Our Weekend

Can you believe it's Thanksgiving week?! Yeah, me either.  We had a very quiet weekend at home (surprise, surprise).  Our Christmas cards came in the mail last week and I'm so happy with how they came out! I ended up getting most of them together this weekend so they can go out in the mail next week. :) 
Miss Ellie is really close to leaving scooting in the dust and crawling around. Not sure how I feel about her crawling coinciding with Christmas tree season... sounds like trouble to me. ;) We really didn't do a whole lot this weekend, but I did (almost) finish cleaning out my closet like I mentioned a few weeks (or months?) ago!  I still need some more hangers to call it complete, but I did organize my clothes by color so I'm pretty happy with that - it's the little things, right?  While there is still room for improvement in the clutter department, I will be donating nine trash bags full of clothes and shoes so I feel good about that, too. :)

The weekend flew by like it always seems to, but I'm happy it's a short week and we will be celebrating with our families on Thursday.  We're eating dinner at my parents' house and then going to Tyler's sisters' house for dessert.  We're supposed to be bringing a dessert, but I haven't decided what yet.  I've got a few things in mind  (like these super easy + delicious Reese's PB cup cookies that have already been Noel family approved) but always welcome suggestions if you have something you love!  Preferably not pie because they have a few of those planned already. :)  

Oh, and did anyone see that Verizon "happy thanksgetting" commercial this weekend and think it's super obnoxious?  It reminded me how much I dislike the crazy Black Friday shopping scene - specifically Black Friday shopping that starts on Thanksgiving.  Now, that doesn't mean I don't peruse the sales online on Friday, at home, in my pjs... I just don't think running out to the stores Thanksgiving night is really what the day is all about. But what do I know? :)  I hope you and all of your loved ones are able to celebrate + spend time together this week! Happy Monday, guys!
