My Month in Numbers -- November 2016

Happy December, friends! With the first weekend of December behind us, I wanted to take the chance to hare my November with you. I love these month in number posts. It provides me with the opportunity to look back on the fun we've had because as we all know, time goes by so fast these days. Here is a look back on November.

Minutes spent watching the life Rory and Lorelei on TV last month. Many people disliked the ending of The Day In The Life. However the more I think about it the more I think I am on board with the ending 100%, as if it really matters, but this article puts why I think and feel the way I do together perfectly. And lastly, while my love for Logan will never die, I'm officially #TeamJess for the purpose of any and all additional episode (may we be blessed with more). 

Online orders placed. Online shopping is where it's at. I love walking the aisles of Target just as much as any other red-blooded SAHM but the ease of shopping online will never cease to amaze me. Especially when buying from Amazon Prime. HELLO 2-day delivery. And speaking of shopping Casa de Cox is officially done with their Christmas shopping. #lifegoals

Number of photos I shared on Instagram. Instagram is my favorite social media tool. I like being able to share our every day life with family and friends near and far. I have to admit, I thought that number would be higher but since I usually take a social media break on the weekends, this is probably about right. Although I love IG, it feels good to disconnect sometimes. If you aren't following us, you should be: Wife Mommy Me on IG.

Ornaments hung on the 3 trees in our home - ours, Connor's and Charlie Brown's. Since we got a new  larger tree this year I had to get a few more ornaments to fill it up. I love that we use only keepsake ornaments on our tree. Each one has a special memory attached to it and I love that about our decked out tree. Now, if I could just get Rudy to stop messing with the shiny ornaments we'd be in business. 

Photos erased from my iPhone. I actually backed many of them up to my computer and then just erased the others completely. This is huge progress for me but I had to because I was running out of space on my phone and this is not the time of year to find yourself not able to take a photo of video. I promise one day I'll get my photo act together and move them all to a hard drive. 

Trips planned for 2017. I am super excited to be heading to Florida for a family vacation in February. We just have to decide on Disney or Legoland. Connor is really pushing for Legoland. In the Spring, I'll be going on a trip with just the Mister on a work trip. And then I have something in the works to head to the east coast to meet Meghan from The Adventure Starts Here. I'm also hoping to get to Texas in the Summer. I miss some of my people down in ATX and if this happens, I can also meet my girl, Beth from Our Pretty Little Girls

Days till the new year and a chance to really make big things happen in 2017. I have some personal goals that I want to achieve which means I may have to cut back on blogging a bit. This does not mean I am quitting the blog game, I just may not blog 5 days a week. I have to do some seriously thinking and planning and hopefully it all comes together well for me. 

Nights Connor slept all night long last month. What is this madness? At 4 years old we shouldn't be dealing with this. Each night he wakes up and calls out for one of us, we go into his room and tuck him back in and back to sleep he goes. I just don't get it BUT I have came to terms with it. I had this moment last week when I realized he won't always asks for me, for James. He won't always want to hold our hand or cuddle so while I'm missing a bit of sleep each night, it's more than worth it. 

Last month went by so dang fast. I can't believe we are this.close to Christmas and the start of a new year. 
How did November treat, you?
