It was nice to get out with some women that I usually only see at work.
Teachers know how to have fun!
My night out did make me realize that the "club" and "party" scene aren't really my style. Don't get me wrong; I like my beer, but I decided to be the driver that night just because I'm not a big fan of going out and drinking a lot.

Hub's family does live 2 hours away from us so holidays have always been something that we have had to compromise on. Thankfully it has always worked out perfect. Heres a run down of our schedule:
5pm - dinner party with my dad's side of the family
8pm - desserts and presents with my mom's side of the family
Home to wait for Santa
breakfast with my family and presents
lunch - head to Hub's parents for Christmas
then we usually go to the beach for a few days.
not really sure what the plans are for that this year.
I can't wait to get started on my own Christmas card for this year.

The same black man has been working at The Beacon since it opened in the early 1960's. When you walk in he yells at you to "Hollar it out" which means please place you order. You then move down the line with you tray an pick up you sweet tea (which is supposed to be world famous but it had lemon flavoring in it and neither I nor momma was crazy about it) and your food.
I got the cheeseburger-a-plenty. My cheeseburger is somewhere underneath the pile of french fries and onion rings. The burger wasn't anything to brag about but the onion rings were very yummy. We were going to get a famous milkshake but all the middle schoolers were in line so we decided to hit up McDonalds for a caramel frappe.
All in all I wouldn't hurry back to The Beacon. It was neat to go but I've definelty had better burgers elsewhere.

I love this post. I finally get to share my new bag with ya'll. This purse was originally $75. I found it on sale for $30. Then I had an extra $10 coupon and a few dollars on a store credit allowing me to get this bag for only $5!!! It is HUGE! And holds everything I would ever need it to hold.
Here are some things that you will always find in my bag:
~at least 2 chapsticks
~Bath and Body Works lotion in Twilight Woods
~a book (yes, I am this much of a book worm)
~1,000000 pony tail holders
~1,500 sticky notes
~bottle of water

I have talked about how close Jeff and I have always been on here before. I'm sure at one point he was the annoying little brother but the only memories I have of us are great ones.

My way-to-short beach trip was wonderful! It was so nice to have a couple of days off work and just relax and not be stressed out by constant paperwork and distractions.
We got down Sunday afternoon and after getting settled in we went to eat crab legs. Yummy! They were so delicious! Sunday it was early to bed for me. Monday it was beautiful so we went and set on the beach after a scrumptious breakfast of homemade waffles, livermush, and biscuits. I took off walking and was so relieved just to have some time to myself and think.
After some rest and lots of reading (yay!) we went to get the best steak in the world. I'm telling you the honest truth when I say this steak is the best thing ever. The rolls and garlic mashed potatoes are not to shabby either. After dinner we went to Broadway at the Beach for a drink and some Monday Night Football. My momma is a huge Colts fan so we had to go watch the game with her. I love it when your in a bar and the loudest person in there is your momma hollaring at a football game. Bless her.
After some Krispy Kreme doughnuts, yes we did eat a lot on this trip; my jeans are a little tight today, it was off to bed for this super tired girl. We got up Tuesday, ate breakfast and headed home. I cannot wait for my next beach trip. I seriously think I could move there.

Everyone was asked to wear pink to school and to the game Friday in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and after two surgeries and radiation she has been cancer free for almost 7 years.
