monday, november 22

the timing of this post is totally right and completely wrong all at the same time.  on one hand it's perfect considering the blast of unseasonably warm weather that has been hanging around st. louis the past few days (as i type this a thunderstorm is brewing outside, complete with yummy dark clouds).  and on the other, it's soooo wrong as i am sitting in a house filled with christmas decorations.  yes, i know it's not even thanksgiving yet but the decorations were going up this weekend or they weren't going up at all.  

i was browsing back in iphoto when i came across pictures from a family outing to the zoo which happened to be the last day jastin was home before he started his job.  the pictures show how much fun we had and i just had to post them…er…5 months after the fact.

Summer 2010-4

i puffy heart the st. louis zoo and seeing these pictures makes me sad that it will be awhile before we can go again (comfortably).  but the best news is that since we live here now (insert really big grin here) i can go whenever i want including ever day if i so please.  i know your jealous but you are more than welcome to tag along anytime you want.  for realz.

but until then, it's back to planning.  we are hosting our very first thanksgiving this thursday and i have SO much to do.  but, this little break to reminisce on fun times and warm days was fun now wasn't it?

much love,

mama a

    We didn’t make it to the zoo either this year….. It is on my to do list for next year for sure!

    Good Luck with Thanksgiving – I am hosting my first one too! Thankfully my BIL is making the turkey (beer butt) and my mom is cooking the roast!! I just have to provide the meat and dinner rolls — oh and clean the house! (before and after!) :-)
