Dear "my day"

 Write random and link up.
{Breaking Dawn}
Girl's night was a succes!
Breaking Dawn was amazing, as expected.

I also bought the sound track yesterday.  Yes, I have been listening to it on repeat.

I think this might be my favorite song, but it might have a little to do with this video that I found on YouTube.
My mom was a little late jumping on the bandwagon so she just finished reading all of the books and watched the first movie.
I am taking the first 3 DVD's home with me for Thanksgiving so mom and I can have a catch up session.
Hopefully we can find the time to go to see Breaking Dawn.  
I've been trying to figure out a way to go see it again.  #ACCOMPLISHED

I finally had time to read and finish this book this weekend.  
I literally read all day Saturday.
I loved it, but I cried like a baby.
Coral kept giving me these concerned was so sweet.

A few of my friends have read the Stephanie Plum series and highly recommended it.
I was able to download the first 9 from my friend's Kindle. 
 There are 17 available now and the 18th gets released on Tuesday.  

Oh my, can we say I will have my hands full over Thanksgiving and Christmas break.

{Christmas Decor}
I started putting up Christmas stuff this weekend.
I bought a pewter tree from Target and did some whimsical type ornaments.
The pictures really don't do it justice.
I also want to get some more decorations for it, but for now this is what I've got.

I finally got me some new boots.  My favorite pair of camel boots got chewed a bit by precious little Coral.
Yes, I was mad at her, but I really needed a new pair anyways.
I love them and I will probably wear them everyday of my life...until Coral gets a hold of them.

{New York}
While getting out Christmas stuff today, we came across all of my sister's Christmas cards from the past years.  We saw the idea of making a book out of them for the coffee table.
We were organizing them, and I found my Christmas card from last year.

I had just moved to NEW YORK.
I got to thinking about how much I miss NY.
I love being back in Alabama with my family, but miss having my own place.
I miss all of my friends in NY and I miss the life I had for myself while I was there.
Anyways, I am so thankful for the experience that I had, but I am happy to be back home close to my friends and family.
I will plan a visit, freeze my butt off, and then be so thankful to not live there anymore.
{Happy Mingling}

I know I've shared this before, but it makes me happy so here it is again.
Happy Monday.
