our lives lately!

Is anyone else as excited for the 3 day work week as I am?  c-a-n-n-o-t w-a-i-t.
I thought I would share what we’ve been up to recently since it has been awhile!

John and I took a mini road trip to Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon to get pictures taken for our Christmas card… The pictures involved a little off roading which John really enjoyed (gotta make it fun for the guys too!).  Here's a sneak peek!





A couple from our First5 Sunday school class invited us to the Phoenix Symphony.  It was fun getting dressed up and going out for the night… they are such a sweet couple, and it was great to spend some time with them!


Scout and John have been busy hunting.  They have been wild quail hunting and going to a hunt club for pheasant and chukar… they are having a blast together, and it is such fun to see Scout do what she was bred to do (not to mention she sleeps for a good two days after she hunts, which I really appreciate!).




The best part of the weekend was our mini Thanksgiving dinner! And the second best part? The leftovers!  Instead of turkey, we ate pheasant (killed the same day by John and Scout... talk about fresh...)!
 

And I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve been having my fair share of holiday Starbucks drinks! The peppermint mocha will forever have my heart!
 

So in true red cup spirit, I'm teaming up with Heather to give away a $20 Starbucks gift card... who doesn't want some holiday drinks in their life?! Ends Wednesday!
