Short weeks are the best weeks, don't you agree? I was in the office for 2.5 days wrapping things up before Thanksgiving, which was nice. I got to take my sister to The Coop in Winter Park for an amazing southern style feast, complete with fried chicken, fried okra, mac & cheese, cornbread, banana pudding and pecan pie. It doesn't get much more heavenly than that!
On Thursday, we had another HUGE feast for Thanksgiving, complete with our late dinner guest, Chip the elf. Let's backtrack for a second and talk about T. Swift's #BlankSpace performance on the AMA's. I am a lover of all things Swift already, but I am A.D.D.I.C.T.E.D. to 1989. If you think you're too cool for T. Swift you're really only hurting yourself.
I'm constantly reminded that life shouldn't go my way, but God's way. Every time a door closes, I should be thanking Him because I don't want anything less than His best. I like to be in control, and have a plan, but none of that truly matters in the end because my plan will end up like burnt garbage on the side of the road compared to what God has planned for me. So, if you're like me, don't get discouraged when the door proverbially slams in your face.
OMG! If you live in the Orlando area, you have heard about Barnie's Coffee Kitchen, and if you're lucky enough to know Barnie's, you're lucky enough to know about the heavenly nectar that is Santa's White Christmas. What you may not know is Publix is carrying limited edition Santa's White Christmas flavored ice cream and it's even better than you can imagine. I highly recommend throwing some in the blender with milk and kahlua for a frozen treat like my sister and I did after Thanksgiving. Just be sure to invite me over when you do.
I'm currently trying out a new foundation (new to me) by Lancome. So, far it's a lighter formula than I'm used to, but I'm really liking it nonetheless. Figuring out my color was a bit of a confused mess, but I used the trusty Findation website, which tells you your perfect foundation color in pretty much any brand based on the foundation colors you were in other makeup brands. Pretty genius!
Hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving week, and enjoyed time with friends and family!
