The Thanksgiving I lost 7 lbs. {InstaFriday}

Happy Friday to me.

Nothing says "Family Night"...or "I need these about as much as I need a hole in the head" a bag of these precious little jewels.

Just Dance. #familynight

Or a little Just Dance on the Wii.

It only took refusing my children's desperate pleas to actually have a turn, and pulling muscles I did not even know I had, but I managed to get high score of the night.

Not that I'm counting or anything.

5K for Haiti. This guy is super special to our family. #missions

I participated in my first ever 5K last week. A friend of ours is raising funds for a return trip to Haiti.

Haiti is special to us...and so is Makenson.

On his wish list.  #teenagers

Dear Santa, my 15 year old just added this to his wish list.


And his momma just added these bad boys.

I may have just replaced my yoga pants. ::gasp::

Gonna be a late night. Lordy mercy I love this movie. #camprhett

I found a Gone With the Wind marathon one night and stayed up till 3am watching it.

It is one of my favorite movies ever.

I just don't get Scarlet's whole fascination with Ashley though.

Team Rhett all the way.

Winter Cabin. My fav this year.

This is my new favorite Bath and Body Works scent...Winter Cabin.

The perfect blend of spice, evergreen, and burning wood.

Pumpkin cheesecake. #dessert

Thanksgiving was fabulous.

It's hard to have a bad time when Pumpkin Cheesecake shows up.

Just Dance. My husband and mom. Hilarious. #blackeyepeas

What better way to work off those 45 fat grams per slice, or make a complete fool of yourself, than a little Just Dance with the fam??

Day 4 of stomach flu. Day 2 of strictly this stuff. Day 4 of misery

I'm so glad that Thanksgiving day was so fabulous...because the days that followed were hell on Earth.

In fact this would be my diet for the next week.

I woke up extremely ill with a stomach flu.

I would remain in the bed, or hovering over a toilet, for the next 4 days.

Never been so sick in all. my. life.

I'm pretty sure at one point I was crying for my mother.

Dropped 7 lbs from Friday to Sunday.

Not good.

Laundromat. Washing away germs. #begonestomachflu

Thanks to lots of prayer, a superman of a husband, a can of Lysol, and a trip to the laundry mat, I seem to be on the mend.

We picked out our Christmas tree this week.

One of my favorite things to do.

Every year we visit Ben.

He sells Christmas trees.... and defends our country.

Two years ago he was in Iraq and we missed him dearly.

Feels good to give him our business.

Tomorrow's Family Night will include wassail, a little Nat, and tree trimming.  #Christmas #traditions

She's 8 feet of evergreen beauty.

Tonight's "family night" will be all about dolling her up.

How about you?

Do you have your tree up yet?
