I went shopping with a friend the other day and on the way home this commenced. 
I've already reserved a wedding reception venue and Kennedy and I are shopping for dresses. 

I also went to Lowe's to get paint!!!! First we need to paint the ceiling which isn't that exciting, but I also picked up the living room color while I was there. And Brynlie picked up some moves. 
Cory is super handy and a genius when it comes to DIY, but he is really bad at picking one project and following through to the end. He gets really distracted and moves on to something else before he's 100% done with the first thing. It drives me crazy. Take the drywall for example. It's hit and miss as far as finished areas go. He told me I could paint the ceiling in the living room and kitchen and then I noticed places where he hasn't finished the patch work. So... I got some of the ceiling done and started painting a wall because I couldn't resist seeing the color. 
It's a light gray, which is hard to see in this picture. I love it!!! We are finally getting to the fun stuff! I also got some lighting fixtures, our door knobs and hinges, and the kitchen faucet last night on Black Friday sales. I saved almost $200! 

Our Thanksgiving was low key but enjoyable. I started the morning with the 10k. It wasn't exactly warm. 
There's nothing exciting to report from the run. I just went at a leisurely pace and just enjoyed running. It was icy in spots so I had to be really careful. When I first signed up I thought about doing some speed training and seeing if I could get close to my 10k PR but that idea quickly disappeared. But I had fun! It's nice to know that 6.2 miles is still an easy distance for me. I don't want to lose my endurance more than that if I can help it. 

We had breakfast afterward at Cory's parents house. Then we played the Speak Out game. If you haven't heard of it, YouTube it. We were laughing pretty darn hard. 

Later we went to see Moana. It was a really cute movie with great music. It wasn't what I expected but it was good. I especially loved the short film at the beginning. Definitely one of the best ones I've seen. I legit look either 8 months pregnant or 250lbs in this picture. Neither is the case. Just to clarify. 
After the movie we headed back to the Hunter's and had dinner. The girls were pretty done by this point so we left earlier than planned so I could put them to bed. They were so cranky!! I spent the rest of the night preparing the lesson for Sunday and shopping online Black Friday deals. 

My family is doing our Thanksgiving dinner today. I'm pretty pumped. Best meal of the year. 

I hope you had a great holiday! See you, soon!
