Last night Ryan and I went through our calendars in an effort to select a date for our Friendsgiving extravaganza! We had the best time preparing traditional Thanksgiving dishes for our friends last year and are excited to host the fun event again this year.
My sister came in town the Friday before Friendsgiving last year and we spent the entire day prepping, cooking and baking and had a blast. It’s one of my favorite memories from 2011!
After glancing at our calendars, Ryan and I realized our November is pretty packed. The only free weekend we had in Ocala together was the weekend of November 3, so the date for Friendsgiving pretty much selected itself.
My everlasting love for PicMonkey had me on the site last night creating a fun little invitation to send to our friends this morning:
I swear, if I could create fun little images on PicMonkey all day long, I’d be a happy camper. It’s so darn user friendly and it satisfies my desire to be a little creative without the need for super-messy craft supplies.
Breakfast this morning was a two-parter.
I started with two slices of Nature’s Own cinnamon raisin toast topped with a bit of butter.
A toast craving hit me hard this morning, so I went with it. I knew toast wouldn’t keep me full for long and about 30 minutes later, I made myself a bowl of scrambled eggs with chicken sausage, broccoli and cauliflower for a little punch of protein.
Much more filling!
Question of the Morning
- What is the busiest month of the year for you?
October, November and December are usually the busiest months for us, but I think that’s quite common because of the holidays. Between fall birthdays, anniversaries and the usual holidays, the last three months of the year are usually pretty packed for our little family.
