–Seeing all the Black Friday ads is bumming me out a little this year. Every year since I was 10 years old, my mom and I went out with the crazies for Black Friday shopping. It is one of my most favorite days of the year!!! This year I won’t be participating because hello, super hella pregnant over here! Ordering online just isn’t the same. It was more about spending the entire day with my mom.
–Speaking of sales, I opened my email this morning to see a Kate Spade Surprise sale!!! Man those 75% off deals are super tempting. I saw so many cute purses and jewelry in this one this morning.
–I am less than thrilled about the book I started reading last week and haven’t cared to even pick it up the last several days. I am not sure if it is the fact that the book just doesn’t thrill me, or if I am in a reading slump and need a break. I am not forcing it.
–Every time I feel off or my stomach starts cramping I think….is this it??? Talk about some anxiety!!! Someone was having a moving party at 2am this morning and kept me up for over an hour and a half. That would explain the scattered post today. I have my 39 week doctor appointment this morning so I will find out if I have had any progress since last week.
–I love love love that it is finally cold enough to turn the heat on at night. What I don’t love about having the heat on? Nose bleeds! Every damn day. Does this happen to anyone else? This has been my life for as long as I can remember.
–When is the last time you had a Thomas English Muffin? I forgot how amazing they are toasted with some butter!
–Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions? When I was little, we would always put our Christmas tree up Thanksgiving night while watching Eddie and the Cruisers. I have no clue how it came to be this movie, it is not a holiday movie and has nothing to do with Thanksgiving or Christmas. It is just what we did. My mom always bought a box of fancy assorted chocolates for the occasion. Then Friday morning we would get up early and go shopping.
Now as an adult, we spend our Thanksgiving split between Chris’s parents for lunch and usually my mom for dinner and then my mom and I head out around 9 or 10 pm to go shopping and return around 4 or 5 pm the next day. Except this year. This year we are just going to Chris’s parents house. My mom is skipping out on Thanksgiving since we are so close to my delivery date and my sister never comes over for her dinner anymore because they have other plans on Thanksgiving.
I leave you with this song from the movie that I absolutely love. The entire soundtrack is awesome and brings back so many memories!
And because I cant leave out this song either, I am sharing it as well. The guitar and sax in this one gives me chills. This video is directly from the movie.
