I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.

I sure did.

Ate way to much food, laughed a lot, and even relaxed.

And now it's on to Christmas...
I've yet to buy a gift.
I'm working on it though.
No worries.
I'm basically a professional procrastinator.

I don't do the whole Black Friday ordeal.
To be honest its kind of scary.

I would rather pay a couple extra dollars to NOT deal with the crowd.

Did anyone take advantage of the sales today?
I'd love to hear what bargains you found.

Help a girl out ;)

Thanksgiving In Your Mouth

I don't know about you but it seems Thanksgiving has crept up on me. I think maybe it's because I've been preoccupied or maybe it's just because everyone seems to start celebrating Christmas October 31st.

Sorry if you're one of those people.... :)

Don' t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas but Thanksgiving is so enjoyable. It just seems like a lot less stress.

Actually I kind of forgot it was even the Holiday Season...

Baahummbugg... I know

Don't you worry though...

I got a good COLD dose of reality when I stepped into Leopold's this past weekend and saw Pumpkin Spice as a featured flavor.

You betcha I had a scoop, or two, or actually i think it was three scoops but who's counting.

Basically it was like Thanksgiving in your mouth.

Lucky for you I saved you a bite.

A Beautiful Place

We had a great trip.

Meeting Liz and her AweSoME assistant Meg was exactly as I'd imagined.

We were all fast friends.

They get me. They love crusty vintage goodness as much as I do.

They don't miss a thing and I'm so thankful they see the big picture.

The natural beauty of this place is stunning.

I get giddy envisioning it on our wedding day.

We also got to do some site-seeing and shopping
(stick around for some vintage goodness).

We did quite a bit of walking.

But who minds that when your in a GORGEOUS city.

We also visited an amazing bakery.

These are the lovely ladies from Back In The Day.

The owner, Cheryl, in the middle, is such a sweetie.

This place is a must-see/visit if you're ever in Savannah.

And Boy do they make a mighty GoOd cupcake.

And a yummy Chai Latte

Just A Big Little Kid

Yes, It's true. In less than 7 months I will be a married woman. I know, I know, I've not posted much detail about the wedding lately. To be completely honest, I feel a little disconnected. I am super excited to get married. I'm excited to walk down the aisle in front of friends and family and see my best friend waiting for me... To spend the rest of our lives together. However, I feel disconnected. Disconnected from the planning process. I always thought I would be the annoying, frantic, nervous, anxious, obsessed bride-to-be.

I don't think I'm there.

It's all just a little bittersweet.

The planning process is bittersweet.

As many of you know Mr.R's mother passed away a little less than a month ago. I know, if she were here, the rehearsal dinner would be planned, she'd already have an awesomely cute dress picked out for Cait and she'd have an abundance of honeymoon options just waiting on silly ole me to give my input. She was very much a planner. Organized beyond belief. She would be so excited for our upcoming trip to Charleston.

But, she won't be joining us.

At least not physically.

I know she'll be there in spirit though.

Although I'm disappointed and saddened she couldn't be here with us, she gave me a very special gift...

Her son.

A "Big" little kid that I will get to call my hubby.

A man, who in all his childlike wonder takes a running slide down my hallway,

who cannonballs into bed,

who sings like the "song bird of his generation,"

who dances in the middle of the living room until I acknowledge his actions,

who makes me laugh and see the good in all situations regardless of the outcome.

I'm thankful that he'll be by my side...
