Favorite Things...It's Friday!

Here are a few of my Favorite Things from the month of November!

ONE - Hosting Thanksgiving for my family.  Don't get me wrong, it was a lot of work and I'm still tired from all that went into it but it was soooo worth it!  My mom and her sisters have been rotating as hosts for Thanksgiving for years.  It is our family tradition for them, the sisters, to do so and I was not born to be a host, my aunt explained.  Them allowing me to take on my mother's place in the rotation was such an HONOR!!!

TWO - Home!!!  Being a homeowner can be challenging but it's nothing like having your own.  I've realized that moreso this month due to the holiday's as we've had several guests. It's been a blessing to be able to welcome our family and friends into our home and just to have that foundation for our cute little family.

THREE - Watching this big beautiful tree turn from green to what you see below over this past month.  It's right outside our tall kitchen windows and greets me every morning when I open the shutters.  I've loved standing Maddie up in front of the window to watch the leaves fall while I cook.  I also use to love climbing trees when I was little (tomboy phase) and this tree looks perfect for that or a tire swing, perhaps, for Maddie :)!

FOUR - These three shows (Revenge, Grey's Anatomy & Scandal)!  Talk about some amazing episodes this season!  Forget Friday's I'm living for Sunday's and Thursday's.  Like seriously, I'm somewhat obsessed with these characters, especially Olivia.  I wanted to name my daughter Olivia but the hubby thought it sounded old...maybe, but it's SO pretty! And that dress she wore in this week's episode was some kind of AMAZING (sing that word when you read it, I did :)!!!

FIVE - This photo of our pretty little Maddie-girl!  She looks so cute and innocent.  We want her to look this way FOREVER!!!  She turned 9 months old on Monday, 11/26 (time is truly flying) and she's begun to stand on her own, even clap at herself while doing it, AND cruising along the furniture.  So yes, pretty soon she'll be walking around to get into everything.  Oh wait, she's getting into everything already :)!  Plus she's reppin' our alma mater and is just too cute doing it (GO STATE)!!!

As always, I love hearing this song on Friday, stay at home mom or not!

Enjoy "today" everyday!!!
