Happy 25th Birthday to the most amazing sister in the entire world!!
I am so incredibly blessed to have a sister and the special bond that only sisters have! Although, growing up we may have had our moments of fighting over clothes and the phone, I wouldn't trade those moments for anything.
I love you so and cannot wait to see you next week!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I hope you did too! We headed to Central VA Wednesday afternoon to spend Thursday morning/early afternoon with my parents. We started the morning off with a delicious, home cooked, southern breakfast and followed it up with a hike along Skyline Drive. It was beautiful morning, sunny and in the 50s, and the perfect activity before pigging out. Late afternoon we headed to my in-laws for the Thanksgiving meal with hub's family and our niece and two nephews.
Saturday we ventured to the mall just before midnight for about a half hour. Just long enough to see all the crazies lined up around the buildings waiting to be let in. I swear that's the best part, forget shopping, seeing all the crazies was a hoot. That's not to say I didn't take full advantage of the Cyber Monday, or Cyber Week, deals. As of today I am more than half way done with my Christmas shopping -- yay!
I plan to tackle Christmas cards and wrapping the gifts this week and then I'll be done(!) and able to fully enjoy the Christmas season.
I'm a southern girl at heart, raised on the ways and gentle kindness of a small town Southern man; living in a not-so-southern, too fast paced city that I share a love-hate relationship with. I'm completely type A and love shopping, eating, volunteering, all things Lilly, St. Jude, my family and I desire to be an amazing cook and housewife, just like my mom (Paula Deen's twin) one day when I have a kitchen that doesn't require me to store half of it in a storage closet.
