Motivation Monday + My Thanksgiving Break
I hope that you have had the most wonderful time this past week with your families, friends and the people who are nearest and dearest to your heart. The past two ( 1 / 2 ) Mondays I have shared with you what I have done over the weekend, I will continue this pattern because I absolutely have been loving the responses that I have been getting.
|Repeat this to yourself every single day. |
This week, I am going to challenge myself to go
24 hours without complaining. There I will take
myself to see how much my life has changed.
|This is going to be my mantra for the|
next three weeks leading into Christmas Break.
I left the south on Wednesday and travelled up to the great northeast with my family to visit my aunt and uncle for Thanksgiving. I was greeted there with with temperatures of 32 and beautiful snow on the ground. This was completely a whirlwind experience because I rarely see snow.
|My puppy, Lucy, came along for turkey. :)|
|My uncle works in New York City. On his way home he stopped at famous Carlo's Bakery and welcomed us weary travelers with these super delectable cookies.|
After getting settled, we went out for a little pre-Thanksgiving/Black Friday shopping. Actually, I had a pair of Bean Boots on hold at the local LL Bean store. I went there, tried them on and fell completely in love with them. I cannot wait to wear them in the winter time.
|The new beauties. They are 6in. Bean Boots.|
|I also splurged a bit and bought a super cute Boat and Tote in Navy.|
Thanksgiving Day was spent inside watching the parade and lounging about and eating. I was stille a bit shaky from the night before but for the most part I was okay. I was so thankful for my health at this point.
|I took Lucy for a brisk walk outside.|
|Bean Boot swooning.|
|I sampled this most amazing peppermint batch. #WelcomeChristmas|
|This is my fireplace mantle. I just LOVE the owls.|
