Busy Week

This week has been pretty hectic. I was in Miami Monday-Wednesday for a Timeshare seminar through work and upon returning home, I've been playing catch up at work and spending time with my little man. Not to mention I have more presents to buy and wrap for Christmas. Where is the time going?!

I'll leave you with some pictures to sum up the week.

What you're seeing: In the elevator before dinner, on a break at the seminar, at waffle house for breakfast, and the view on South Beach.

What you're seeing: Sprawled out for nap time, staring at Momma, hating Bumbo time, and matching with Daddy.

 After I finish my tree of course!

It's ok Thursday!

Today I am linking up with Neely @ A Complete Waste of Makeup for It's Ok Thursdays

It's ok...

To only have your tree half decorated. I was not expecting half of my lights to blow.

To leave your newborn son with a sitter during the day while you're working and trying to provide a better life for him.

That Christmas is in 3.5 weeks and only I've only bought half of the presents I need to.

To FINALLY have Outlook on my work computer. WINNING!

To take a year off of school. At least I'm finally going back!

To write this blog while I'm at work. Sssshhh!!

To want to make stuffing after Thanksgiving.

To only have 3 followers. (One being myself) It's not a competition!

To not be as interested in Pinterest now as I was when it wasn't popular.

To fall asleep at 9:30 PM. We all need out beauty rest, right?

Thanksgiving recap.

It's crazy how much I anticipated Thanksgiving and now it is already gone and Christmas is only 28 days away! This was the first Thanksgiving that I cooked by myself (almost).

I spent almost 7 hours cooking on Thursday. YES. 7 hours. My Mother-in-law helped me clean the turkey out and I am grateful because that is the part I was least excited about.

Everything turned out pretty well. I didn't burn the house down and no one threw away my food. YES! Even though I was cooking all day I found myself to be relaxed. I fed Jordan and changed diapers in between making side dishes. I'm pretty sure that he loved having Mommy and Daddy home all day because we had one happy boy!

After dinner I made the desserts. Of course a pumpkin pie but also some mini apple pies. I got the recipe from pinterest here. It was a pretty simple recipe and the pies came out delicious!! They were light and fluffy (if that even makes sense) and tasted great for breakfast with coffee the next morning.

After dinner we of course headed out for some Black Friday shopping. We went to the Orlando Premium Outlets. The traffic was crazy and the stores were packed but we got some great deals and I am now about 50% done with my Christmas shopping. Why is it taking me so long? I started in October!! Speaking of Christmas, we are supposed to put our tree up tomorrow. Yippee!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksiving!! Now onto Christmas!!

fill in the blank Friday!

1.   A nervous habit I have is     Cracking my nuckles. This is a new habit that I've picked up and it's already making my fingers hurt. Make it stop!

2.   Something that makes me sad is   my son crying with tears. A majority of his cries are fake and whimpers. But when little tears start to come out my heart breaks. I never want him to be unhappy.
3.  Today I am thankful for    my husband, my son, my mother-in-law(she is amazing) and my job. .

4. My favorite room in my house is    my bedroom. I love that our bed (king) is big enough for my husband, the baby and I  to get comfortable while watching TV or hanging out.

5.  I can't stand    waiting at school for 3 hours before registering for classes. Ridiculous. But atleast it's all taken care of.

6.  If I had an extra $100 to spend on whatever I wanted today I would    buy these Steve Madden Intyce boots. I have had my eye on them for several weeks but haven't justified spend the extra hundred dollars yet.

7.  The last person I hung out with was    my hubby and brother-in-law. We went to Gators Dockside last night for some wings and to watch the football game.
