It's been way too long since I've posted. Want to say I am proud that I now have one follower:) I am slightly tickled at the fact that it is my BFF.
True to my list-loving self, I started mapping out my holiday schedule last weekend and for next month it is going to be one wild ride. I'm trying to remind myself to enjoy each day.
Let me back up first and say, the Auction was a huge success. CCS raised $25,000 in that one night and it was our FIRST ever auction. I'm extremely excited about the future of this event. Here is a pic of Little Man in his school snapshot. These snapshots were sold the night of the auction for $5 a pop. The Saturday after the auction me, Numero Uno, my BFF, and her man all went to Lynchburg, TN to the Jack Daniel's Distillery. It was nice to be away from the kids and no stress for a day.
The weather was beautiful and we ate at Miss Mary Bo Bo's Boarding House. The name is a mouthful but so is the spread that they put on for each person that eats there. You get two dining options: 11:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. and I love it! Some of the best food you will ever put in your mouth and it is served in the old boarding house fashion (groups of people sharing a meal together around one table).
Going to historical places or any place that has a story to tell is on my "Love It" list. To hear how someone succeeded or the struggles or joys in the journey give me a weird sense of peace.
Now as far as me being off to the races, that is because I have figured out that there is a lot of activities going over the next 39 days. So much happens everyday that I wish I could remember most of it:) For instance, my man decided to get me a washer and dryer (well our broken down dryer really determined the buy) and he tried to sneak in a Christmas present but I found it. And what a find it was - a KitchenAid stand mixer. I kinda feel misplaced, I mean now my clothes are dry on the first cycle of drying time and when I bake something I basically stand there while everything blends together beautifully.
This Thanksgiving I have MUCH to be thankful for: I have an absolutely wonderful husband with whom I love him more now than ever (and not just because of the gifts), three amazingly witty and funny children, a beautiful home, a fantastic extended family, HEALTH, and God who is sweetly merciful in His guidance of me. Please do not mistake my thankful heart for someone who has it all together - no, that is what I have my lists for:)
