Can you believe it’s November? I can’t. It doesn’t feel like it should be this late in the year already – time is flying by too fast.
The shower yesterday turned out great! Jen and I prepped and cooked all afternoon yesterday and everything turned out really good. We had a group of about 9, I think, which worked out perfectly for the space and the amount of food. It was so much fun! That was the first baby shower I’ve ever helped to throw and only the 2nd baby shower I’ve ever been to, period.
I ended up getting home a little after 9 last night, putting on my pajamas, reading for a bit, and then cuddling with Nick until we fell asleep. I’m not used to being away from the house for so long or being able to spend the entire afternoon / evening with a bunch of girls, so it was fun. Nick also did some laundry and vacuumed the house while I was gone, which was very helpful.
Although I don’t like daylight savings and having to change the clocks, the one good thing about “falling back” is that it’s lighter in the mornings again. I don’t think that’s a good trade off for getting dark at 4:30 pm, but I’ll take what I can get.
All I could think about this morning was a big bowl of oatmeal. It’s a little chilly and foggy outside, and it was time for some pumpkin oats.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- pinch salt
- 1/4 cup or so pumpkin
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- tons of cinnamon
- 3 Tbsp TJs nuts over raspberries mix (mostly mixed in, chocolate chips saved for top)
There’s coffee waiting, and I guess I have to get to work soon…
What’s your choice: Thanksgiving or Christmas?
I have always loved Thanksgiving, and it’s always been my favorite holiday. I’m not exactly sure why, but I can’t wait for it.
