Happy {Late} Thanksgiving!

Well, what a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend it was!
Austin and I were able to visit both of our families and eat lots of yummy wintery foods and pies. I tried the pumpkin pie, apple pie, strawberry cheese pie, and chocolate pie. Yum!

I am thankful for:

01. My loving husband {I don't know how he does it, but somehow he puts up with my crazy antics on a daily basis...}
02. My caring family & friends {I am so thankful my parents raised me the way they did. I'm also thankful for my mother-in-law. And my close friends.}
03. My furry pets {Their warm, loving fuzziness makes me instantly happy!}
04. Having jobs that make me feel good & happy {teaching 3-year-olds, dancing, choreographing... they are fun and rewarding!}
05. My health {Even though I should probably eat less pie, I am thankful that I have no major health issues to cause problems.}

I'm officially in the holiday spirit. I began Christmas shopping today! Last night Austin and I put up the Christmas tree and decorated a little. I'm not an expert at decorating, but I like it- the room feels nice & cozy :)

Get ready for the holiday season!

I mentioned in the last post I have already made and hung our Christmas wreath. Well here it is! I bought all of the things at Hobby Lobby on sale so for everything it cost less than $7. Plus there is leftover ribbon and the wreath is reusable :)

I've been busy (as mentioned in my previous post): work, dance teaching, and plenty of rehearsing for our upcoming dance concert (tomorrow and Sunday)!! I am excited because it is going to be a lot of fun and lots of family and friends are coming... I'm also excited for it to be over because I've been TOO busy this week!

Tonight Aust made reservations for us at the Melting Pot for some dinner dessert. I'm very excited!

I am full-swing in holiday mode! Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away and I've been trying to pick a pie or two to make when we visit our families. I've been flipping through Martha Stewart Living (both the Nov and Dec issues) and I already made and hung our holiday wreath :) Can you tell I love the holiday season? Now all we need is snow :)

Here are some cute holiday findings from Etsy... I'll post pics of the wreath I made as soon as I get them loaded onto my computer!

This is one of the cutest dog pics ever! I love dogs... but even if you're not a dog-lover... you've got to love this photo :)

It is going to be a busy, busy two weeks! In addition to work and dance-teaching, Perpetual Motion is guest-performing in UCO's dance concert this week, and our own concert is next week! Good bye free time (except at 10:30 at night...) I am excited for the concerts, though... some great works, including my first aerial piece as well as a new trio I choreographed this fall!
