I'm starting a new little series here. "Midweek Confessions" we'll call it. I'm not posting a link-up at the bottom, and I haven't designed a cute little button (yet), because usually when I do those things the idea totally bombs. I just find myself doing a lot of silly/embarrassing things that I'm sure (or, I sure hope) many of you can relate to during the week... So, let's just confess it and move on. K?
- I'm not making anything for Thanksgiving this year. Jeff is making green-bean casserole and sweet potato casserole because those are his two favorites. He even tracked down the family recipes and did all of the grocery shopping. I feel a little like a bad housewife; but, heck, I'm NOT a housewife. I'm thankful for my stud in the kitchen.
- NO ONE is participating in my table decorating contest (see above)... Including me. Life happens, and my lofty plans for a Pinterest inspired Thanksgiving table fell through when I remembered I have a job and a baby, and can't even keep my dining room table clean, much less decorated. I'll take pictures of my mom's pretty table and post them on Friday instead. Consider this the official Table Decorating Contest 2011 Cancellation. Sorry friends - not that you were going to participate anyway. ;)
- Monday afternoon I asked my mother-in-law to keep Sam for a few hours so that I could catch up on some chores around the house. She, of course, happily obliged. In my 3+ hours of free time, I did not "catch up" on ONE productive thing. Instead, I drank coffee with my mom, ate Chipolte by myself, and drug out ALL of my Christmas decorations only to be so overwhelmed by the mess that I just got my baby back and put us both to bed. The house looks like a glitter tornado swept through. Tonight will be attempt number 2 (while Jeff is cooking).
- I love Jesus, and I know the reason for the season, but... My favorite Christmas song is still Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas for You." I LOVE it. And, no, I don't really like Michael Buble's new remake. I'm sure it is the more sophisticated/musically advanced version, but I'll stick with my girl Mariah thankyouverymuch.
That's all for today. Come back tomorrow to see pictures of my little guy in his turkey long-alls and the standard "I'm Thankful for" post. In the meantime, what are your "Midweek Confessions"?
