Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 247

I'm thankful for Thanksgiving (today) and that it gives us a reason to reflect on our lives and all of the things that we have to be thankful for. I sure have a lot to be Thankful for. I have the greatest family that I love dearly. I have been blessed with a great job and the opportunity to travel all over the world. I have been blessed with great health and good friends that care about me and love to play with me. I have everything that I need and more and I am so thankful for all of that.

It has been so great to have all of my siblings and their families in town this week. Every day after work I just go hang out at my parents house with all of the family and I love it. Only wish that I didn't have to work so that I could have done more with them. We don't ALL get to be together that often, so I'm really grateful for when we do get the chance to.

I'm still watching Gilmore Girls. I'm half way done with the 6th season and then I only have one more season left.

I'm still car shopping, although I'm hoping to be done soon.... REAL soon. I'm not looking forward to how expensive it's going to be... but it needs to be done and I AM excited to be driving a new car. After I get my new car I won't be excited about the process of selling my old car. Hopefully it won't be too big of a pain and I will be able to sell it quickly.

I already got my Southeast Asia book in the mail. It came so fast! I'm also just about done with my Italy and Greece book. I felt like I did that pretty quickly. I am really happy with how the Southeast Asia book turned out. Even though it is a little bit of a pain to put together, I'm glad that I do it, they are so nice to have. Next I need to put together the video of the Italy & Greece trip. Typically I do that before the book gets done... but I guess I just got in book mode.

I went to the fish store this week and I bought new coral for my tank. I tried to get a different color to mix things up. One day I hope my tank will just be all jazzed up. It looks better and better all of the time and I feel like I have it more and more under control. My coral and fish are doing great and I don't have the green algae taking over the tank anymore which is awesome. I hated trying to pick it out all of the time. It's become a pretty fun hobby and I will continue to add to it little by little.

I haven't been very strict on my diet... but I need to be. Today I ate WAY too much. But it's Thanksgiving and everything looked so good so I tried a little bit of everything. I don't regret it, but I do need to get back on track now.

We brought much and mingle back in our ward. I feel like people have started singing my praises as being new Activities co-chair. Now if we can pull off the Ward Christmas party the way I vision it... I think we can call Ian and I a success. I couldn't ask for a better partner in this calling. I REALLY appreciate Ian and his enthusiasm. I tell him all the time how awesome I think he is and how glad he is my co-chair. Co-chairs make all the difference. Not only is he enthusiastic, but he is also super organized. He started a google spreadsheet to keep track of our budget and everything. He is great... I'm still a little stressed about our Christmas party because we pretty much don't have anything and we have a week to put it together... but I think we can do it. Wish me luck!

I think that is about all I have to confess. Happy Thanksgiving. I hope it was great.

How does that even happen? I ate way too much too... or it felt like it. But when I looked at my plate it wasn't that full. Weird.
