Today is my last day to enjoy before heading back into the working world. A couple weeks ago I decided that it would be in my best interest to go back to work especially since this great opportunity more or less fell into my lap. So, tomorrow morning I will get up with the chickens and head into my new job. I have orientation tomorrow and I will find out tomorrow what the rest of the day holds for me. So, I guess we will see and learn more then. I am a bit nervous, but I am ready. I worry about my little man, but I am sure he will do just fine to be honest with you or at least I hope he does.
This past week was spent packing away my Fall decorations and pulling out my Christmas decorations. I didn’t get all of my stuff out. I went with a more simple, but elegant look this year. I only got out a few things here and there and used more greenery and lights. It looks so warm and cozy to be honest with you. I am definitely pleased with the way it turned out. Here are some pictures that I thought I would share with you.
I thought that looked great in my half bath. It added just enough color and the right amount of Christmas cheer. Here is what I did in our bedroom….
Here is my entry way…….
My family room…..
I also decided to do a little with my kitchen and here is what it looks like in the dark. The picture is of poor quality, but it gives you an idea.
Doesn’t it look warm and cozy?
Do you all remember this picture from my previous post?
Well, this is what I did with that cloth.
Yep, I thought that since I did my stenciling that I definitely needed some curtains that would pull out that red. So, I changed my curtains out and put these up. I love the new look. What do you think? I even thought that they would look great in the family room so I pulled them into the family room and took out all of the mini blinds. Ugh…… I hate those mini blinds. I had tons of holes to patch up and luckily I still had some paint so I just fixed it right up.
So, did you all have a nice Thanksgiving? I always enjoy getting together with my family. There is nothing better then spending time with your family and enjoying some yummy food. We had some great “family food”. What is “family food” do you ask?!? Well, it is food that we always use to eat with my grandparents. Food that we have enjoyed for years and years. Here is a look at some of the foods that we enjoyed.
Talk about starchy foods. One item missing from this plate was green beans. Once some of that food was gone, I went back for some of those and boy oh boy were they good. To be honest….. I could have ate more of the sides and none of the turkey (lol). Yep, I am a major side dish kinda gal. My hubby and Cameron made the homemade noodles, I made my family favorite cracker dressing and I also made a yummy sweet potato bake. Yep, I think I could have hate the whole sweet potato bake…… it was so yummy!! Here is a closer look of the noodles while be rolled out and cut and also a closer look at the sweet potato bake.
Lots of noodles ~ huh? That would be a dozen worth of eggs and lots of flour!! Here is my sweet potato bake….
I thought I would leave you with this picture of my little family that was taken on Thanksgiving Day. Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful day of thanks and enjoyed your family time as well. Hope you all have many more.
Until Next Time ~ Blessings Always!!
