1. CROCKSGIVING! (<<click for link) We host a neighborhood bible study every week and I wanted to do something special for Thanksgiving without actually spending the entire day cooking. I googled crockpot and thanksgiving, and wouldn't you know it, Buzzfeed had already figured it out for me! I followed the recipe instructions exactly, however, I replaced the flour, bread, and butter with GF/DF alternatives. I also used sweet potato chips instead of fried onions. And finally, made fresh cranberry sauce which was surprisingly simple and wonderful addition. This is a great alternative for spending hours in the kitchen. It was a hit!
3. FBF: A sweet memory from our week at my Mom's house in GA. They love her so much!
4. A HEALTHY HABIT: I spend most of my days refilling sippy-cups and emptying half-full, forgotten coffee mugs. So when I can, I pull out a stemmed glass and poor myself a sparkling water with a fresh lemon garnish. So simple, but it makes me feel more adult and pulled together amid the most chaotic of days.
5. SHARE GRATITUDE: As Thanksgiving approaches, I encourage you to write one hand-written note before Thursday - maybe even to your host? This is one we received from a friend and it was such a sweet sentiment.
6: SO LONG, SUPER MOON: You were beautiful yes, but you had me and Roswelle feeling all sorts of emotions!!
