T'was the night before Thanksgiving

Well, it's sort of a depressing holiday for me.  My daughter hasn't contacted me in about a month, which is breaking my heart to pieces.  My son is spending the Holiday with his dad which is nothing abnormal, but just leaves me feeling a little empty this holiday season.  Financially I couldn't see spending the money to make a big dinner.  Not sure if Thomas and I will go to his family's dinner or not at this point. We are making that decision tonight I guess.  I am fine if we go and visit with them or if we stay home either one.

 I am getting deeper and deeper into a funk. Haven't worked out like I planned this week but my "friend" came to visit this week and that will never be a good workout during the first few days because its damn near impossible to get a good workout feeling as bad as I do.   So, I am not going to beat myself up about it but it only ways heavier on my funky mood.  A good workout helps my lift spirit.

The girls and I at work had a feast today in celebration of Thanksgiving.
Prety nice lunch I would say! We had a fried turkey, dressing, tater salad, croissants, mac n cheese, corn, pears, cranberry sauce, strawberry pretzel salad and cookies.  :)
I am thankful for my best friend and partner in life Thomas. My son who is a teenager but I love him anyway :) My daughter who has seem to forgotten all about me, my dog even though he was a very bad boy yesterday, my home that is a bit cluttered and messy but very warm tonight, my job that is challenging but keeps me entertained during the day and the fact that I may be broke but the bills are paid.  I will be very thankful indeed for all of these things and many more.  I am thankful that even though I don't spend much time with my mom, she is still around to call tomorrow and let her know I am thankful for her. I am thankful that I get to see my Dad on Sunday and get talk to him frequently. I am thankful that Thomas has his hobby and things he enjoys in life.  I am thankful for all of my many blessings in this life, even if at times I feel the weight of the world on me, I know how blessed I am. 
I wish all my friends and family a very Happy Thanksgiving.

There is nothing better than a nice fireplace.

Besides of course having a nice extra large pizza with BACON by that ice fireplace.

The business woman... who desperately needs her hair colored!!! Do you see all that gray?

The baa fan who got her hair colored!

Happy 11 years!

Happy Anniversary to us!!!

He surprised me with a laptop a few weeks ago.  I bought a new fitbit and it wouldn't work with my previous laptop... I was totally frustrated after spending the money and waiting on it to come in that I still couldn't try it out.  He knew how disappointed I was and the next day when I came home from work there was a laptop sitting my seat.  :)

I didn't know what I was going to do for him for our anniversary as money is always an issue for me... but I put my creative juices to use and hooked up with my friend Jill who took some boudoir photos of me.  I sent those photos through the day to him, he seemed to enjoy them.  I then put a basket together with red hots, altoids, music cd's, lotion, candle and I wrapped it in bubble wrap.  I said this anniversary I wanted to wake up all of his senses.  The photos were for his visual sense, the cd's for his hearing, the lotion for touch (I was going to give him a massage but instead being the awesome guy he is he gave me one), the candle for the sense of smell and the redhots and altoids were for his sense of taste.  I added the bubble wrap for a shock effect haha I am silly but he seemed to like my cheesy gift ok.

He came home from work on our anniversary with beautiful red roses, a bottle of wine, two chocolate candy bars and two absolutely perfect cards.

Then he took me to dinner.  One of my favorite places is Fulin's.  It was delicious! :) And just check out our fortune, how could this night go wrong?  :)

Ultimately it was an absolutely wonderful evening with my guy. My best friend. The love of my life. My one true person.  Everyone needs a person that is their one true person. Someone that loves them despite if they fix there hair, put their make up on, make a mistake or have bad luck.  Someone that loves them regardless of anything.  I feel I have that in him, and that is priceless and something I will always cherish.

Happy anniversary to the man I adore!  I love you

Shrimp Boil

I had been wanting a shrimp boil for a while.  My guy and I decided what better time to have one than when Alabama is playing LSU!!!  We invited a few friends over and enjoyed a feast!

Oh yeah, ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!

Wow I really need to write more!!!

What all has been going on with me? Well, lots!

For starters I did start my new job and that is going well. I am getting use to the longer drive and starting to get into a groove with the new position. :)

My fitness, I have signed up for the Oak Barrel Half Marathon in April so that is what I am focused on as for my training now and I have a running buddy in Decatur now too, so this is AWESOME!!!

We have been enjoying Alabama Football most Saturdays! ROLL TIDE!!!

My son has finished his Freshman year of Football.  He is not doing as well as he could with his grades but his attitude has been more pleasant... we might survive the teenage years. :)

My dog is as awesome as ever!

My house is cozy and lived in.

The bills are paid.

All is well! :)
