a little more love left for november

before november becomes but a distant memory and for posterity if  nothing else, i’d love to share a few memories.( i think i still need to for september & october as well. anyone with me on this?)

dan turned the big 55. we celebrated the evening with sir elton john. such an amazing entertainer & perhaps one of the best performers who sounds live exactly like he did, on the radio, so many years ago.

caroline successfully whipped up a knot blanket as quickly as she all of sudden began to look 15. what the heck.november-004

madi cleaned her room. at that my friends is worthy of documenting. she also whipped up this canavas you see as well. glittered kissy lips & sassy shades for her makeup desk.november-005

i got my first gel mani & apparently, almost 3 weeks later, it’s still holding strong.

& speaking up whipping things up. check out these cute whipping cream thingies from trader joes.

emi competed in the miss parkview pageant & looked amazing! her community service & heart for those around her are both qualities i value and am so proud of!!…can we have a collective moment of silence for her drop dead gown? ( loaned to her by miss alabama, 2nd runner up). my shots don’t do this baby justice.miss phs 2013 104

thanksgiving was so much fun this year. we spent the day with my brother corey & sister in law cindy and several of her neices & nephews. we sang songs like 5 fat turkeys are we and ate all the tradition dishes and then i think we sang 5 fat turkeys are we. again.

all the girls ( sans madi & i-she worked black friday & saturday at anthropologie) headed out at 10 pm thursday evening and shopped all night long. meanwhile, i slept like a baby.

madi wore this

often times i’m running around & need a smaller camera bag that will keep her safe but still look stylish. so, this little ona baby to the rescue.

day 2 of the holiday house walk is in full swing!! start here

i’m finishing things up in preparation to welcome ya’ll in on thursday. let me tell you, i simplified even more this year. i chose a few of my favorite things-grouped them together, had savannah paint a gorgeous canvas & do a little chalkboard art, and dressed up our table & our tree. think silver & gold, antlers, mercury glass, african nativity scene…all is calm. all is bright. see you thursday!

katelyn - thank you for sharing your beautiful memories 🙂 I say it everytime I read, but you and your girls remind me of my mom and sisters oh so much….one young momma who has a heart of gold, loves the lord, loves her girls and supports them in everything….a single mother until my now stepfather came along and raised us and loved us as his own. one of these days i’m going to have to send ya a photo of us….or even better arrange a photoshoot for our growing family! love your work..love your words..can’t wait to see your holiday home tour!
-hugs from sc!

Beth - Paige,

Where did you get your sweet little hedgehog dish? Anthro? He is adorable. Isn’t Kitchen Basics the best? I was pleasantly surprised to discover it’s made by a company 15 minutes from my house.. I am constantly restocking it in my pantry. Hope you’re enjoying this holiday season with friends and family. Xoxo

Kellie - Looks like a great November! 🙂

BTW which bag is that? It’s hard to compare the stock photos. There are many times I think ugh I don’t want to carry my big camera bags today so I end up not taking my camera!
