Help! I seem to have lost November

I can't believe it is already December 5th.  My last post was November 1st.  Oopsie.  My lack of posts wasn't due to lack of content.  November was a pretty packed month.  I just couldn't seem to ever make it to the computer.  When I actually had an opportunity to sit down and write, reality tv or sleeping would always win out.  Yep, that's the sad truth.

Here's what we were up to last month:

Harper got sick for the first time.  It was awful.  She had a really high fever and an awful cough.  We had to do breathing treatments and steroids to finally knock it out. 

I helped host my sister's baby shower for my sweet little nephew who will make his debut next month.  I will probably do a separate post on this eventually because everything turned out so cute.

My girlfriends and I took a little weekend trip (planned and booked by our sweet husbands...major points!) to Fredericksburg.  We had a blast indulging in all the food, wine, and shopping that adorable little town has to offer.  There will most definitely be a repeat trip in the future.

We went to Izzy's Fall Feast at school.  Her class wore the sweetest little Pilgrim hats.  Well, everyone except for my daughter, who flat out refused to have any part of it.  I'm willing to bet that if were pink or sparkly, she would have been all over it. 

We attended two birthday parties, both for Izzy and Harper's cousins.  The girls had a great time at both, and we of course enjoyed the cake. ;-)

Griff went on 2 out-of-town trips, leaving me as a single mother for a total of 7 days.  That's enough to make a girl go cray. 

Griff proceeded to grow out his moustache for Movember.  It was out of control gross. 

I ate entirely too much on Thanksgiving, but we had a great time with both of our families. 

My mom, sister, aunt, and I ventured out for Black Friday sales.  It was very low-key this year.  We didn't wait in any lines, got everything we went for, and marked lots of gifts off our list.  And any day that ends with a Jack in the Box sausage, egg, and cheese croissant at 2 a.m. is a good time in my book. 

Hopefully, this won't be my lone post for the month.  I hear two little girls notsopatiently calling for me from their beds who say otherwise though. :-/
