thankful for thanksgiving

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

I am so excited for Thanksgiving - you have no idea!

Reason #1- It's basically my vacation for the year....
Reason #2 - We are headed to Michigan to see family, and I know I'll be able to truly relax there.
Reason #3 - I always have a great time on road trips with my husband! 9.5 hours each way!
Reason#4 - Uh hello....the FOOD!

Now, all I have to do is get through these 2 weeks at work, which for now seems like it will take 2 years. I still have to make Abe's reservation at the doggy kennel spa/retreat (I love how the company makes it sound so luxurious), but then we are ready to hit the road. :)

Completely unrelated:
We have been doing a lot of work in the yard the past couple weeks (pictures to come). It's no where near where it needs to be but every little bit helps. It's sad to say, but the yard will take years of work for me to feel good about it.

We are going back to our kitchen designer on Thursday. We've had our plans for a few months and really let them soak in (figured out what we liked and disliked). So we are hoping the new ideas we bring to the table will be the winning plan. This is a huge (and expensive) part of our remodel and I just want it to be perfect!
