Although cleaning is a pain, having everyone for Thanksgiving gave me the perfect excuse to get it done without being able to come up with another excuse not to. Then, I got to decorate the house/table to get it ready for company! I enjoyed planning it so much, even though there wasn't much to plan, that I know that is my calling. I'll get there one day, when I'm able to quit the job I have and start my own. But back to Thanksgiving - it was great for our families to be able to come together. There aren't many couples who are lucky enough to have their respective families get along so well!
Unfortunately there are no pictures from the holiday :(
Kenny & I have a lot to be thankful for this season, even though we don't always focus on the positive:
Great loving families
Our new rental house, despite the leaks and all - it is more space!
The prospect of him entering medical or pharmacy school (it's better than those who don't attempt because they know they don't stand a chance)
My job "promotion" that came at the perfect time after we were married
And the list could go on!
The semester is OVER - another item to go on my list of thanks. Only 10 more days left of work before a two week break. Kenny & I are leaving for Disney in TWO WEEKS from today, wahoo!! Probably not doing much of the tourist thing (i.e. going to all the parks and such), but just relaxing! It will be very nice to get out of Carrollton.
I will leave you with this picture:

This year Kenny bought a fog machine. We have an uncovered courtyard off our front porch -- with a tarp to cover it, it made the perfect spot to pour out the fog and hold it in. The fog was so thick most of the night that you couldn't see through it! In addition to the fog, we had the theme music from the Halloween movies playing, pumpkins stabbed with machetes & hatches, carved pumpkins, and non-carved pumpkins. The turning point for our ideas were Kenny's & Tyler's masks. Tyler was dressed as Michael Myers & Kenny as Jason. Needless to say a few kids left crying -- and oddly & funny enough adults did too! I just dressed as a witch, as I usually do. We even had a kid ask if our house was haunted and if I was a real witch -- gotta love it!
Can't wait for next year's ideas!

Kenny & I had the chance to see him in concert at a small venue: The Reaves Arena at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry, GA this past Sunday afternoon. If you enjoy rock music and have then chance then I highly suggest you go see David Cook in concert; you won't be sorry!!
I had been dying to go to another fair since Kenny & I went to the 2006 Alabama National Fair in Montgomery. When I heard David Cook was going to be headlining the closing day of the GA Nat'l fair it sealed the deal for me. We bought tickets without thinking twice.
I can't wait to have another opportunity to see him in concert again.
Here's just a few of the pictures I took:
While we were there, these are some other sights we took in:
This coming weekend: I'm headed to Savannah on Friday with my Mom, aunts, & cousin Denise. Can't wait!!

On Friday Kenny, Tyler, & I went to the Bowdon Golf Course's driving range. I had always said that I wasn't the best golfer, I guess because I had never really tried. Soon, my story about my sister playing in golf tournaments around TN and that my Dad played golf alot went from my believing I didn't inherit that gene, to maybe I did. Now, I'm not saying I'm Tiger Woods or that I'll get a hole in one every time. But, I did surprise myself and Kenny with how I hit with his Big Bertha. And, Saturday we spent an evening in Douglasville for dinner.
Sunday, we got an itch for doing a home project. I'd been dying to get this particular comforter set since I saw it on Belk's website. Well, on Saturday it was on sale and I had an in-store coupon. I bought it, but it didn't match the color of our room. So, Sunday we went and bought paint and changed our drab blue & brown room into a warm and cozy one. There's still things to fix and decorations to add, but I think it's coming along beautifully!
Before with our blue walls and blue & brown comforter
After with our new comforter and warm "Earthy Ochre" walls!
