Thanksgiving Week + Wish List

We attempted our mini-Thanksgiving dinner over the weekend - attempted being the keyword.  Ellie was asleep by the time we sat down to eat and the food was getting cold.  Ironic since the day before I had said that all I wanted was for the three of us to sit down together and have a nice dinner without the usual mealtime bouncing off the walls shenanigans.  In Tyler's words, or maybe they're Ellen Griswold's, "you set standards that no family activity can live up to." ;)  We'll be headed to visit family on Thursday and I have a feeling that it'll be a little bit more successful.  It'll be a busy day but we are so excited to see everyone!  The rest of the weekend will probably be pretty low-key.  I'm looking forward to our Black Friday tradition of watching Christmas Vacation + we will also be getting a (likely very tiny) Christmas tree, contrary to Tyler's wishes and really any common sense.  Baby tree will be riding shotgun in my car to it's new home just three weeks later! ;)  I would also love to make a dent in our Christmas shopping this weekend... from my laptop in my pajamas. :)

Since there's not a whole lot that I actually need (read: nothing), I don't plan on doing much Black Friday shopping for myself but thought I'd share a few things that have been on my wish list anyway.  I can't really call this a gift guide since it's really just a list of things that I personally would love, but maybe it will help you cross someone off your list or pick up a present for yourself! ;)

I hope you all have the best Thanksgiving week + holiday spent with the people you love the most!
