thanks for thanksgiving ... & now back to work

why are holiday weekends all-too-short?
oh well! it was spectacular while it lasted ...
we had A LOT of napping, tv watching, eating, hanging-out-together, tickle-fights, book-browsing, snack-eating, mimosa-and-baileys-n-coffee-drinking ... ahh, the list could go on and on ...
we hit up one of the last UH football games of the season ... tulane v. UH ... we won. oh yay! hopefully those point-shaving rumors will soon be put-to-rest.

who's ready for some warrior football?? kaleo ALWAYS is!!

and then, so quickly, our splendid long holiday weekend ended! and back to the grind again ... but still (& always), so much to be thankful for ...
... i see the end of my thesis in sight 
... i purchased my grad cap & gown
... i'm going to walk in my graduation (for the 1st time) on december 17th
... i found my wedding dress (too bad the store hasn't placed the order yet)
... in 9 days, i will be pau with classes (well, at least until i decide to get my PhD)
... christmas songs on at work & in the car
... time for serious holiday decorating
... it's cold enough at night that i can wear snuggly pjs AND hog the blankets 
... we have a little boy that is simply too cute for words
... i have a fiancee who loves me better than i could have ever wish for 
... tomorrow's work schedule isn't as insane as yesterday's was!
... i have a PILE of FUN books to read ... in 10 days!!!!

thanksgiving - part 1

YAY!! the holidays are here ... i've been SO looking forward to this weekend.
it's been such a crazy busy year, i have been so anxious to have a few days with my family, lounging in our pjs, puttering in our kitchen, just hanging out together and enjoying our little life blessings. 

i love cooking a thanksgiving feast ... even if it is only for 3 people ...
well, this year, i'm cooking a feast for 3 3/4 people. and so the preparations have begun!

so many menu ideas ... only tomorrow will tell what the final menu will be

i am a list maker ... that doesn't mean that i'm a list follower, but i do make lists. 
then i keep my fingers crossed, follow my whims and hope that everything turns out for the best

we also have holiday projects to work on ... cards, ornaments, scrapbook pages,
sewing patterns, picture organization, thesis completion ... oh my! the list is quite extensive

it'll be a busy home day ... but we're going to be busy burrowing in to our home and being
thankful for all that we have and who we love.

happy thanksgiving to you and yours!
