Thanksgiving Week in the South

Happy Thanksgiving Week everyone! This is the week is when Curtis and I start getting ready for the big dinner! This is our 2nd Thanksgiving together, we cooked last year and we are cooking again this year too! Our loving dinner menu:

  • Turkey and Dressing
  • Green beans
  • and green bean casserole
  • Sweet potatoes casserole
  • Mash Potatoes
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Rolls
  • Pumpkin Cheese Cake
  • Homemade Cranberry Sauce.

I am wanting to make something with Chocolate but I am not sure on what yet. Any ideas?

Thanksgiving to me is the day to give thanks and the day that fall ends and to start getting ready for Christmas. I am wanting to put up our tree Friday or Saturday. I made a pretty Christmas wreath under $10 yesterday, which I love! Now I am needing a wreath holder so I can hang it on the door! Well this week I am hoping to blog little something about Thanksgiving. Like my favorite recipe, what I am thankful, photos, and maybe something more (:

the lovely wreath I made.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and Holiday!

xoxo, Court!

Holiday Diet Plan.

Ok this is  a note/Blog for a diet I am wanting to do and I want to start now. I  think If I diet before and after each holiday (thanksgiving and Christmas) that It wont be so bad to eat like crazy on those too days.

I copied this from my Facebook Notes

So for every diet you have to have some type of plan with goals, right? I would love to get down back to my normal weight when I 1st met Curtis back in Summer of 09 (150 lbs) Ok some say that is too low, but that is normal for my height and age. Some say I am normal now, but the facts and numbers say different. I am over weight. I am not sure on how much I weight and I am a little scared on looking. But I plan on looking. I am thinking I weight at least 180 to 190

  • Main Goal weight 150
  • End of November Goal weight 175
  • End of Dec. Goal weight 1 60
  • By the new year 150

By finding out my true weight this will Change.

The diet I am thinking of doing is a High Protein, low carb diet, by eating Fish/Seafood.

NO: Sweets unless sugar free, no bread unless wheat and only once a day, no pasta, Chicken, Beef.

For being active jog/walk every morning/evening.

 

Plan to Start Nov. 12, 2010

Update almost everyday (:

Cold November bur..

My 2nd post for today! Today for dinner I went to Denny’s because I wanted some breakfast and I wanted to see Curtis! Well They had Pumpkin pie but they were all out!!! So after dinner I went to Ingles and brought some Pumpkin Pie Creamer! There are so many different flavors and since its time for the holidays there are so many more!! I am wanting to go back and get many more!! So a nice big cup of coffee and a homemade chocolate cookies = warm November night, and the coffee made the house smell so good! So of course I took photos!! 

I am getting very excited about this Sunday! Curtis and I are getting photo taken! We are using the photos for Christmas Cards and for some frames. I am wanting to go for a Christmas feel so We are going to be wearing Black and Red. I hate matching and I just hope it wont freak me out to much. But I am wanting to a stylist matching look. Carter is also going to be the photos too, so I am going to look for a red sweater for him, since it will be chilly. Just trying to think were we going to take them at.  Any ideas??  ( here is her logo she makes beautiful photos!)

Also Please join me for The Good Witch Blog Party!! (: Have a good and warm night everyone!!

November (:

Hello!

How was everyones October and Halloween? October was a busy month for me and I didn’t get to updated and post like I wanted to. I am sorry to all my lovely readers. Also my laptop is acting silly so my internet is not wanting to work right on my user name. so I have to create a new user and now I can’t use any of my photos or links. I am going to have to get this fixed. I believe its my internet at&t card. ):

Well my Halloween was fun and busy! The party was a blast just a lot of friends didn’t show ): But there was still a good crowd of friends having fun on a spooky night. It was really cold that night though. Well the house is cleaned from all the spooky halloween decor. and still have some fall things out, but I am excited about Christmas! We are getting a real tree this year. I am wanting to have an Old fashion Christmas this year. Looking up some recipes and decor!  But I won’t start getting everything out till after Thanksgiving. Which I can’t wait for either! What is yalls favorite Thanksgiving dish? 🙂 I post my favorite later with the recipe!

Hmm…. This month I am hoping it won’t be too busy. I have 2 cupcake orders, one party, and a photo shoot. not too busy. I am hoping to start jogging with a friend this month before it gets too cold. Though today its bit cold and rainy. I am going to try and start cooking healthier too. Found some yummy recipes that I am wanting to try. Hmm Well I am going to call it a post here are some lovely photos for yall to enjoy! Thanks for reading

Rainy and Cold

Hey my lovely readers! How is everyone doing on this cold, rainy, fall day? It is starting to feel like fall here in the good old south and I am very happy aboutthat part!!  This past weekend it has rained and stormed and today. It was a sunny cool day yesterday. Which was amazing! Fall is really in the air 🙂

Curtis and I are preparing for our Halloween party! I think we are going for a gothic vampire feel. We are getting really excited about the party!! This coming weekend a friend and I are going to Greenville to look for costumes 🙂 I have an idea of what I am going to do! But I ain’t telling just yet 😉

September is coming to an end and October will begin.. I think out of all the 12 months October is my favorite beside my birthday month.. October is the month with the perfect weather! To some it starts a new year, when everything is changing… Everyone is storing food for the long winter ahead. Digging out the fall/ winter clothes and warm cozy blankets. Joy to my ears! Oh and lets not forget the warm apple cider and some pumpkin bread fresh out the oven.. yummy

At this very moment: it’s raining, cold, somewhat dark, coffee brewing, and Carter is pouting.  And well I think this is the end of my post.

Thank you for stopping by if I think of anything else to write I will be back . I also want to say thank you for all the wonderful comments on the Practical Magic Party Post!! It was such a wonderful blog party and a great way to start off Halloween (: Also thank you to the wonderful ladies who hosted the party!  Many Blessings !!

ps.. Here a wonderful photo of Mr. Kobie wearing his wonderful pink bow! he is going to Ms. Stacy’s Friday to get pampered!! Which he loves going (: This was taking this weekend… Trying to get his hair out of his eyes! Have a great evening!! 🙂

Getting Ready for Fall.

Hey everyone!! How is everyone liking fall so far? Well down here in the south fall is still 90 degree weather, but we have cooler mornings and nights! Which I am getting ready for fall! I made a flower arrangement a few days ago. It’s very pretty. I am wanting to get some fall flowers for the front.. Curtis and I are planning for the Halloween party.. We are going to have Low country boil for the dinner.. We wanted something yummy, but easy to eat and serve! Having some cocktails too… Thinking of doing a drink and a shot…  Coming up with some invites too.. thinking of making them, but also have a FB invite too…

Last night I made a cute spider web, which I got the idea and help from A Fanciful Twist. (click on name) I put the web on my microwave door.. It is a very fun idea.. I wish I had some glitter but I didn’t. Enjoy the photo (:

I am getting ready for the Practical Magic Party!! I will post my post tomorrow at Midnight. So I have to get it finish!! I have an idea of what I am going to do…. Gotta get all ready to post.. I can’t wait to read everyones post!! I am going to watching the movie Saturday too and having little goodie to eat 🙂
