blake shelton

I try not to repeat artists too much on my Friday music posts, but I can't help it. I think this Blake Shelton song is so sweet, and I wanted to share it today. I hope you enjoy it!

happy turkey day!

I hope you're having a wonderful holiday and enjoying lots of tasty treats! I thought I'd share some fun dessert inspiration; I love the use of wood serving plates to make a Fall statement.

Happy Thanksgiving!

just a minute... in November

Making... a Christmas tree skirt

Listening... to Blake Shelton's "Mine Would Be You"

Loving... the Fall colors and blue skies; it's truly a perfect Fall day

Waiting... for our big Texas Thanksgiving dinner! My family's tradition is fajitas and margaritas, so excited!

Wishing... everyone safe travels over the holiday weekend

and most importantly THANKFUL for family and friends that are so special to us!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and thank you for spending a little of it here!  I love sharing with you, and I love to hear from you too!

oh november!

Everyone talked about October flying by, but honestly I've completely lost hold of November. I can't believe Black Friday is next week! Ryno and I have been trying to put some good habits into practice, which I think is partially to blame for my absence. We're trying to have a set date night once a week...sometimes we even sneak in two! I've put together a date night jar with ideas of things we love doing together or things we've wanted to try. We're planning to test it out this week; I'll let you know if it works well. Also, we read it's good for you to shut off all screens at least an hour before bed to give your body time to adjust from the artificial light, so we're trying that out as well. I'm particularly enjoying that one so far. The last big thing is we finally had a housewarming in our new place. It was a lot of work that resulted in me cooking thirty baked potatoes, but we had so much fun! I read the suggestion once to have a loaded potato bar and allow friends to decide on their toppings. It worked really well, and allowed us to accommodate vegetarian/vegan friends, which is always my biggest concern when coming up with a menu for a party. It was great spending time with friends in our new space, and we hope to do so more often now that we're settled.

I spent my morning listening to the Avicii Pandora station at work, and it's a really good station. The music is all upbeat, which is just what my morning needs. I thought I would share my favorite song of his, but the official music video is a lot of sponsored plugs. So I'm going to share the "lyric" music video instead of the song Wake Me Up.

Hope you have a great weekend!
