Happy Anniversary To Me! (And My Husband, Too)

I have been married three years today. In some ways it seems like it went by in no time, but in other ways it seems like we've been married for much longer. Which isn't a bad thing.

I love the family we have created. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Is Thanksgiving REALLY This Week?

I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving. As in, two days from now, it's Thanksgiving. It doesn't seem possible. This year has flown!

I'm really looking forward to watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. It's kind of a tradition. I think it really started one year at my friend Rachel's sleepover party. In fact, Rachel's birthday is today! We watched the parade on TV and ever since then, I've had to watch it every year from start to finish. It is so cheesy but it is totally great. I don't know why I keep blathering on about this, but I can't stop!!!

When I had my internship in New York, the parade went directly down our street. We all worked on Thanksgiving, which they do every year, and people brought their kids in to watch the parade from our windows. It was kind of a dream come true for me.

I think for the first time ever, I might do the whole Black Friday shopping thing. The whole getting up at 3 a.m. thing. We'll see. My cousin Bonnie and I were talking about it today at lunch and she sort of talked me into it. Sort of. Speaking of Bonnie, she was featured on a segment on the Rachael Ray Show today - the "Rach to the Rescue" segment. It was pretty awesome. She learned how to prepare a real Thanksgiving meal. As in, one that doesn't come from boxes! Everyone should check out the clip at!

That's about it. This is kind of a lame post, but I'm tired. Word.

Wow, I Haven't Posted In Awhile!!

I don't know what that's about. I would really like to post more frequently. So, here I go.

Random things that are going on...

Brian's birthday was Friday. I took the day off. Brian is THE worst person to shop for. Tucker and I agree on that. Neither of us could find ANYTHING to get him!! It's really impossible. So we decided that Tucker is going to get him a chalk rack that he wants to for his pool table, and I'm going to get him the jeans and hiking boots he wants, whenever he gets around to picking them out. Because so help me if I pick them out myself. He is so damn particular.

Next comes our anniversary, which is the 26th. I think that's the day before Thanksgiving. I think. So, again, I have no clue what to get my husband of three years. Did I mention that he is the worst person to shop for?

Tucker is seven months old! He's scooting/crawling all over the place. I think now would be a great time to baby-proof things. I'm pretty sure babies shouldn't be around plastic bags. Yeah. Other than that, we've discovered that Tuck is quite the comedian. He really loves to make people laugh. For instance, he makes this certain noise that never fails to get me laughing, and he loves it. He keeps doing it until he gets tired of my laughing, and then he crawls away. Usually to find a shoe to chew on. Again with the baby-proofing...

Hmm, what else? Oh yeah, my boss is no longer in her position at work. In fact, she's no longer at my office period. Let's just say there was a mutual agreement that everyone should move on. I miss her. :(

I think that's it for now. I promise to blog more frequently, because I know all you tens of readers are really clamoring for the next installment. Cheers!
