and cheesy "embrace necklace" commercials or diamond earrings for Christmas stories......
I just start imagining my husband getting me something special for Christmas and it's one of the best feelings I've ever imagined....
You worked on me.
I never thought it would happen.
There is so much Christmas happening in my home today. Not only is it Jason's birthday so a lot of cooking is going on (duh... cooking= Christmas), but i raided Hobby Lobby & Target for some fantaaaaastic Christmas touches.
Hey, it's our first Christmas.
You gotta do what you gotta do ;)
Unfortunately that means there is glitter and tree bristles allllllllll over the floor.
My husband (aka Danny Tanner) is not going to like this when he gets home.

This is more than costumes and crafts.
This is more than things of the day.
This is about love.
This is about God.
Read and be challenged.
Read and be blessed.
Frederick Buechner writes in The Magnificent Defeat
The love for equals is a human thing-- of friend for friend, brother for brother. It is to love what is loving and lovely. The world smiles. The love for the less fortunate is a beautiful thing- the love for those who suffer, for those who are poor, the sick, the failures, the unlovely. This is compassion, and it touches the heart of the world. The love for the more fortunate is a rare thing-- to love those who succeed where we fail, to rejoice without envy with those who rejoice, the love of the poor for the rich, of the black man for the white man. The world is always bewildered by its saints. And then there is the love for the enemy-- love for the one who does not love you but mocks, threatens, and inflicts pain. The tortured's love for the torturer. This is God's love.
It conquers the world.
Just something I'm working on personally.
