The fourth Thursday in November is my favorite Thursday

Thanksgiving our way.

We don’t always have Dom Perignon, but when we do call it B*tch Champagne.
I’ll explain in another post, because it’s pretty funny.

 We took our family Christmas card pics on Thanksgiving minus our Lolo.

Nathan was finally able to fly up and spend some time with Lolo this week. On Thanksgiving they drove about 5 hours south to spend some time with Nathan’s Mom and family. So, Lolo wasn’t with us, but she was with them and that made me happy.

I’ve taken down my Thanksgiving tree and hope to put up my Christmas tree soon.
We had a great day with awesome people and fabulous food.

I’m just pulling your leg hairs….I don’t have a Thanksgiving tree. Yet.

I hope everyone had an equally blessed day!

Smoking, singing, Thanksgiving-ing.

Happy Tuesday before Thanksgiving!
We’re all a ‘flutter around here and it’s not just the butterflies.

As I type this, we have two guys removing & replacing (banging) some wood floors in the theater/party room, new countertops will be delivered soon and the plumber and electrician are on schedule for tomorrow morning.
All I asked for when we started talking about this project 6 months ago was that it was completed by Thanksgiving. So, if the workers depart 10 minutes before we eat, the Coach has come through. 🙂

The Coach is a busy smoking bee. On Friday he and some of our awesome employees smoked 700 lbs of turkey that will be delivered to the Bahamas, then he and my Uncle smoked 150 lbs of turkey on Sunday for the homeless that we delivered on Sunday evening.

Need anything smoked? He’s your guy. 
Saturday night we headed to a private party where some of our favorite songwriters were performing. 

Wyatt Durrette and the Coach. Wyatt won the Song of the Year at the Country Music Awards a few weeks ago for Luke Combs “Beautiful Crazy”. (I think that makes 17 or 18 #1 songs he’s written) He’s a beautiful soul and we always enjoy our time with him. 

Our Friend Patrick Davis also performed at the party. (along with Levi Lowery) They’re such sweet souls with lots of talent and we’re proud to call them friends because they are also very charitable.

It always pays to spend time with good friends. Suz got an unsolicited breast exam from Phyllis. Good news, I’m healthy!

My Aunt and Uncle arrived on Saturday and will spend the week with us, my Cuz Patrick arrives today. We only have 8 of us for Thanksgiving, so it will be small and intimate. Totally manageable and  I won’t lose my remaining 3 marbles.

Wishing everyone a beautiful week and Thanksgiving day with those that you love to hang with and *cheers* to not losing your marbles!!
