::: Or at least, I would be if I wasn't chugging coffee like its water! I'm sitting pretty at 3 cups a day and I know that's a habit I need to curb a bit!
::: What are good 1 year old activities and toys? We just started to introduce some craft time in our day, but I'd love to know if you have any fun tricks up your sleeve (besides going to the park all day long!).
::: We have such a jam packed next few months....I'm ready to settle down....see above regarding exhaustion.
::: All fun stuff on the agenda though so I don't have much room to complain. We head to San Diego for Thanksgiving to celebrate with all of Joel's family, a trip to Disney, a week long trip to Scottsdale, AZ the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and then Christmas!
::: That trip to Scottsdale though is a 6 hour car trip with Leo that has me losing a little sleep! Our game plan is to leave really early in the morning, give him a bottle in the car and then hope he falls back asleep before we stop for breakfast, run around a park, and then stick a movie on. Think it could work?
::: I'm due for a "Day in the Life" post. They are always my favorite to look at from other people, and go back and read through mine, so I think we might try and get that accomplished this week!
::: This is basically turning into a long stream of my thoughts, but, it leads me to my defense of what I'm going to say next; We are putting up our Christmas decorations NEXT weekend. I know it's insane, but if I wait until after Thanksgiving, we only get 2/3 weekends with them, and that's just not enough time for all the effort! So, judge away (
::: Has anyone ordered their Christmas cards yet? There is no denying that the season is
::: Speaking of discount codes - I think this is going to be the first year that I try to take advantage of some Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. We are in desperate need of some new furniture (mainly a new sectional or couches), so I'm going to start shopping this week and then buy after Thanksgiving.
::: This will be, I think, my 11th year in a row running a Turkey Trot, and this year I've probably logged the least amount of running miles in my life. It might be a rudddde awakening!
::: I'm going to try and get pen to paper for our Thanksgiving and Christmas traditions - and I'd love to add some new ones to my list too.
::: Have you read any good, light-hearted, "beachy", books? I tried to get into The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close (author of Girls in White Dresses which I liked), but just couldn't get past the first few chapters.
