Monday Randoms

with the lovely Carissa at lowercase letters

one.
Happy Monday ladies! I am not excited for the 5 am alarm this morning or to be at work after four days off, but I am super excited that December begins this week and so will our month-long Holiday unit at work. I really love this time of year - at home and in the classroom.

two.
We had a delicious Thanksgiving and it was a wonderful day with Corey's family. My parents back home had a really great Thanksgiving, too, and I'm excited that I'll be there with them for Christmas in less than a month. My mom will be here to visit me in less than two weeks for a girls' weekend and a return trip to Kleinfeld! So exciting.


three.
On Thanksgiving night, I felt a little bit like this, when I refused to let Corey into the car to go home until he'd helped me drag all the Christmas decorations out of his parents' garage and load them into the car - including our six and a half foot tree.

four.
I'll have to do a photo tour of our apartment - its fully decorated but for now, here's a photo of our tree. I fought a lady for this in Target's day after Christmas 75% off sale a couple years ago. I got there first and was waiting patiently for my mom to get a shopping cart, and this woman tried to steal my tree. When she tried to take it from me, I said, "Excuse me, I was here first. I'm waiting on my mom to get a cart." And she said, "Well, I have a cart now." Well, girls, I jumped on top of the tree and straddled the box, holding on to both handles. And, I have thoroughly enjoyed the tree. Here it is, making a return appearance this year.

five.
Corey, Riley, and I walked eight miles yesterday. It wore me out. Riley and I took a good three hour nap yesterday afternoon after we got home. But I needed the exercise and it was such a beautiful day here, we thought we should take advantage of it. Pretty soon its going to be so cold that I won't want to go outside at all. 

six.
I don't do black Friday shopping, however I had to venture out to make a return on Friday and stopped in Bath and Body Works really quickly. I bought the Spiced Apple Toddy candle and oh my word - it smells ah-mazing. Our entire apartment has a light smell like spiced apple cider. Perfect for the Holidays!

Happy Monday girls!
