Last Saturday, I packed my bag, hopped in the car, and drove the 4 hours to my hometown for my belated Thanksgiving. I did miss seeing all my family and being there for the big dinner, but I had my mom fix a plate for me. So I was able to enjoy some of my favorites. Including my mom's sweet potato pie and my dad's pecan pie. They're always a hit at the family dinners. I remember, when I was younger, the house would be filled with the smell of those two baking in the oven. They were so popular, that my parents would always get extra orders from friends and family members and people from church and work. So for about two days straight, all you could see at my house was pies, pies, pies.

My hometown is a sleepy town so I don't do much when I go home. Just spend time with family. I got to sit with my nearly 90 year old grandma, "Maw", for a chat. She tells me how her legs bother her and that she can't get around as much as she used to. I'm thinking she really doesn't know how blessed she is. The fact that she can even get around and she's here, at her age, is amazing!! And I'm super thankful for that. She kept admiring the heels I wore to church on Sunday. Asked me to bring her a pair. Told her I'd bring her four ;-)

Wearing my favorite sparkly Nine West flats. Their name is "SOCIALO". Not sure if they're discontinued or outdated or what, but I've not been able to find them anywhere since I bought them from the outlet this past summer.

Spent my last night there putting up Christmas decorations with my niece at my sister's house as she sat on the couch and finalized lessons plans for school the next day. Then we ate some pie and went to sleep.


Let me know what you think! But please be nice. Being negative is just no fun. K?
