I am in denial that tomorrow is December. HOW. Remember when school years would stretch on for eternity??? Third grade never seemed to end…. And now? I feel like I blink and entire month has gone by.
LAST WEEK’S WIN: I had such a great time having my parents and sister here for Thanksgiving! There was a lot to do to prep the meal and honestly sometimes I wonder if it’s even worth the work, but it was really quite nice! (Though I think I’m still team #getitcatered…)
THIS WEEK’S GOAL: Not complain about the early sunsets. HA! I swear I’m struggling with the early sunsets more than ever before. By 3:30, I’m ready to get into pajamas. At 5pm, I can’t believe it’s not midnight…. I’ve been complaining about it in my head and out loud to whomever will listen and I just need to, well, not.
I picked my parents up from the airport (this would be trip #1 of 4 to the airport!). We went out to lunch, got some stuff done at the house, went for a walk, and of course spent a lot of time snuggling and reuniting with Jack.
Spent the morning relaxing at home and getting a few things fixed. (Best part about having dads here.) And then my mom and I went to go pick up my sister from the airport. It turned into a whole experience. Was totally expecting the day before Thanksgiving would be a zoo, but this was even worse than I could have imagined. Somehow (miraculously) we found my sister and got home in one piece!
Spent the whole day frantically getting things ready for dinner. Mike was in charge of the turkeys, and our brother in law did the sides, and my mom and I made the rolls and desserts. A lot of work, but worth it!
Dropped my sister back off at the airport and then my parents and I went to get ramen. It was freezing and even started to hail. Hot ramen was fully necessary! Our town’s Christmas parade and tree lighting was in the evening and it was absolutely magical!
I sadly drove my parents to the airport. I went home and spent most of the day organizing and cleaning. I did sneak out for a pedicure, but otherwise it was rolled sleeves and deep cleaning.
Had a lazy day… but we got our Christmas tree!!!
Spent almost all of the day prepping for the week’s workload. I have to shoot a few things of content, so it was a good “behind the scenes” day.
