Aaand we're back!

Wow...sorry for such a long absence. I know you've been waiting with bated breath for my return. The wait is over!

A lot has happened since my last post. My internship ended. We went to Monroeville for Thanksgiving and my best friend's wedding. I went to Auburn to celebrate my grandfather's 90th birthday, and Cole's head almost exploded as Alabama won the SEC Championship.

Since finishing my internship, I have been trying to become a better homemaker. If you know me at all, you know that cleaning and organizing aren't exactly my best things. My new role is helping me figure out what systems work for me and also how to motivate myself to do the things that I really don't enjoy doing at all. Last week was my first full week at home, and I think it went pretty well. I cooked dinner every night and tried a couple of new recipes. I cleaned a lot, especially the parts of the house that had been neglected for a way too long.

Today I finally finished unpacking all of our china. I have washed almost all of it and put it in our new buffet in our dining room. It was very exciting!

Now that I'm home full-time, I'm going to try to get our house and our lives more organized. I've been working on a cleaning schedule to keep me on track, and I've been scouring my cookbooks for new recipes to try. I think I'm going to make steak fajitas and oatmeal cream pies tomorrow. Yum! I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.

Oh, and Christmas tree pictures are coming soon.
