Of course this Momma was loving having the family together over Thanksgiving!!  I’m remembering the conversations, the inside jokes, the stories and the laughter that happened during that day!

WHAT I’M LOVING…

Spending my days with this furry girl- dog hair and all!!

When we thought we were going to have to make a life or death decision about our sweet Bella a few weeks ago, and then she was suddenly OK, we are seeing every day as a gift with her! She’s feeling great!!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO…or should I say what I’VE been up to!!

Surfing!!!  Yes, surfing the internet- Pinterest to be exact!  Truth be told, I have no talent for decorating and we have a fireplace mantel that needs to be Christmafide! (yes, I made up that word.)  I found some really, really cute mantels to copy, because that is exactly what I do- COPY!!  Here are a few that I thought were cute!

WHAT I’M WORKING ON…

Getting Christmas lists from all of the kids!!

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT…

Having both Christmas trees up in the house and being able to see them from the road!

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING…

Christmas time means Christmas Movies!  A friend recommended a movie on Netflix called “Back to Christmas.”  It’s a really cheesy, sappy and predictable movie, but I loved it!!

Of course, our family watches Survivor on Wednesday nights. I really wish they would go back to eating bugs and playing trivia for challenges instead of always running the beach through obstacle courses and bathing in sand every week- Yuck!!

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO…

Podcasts!!  I look forward to getting dressed and ready for the day because I get to listen to a podcast! Last year I was deeply involved in “Up and Vanished”- an unsolved murder that was solved due to the podcast!!  I also listen to the Organize 365 podcast as I try to de-clutter my life!  Chalene Johnson is another inspirational podcaster that I have recently started listening to…

FINALLY, I’m allowing myself to listen to Christmas Music!  My daughter, on the other hand has been imbibing in the holiday tunes since the beginning of November!

WHAT I’M WEARING…

Leggings and jeans are my staple of choice these days. Still can’t convince myself to wear a coat yet…OH, and I’ve switched to my favorite Winter perfume (Gucci 2)and put the flowery Summer fragrances away for now!

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND…

Before the holiday season starts to really wind up, we get together with some church friends for dinner.  This year we are hosting!! We usually meet at a restaurant, but we’re meeting at our house this weekend! Also, Hubs and I are attending a fundraiser for an awesome charity called Safe Families for Children...what a great ministry!

Hubby is also headed to a college basketball game this weekend too, which means a girlie lunch with this one…if she doesn’t already have plans, ya know!! Oh, the life of a busy teenager!!IMG_5641

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH…

Hello??  Christmas!!  And the mess, games, the people, and the food!! (this was last year!!)

WHAT ELSE IS NEW…

I’m TRYING to grow out my hair into a different style.  Ladies, I’m sure you understand my frustration!  It’s getting to a length where I’m having to apply products and back comb (Unsuccessfully) and it’s taking longer than 20 minutes for me to get ready in the morning.  I don’t know….do I have the patience to stick out the process??  and could someone give me a good backcombing lesson??  =)
