A Lovely Little Thanksgiving

If you don't already know this...Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday - mainly because all you have to do is maybe some cooking, a lot of eating, and spend time with family (three of my favorite things). This year was a little less crazy than in the past. We had a few less dinners to go to and didn't even have to travel. It was different, but good. My dad smoked a turkey and I made dressing for the first time. Michael's family came up from Louisiana and did some successful deer hunting.

I probably have over more than half of my Christmas shopping done for the season. I bought my wrapping paper and ribbon which all ended up matching my Christmas cards I bought before Halloween. I didn't do any "real" Black Friday shopping (by real I mean the 4AM kind), although I did end up getting some good deals. One of the best deals I got was actually on me and Michael's present to ourselves this year. We are upgrading our crappy camera to the Canon Rebel T1i. I can't be more excited. I actually had to order it from the store, but it will be on my doorstep via free shipping by Wednesday. The only problem is....I have no idea how to work it!

I've also been thinking about what all I have to be thankful for this year. First and foremost, I am thankful for my husband who loves me and works hard to provide for us. I'm thankful that we haven't had to make any major sacrifices even though I have been out of work for this last part of the year.

We are blessed to have such wonderful friends and family who give us wonderful advice and provide great company. I'm also thankful that we get to move closer to a majority of those great folks as well.

We are thankful for and forever indebted to our parents who have so eagerly provided us with a place to stay while we are trying to move even though I know it has turned their "normal" as upside down as it has turned ours.

Most of all, I'm thankful for life and just being blessed enough to experience it and everything it brings with it.


  1. That new camera is going to be awesome. I need a new one, maybe I'd be more inspired to take more pictures!

  2. I had that camera (it got stolen) and there is a guide that you can buy from amazon for it. I love a smoked turkey! Hope you had a great holiday!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
