Recent Health Kick

Good morning everyone! Recently I have been on a health kick. I bought a new water bottle in an attempt to drink more water.

I love the colors of it and it is so handy. I got it from TJMaxx and payed $10. Probably a lot for a water bottle. Maggie and I have started back walking together. She loves to get out and she doesn't get as hot since it's cooler weather. It's also fun to see all the Christmas decorations everyone has up instead of just walking by them all.

The leash shown is Lupine brand and has a lifetime warranty on it. Even if Maggie chewed it up all I would have to do is take it back to the vet's office and get a new one. They do all the hard work for me, like mailing it back in to the company. My shoes {you can barely see} are Nike Free's. Love them! They are the most comfortable tennis shoes I have ever owned. At $100 they are kinda pricey but totally worth every penny.

Maggie and I take selfies together first thing in the morning. She loves to cuddle with me, sometimes. Back to the Health kick, For Christmas this year I am asking for a FitBit Flex. A bracelet that tracks how many steps you walk, calories burned, tracks your sleep, silently wakes you with a vibrating alarm, I can set goals for myself and see my results right from my smart phone. I so hope I am fortunate to receive one as a gift! I hope ya'll are having a ton of fun getting ready for Christmas. Only 17 days left! 

Have a wonderful rest of you Monday!

Thankful Tree

On Thanksgiving this year at Mine and Grandad's house we started a new tradition. We made a thankful tree. What's a thankful tree you ask? A tree with bare branches where each member of the family put a tag with something they are thankful for. After everyone has written what they are thankful for we had to pick a random tag off the tree, that wasn't ours, and guess which member of the family wrote it. It was so much fun to see what everyone was thankful for. Even the young children had a blast and realized how special it was.

This was such a fun and special activity, I hope we continue it every Thanksgiving to come!

Bust Busy Busy! {and cookies}

Well I had hoped on finishing out my thankful things but since it is already December I think i'm done. This thanksgiving was hectic to say the least.  we went to Charlie's grandparents and then to my grandparents then the next day all the way back home to Manteo to do some Christmas shopping and spend some quality time with my Granny. I'm so glad to have her. Sunday before church Caroline, my sister, and I made some wonderful sugar cookies. I fixed the dough and chilled it over night Saturday. I picked up some precious cookie cutters from a local kitchen supply store and we just had a blast.

 We had the best time decorating the cute little cookies. We decorated with all the things we had at my Granny's house.Painting them with BBQ brushes and making polka dots with shrimp de-veiners. Don't worry they were clean. 
 Caroline wanted a monogrammed deer, which turned out very cute. She said hers didn't turn out good at all so I has to do it for her. 
 Our preppy Christmas cookies (:
Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of December as much as myself. I intend on showing you much more festive things going on in my life.
