Another week gone by. Where does the time go? Thanksgiving is this Thursday!!!! I'm so excited because Thanksgiving is for real, my favorite meal of the year. I love the turkey and stuffing, sweet potatoes, squash, cranberry sauce....the whole nine yards! I wait all year for it. This holiday is all about family and eating. What could be better?
This past week was a good one. On Friday night I took John to see Wonder. Have you seen it yet? If you haven't, pleeeeeease go see it. It was absolutely wonderful! John and I read the book over the summer as part of his summer reading. We loved the book and were looking forward to the movie adaption. It did not disappoint us. It's such a heartwarming story. I cried happy/sad tears the whole way through.
This was our pre movie treat.....
It's hot chocolate season! Yaaaaay!
Looking over last week's to-do list, I think I did pretty well. It brings me so much satisfaction checking things off a list. Even if it's something as simple as laundry (which, let's face it, is never done!).
One thing I haven't done yet is decorate for Christmas! Last year at this time I already had my tree up. Time has gotten away from me this season. However, I've been swooning over my favorite blogs/twitter/and Instagram at all my friends who are sharing their holiday décor. Some of my neighbors have lights up outside their homes and my favorite radio station is now Christmas music central. I love it!!!! Saturday will be THE day. I did do a little more Christmas shopping this weekend though and I'm feeling good about that. Behind the scenes Santa's elves have already started working their magic. The most wonderful time of year is upon us! : )
So here is last week's to-do's. Let's see how I did!
This is half done. I decided on the picture but Walgreens extended their sale. I'll order this week. See what a procrastinator I am!
*Start decorating for Christmas - Not yet! Looks like Saturday is the day!
Our box for Operation Christmas Child!
I hope some little boy will be happy with the goodies inside!
Here is my new list for the week. Holiday weeks are always choppy. Everything revolves around Thursday. I don't have too many expectations for the rest of the week.... especially Friday : )
*Dismiss John early on Monday for a dental appointment
*Work Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday
*Bake dessert and appetizer to bring to Thanksgiving at Rob's cousins house
*Order Christmas cards
*Distribute John's school picture to family on Thanksgiving
*Watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade over breakfast on Thursday morning
*Put my tree up and decorate
*Get outside and walk
*Hot water and lemon each morning
Happy new week dear friends! Wishing you crunchy leaves under your feet and pumpkin pie for breakfast!
Sounds good to me! xo
