Good evening peeps! I hope you all had a great day!

My day stared out right with a family brunch at Smitty's.

I had coffee and OJ:



And then the eggs, bacon, and sausage from this plate ... and only 1/2 a pancake because they were hard and bland:



I spent the afternoon trying to work on my thesis - but it was painful, and I just wasn't feeling it. I figured out how to write my stats into my results section, and then wrote a couple of pages. I will do more tomorrow and Tuesday, and then hopefully I will be able to send a draft off.

I have no problem writing once I get into it, but I just was NOT into it today.

For dinner we went to hubby's parents home and had jambalaya:



I had a glass of crystal light with it:



My FIL wanted me to take a picture of the lovely cake he bought :-)



I am not a big cake person, but I tried 1 bite. I really liked the thick layer of chocolate ganache on top. Chocolate and me love each other.

We brought a special friend with us for dinner today! Our little nephew! He will be 3 in "Feburosy" as he told us tonight:



He had fun looking at flyers with uncle Chris and showing us what he wants for Christmas:



Every day that I spend with this little guy is the best day ever!!!!!!

Here is my to-do list for the week:

Monday - Work, write thesis
Tuesday - Work, finish 1st draft of thesis
Wednesday - Work, bake cookies, Christmas shop
Thursday - Work, shop with my dad for house stuff
Friday - Set up Christmas tree!!!
Saturday - 1st Christmas party of the season!!!!

So if I can make it past Tuesday, I am going to be one happy girl!

Do you make to-do lists?
I make all kinds of lists. I am a total list writing nerd.

I try to do to-do lists and I usually do it, maybe not at the original time (procrastination is my middle name! haha)

Brunches are always so much fun. Your nephew is adorable! I like making to-do lists and crossing off the stuff as it gets done. It's so satisfying. lol

I make lists, but I don't do so well at following them! I love spending time with nephews- they are the sweetest!

Good luck with all your tasks these weeks!

Even when I make lists I forget about them. I can even take a shopping list with me when grocery shopping and miss something off the list.
