Happy Turkey Day!

I know we are all thinking turkey, but really, let's take time this weekend to be thankful. Not for the settlers stealing the land from the Indians, but for the fact that if you are reading this...we make up 8% of the world. Let this soak in:

I really am thankful for a lot of things {Mapquest, coffee, my hunky hubby, family, friends that become family, all of YOU} but mostly because I will be spending Thanksgiving in paradise with the in-loves...Hello, white sandy beaches. I need you in my life.

But in all seriousness...I hope you all REALLY enjoy that turkey! I'll have mine in sandwich form smothered with stuffing and gravy laden potatoes, all followed by pumpkin pie. YUM.

It's Christmas Card Time!

As per usual, I need help deciding which picture(s) for the Christmas card this year. I thought about taking some holiday themed too, but life has been too busy and these will have to do. What'cha think? I need at least one 'winner', maybe two.






PS. We made it through the Bazaar, and exceeded our fundraising goal {thank you sweet baby Jeesus}, but that update will have to wait. I spent aaaall day Sunday recovering from the insanity, and I'm just oh so glad it's over. Maybe...just maybe, life will get back to normal.

Happy Thanksgiving week!

My $20 Tattoo

Considering we've spent about $600 on one tattoo {Will's sidepiece}, we understand the importance of investing in something that will be on our bodies forever. You most definitely get what you pay for, so normally I would run from someone that offered me a $20 session, however, when you throw the word charity at interest is piqued.

I heard Prodigal Son Tattoo was raising money for the Wiregrass Children's Home, so I immediately text Joel, my most tattoo'd friend, and said "Let's GOO!"  {You can feel bad for Will because he had to stay home and study. Such a good boy!}

We put our names on the list and before we knew it we were on the tables. I'd be lying if I didn't feel anxiety like an uptight Aubrey from Pitch Perfect, but it was totally worth the adrenaline rush. Even with a limited list of tattoo options, I knew I was going to love it if for no other reason than the badass story we were going to have.

On top of it all, Chilly our artist, added color to my anchor and put the heart on my arch fo' free! I had a tiny little heart there from many moons ago, and he just dove in and updated it. If you include the free shirts they gave us and door prizes, it's almost like they paid us to get tattoos, AND it was all for a good cause. Anywho, normally I recommend RUNNING from anyone who offers you a $20 tattoo, but I guess sometimes it's okay.

Wish me luck on the Bazaar! We're gonna need it.

Let's Play A Game

And let's call said game 'Blog Comment Love'. Although it should really be called "I've stretched myself too thin, and can't keep up with my life."

The rules are simple. You comment on this post, and I promise I will comment on your blog within a week. If you know me, you know that means I will catch up on your blog and comment at least a few times. I know this probably seems like a shameless request for comments, but I really just need an easy way to catch up on blog reading, and I'd rather read the blogs that I actually have relationships with. Those of you that read and don't comment, this could also be a chance to speak up too. Say hi, ask questions, tell me your favorite Christmas tradition, share a link to a post you want me to read- whatever your little heart desires.

Just don't forget to check if you are a 'no-reply commentor', so that I actually can reply/find you, and know that I will comment more if you don't have word verification on. Otherwise I get frustrated and click the red x. If you don't know what these things are, you are probably guilty. I will forgive you if you fix them ;) Ahem Carrie cough you are guilty of both.

You live and learn!
