We had such a lovely time yesterday when everyone was here. So many things to be thankful for, not the least of which is wonderful family and friends. Nanny, Mom, Dad, Kevin, Wes, Sherry, and Phyllis were all here to celebrate with us. I was able to get a ton of stuff done while my mom had the kids ... um, and I might have also taken two naps. :) It is so very hard to be me, I know, I know.
John and I had a great time on my birthday; American Gangster was more amazing than I can describe. I love just about anything Ridley Scott does, and I totally heart Russell Crowe. I'm not usually a huge fan of Denzel Washington, but he blew me away in this film. Based on a true story, which makes it even better. Um, if you have a problem with language or violence, please don't go within 10 miles of this movie. It's no Departed, but it's not too far from it.
Plus, it was nice to just sit and chat with John before the movie while we had pizza. We got to discuss a few heavy things, which I'll (hopefully) be sharing soon. For now, I would just ask for your prayers that we would be open to any plans that God has for our lives.
I stuffed myself silly yesterday at lunch, and proceeded to eat more than I should have after the kids went to bed, too. Oy!! I went out this morning, got a delicious latte from Starbucks, went by the bank, and then went to the art festival at the Bastrop Farmer's Market. I think I got a good third of my Christmas shopping out of the way this morning, for under $50! Yay me!! :)
John just made another fire, and we're all about to have a little dessert from yesterday before we all take a nap. Mmmm, pie and naps in front of the fire ... Could this day get any better?? I think not.
New recipes tomorrow ... or tonight, if I can get motivated. So yeah, tomorrow. Just kidding.
