Checking In

It's been a minute since the last time I talked to all of you. The holiday season is here and I have never been more busy in my life! This is one of the best times of the year, I'm just trying to soak it all in. If you follow me on my other social media I post regularly (especially Instagram!) so you can keep up with me on a daily basis, if you'd like. Don't worry, I don't plan to slow down or stop updating here! I love it way too much. This is my happy place, y'all. Okay, let's talk about Thanksgiving! First of all I hope everyone enjoyed a blessed meal with the people you cherish most. I decided to host this year... and I gotta publicly announce that I have under appreciated my family for the past twenty five years. Single handedly putting together a holiday meal is unbelievably stressful. I have never in my life cooked a turkey, but after a little research and advice from family....I made the most tender, juicy turkey I've ever eaten. I'm not even going to act like I'm not proud of myself because Lord knows I was stressing about it for days. I started cooking TWO DAYS before Thanksgiving and still spent nine hours in the kitchen. It was so worth it once my family arrived and we were at the table together! I was so in the moment I didn't take half of the pictures I wanted to, but I have plenty of memories to cherish.

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am for Elizabeth's first Christmas. This week we plan to go do the bulk of our Christmas shopping, which is super exciting! I could possibly have a baby gift guide coming up.... stay tuned! We took the boys last night to see a local holiday lights show. I've been going for years so it was really fun to include our little people. Afterwards we baked sugar. Cookies while we watched home alone. The boys have never seen it, so Kevin fascinated them! We are going to put up our own lights this weekend... I don't do heights in any capacity so that is all on Brandon. Say a prayer for him! I will definitely share the finished product with all of you. On an unrelated note...we have added a new member to our family! A gorgeous six month old kitten named Duchess is currently running our house. She was abandoned by my moms neighbors, they moved and just left her outside. My mom took her in but isn't home enough to have a pet.... and here we are. In all honestly she's probably the most laid back cat I've ever met. She's cuddly, loves the kids and sleeps most of the day. Now if I could just get her to stop climbing my Christmas tree! Any suggestions? Alright y'all I've rambled long enough. I just wanted to touch base and check in. Like I said, I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving! As always, thank you for reading. God Bless.
