what i'm looking forward to in november

Working on my 2015 Project Life book.  My mom has been into scrapbooking for as long as I can remember.  As much as I've tried to love it like she has, I'm more excited about the end project than the process.  She introduced me to Project Life, and I'm obsessed.  I've been documenting my 2015 travels in a beautiful blush album, and I've decided to document every week in 2016 using Project Life.

Visiting my family in Illinois.  Guess who's driving nearly 13 hours (not including any stops) to see her family for Thanksgiving?!  Yes, that's right... me and Paul.  We both really miss my family so even though the drive is pretty long, it's totally worth it.  We survived it in May when we drove home for my sister's graduation, so we can survive it again (with a whole lot of coffee and a few questions about if we're there yet).

Getting back into a fitness routine thanks to Fitbit.  A couple of months ago I lost my Fitbit Flex and I was absolutely heartbroken.  Not a huge deal, I know, but I loved that thing.  It was seriously the best motivation I've ever had.  I've looked everywhere for it, with no luck.  I tweeted about wanting a new one, and Fitbit's support account suggested I contact their support department.  I did, and they gave me a 25% discount on any Fitbit model in their store.  I was shocked and beyond thankful!  They have amazing customer service, which is one of the many reasons I recommend Fitbit to everyone I know.

The holiday season is upon us!  Yes, I'm one of those "crazies" who puts up the Christmas decorations at 12:01am on November 1st.  Hear me out, though!  I consider November 1st-January 1st to be the holiday season, which includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year.  Listening to Christmas music and putting up trees makes me feel cozy and spirited, which is how I want to feel all season, not just during December.  I totally respect and appreciate Thanksgiving, but I think I can do that even with red and green around the home.

Buying more candles and Christmas gifts.  Like many other women, and apparently 99% of the blog world, I'm obsessed with seasonal candles.  Remember how I like to feel cozy and spirited?  No better way to do that than lighting some candles, besides buying Christmas gifts for your family and friends.  I plan on being done with Christmas shopping before December, and I think I have ideas for about half of the people on my list.  Speaking of lists, I better start my Christmas card list, too!

What are you excited about this November?
