The Other Side

Well I survived the stomach bug of 2011 also known as hell.

There were a few moments where I actually thought I wasn't going to survive and it was time for me to go over my last will and testaments. Or is it testament? Not to be confused with Testamints the christian mint complete with a scripture with each mint.

Then I remembered I don't have anything worth anything so there is no need for a will or testament. However after my bout with the stomach virus I could have used a Testamint.

Since it is November, the month of thankfulness, I need to take this moment to say that I am thankful for my husband and his willingness to live out the fruits of the spirit in his life. God bless him for practicing, peace, love, faithfulness, self control, joy, and peace when I was convinced I would not survive the stomach bug.

It was rough but luckily I got better just in time to go see Breaking Dawn with two dear friends.

We are familiar with the quality of the films in the Twilight franchise so we knew what to expect going into the movie.

It met every expectation we had and we left discussing scenes that were not supposed to be funny that were hilarious and our thoughts on corny and sometimes uncomfortable moments in the movie.

And we all agreed we would be in line together for the next movie on opening night (well not at midnight but the next night, so I guess 2nd opening night). It's just how we roll.

We are all busy gals and live in different towns so we will gladly take a girl's night sitting on a theater floor for several hours in line just to see a vampire, werewolf and one annoying girl.

I wasn't kidding about sitting on the theater floor:

Also I'm glad I was better before the weekend because we spent Saturday eating Thanksgiving food with my family and I am NOT HAPPY if I don't get to eat Thanksgiving food.

Cheesy potatos? Please and thank you.

Eli's CeCe (my mom) got Eli and his cousin matching outfits for the day. I have to say they looked awfully cute:

It was such a fun day with family. The weather was beautiful and we just hung outside the whole time (when we weren't eating).

We even had a sister photoshoot:

I'm the oldest sister I never stop bossing and "fixing". I'm not sure what I was doing here but it was probably bossing or "fixing" something:
What a fun weekend!

So glad I beat the stomach bug 2011 just in time to enjoy it all. And a special big thanks to these boys for taking extra good care of me!

Oh my goodness, Eli and his cousin in those matching outfits - HOLY ADORABLENESS!

So jealous that you got to see Breaking Dawn... I still haven't seen it, I've been working since it came out. Damn work!

Oh my goodness...every time I see those Testamints in Lifeway Bookstore I laugh. I think handing someone a mint to share Jesus is rude.

I'm so glad you are feeling better!!

And can we just talk about your baby boy for a sec? ADORABLE!!! Love him.

Happy Thanksgiving, girl!!
