After a full month of friends and family (we have been gone every weekend), I'm so thankful we live close to the ones we love. Yes, it made for quite the hectic month, but it was well worth it all.
Weekend by weekend, here's what we did.
We went home to Pennsylvania to celebrate Donna's (JD's mom) 60th Birthday. It was really a joint party for Donna, Scott, and JD but turning 60 seems to outweigh turning 28 and 35.
We drove back to Pennsylvania, but this time to West Chester for a college
reunion. Love that gang. Walking on campus made us feel old once we
realized we graduated almost 6 years ago. As much as I miss my
roommates, I miss that city too. We celebrated Vicki's new baby bump and got an update on the Kang's new food truck business.
We spent the weekend in National Harbor, Maryland celebrating JD's birthday. Everything was a surprise and revealed through a series of 3 poems; the final clue resulting in two surprise visitors, his dad and Audrey. I didn't take a lot of photos but here are a few.
Thanksgiving!! We got to soak in quality time with both families and eat a lot of great food.
Now... there's 4 weeks until Christmas. There's shopping to be done, papers to grade, projects to complete, and Christmas Cheer to be had! Hoping for December to go a bit slower.

Remember back in the summer when I was on a mission to transform our office (read that post here)? Well I got about 60% done and then school started. We are hosting our first house guest this week so it got us back in business. JD went through a lot of boxes and reorganized the closet to accommodate a lot more storage. We are almost done. Just need to a few things. So here is a sneak peak.
