December 2014 Currently

I can't believe it is December!  Though I am not a fan of the cold weather, I do enjoy this time of year.  It makes me feel young again!

I am linking up with Farley from Oh Boy Fourth Grade for the December Currently.

Being from Louisiana, I love watching NCIS: New Orleans.  I also had a secret crush on Scott Bakula in college when I watched and video taped (yes, with a VCR) episodes of Quantum Leap to watch.  Even though tonight is a rerun, I am watching it!

We had to put our dog down back in August.  It was sad, but she just couldn't go on much longer.  My daughter keeps asking about her, so my husband decided that it was time to get a new dog.  WHAT?!  I was going to wait until summer when I had time to work with the dog and be home with it.  Now on Saturday, the dog is coming from the local mutt rescue to live with us as my daughter's early Christmas present!  Yes, there will be pictures!

I went shopping on Thanksgiving night and had a blast with a friend of mine.  I got some awesome deals on some fun clothes.  Now I am going to wrap them from Santa to me!

I keep reading Cyber Monday extended emails and wanting to buy more.  I just need to hit delete!

After Thanksgiving, I made some gumbo for our Sunday School lunch with my leftover turkey.  Everyone loved it, so they asked for the recipe.  I want to share it with all of my readers as well.  So, enjoy it!  Click {here} or on the image below to grab your copy from my Dropbox!
I am ready for the Christmas season and can't wait to see the looks on my children's faces this Christmas!


  1. Good luck with the new dog! I can't imagine dealing with the loss of my two kitties. I like to pretend they will just live forever.

  2. My reaction to getting a new dog at this time of year would have been the same of yours. Good luck and have fun!

  3. Congrats on your new puppy! How exciting! At least Christmas Break is right around the corner...

  4. Steven would be so jealous of that gumbo! I'm not a good little South Mississippi girl because I won't touch it. So glad I'm not the only one who buys my own Christmas gifts! Of course, I also just bought a few sweaters for me during the sales that I have no intentions of wrapping. Hope the new dog works out!

  5. I went shopping with my Mom on Thanksgiving. Her husband went into work and we went to Kohl's and then our local mall. I bought some great gifts for family ( and me) with the deals! We had a lot of fun! I also love the new NCIS show. I think Scott is a dream boat! I'd love a remake of Quantum Leap... LOL
