This was my first Thanksgiving as a married lady! We went across the street and joined friends for a feast prepared by Ali's mom Rebecca and pies made by her aunt.  They had a fire going in the chiminea to welcome all the guests.  I've been doing something different for Thanksgiving since my Dad died and this was a fun experience.  I was glad my Mom was there too this year.   

We did a tiny bit of shopping on Black Friday in the afternoon.  I needed to get yarn to start on a baby blanket for my cousin and my Mom wanted a magazine she couldn't find and some pretty paper.  Today was more shopping and spending time with my husband.
Hope you all had a great holiday with your family by blood or family by choice!

November LoveDrop- In Colorado!

I personally give to LoveDrop through PayPal.  I love what they're doing and that we can actually see where everything's going! <3

Love Drop is at it again! They just came back from the Indianapolis area where they dropped $2,500 worth of baby gifts on newborn triplets, and THIS month they're trying to round up the love for another mother who needs our help -- this time fighting against cancer for the 3rd time in 10 years.
Any of us in the same situation would probably use any extra money toward medical bills, so that's why this month we want to instead focus on giving Marci and family the gift of quality time together. Let's send them somewhere amazing and help them form memories that will last forever! We're looking for creative ideas this month... financial gifts too, but also anything that will help them escape together for a while.
Want to help Marci and her family from Fort Collins, Colorado out? Here are 3 ways:
  1. Give $1.00 - This money will help us give her some great quality time!
  2. Give a gift card - Gift cards are extremely helpful, especially to places that are national.
  3. Donate TRAVEL stuff - Airline miles, timeshare options, destination packages, etc. - whatever you have access to!
Thanks guys! You can reach the Love Drop team here anytime with questions: team (at) love drop (dot) us., or by checking them out at Thanks everyone! We'll let you know how it goes!
