I sort of realized over the past week that when people post what they are thankful for on Facebook throughout November and on Thanksgiving Day specifically I often skim over them with a quick glance barely stopping to read.  I mostly know what it's going to say.
They are thankful for their family and/or friends!

When life gives you lemons...

When life gives you lemons...make Lemon-aid!  Well that's how the saying goes anyway.  In our case this year the saying is When life give you a busy schedule...decorate early for Christmas!  I'm generally kind of a stickler for not decorating for Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving simply because I love my Fall decor.  I love the warm colors and yummy scents. And I just finished and hung my fall wreath.

Fun Fill(ed) in the Blank Friday!

I'm actually on time this week so that's a plus! I've had a pretty good week.  One of the highlights has been editing photos from this past weekend.  Here are a couple for a little sneak peak.

Make-It-up Monday on repeat

Well darn it. I missed it again. Fill-in-the-Blank Friday is becoming a repeat on Make-it-Up Monday. Better late than never??? I hope.  As I read through these questions quickly I felt like they are going to be challenging to answer.  I'm not really sure why I felt so much pressure... it's not like there is a right answer or something.  Hope you enjoy and happy Monday!

Workplace Evil

I've been making a list for a while of things people do in the work place that should never be done in the work place.  So as you can image I have actually observed these things happening.  And while most of my friends (therefore probably readers) are SAHM (Stay at Home Mommies) and deal with grosser things I hope they and anyone reading this will at least appreciate/relate to one of these ridiculous behaviors from adults.

Make-it-Up Monday

I took the day off from "normal" life this past Friday.  I left all my usual responsibilities for another day and I headed to Canton Trade Days with my Mom, Sister-in-law and Nephew (his 14 months so he didn't mind).  We shopped for bargain deals and we found some great finds and steals-of-deals :)  It was so fun and I can't wait to post pictures of the projects I will be creating.

We found some Harry Potter glasses and we just couldn't not (yeah it's a double negative... it's that intense) try them on!  Haha they were awesome and Mom was a good sport.
She's gonna kill me for posting this.

Halloween Happenings

This year Phil and I decided to join in the neighborhood festivities and pass out candy to all the trick-or-treaters.  I bought two giant bags of candy at Sam's, one chocolate, one chewy-sour. So we dressed the dogs in costumes and headed outside to greet all the kiddos in costume.  Arden was a hot dog complete with mustard and Buster was... well the only thing I could find in the house to put on him was this giant sombrero.  He hated it but the kids in the neighborhood loved it and called him a Mariachi dog!  haha.

One kid said, "Oh! A Mariachi dog...where's the guitar?"  Phil said, "A guitar would be too much for him." and the kid said, "Ah well it's all about the voice and the looks!"  

Then we were joined by our friends Brittany and Isaiah so the guys left the fun and went inside to play Madden...boooo.  Anyway, us girls had a dandy time watching the kids.

So many were so cute and so fun - others were rude but all in all I enjoyed the evening.
