What we're eating this week:
Wahoo for Thanksgiving week!!
Monday: We had dinner out with Bowen's bestie and her family.
Tuesday: We visited Tab's family in East Texas for a little early Thanksgiving.
Wednesday: I usually make a soup every year the night before Thanksgiving. This year Shay's Chicken Tortilla Soup is what's being served.
Thursday: THANKSGIVING MEAL!!
Friday: Is Bowen's birthday! Our plan is to have a fun lunch out and then eat leftovers at home for dinner.
What I'm Reminiscing About:
Thanksgiving three years ago...our last holiday as a family of four because Bowen arrived four days later.
What I'm Loving:
I'm loving there is NO SCHOOL this week!! We've stayed up WAY past our bedtime every day and have loved every minute of it.
What We've Been Up To:
A couple weekends ago, we decorated for Christmas! Since then the bottom half of the tree's lights have stopped working...NNNNNOOOOO!!! :)
What I'm Dreading:
Just yesterday we began work on this front fireplace. The guys came to demo it...holy mess! I can't wait to see how it turns out...we're going for a more Texas-y stone fireplace look. But...I'm dreading all the mess until it's all complete.
What I'm Working On:
Apparently, we're in full renovation mode over here!!
What's been done this month: *Wallpaper came down
*Walls got textured and painted
*I bought two chairs for the ends of the dining room table
*Powder Bathroom got wallpapered.
*Front fireplace is beginning demo.
This is what's still on my list to get those three rooms finished...
*Hang canvases in dining room
*Change light fixture and hardware in powder bath.
*Purchase furniture, rug, and a few more goodies for the front room.
Then the Slaughters will probably take a bit of a break. So our pocketbook can rest. :)
What I'm Excited About:
EEK!!! I love all things twinkling and cozy so I'm pumped about getting to enjoy it all with my family.
What I'm watching/reading:
I'm currently reading Girl Meets Change (almost finished) and See Jane Run (just started). And I'm watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Those girls can get me hooked so fast!
What I'm Listening To:
We're in full-on Christmas music mode at our house!!!
What I'm Wearing:
What I'm Doing This Weekend:
Our town has the cutest little Christmas celebration the weekend following Thanksgiving. (But it might rain...waaahhh!) We're excited about going again this year AND BOWEN TURNS THREE!!! We have some fun things planned for his big day!
What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:
*ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS*
*Seeing our Missouri Family
*Fun with friends
*Driving around looking at Christmas lights
*All the warm drinks
*Holiday Dance Recitals
Give me ALL of it!! :)
Happy Wednesday, Girls!!
