A post-thanksgiving post

I hope everyone has been enjoying time with their families and friends over the past day or two. A full Thanksgiving recap will definitely be coming Monday, full of photo overload and some funny stories, but for now.... it's one of those days I just need to make a list. Those happen around here from time to time, and to be honest, they are quite nice ;)
  • I'm at work today......and it seems so cruel! However, in an effort to complain less, I can say at least I'm not working in retail today. I really do feel bad for you all, I'm sure yesterday and today are insane for you!
  • We are also having a potluck brunch at the office today, so yummy food always makes everything a little more tolerable.
  • This year at Thanksgiving there was a BABY for the first time ever... well, since I was one! ;) Makes for a fun and different day of celebration. He's almost 12 weeks old and we love new cousin Westley!!!
  • Last night Jared and I put up our tree and lots of other Christmas decorations. Our house is officially a winter wonderland!!
  • Lastly- thank you to everyone who has entered my giveaway so far! You still have until next Tuesday, so go enter!!

    Retail working SUCKS! I did it for 10 years and I will never shop on black friday {at least in stores}

  7. Working retail is awful today! Luckily I got the later shift and wasn't there at midnight, it was crazy enough for me at noon!

  13. If it makes you feel any better (which it probably won't) my husband had to work the day after Thanksgiving and he'll have to work Christmas Eve also. Guess that's what happens when you're in the banking support industry.
