Y’all, I’m sitting right here proper now watching a bear attempt to open each single door of our cabin company’ van. If I’ve realized one factor about cabin possession within the Nice Smoky Mountains, it’s this: don’t hold meals in your automotive and ensure you lock your automotive doorways at evening. Most bears are simply curious and can sniff round (they are surely simply outsized racoons and can run off pretty simply), but when there may be motivation for them within the type of meals, they’re sensible sufficient to determine how one can open your automotive door. Loopy!
Anyway- completely satisfied Friday! Has your week been an excellent one? Are you able to imagine that Thanksgiving is NEXT week? It’s a family-filled extravaganza for us and one we sit up for a lot yearly. However first for this weekend we now have a TKD belt take a look at, three soccer video games, and two basketball practices.

I’m most likely 75% carried out with deciding on Christmas presents, 40% carried out buying presents, and 0% carried out on wrapping. I do know I nonetheless have time, however I’m actually hoping to have this knocked out within the subsequent week and a half and plan on profiting from some gross sales subsequent week. I’ll share all of the gross sales and low cost codes I do know of on Monday in case they provide help to out as nicely!
Since my thoughts is far and wide, let me share a number of snippets from the chopping room ground of this week:

You’ll be able to regulate their brightness and the way a lot they flicker (or don’t). Each early night when it will get darkish outdoors, I change them on and on the spot coziness. Extremely suggest. Listed here are the holders I’ve them in.
Enjoyable with hair! I’ve by no means put lots of time into the youngsters’ hair, so long as they brushed it. Now they’re getting a bit of extra enthusiastic about fixing their hair and I really like serving to them implement what they give you. H is a fan of braids and having it out of her face. Okay might be extra daring in her selections, and the truth that she preferred Rae buns and wears them out with confidence makes me smile.
Umm… Kohls. What is that this? We’ve taken the cheesy Christmas sweater factor a bit far, don’t you suppose? I imply, I form of need that Santa swimsuit although…
In different trendy information, Aldi presently has canine pajamas on sale for $4.99. The children (and I) LOVED this a lot! Finley, alternatively, seems to be like she’s attempting to blink twice and sign for assist.
Bundle up and go. When it will get chilly out my intuition is to hunker down inside and be cozy. However yesterday Kaitlyn satisfied us to go on a picnic.

First martini in my new gold rimmed cocktail glasses! We received these after we frolicked at World Market for an additional hour to play their hidden gnome sport and got here away with $70 in retailer credit score. I’m so in love with these. They really feel “old-timey” to me and are the right measurement. Some martini glasses have gotten SO large that one martini finally ends up being far more than I would like. For those who just like the gold rim search for festive drinks, too, these are fairly related.
