Happy Thanksgiving Y'all

This is a very different Thanksgiving for us. We are 600 miles from our families and are unable to be celebrating today with them. However, I am very excited about this Thanksgiving for this is our 1st Thanksgiving as a married couple. I am excited as we start new traditions to be celebrated annually by us and one day our children. Above all this I am excited for today, because it is a day that is specifically set aside to give thanks. Thanks for salvation, my husband, our marriage, our families, sweet friends, a roof over our head, life, his job, provisions, our health, food on the table, and so much more. We have so much to be thankful for and all praise is unto God alone. Our menu is pretty exciting this year, it is my 1st Thanksgiving to cook. I made my everything from scratch. Last night Mr. Wonderful and I made my Grandma's dressing, homemade cornbread, squash casserole, candied pecans and pumpkin cheesecake. This morning the dressing and casserole are in the oven and I am making deviled eggs to take to lunch. We are having lunch with sweet friends then coming home to make herb and bacon roasted turkey breast, Nana's sweet potato crunch, Grandma's macaroni and cheese and by special request from one of our guests fried apple turnovers. Overall the makings for a wonderful Thanksgiving day. I hope y'all have a GREAT Thanksgiving. Remember to give thanks for all the blessings you have received this year and above all praise Him!
Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!

So I just had a whirlwind week away as you can tell from my previous post it was packed. I had a great time and saw lots of wonderful friends and family. New Moon was FABULOUS!! I even got a phone call yesterday for a job interview. Today I got back in town and had a job interview at 3 at Durham Regional Hospital part of Duke Health System in their Emergency department. I actually applied for a different job but this is a pilot program they are doing in the ER for new nurses. If I get the job it would start December 7th instead if February. The interview lasted 2 hours, I think it went well, but we will see. I am really excited to get things in order for Thanksgiving we are having lunch with sweet friends. I guess that is about all that is new with us. I have tons of pictures to edit from this past week and the house needs to be picked up, poor Mr. Wonderful has been swamped with work and a paper. If you are traveling this week have a safe trip and Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!

Today We Say Thank You

Today we say Thank You. Thank you for those who serve and have served in our armed forces. For those who gave and give their lives for our freedom! We honor those in the United States Armed Forces. The men and women who put their lives on the line for this great country we live in.


Because of You, Unknown Soldier

By Courtney Tanabe

Because of you, I am here

Because of you, I am able to live freely

Yet I do not know you

And I have not done anything for you

But there you stand, ready to fight

And there you are prepared to die

For me

You've fought before

And you'll fight again

For someone you don't know

So thank you Unknown Soldier

Fighting for me

I'm here because of you

And I owe my future to you

"All I ask of You"

"Say you love me every waking moment,
turn my head with talk of summertime,
Say you need me with you,
now and always,
promise me that all you say is true -
that's all I ask of you "
I love musical theater. Throughout my life I have been involved in theater, even as a kid I was in a theater group. The stage feels like home to me and I love to perform. It has been 3 years since I have been on a stage on almost 5 since I have been in a musical theater production. Even when not preforming I love to watch musical theater. I love going to off broadway shows and hope to one day see a show on Broadway. My first musical I remember seeing was the Phantom of the Opera. It is a classic! I was even able to see it in Madrid, Spain in Spanish. I was thrilled to discover there is sequel hitting Broadway next November, called Love Never Dies. What brought out my love musical theater on this beautiful day? The excitement of living in an area that gets numerous off-broadway productions which includes two of my favorites, Phantom of the Opera (December) and Wicked (April)! I am so excited and now I will be accepting donations for tickets ;) Below watch this wonderful excerpt from Phantom!
