I don't have much time to share everything today, so I am just dropping in to leave a few updates. bullet point style!

- We had a great Thanksgiving with each other and our families. I still can't believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone. Sad it went by so quickly!

- We went on our anniversary cruise and had the best time! It was so good to get away just the two of us, but goodness, we missed our sweet puppy so much!!

- We decorated for Christmas before we left and we are both so glad we did that! It was so nice to come home and enjoy them and not have to worry about pulling boxes out and getting started on decorating.

- I think we have both decided that taking the week after Thanksgiving off was one of the best ideas we have ever made....7 business days off, paid, and a total of 11 days AWAY from the office (6 of those without access to our work email!!!!) See what I mean, best idea ever.

- We have decided we need a gym membership and juicer for Christmas because Thanksgiving meals and then an all inclusive cruise....SO. MUCH. FOOD. #thankgoodnessforstretchypants

- I'll be sharing my Christmas cards soon! I was able to get some addressed and out before we left for our trip and I only have a few left.

- We bought a 12ft Christmas tree!!!! I'll share the story on that soon, but we are loving it!

Hopefully over the next couple of weeks I'll be able to recap our Thanksgiving, our cruise, our Christmas cards, our Christmas decorations, and some other fun Christmas related posts!

Here is one picture I took while we were in Cozumel...
definitely wishing this was my view again today! ;)

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with your families! I can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs from over the past two weeks.
