Currently and Intentions for November

 Hey loves. Hello November. New month means new health right?  We didn't get to do much Fall or Halloween fun this year. It seemed like every time we planned something on of my kids ended up sick. Fingers crossed we are healthy for a while. 

The currently link up is back but now it is with Jennifer over at Overflowing with Thankfulness. I am also sharing my intentions for the month and looking back at last months. First up....

~ Borrowing ~
Babysitters. Does that count. Brian and I are borrowing our parents to babysit Anna for numerous things lately. From Austin's soccer game to school Halloween parties and IEP meetings, and soon enough some Christmas shopping. 

~ Buying ~
Christmas presents. We are almost done with the kids. That is until I add more to the list which always happens when I shop early. We are also buying items to host our first Thanksgiving. We don't have enough plates for 20 people so we are buying those and I want a nice table cloth. 

~ Planning ~
Thanksgiving. This is our first year hosting. I am planning all the details from our menu to table settings.

~ Prepping ~
The basement for more renovations. We are getting a bigger sump pump put in our basement (which means a lot of concrete dust) and more walls are coming down. 

~ Reading ~

  1. Hooray for hosting Thanksgiving! I hope you enjoy it...and that day full of blessings for everyone!

  2. I was just saying to my husband that I feel like someone has been sick in this house since the start of September... and I have one that started feeling crappy again yesterday so I don't think we're done with sickness yet! I hope your first Thanksgiving goes great and that everyone stays healthy for you for a good long time.

    1. I am over everyone being sick and it just keeps going from one to the next back to the first.

  3. Dealing with a lot of sickness is NOT fun. I hope you have a good long healthy stretch now. Also, I haven't done any holiday shopping except for extended family. I don't even know what to get the kids this year. Yikes.
