Thankful For :: 671 - 680

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. We had several out-of-town family members and friends come in throughout the week, so it was fun to spend some time catching up with them all. Peter had Thursday and Friday off from work, but I was scheduled to work 8-5 on Friday. This caused a bit of disappointment for me as we always go get our Christmas tree while everyone else is madly rushing around, pepper-spraying fellow shoppers trying to get the best deals.

However, because people have better things to do on Black Friday than visit my place of employment (I know - so vague!), my boss let me go home for the day at noon, when I was supposed to be leaving for lunch. {Happy Dance} That meant that Friday afternoon found us zooming in a caravan of cars up the mountain and into North Carolina to our favorite cut-your-own Christmas tree farm. Our house is now fully Christmas-ified, and with the snowcapped mountains all around us, it's beginning to feel a lot more like Christmas!

This week I'm thankful for...

671. Getting off early on Friday so the tree tradition could continue

672. The Christmas ringtones that my dear husband put on my cell phone for me

674. Surviving work on Monday - all those people who didn't come on Friday? They showed up on Monday...grumpy.

675. The smell of pine

676. The glow of candlelight and Christmas twinkle lights

677. FREE Charlie Brown Trees (I told you it was a great farm!)


678. Spending time with out-of-town family

679. Brussels Sprouts - I've come a long way from my picky-eater days

680. My new (real leather) boots - an early 30th birthday gift from Peter and a total surprise
