Extended weekend

I am hoping you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends!

My weekend started out great on Wednesday. I took the day off and spent the day at home putting up our Christmas tree and decor and making a yummy Thanksgiving meal for my Hubs and I. It was wonderful being at home all day! I could SO get use to that!

Thursday, however took a turn for the worse. I won't even go into the details.....but let's just say, I took a long 3 hour nap that day and ate crackers and drank some sprite. Of course, it didn't help matters that my Hubs decided to be in a not so wonderful mood...and it just was hard being around a downer that day. I missed seeing my family....but am so very thankful for the times I have had with them and will have with them around Christmas time. :)

After a rough day on Thursday, Friday turned into a much better day. I however did not get out of my pjs until about 4:00 that day. I enjoyed the no makeup/pj look. And enjoyed watching a movie, football and just being a bum. ha!

Saturday...I began feeling more motivated and I baked a Pecan Pie for my first time...I will put recipes and pictures up on my recipe blog.  It turned out really yummy! I also finished up the outdoor decor...as it was so nice outside...I couldn't resist getting some fresh air!

Today has been GREAT! Church was just what I needed this morning and the sermon was SPOT ON with what I am feeling and going through. God amazes me how he speaks to me when I feel like he isn't listening to me and become frustrated. Thank you God for never giving up on me or those I pray for!! So thankful for my church, pastor and church family. :)

This afternoon, I am taking it easy. I am not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow...but am thankful for the time off I have had.  Got to finish up some MORE laundry and finish up some 31 orders! Business is booming! I was even promoted the day before Thanksgiving! My next goal is to be Director by Feb/March! And then one day...to work at it Full Time so that I can work from home and make my own hours! I can't wait till that day!

I am thankful for all you blog readers out there! Thanks for sticking with me! I haven't been the best blogger in the last few months....haven't felt like anything exciting enough is going on in my life. Decided to start making it a priority again. It is good to write and share. :)

Time to watch some KC Chiefs!! Happy Sunday!

Sorry you didn't have a very good Thanksgiving but glad you are feeling better now! And glad to hear that you were successful making a pecan pie! Pecan Pie is my favorite.
