Wow kids, is it Thanksgiving eve already?! ::sigh:: It's insane how once we get to the 4th quarter of the year, everything jumps into warp speed. I was just putting the purple lights outside for Halloween and now we're thawing two turkeys in our upstairs bathroom. And no, I'm not joking. :)
This past week was a pretty rough one emotionally. I've really been struggling with some things internally and when it came to fruition this week, it was LIFE: 1 and LESLIE: 0. I know it's happening for a reason, I really do... it's just getting over the hump that's unnerving. Good news? Of course there is good news, silly! Relay for Life fundraising has begun and thanks to some unbelievable donors, I'm already at $275 into my goal of $1000! I can't begin to express my gratitude for everyone who has donated so far and if you're interested in donating in the future, just visit my page - we're in this until we reach our goal! In other news, Christmas cards are ordered - yay! - and should be going out first week of December. My friend Sullivan took our "family" pictures a little over a week ago and they turned out beautifully so we're excited to show everyone... coming to a mailbox near you!
We started pulling out some Christmas decor from storage last week. The ornaments have started to multiply around the house but that's a good thing: I received this fabulous ornament from one of my sorority sisters, Robin...
and we picked up a beautiful lighthouse ornament while we were in Boone in early November. Now, if we can just pick out our Christmas tree! :) Last but not least, I'd like to highlight some awesomeness that occurred this week:
New Moon, the 2nd installment of the Twilight series - WOWZA! If you like/love this series at all and haven't seen this yet, I have one question: where have you been??? Hiding under a rock?! GO SEE IT!
TweetDeck - update all your network sites at once. Brilliant! (channeling my inner Guinness guys)
Eclipse, the 3rd installment of the Twilight series - release date was announced as June 30, 2010! Mark your calendars! (do you see a pattern here? LOL)
Columbia APH - installed new committee chairmen and is now on Twitter! @ColumbiaAPH - follow us!
Good laugh! Because everybody can use one from time to time...
And most importantly: an amazing husband, incredible family, loving friends and a 2010 so bright I gotta wear shades... that's what I'm thankful for this year. Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving, peeps!
Happy Birthday Ellie!
