Indeed Thanksgiving has come and gone, we've all eaten copious amounts of food, expressed what we're thankful for, and gone back to work. But I didn't want the entire holiday to pass without a brief post.

We attended three Thanksgiving dinners - one with friends and two with families - that were all yummy in our tummies. As tweeted on Sunday, I believe I ate an entire pie (collectively) over the weekend. Pumpkin still reigns as my favorite, but blueberry was a nice addition to the table this year.

Ever since I was a young little thing, a family tradition has been to attend the Kansas City Plaza Lighting Ceremony. This year's guest was Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet, which is cool because a.) he's funny b.) he's from Missouri c.) it's usually a football player or someone I don't really care about. The tradition has dwindled from 20+ family members to just a handful of us this year, but it's always top of my list for Thanksgiving plans.  Thousands of Christmas lights mixed with loved ones, hot chocolate, and a big dash of nostalgia is not something I care to miss.

My Nephew's AB(C)s

I know we're all biased toward our own precious family membersit's only natural—but I think this video ought to make anyone smile, whether you know my nephew Karson or not. Oh, how I love that little boy.

Us, Lately

This pretty perfectly describes our life lately. We spent yesterday afternoon running errands, and a decent part of the time & money we spent was for the dog. Two new snazzy doggy sweaters, and he's ready for the holidays!

Hello November

Month #11 is already here, and I'm excited for all of its possibilities! Here are a few goals for the next thirty days. They will be completed.

1. Ruckus Run this Saturday. As of yesterday, I am all signed up! It's training crunch time, and I'm not sure how great it will go, but I am doing it nonetheless. Woo.
2. Sign up for a class. Any class. A painting class? A yoga class? A Spanish class? Any class.
3. Make slow cooker apple butter. YUM.
4. Waking up with 50 jumping jacks every weekday.
5. Finish reading Life of Pi.
6. New photos in all the frames.
7. Get my hair cut, I am way overdue. 

It's going to be a really great month. Happy 11-1-11!
