7 days and Counting!

Well I am now fully in the Christmas whirlwind! Husband and I had a fabulous weekend in New Orleans celebrating this precious holiday with his family. It was full of family and fun and fellowship and fun presents! It was a much needed weekend with his fam and we had a ball. Saturday night we ate at this fancy fancy resteraunt in downtown New Orleans (French Quarter) called Antoine's. This restaurant has existed since before the Civil War. For reals! So the menu was in French, and my sweet husband can't pronounce things like that. So when the waiter came to take Grant's order, rather than saying "I'll have the steak", or pointing at what item he wanted, my precious man just said "I'll have the $37.50". Classy.

So I am back in Baton Rouge, frantically getting through this week. I am working my little tail off, getting my house back in one piece, wrapping presents and packing up for our trip to Texas. I have sooo many errands to run this week and I feel like that countdown has begun!

I am thankful today for my employers. This is a hectic, busy, and financially pressing time for everyone, but today I was given a generous Christmas bonus. I was not expecting it and I swear I almost started crying. It was a wonderful little gift and I just truly believe that the Lord's blessings come in all forms.

Take a deep breath ladies, Christmas is one week away!
