Confession Friday - Thanksgiving Edition

I confess after a super, duper summer and a beautiful September, Fall has set in and it is raining cats and dogs today.

I confess we have family staying with us. Lots of family! My mama, uncle and cousin are here for the week!

I confess we are super excited to celebrate our first Thanksgiving with Ade.

I confess it is still crazy to me that Ade is really here!!!!

I confess it is going to be hard to contain myself for Christmas!! I LOVE Christmas and the last few have not been fun! THIS Christmas....well...it will be fun!

I confess my Uncle woke the household up this morning at 6AM whilst making coffee - too early!!!!

I confess our neighbour's rumbling truck warming up across the street didn't help matters.

I confess I am excited for Thanksgiving dinner. We are hosting my family at our house this year and there will be lots of kids running around! Including ours! Yay!

I confess I got my first dead hang pull-up this week. And then I did 2 more. I'm feeling strong!!!

I confess I went to Las Vegas last week for 3 nights with 2 of my favourite girlfriends and it was lots of fun!

I confess we saw The Jersey Boys and if you want to see an excellent musical this is the one to see.

I confess we saw Duran Duran in concert. I was a definite Duranie in my teens in the '80's. So much so that I had their posters plastered all over my bedroom walls. I wore a rock t-shirt with their smiling faces on it and a hat and I cried when their videos came on. I know! I was truly a silly teenage girl.

I confess I am wishing each and every one of you the happiest of Thanksgivings!!!!!

I confess I am thankful for family and friends.

I confess I am THANKFUL for our little family of 3 plus 2 dogs!!!

Very impressive on the pull ups!! Seriously! And... I hear you about Christmas. A bit anxious about how overwhelming it will be for them and how uncontrolled our families might be, but mostly I'm just super excited to share my favourite time of year with the boys and start to make some new family memories! Happy Thanksgiving to you guys. A xo
