Thanksgiving 2011

Hi Friends! Happy Hump Day!  Did you think I had forgotten about you?  I promise I've not - but man, when things get crazy in my world - they get NUTS! *sigh*  Anyway, I wanted to share a few pictures of our Thanksgiving holiday.  I hope you and your family had a wonderful and blessed holiday weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Hump Day my friends!  I am not sure what tomorrow is going to hold and how early my day will start, so I wanted to get a jump on the holiday and wish you and your family a very wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving Day early.  I am at work today but am taking off at noon and am SO EXCITED!  I am going to go home, grab a bottle (or two) of my favorite wine and start dragging my Christmas decorations down and turn on my Christmas music and start decorating my house!  We are going to my aunt's house tomorrow and I am only responsible for cooking our family's hashbrown casserole so I am getting off easy this year! WOO HOO!!! 

Remember to be thankful for all of the good things that God has blessed you with. I know I am thankful for you, my wonderful readers, and friends.  I am thankful for my job, my family, my closest of friends and for all of the good and bad things that have happened in my life to make me appreciate just how wonderful I have it and how much God has blessed me and my family.  So...... for your entertainment - here are a few cute Thanksgiving photos I thought I would share:

Thanks for stopping by to say hello and have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving Day and an even better weekend ahead.

Lots of love and hugs,

Job Changes and the Birthday Girl

Happy Monday morning everyone!  Hope you had an awesome weekend.  Ours was great here - started out with my beloved HOGS playing on Saturday and kicking MAJOR BUTT to catapult them into the Top 3 in the AP and BCS polls!!!  WOOT WOOT!!!  This Friday we play LSU and I think our boys are going to kick some MORE major bootie and I am looking forward to it!!! 

Today, I have started working in a totally new position here at my office and I am extremely excited and already feel like a major weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  I decided to leave the paralegal position (which I sat at for 8 hours a day being bored out of my mind) and take a different position downstairs as a floater assistant.  Meaning, when an assistant is off on vacation, etc., I will be one of the ones filling their spot while they are gone.  I much prefer the assitant type of work as opposed to the paralegal work.  I LOATHED that position and am so happy that my firm chose to keep me and place me somewhere else instead! :)

And... today is my "baby" girl's 18th birthday and it makes me SO SAD!  She decided to go live with her biological dad (about an hour away) when she turned 18 and so this weekend she moved in down there - yesterday to be exact.  She wants to graduate from the same high school that her dad and I did among other family members.  I hated that she did it during the middle of her Senior Year but her dad wouldn't let her come live there until she turned 18 for some strange reason.  It was a very bittersweet weekend needless to say.  :(  But, she and I had a great time this weekend doing Christmas shopping among other things together.  Yesterday we went to Hot Springs and hung out with my mom, sister and niece and that was a lot of fun too.


Well, thanks for stopping by to say hello and please let me know you were here.  Also, please fill me in on your upcoming Thanksgiving plans - I can't wait to hear all about that and how your weekends were.

Lots of love and hugs,

Pinterest - Thanksgiving Wreath

Happy Monday my friends!  How are you? Great, I hope!  How was your weekend?  Ours was good but I felt kind of puny most of the time and am not a lot better right now, but still had to schlep on into work - blah.

On Saturday we had a yard sale and during that time, I decided to go ahead and make my wreath to place on my door for the Thanksgiving holidays and I really like the way it turned out!  Take a look and tell me what YOU think:

In case you're wondering - the idea came from Pinterest - like most of my ideas lately - HA!  Do you pinterest?  If so, please follow me and I will follow you back!

So... other than making a wreath, having a yard sale, and watching my beloved HOGS play and WIN this weekend, I didn't do much else since I was puny feeling.  What did you do?  Anything fun and exciting?  Can't wait to hear all about it and catch up on your blogs! 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to say hello! :)

Lots of love and hugs,

Happy Friday my friends!  Just a quick note to say THANK YOU to all of our wonderful Vets out there for all of their sacrifice in keeping us safe and protected and for our freedom.

Please be sure and thank a Veteran today if you get a chance.  Have a wonderfully blessed weekend and thanks for stopping by to say hello!

Lots of Love and hugs,

Hello... anyone still around????

Hello my wonderful friends!  I know it has been over a week and a half since you've last heard anything from me, and I'm sorry.  Things at home are just tough right now in various ways and blogging has just taken a backseat to it all.  We've had someone stalking us from out of state that my husband used to work with and she is causing all kinds of havoc.  We've had to change our home numbers and our cell numbers for the 2nd time and it's just plain ridiculous!  On top of that, my 17 yo daughter (who turns 18 in 2 weeks) has decided she wants to go live with her biological dad in another town to finish out her senior year - which makes me very, very sad. :( 

Anyway, I hope to be back to my regular scheduled blogging soon.  I am off to catch up on your blogs now.  Hope things in your neck of the woods are much better than over here in mine.  I'm extremely sad and can't seem to shake this dark cloud that has been hovering over me the last 6 months. *sigh*

Thanks for stopping by to say hello and please let me know you were here!

Lots of love and hugs,
