Friday MishMash

*I haven't written anything since the election...I'm not really sure what to say & contrary to some other people on various social media sites, I still try to abide by "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all."  Honestly, I still feel pretty much exactly how I felt after the last election, which you can read about here

*Elyse has had a cold for the last two days & it's really just's times like these that the hardcore sleep training momma in me disappears & the soft, sweet, cuddlebug momma wants nothing more than to make her baby girl feel better. 

*Due to Elyse's cold & me snuggling her for her nap yesterday afternoon, I somehow managed to burn an entire batch of homemade applesauce...I honestly didn't even know that was possible, but trust me, it is. 

*I'm in charge of organizing the food for our family Thanksgiving again this year...I assigned myself the homemade rolls.  I finished up the first batch on Wednesday & popped them in the freezer.  YUM...I love homemade bread!

*My Grandma Smart (my dad's mom) had to have unexpected surgery this week and the recovery is going slower than normal...say a quick prayer for you if you would.  She gets to come home today, but is still quite uncomfortable.  I think as soon as Elyse is feeling better we'll go visit. 

*I won a giveaway at one of my favorite local boutiques...and yesterday I went to their store to claim my prizes!  I'll definitely post more once they come in, but they had to order in my size. 

*Elyse is 4 days shy of being 11 months old...YIKES!!  I better get to party planning! 

*I am doing something crazy tonight & am participating in the "Run to the Lights" with Hubby and some of our friends from church. It's a 5k race held every year at Silver Dollar City in Branson and the race doesn't even begin until 10:10pm...yeah, I'm normally in bed at that time. Not to mention that the "run" to the lights will most likely be more of a walk, or a slow jog...considering I've never actually RUN a full 5k in my life. Yeah, could be a very interesting night.

*Tomorrow night is girls' night out with sushi followed up by drinks & dessert back at one of my girlfriends''s gonna be a blast! 

*Happy Weekend's going to be gorgeous here!

Hope Elyse gets better soon! :-( I agree w/u on the me some people needs to remember they are a Christian first..some comments I'd read on facebook..lets just say if I said those things I'd feel like I needed to repent!!
