Thankful 11.23.17


I was supposed to hit publish on this post on Thanksgiving, but I just realized I didn't. As to not lose this week in family history, here you go...almost a week late...

  1. Christmas movies on Netflix. We are totally putting up the tree early this year. 
  2. We went to my friend Michele's house for dinner and she made homemade Chik-fil-a. Oh my, it was amazing. Dan told her we will be driving thru once a week.
  3. We officially sold our first item on Facebook Marketplace. Now I am looking at every item in the house and wondering how much it is worth to me. Can you sell animals? Asking for a friend.
  1. A special shout out to the person who turned in my phone from the Marshall's parking lot. Oh, and the woman who followed me out of Crate and Barrel with my wallet. I know this surprises no one, but I am losing my mind.
  2. I got my eyebrows waxed, which was just the little self care treat I needed.
  3. We had a great Friendsgiving meal at the Nybergs' house. It was lovely. 

  1. The whole family helped in tidying up the house while I was calling patients. (I started back at my Saturday morning job a few weeks ago). It was great to start the weekend on a clean note.
  2. Dan and I enjoyed a fun night at a family friend's wedding. The wedding was beautiful and I didn't know how badly we needed to get out of the house without the kids. It was such a fun date night. Can we all agree that Dan needs to wear a suit more often?
  3. My dad and Bev played with the girls while we were gone and we came home to all three girls asleep in their beds and all the laundry done. How long do I have to wait to ask them to babysit again? 
  1. Mira slept all night long! Like, until 6:30 AM. I am pretty positive that neither Ina nor Cora did this at 2 months old, so I am hoping this is a great sign. 
  2. I ordered our Christmas cards. They are not creative at all and they don't share any details about our year, but honestly I don't have the mental capacity for that right now. I am just happy that Chessa took our picture and we are all looking at the camera. Ha! 
  3. We finished up our small group semester. I just love those people.

I forgot to write anything down for this day, and even looking at my planner does not help me remember a single detail about it. So there's that.

  1. Cora didn't get kicked out of story time. It was looking iffy there for a bit.
  2. Dan's mom made us dinner and brought it over. Not only was it delicious, as always, it was great to not worry about dinner and instead play games.
  3. I taught Ina and Dan how to play chicken foot with dominos. They both liked the game and we now have another choice in our arsenal. I moved all the games from the basement to a cabinet by the dining room table, hoping to motivate us to play games more. 

  1. Ina didn't have school, so we lounged around the house and casually/slowly put up Christmas decorations and made pies for Thanksgiving. I kept my Christmas decorating to a minimum, reminding myself I would have to put anything I got out away in January when I am fully in the grind of being a working mom to three kids. This was also our first time making pies. I don't mind saying they were a success.
  2. Dan had food poisoning, NOT the stomach bug. I know that is a weird thing to be thankful for, but stomach bugs are contagious while food poisoning is not, and Big Momma doesn't have time/energy/patience for that ish right now.
  3. My mom came over with a mini pecan pie and we played games while Dan was recovering.

Food I have made this week:

Healthy Chicken Enchilada Soup: It was just OK. Probably won't make again.

Red beans and rice: Very good - I had this for 5 meals and wasn't upset about the last one.

Paleo breakfast casserole: I have some form of egg casserole for the last 3 weeks and it has been clutch in having an easy and healthy breakfast after a minute in the microwave.
