the best week of the year...highlights.

I turned 24, Thanksgiving was a party, Black Friday=Shopping, Auburn won. I even tried my hand at some recipes by the Pioneer Woman. This and this is delicious! Oh, and Christmas music is now playing on repeat. It's the most wonderful time of the year...officially!

The best week of the year...in my book.

It's the most wonderful week of the year!

To me at least...

Here's why:

Today: Dad's Birthday...Cheers to 56 wonderful years of Ronald! Here, here!

Tomorrow: My birthday...24 years ago my dad was at a Celtics game in Boston when he got a call from my mom that was about a month early..let's just say he made it back just in time :)

The rest of the week: Food, family & football (war eagle!)

oh, and get out the Mariah Carey Christmas album and maybe even N*Sync...because Christmas Music is "allowed" (I've already been listening to the dismay of many around me...).

So let's get this party started and join me in being thankful the Pilgrims, their fellow Indians and Abe Lincoln have given us a good reason to stuff ourselves!

Peace. Love. & Cornucopias.

must have music for the soul.

Live at The Banks House from United Pursuit on Vimeo.

Thanks to Chase and his good (and talented) friend Paul Hassel (check out his photog skills here) I've been introduced to the music of Will Regan & United Pursuit. They are friends of Paul and Chase and are from Knoxville, TN. This is dang good, spirit-filled Jesus music. Get their new album on itunes. NOW!

"there's no place that i'd rather be today; than here in Your love."
