This is what everyone will resemble tomorrow sometime!!!Lol
I am taking a break from getting everything ready to post.. I started cooking yesterday.. Things like the Chocolate Cherry cake, Pumpkin bread and Zucchini cake.. Today I will get the Dressing ready to be put in the oven tomorrow as soon as the turkey comes out. I have Lazy Peach Pie to make also.. Then this evening I will put the turkey in to brine over night then get up at 6am Thursday to put it in the oven.. Oh and I have the Cranberry sauce in a jar already made up. It's soooo Pretty!lol
A few things I am thankful for... Of course Always is My Merciful God, My beautiful Family and the life we have been given to live.. I cherish each and every day! I hope I never lose the appreciation I have for life in general. Its far from perfect but in all its imperfection it is worth living every moment.
I am also Thankful for 16 years of Marriage to my Sweet Redneck! This is us at our wedding reception 16 years ago... Gosh we were babies!! Our anniversary is Friday We will have all weekend to kick back and relax as the girls will be going to Nana and Grampies for the weekend! We cherish our time together and enjoy one anothers company. I am always sadden by couples who don't get to know each other well enough to be best friends. He is my best friend in this world! He has been and still is a great husband, friend and father to our girls even though he admits girls scare him to death!Lol
We dated for a year before we got married and it was an eventful year but so worth the life we have together. Its like we knew from the start it was meant to be. Because he was a little younger(2yrs & 9 months to be exact) some people said he would be fun to hang out with till I met the "right" guy...
We met at church and he played the bass on the platform at the time. I noticed he seemed to be looking in my direction an awful lot But wanted to be sure.. I was sitting on a whole row of girls between the ages of 13-18!lol I smiled at him and he turned red! It took him another 2 weeks to talk to me.. We haven't quit talking since.. Well At least for the most part there are times I threaten to not talk to him but it never works!
We have had ups and downs but we have stuck it out when it got hard. Fights/Arguments are loud and quickly over. Neither of us take marriage lightly. He told me then that he was getting married Once and that was it. He puts up with my crazy ideas, lack of organization and less than normal thinking... I am thankful for his OCD tendencies, resourcefulness and ability to finish what he started.. There is much more to both of us and we seem to compliment each other and bring out the best in each other.
Okay so I didn't mean to go on and on.. But I am so Thankful! I hope everyone has a Great Thanksgiving If you are in the U.S. If not have a great weekend!
P.S. Dont forget about the Giveaway It ends Friday night at midnight and I will post the winner sometime Saturday!
