Five on Friday

Happy Friday! 

I am so thrilled that I get NINE whole days off for Thanksgiving and I don't have to use one vacation day. Coming from the corporate world, I would have to use three or four days if I wanted all next week off. Here? Nope. Love it. 

We also are going to lunch as a team and get to leave after that, which is a double bonus. Three more hours and counting! :)

I plan to wrap more Christmas presents, take down fall and decorate for Christmas and deep clean my house in these glorious nine days. 

Yesterday at my doctor's appointment, I was scheduled to get an ultrasound. I've moved to every two week appointments now that I'm in the third trimester and at every other two week appointment, I get an ultrasound. {Seriously love seeing my sweet baby boy so often these days!} 

Anyway, my doctor decided to go to the hospital to do rounds during my scheduled appointment time, so I was just left waiting in the sonogram room. {Side note: I understand there are other patients, but when I make an appointment for 1:30 p.m., I'd love to be seen before 2:30 p.m. That is all.} So, I just decided to make myself comfortable on that table by lifting up the automatic leg rest, helping myself to the trashy Star magazine and even took a little 10-minute nap. 

Oliver has always loved to be right by me at all times, but lately he's been really obsessed with being thisclose to me. The other night, I was writing thank-you notes for shower gifts and this little booger got right in my face, snuggled down to lay on his back and proceeded to play with my hair. I then started rubbing my face in his neck/chest and he was purring away. Yes, I realize this makes me sound like the insane of all insane crazy cat ladies, but I just love this little nugget. And, I'm trying to give him as much love as possible now before his world is totally rocked in January! 

Today is an historic day in Dallas; it marks 50 years since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated here in 1963. There is a large remembrance ceremony taking place downtown today and media from all over is here to mark it. 

When I worked downtown, I would drive over the "X" that marked the spot where Lee Harvey Oswald shot the president every day to go home and would get chills every time. 

I keep hearing all the newscasters {especially those alive during the assassination} say it was "the day innocence was lost." I totally agree. I think how now our president {or the queen, pope, etc.} typically would never ride through a downtown street with skyscrapers and tall buildings on either side in an open motorcade. 

I have always been very obsessed with the Kennedy family and that "Camelot" era {call me a history nerd, it's okay} but lately have been taking in every documentary, newscast, made-for-TV movie and article about them. I just truly can't imagine - regardless of your thoughts of the president or your political affiliation - hearing that the President of the United States was murdered. What a scary, sad time that must have been with so much uncertainty. 

Brandon has been on a week-long business trip this week and finally gets home today! I can't wait to pick him up from the airport. He's been where it's very cold, and I told him I think he brought the weather with him because it's freezing in Dallas and we even have the chance of sleet on Sunday. 

I'll definitely try to blog while I'm off next week, but if I don't, I hope y'all have a very happy Thanksgiving and eat too much food with those you love!
