Harry Potter Reference

Have you ever wished you had a Time-Turner?  .... because I have.  I've been really wishing I had one recently.  You know- a really little hour glass that you wear around your neck to go back in time whenever you wish! It would be aweeesome. 

I feel like time is going by so quickly (and lets face it as a teacher who loves the summer, it's kind of nice), but I also feel like it's hard to savor some of the good moments.  Before you can blink they are gone and you can't get them back!   I just need to remember to enjoy every little second and take more pictures :)

Our New York Thanksgiving

In my last post I mentioned that we went to New York City over Thanksgiving.  We were very blessed and had the chance to spend the week visiting my sister and roaming the city.  Although I have visited her multiple times since she moved a few years ago, this is the first time that we made a vacation out of it and were there for 5 days!  It was super fun, super fun, super fun (and did I say super fun?)  We lucked out on the weather situation as well.  It was chilly but very nice almost every day we were there (I'm not talking the 70 degree weather we had in Oklahoma over Thanksgiving, but it was nice none-the-less...) 

Our favorite New York memories had to have been, in no particular order:
1. Seeing Newsies! It was awesome, people!!! (hence the overuse of exclamation marks)
2. Watching the parade from my sister's office window
3. Roaming Central Park for hours one day
4. Delicioso cookies from this yummy bakery.  Go there! I'm serious!
5. Staying at Sissy's place in Brooklyn...I felt so hip :) 
Oh ya, and having her take me to my favorite restaurant in New York- The Meatball Shop 

We hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Here are some pics from our trip!

Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday

So thankful I was able to spend the week in New York with my husband, sister and parents! It was a fun trip with tons of walking and lots and lots of eating (among other fun things). More on the trip later but for now, have a Happy Black Friday! Here's to hoping you score some good deals!

Some Tuesday Listening

Because sometimes we need a little pick-me-up.... no matter the day of the week...

Grace and Jeff's Wedding Weekend

We had a blast this weekend celebrating Jeff and Grace's wedding!  It was such a beautiful, elegant wedding.  Everything was so sweet from the colors, the cake, the flowers and the Bride.  She looked so gorgeous and made the absolute perfect Bride!  We started the weekend off with a Bridesmaid Lunch, and Nail Party and ended it by dancing it up at a fabulous reception.  Everything was so planned and organized (in true Grace fashion) that the weekend was so smooth and relaxing!  Here are some pics.

Beautiful Bride!

We like to dance
