Happy Thanksgiving!  After an amazing 8 mile run this morning, my day has been spent doing a crazy amount of cooking, with a beach walk and some much needed down time.  I thought about doing a list of things I’m thankful for (since I totally am not together enough to post one thing every day for the entire month of November) but I’m not feeling it today, plus you all like pictures better so I figured I’d share some pictures of things I’m thankful for (obviously not all-inclusive, you can’t take a picture of everything!)  Hope you have an awesome Thanksgiving!

So you know that dog from the movie “Up” who was totally engaged in a conversation and then would see a squirrel and totally change the subject? Well that’s what this post is going to be like. I feel like there’s a million different things to say and none of them are really related so here it goes:

1. I like lists (thus why this is going to be written in list format haha)

2. I’m hoping to get up before parks and Andrew tomorrow so I can go on a 6 mile run by myself- wish me luck:)

3. Still can’t get over how cute this one looked in her Halloween costume. I’m thinking we need a few more excuses to dress her up before she grows out of it


4. Red cups are back at Starbucks. Totally made my day (plus the fact that I could get Starbucks since I had a coupon for a free drink!)


5. Still on a popcorn kick. I love that stuff

6. Today I finally used the lulu gift card I got for my birthday. Can’t wait until my package comes:)

7. I think Parker is finally getting settled into a normal sleep pattern! Between our move to Andrews parents and then to out house and all the craziness going along with that (and maybe a growth spurt in the middle) she hasn’t been sleeping that well at night (waking every 3 hours to eat) thankfully she’s a quick ear and fall back asleep baby. Last night she went over 6 hours without a peep! It was amazing:)

8. I did this workout from my friend Abby. I’m pretty sure Ill be sore tomorrow.


9. Remember Parker’s photo shoot last week? Well we got a sneak peek today

20131101-210909.jpg. I can’t wait to see the rest!!

10. This girl gets herself into more and more every day. She’s gonna be walking in no time. I better watch out


#1) I love family group txts


(Yes my sisters are goofy)

#2) I’m pretty sure we’re going to end up eating popcorn every night #ilovepopcorn


#3) parks and I went on a glorious run today. The weather was amazing. Did you get to enjoy it?


#4) Pretty sure my baby is a genius.


#5) Read this post, absolutely amazing

#6) just had to add this picture – because I’m pretty sure she’s the cutest


Well it’s been a whirlwind few days around here (or not around here, since it feels like we haven’t been home at all!)

A few highlights:

Shopping for an outfit for pictures with Aunt Carolina.  We ended up with a mega cute outfit and matching hat which parks is modeling here.. Isn’t she adorable?


A photo shoot with Plum Speckled Photography.

They did Parkers newborn photo shoot which turned out AMAZING, so we had to get them to shoot some more pictures because this little one is just growing too fast.

We had a few things to take care of during the day, and after church headed out for a friends surprise 40th birthday party!  The party was for my friend Whitney, who I used to work with.  It was nice to get to catch up with her and some other friends that I haven’t seen in a bit! (and reminded me that I am so grateful to be staying at home this fall:))

A visit with Parker’s G-Mack (my dad).  His fav thing to do when she visits is take selfies with her.


case and point



A big bowl of home popped popcorn to eat while catching up on TV for the week (no worries I still have about 8 shows left to watch from last week, meaning I’ll be watching season finales when everyone else is getting amped up for season premieres again next year).  And, I may or may not have completely finished the bowl before Andrew got any…
