Some Thanksgiving-ish Confessions

I confess that I am writing this one a day early because I plan on baking the entire day this Wednesday in prep for the holiday.

I confess I don't like gravy. At all. Ick. 

I confess that my mom makes the BEST homemade rolls. Seriously I could fill up on just those alone. 

My Mother in Law asked my husband what he would like for snacks before her dinner. He said he wanted a "snack ham" aka a whole spiral ham to snack on before turkey. I confess he was only half kidding. (He's in this meal for the meat.) 

I confess that my favorite part of Thanksgiving is walking into my mom's house. The smells are amazing. The table is always set up so nicely. My brothers are there joking and being ridiculous. It makes the whole house feel warm and wonderful. 

That's all for me today. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I honestly don't know what to post today. 

A tragedy happened in my family and while it happened to a distant cousin it doesn't make it any less tragic. She lost her little boy...he was only three....just a year older than Kyra. My heart aches for her.

I guess what I really want to convey with this post is, during this week when we recognize our blessings and remember to be thankful, is that we always assume we have more time. Time to do the things we want to do. Time to hug the ones we love. 

But one day will be the last day. 

One time will be the last time. 

So if you are going to be seeing family this holiday. Hold them tight. 

If you aren't going to see them. Call them. 

Tell people you love them. Cherish memories that  you've made and laugh and enjoy one another. 

Because time is fleeting, and there is never enough of it. 

Except I know that I don't have time to do all I want to. Don't take life or your loved ones for granted

Reading....Welcome to Nightvale by Joseph Fink. I love the podcast and I was so excited when the book came out! I finally got it from the library yesterday and I am SO EXCITED to read it! 

Watching....Scream Queens. It's ridiculous and stupid....and weirdly hilarious. Jamie Lee Curtis is amazing. finish getting organized for the holidays. Seriously Thanksgiving is next week!!! start a blog series on baking. I seriously love to bake and this time of the year is when I get to indulge and try new things! Would you all be interested in seeing something like that??

Enjoying.....a new game that Kyra is playing. She puts her hand on your face until you "fall asleep" then she kisses your cheek to wake you up. It is hands down the most adorable thing ever. She's the sweetest.

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Confessions 11/18

Good Morning Everyone, 

It's Confession Time! 

I confess that I do not understand the poo emojie. I just don't get the appeal. I guess when you deal with poo on a daily basis it loses the funny/cute aspect. But honestly I just think....gross it's poo. 

I confess that my neighbors are on my shit list. They moved another family in with them and the NOISE. Seriously. Not to mention the amount of cars outside. Just...ugh. 

I confess that when a friend of mine posted that she is expecting her first baby I nearly burst into a happy dance. I love babies and I'm so happy for her! 

I confess that Friday cannot get hear fast enough because one of my BFF is coming into town and I have missed her face! #gonnadrinkallthewine

I confess that this double ear infection that I have is an absolute suckfest. First off I feel like I have cotton shoved into my ear and cannot hear anything. Second the drainage...ick. Third the ear drops that they prescribed me were like $300. thanks. Thankfully I know the pharmacy tech and she pointed me in the direction of some drops that have THE EXACT SAME INGREDIENTS...that cost.....$3. Now if the antibiotics will just do their thing I will hopefully be able to hear out of both ears soon. 

That's my confessions for the week. Be sure to join the linkups and share some of your own! 

Happy Humpday!
