just another day

at the playground!

I'm glad we enjoyed the shorts & t-shirt weather today b/c tomorrow it's gonna be cold!! Well, the high is 60, that's cold for us. :) Today was in the low 80's & it was NICE!

I wasn't gonna cook today, but I had to do something. :)
So I made this for breakfast. I woke Dan up at 9:30, he came out & promptly said I was supposed to let him sleep in. WHAT?! Oh, and that he didn't want breakfast. And then he went back to bed.

Oh well, I do try...

And the Cracker Barrel lunch didn't work out either b/c it was RIDICULOUSLY crowded. So we headed to a Cuban restaurant by there and enjoyed a lunch buffet there. The food was yummy, but it was strange.

So, that's my thanksgiving so far. Bahumbug! I need to get over my bad attitude.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

And by the way, the blueberry coffee cake was YUMMY!

I just happened to watch Rachel Ray about a week ago and saw her make these:


Oh Good Lord, did these look good!

I'll be making these over the weekend so I'll let you know how they turn out.

But, tomorrow we're eating out so no cooking or dishes for me!!

I hope my Finny will love on me like this 30 years from now... aww, so sweet, Dan lovin' on his mother. :) I could so black mail him with this picture too, although I won't...

Here's Finn & his DeDe looking through the sale adds making his Christmas list...

Here's a picture of us from last weekend's MADD banquet. Actually a pretty decent picture.

Who need's to make a Christmas list when boxes are SO much fun!?

We're hiding a neighbor's Christmas present in Finn's closet & this is the box it came in. He has just played & played with it.. Now he's made it into a slide.

Life here has been pretty good. We stay busy with our schedules. Always working opposite shifts & not seeing each other much get's old really fast. It's hard on a marriage. I won't lie. But, we do the best that we can & hope and pray one day Dan will be on day shift.

I'm hoping this will be a slow week this week for work. Dan has off Thursday & Friday where I only have off Thanksgiving this year. We're going to Cracker Barrel Thanksgiving day and then we'll do a big meal next weekend here at the house. My mother-in-love and I are planning our shopping strategy for Friday morning. Last year my dad & I headed out at 4, this year Target opens at 4. Yikes! I think we're only planning on going there & Academy. But, who knows???

I do believe that Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. I just love everything about it. I love Christmas but think it's sad how commercialized everything is & how it's all about present's. My parent's won't be coming down till January so we won't be seeing them at all for either holiday. I think that's a 1st. Sad. :(

Dan's working on the shower, it's ALMOST ready for tile. Like, next weekend ready. YAY! It's been a very slow process as he's been working overtime everyday & even some on the weekend's. But, it's finally getting there. I'll be sure to post a pic next weekend. I can not wait to see how it's going to look.

Well, gotta run, Dan's calling me for help. TATA!!

I have an unspoken prayer request I really need prayer for.
