Monday Brain Dump

I have lots of things that I would like to blog about, but they all include pictures, and I continue to forget my camera cord at home.  I have a goal to start organizing pictures tonight, so maybe I’ll remember to get the pictures off of my (REAL!) camera.

We volunteered to host Thanksgiving again this year.  Much better than trying to split between families and driving 3 hours to my in-laws’.  I bought cute little Thanksgiving plates and cups at PBK for Cooper and his little cousin.  I’m also going to get Coop’s little table and chairs out for them to have their own table! Cute!! :)

I can’t believe I’m talking about Thanksgiving already.  Wasn’t it JUST here?!

Cooper has been SO funny lately.  The things he says are just hilarious.  And he loves to make us laugh.  I really need to start writing down the things he says.

I have to run 5.5 miles in less than 2 weeks.  And I don’t remember the last time I ran.  Oh, wait, I do.  I ran 1.3 miles on the treadmill a couple weeks ago, and I had to LEAVE THE GYM because I though I was going to pass out.  So, sounds like I’m in excellent shape for the marathon relay.  Blah.  I thought it would be a good motivator to make me realize I like running.  But I don’t.  I hate running, actually.  Oh well, I won’t have to any more after Nov 18

I have the worst luck with photographers.  Seriously, they never respond to my inquiries.  I emailed one last week, and haven’t heard back.  Granted, I’m aware that it’s a little late to schedule a fall session, but I just asked if there was any availability.  I’m also aware that I’m impatient, so maybe it’s normal.  Anyway, I think my parents are going to be our photographers for some family pics.  I just want a couple of good family shots, anyway, so this might work better.

Yesterday, I ran to Target by myself (!) for a couple of things.  Well, my quick trip turned into almost 2 hours of leisurely strolling up and down every aisle, with an eggnog latte in hand.  They even had Christmas stuff out. It was heaven.

I am seriously at Target multiple times a week, yet a solo trip with time to kill never, ever gets old.
So will you have to cook the turkey??

So many good things about this post!

1. LOVE not travelling for thanksgiving. We've been home the last 2 years and it's so much more relaxing!

2. I must check out these PBK thanksgiving plates you speak of.

3. There's nothing better than a solo trip to Target. And eggnog latte is just icing on the cake!

That's so nice that y'all will have Thanksgiving at your house! Sometimes a trip to Target wandering around with a coffee is a lovely thing ;) I hope a photographer gets back to you and you're able to get your pics!

two hours?! Ha.
I would have spent a million dollars by then.
Hosting a big meal like that freaks me out, but I bet you put on quite a feast. I havent run in forever. I like immediate responses too- I had a few photographers never call me back. so rude.

haha!! you are so funny. you sound like me with your running ambitions! except i'd actually find a way to fake sick that day and get out of it. photographers are weird/frustrating sometimes. i had a really hard time getting a response too...i don't get it?!

I took our family pictures this year. Fail on getting them scheduled in time!

And hats off to you for hosting Thanksgiving! That's awesome. Pretty sure this disaster of a cook will never do that ;) oh well..
