I feel like someone stuffed a butterball under my shirt!
We had a low-key Thanksgiving lunch with my mom and her friend Dan. I took care of the turkey (read: purchased it from Honeybaked Ham ;)) and the rolls and my mom cooked everyyyythinggggg else. God bless her! Everything was delicious!
It was unseasonably warm today, which was just fine with me. It's supposed to rain from tomorrow until next Wednesday, so the 70 degree weather today was quite welcome. It does feel a little weird to have our house decorated for Christmas with the warm weather, but I know it will be freezing in no time.
I went ahead and put the tree up and decorated yesterday! I usually don't do it until at least after Thanksgiving, if not sometime in December, but yesterday I just figured what's one day early? I've been having contractions (for weeks now, so it probably doesn't mean anything!) but I just wanted to make sure it was all done before baby girl decides to make her appearance!
Plus, we finally got a new tree... and I love it! I've been wanting a taller one for a few years now and finally bit the bullet. Apparently my ceilings are only 9ft tall.. ha! So my 9ft tree doesn't leave much room for a topper, but I don't even care! It's perfect. The way our living room is set up the tree has to be next to one of our couches, so I needed a slim tree but didn't want one of those super skinny pencil trees. I shopped around and found this one at Lowe's and it's perfect for our space!
I also ordered us new stockings with our names on them and baby girl's is hanging on the mantle... it's so surreal to have an extra stocking up this year!
I'm so thankful for my little family and especially my little turkey this year! Only 17 days until her expected arrival! So much to be thankful for this year!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
