dear pumpkin pie, turkey, stuffing, and all that thanksgiving goodness. i cannot wait for you to get into my belly this thursday. 

dear edward, bella, renessme, jacob, entire cullen clan, charlie (should i go on and on?). you all made me tear up, gasp, scream, and made my heart hurt a little bit a lot. and in trying to convince myself that twilight is not over for forever, i re-read some of twilight before bed last night. best.idea.ever.

dear christmas movies. cannot wait to get the movie marathons going full on the day after thanksgiving. we are talking all the home alone movies, the holiday, the grinch, a christmas story, jingle all the way, elf,  and oh, so many more! 

dear last friday night. the mani/pedi night with the high school girls from my small group and church youth group turned out to be a total blast. i'm still loving and rocking my zebra striped grass green finger nail, thanks to sarah (most talented 8th grade nail artist i know - she is legit!). 

dear niece or nephew inside of my sister's belly. thanks for staying still enough for the doctor to take the first picture of you - eeeek! 

dear target christmas lady. i have not yet seen one Target commercial featuring you. you better not have gone into retirement without us knowing. you are my black friday hero. do not let me down.

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}
