Blogging Blues

I don't know what my problem is. Just over a year ago I decided to start a blog. I was so excited and dedicated to journaling about our lives online. And recently I have hit a funk. Sometimes I even forget I have a blog {sad} . I still diligently read my friend's blogs, and I still stalk blogs of people that I am curious about {could you be one of them??:)}, but somehow I completely neglect my own. What is wrong with me?

So what is going on with the Vega's?? Well, our house is still not done. This saddens me and makes me chuckle, maybe even belly laugh, all at the same time. Why you ask? Money, the economy, contractors, banks, money, money and more money:) We did start going to our new ward in Gilbert even though we don't live in our house yet and have met a lot of people that have built custom homes and been in very similar situations. This makes me feel better, like we aren't alone in our plight. I am trying to be patient. I wonder how much longer we will have to deal with this trial? Someday we will look back and realize that it was a blip in time. But right now it feels slightly longer then a blip, maybe a bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepppppppppp:)

Next week we will be spending Thanksgiving in Parker, AZ. We have a house on the canal so we figured we should take advantage of it and get out of town!! Our dear friends, Amber and Jeff Watson will be driving down from Utah with their two kids. We are ecstatic that they are joining us for the 2nd year in a row. Amber's little brother Austin is in town and will be with us as well. Of course my brother Chris and sister Sara will be part of the Thanksgiving crew as well as Joe's Dad, his nephew Emilio, cousin Amy and nephew lil' Gabriel This is my 4th Thanksgiving where I have prepared the meal. It is a lot of work but I love it!!!! I will be picking up my 23 lb. free range, organic turkey from Sprouts on Tuesday night and Wednesday the baking will commence. This year I have decided to introduce some new dishes into my repertoire. My typical menu includes, Turkey, Velvet Mashed Potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce, Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots, Pomegranate Salad, Green Bean Casserole, Baked Corn, and Stuffing. Hungry yet? This year I will add a brie brioche, baked artichoke/spinach dish, as well as an amped up green bean casserole, oh and some homemade mac and cheese. YUM, YUM, and Double YUM!!!! And let's not forget dessert... there will be pecan pie, chocolate pie, pumpkin cobbler, and pumpkin cheesecake....Just call me Martha.
