Do It Yourself

Today I am thankful for DIY (Do It Yourself) Crafts.
This is a little bit of a new thing for me, but after trying my luck in both baking and cooking, I expanded out to doing more crafts (people keep calling me Suzy Homemaker).
So I have my entire layout figured out for Thanksgiving
(super excited, by the way)
and I am excited to stay home and enjoy some crafts that keep me busy and, more importantly, keep me from spending money.
So I am thankful for that, and maybe Pinterest for giving me the ideas.
I'm really excited to show off my projects, which I will do after I display my final project:)

In other events, today ended up being a rainy day.
I made crock pot burritos....Or I guess I should say filling for the burritos.
Anyway, I didn't make it to the gym so I slept in a bit and did chores.
My friend Ashley came over and discussed Thanksgiving plans,
then after she left I was tallying up all the flour, sugar, and butter I would need for the big day.
(19 cups of flour, if you're interested.
Then Jesse got back from work, tomorrow starts his official first day doing something new.
He will now be gone a lot longer than he has been since...we were in Washington.
Tomorrow's plans include the gym and some pumpkin scones.
Have a good Friday!
