WEEKLY WRAP-UP

I've loved this week. I spent the week wrapping up projects for work so I could take off this coming week for traveling and Thanksgiving. All day Saturday and Sunday, I spent time interning at Blogshop and had an amazing time! I'll be sharing lots of photos from my adventure later. ;) After dropping off the girls at the airport last night, I drove to Jenny's just in time for our closet switch party! I've loved this season of meeting new friends and doing things that align with my passions.

This week is filled with traveling and food! We are having two Thanksgivings this week. One in Georgetown, SC, with Jon's family and the other with my family here in Georgia. I love the holidays...Thanksgiving, Christmas. This is my favorite time of the year. I DO need to get into the Christmas spirit though...even though I'm insanely excited about it...it just doesn't feel Christmasy. We are planning to decorate this Sunday...so maybe that will help? I'll blast the Christmas music and "deck the halls"...I think that will make things better. :) 

Snapshot(s) of the Week: 1// Giant Kyo. We took him to the vet today and he weighs over 13 pounds. Big boy! BUT he's not fat...just healthy and big. ;) 2// Love this ridiculously huge scarf. 3// Yummy lunch. 4// Getting ready for the students to arrive at Blogshop. I'll share more pictures later today. :)

  5. I just started reading your blog, it's great to find people who also live in the south. I'm from SC and I don't think I know ANY bloggers around here! I look forward to reading your posts!

  6. Sounds like you have some nice things going on at the moment:)
    And I'm not sure what you plated up there, but it looks delicious!

    Also, I'll give that nap idea a try. I always seem to wake up more tired when I sleep during the day, but maybe this will help...
