Hello, Goodbye

Friday, November 1, 2013

Goodbye, October. 
Hello, November. Can you be a little more fallish for me? I have a scarf collection any gay man would swoon over, yet I've had zippo chances to wear them. Tragedy.

Goodbye, shaving.
Hello, No Shave Novemeber. (Bwhah. Sorry, Grahm!)

Goodbye, Halloween and Tom Hanks' themed costumes and stuffing our faces with ungodly amounts of candy. It's okay, fun size (ahem, bite size) doesn't count. Also, I'm pregnant so don't deny me my Almond Joys unless you want me to open a maternal can of whoop-buns.

Hello, my favorite holiday. Family and food and traditional Black Friday shopping. Pumpkin pie and stretchy pants, which is perfect since I'm constantly wearing yoga pants anyway. It's like this day was made for pregnant women. Get in my belly (the food not the baby, since she already is).
Goodbye, saving money. (Ha. I just laughed out loud.) 
Hello, Christmas preparations! Is it too soon to talk about how I want to decorate the house for the most wonderful time of the year? Grahm and I have been in the process of moving the past two Christmases, so this will be our first year that we actually get to join in on the festivities. We're going ALL OUT, people. Someone is gonna have to hold me back from those Hobby Lobby sales.

Goodbye, baby-preparation procrastination.
Hello, getting this nursery donezo.

Goodbye, missing my family.
Hello, countdown to Nashville (my last trip of the year/this pregnancy).

Goodbye, GFC. 
Hello, BlogLovin. I'm so late to the blog party (as always), but find me on BL please? 


Linking up with the beautiful Allison!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday too, and it definitely is because of all the awesome food. Mmmm now I need some green bean casserole and mac and cheese.

You already know how I feel about this... but... it's never too early to start thinking Christmas decorations! Let's have a Hobby Lobby date soon, please. Maybe even throw some Home Goods and Kirkland's in there for good measure.

And I'm all about November, there doesn't seem to be near as much pressure around Thanksgiving as there is for Christmas!
