As we’ve officially passed Thanksgiving, which my husband calls the “Gateway to Christmas,” I’m really excited for the holidays and planning for our annual holiday dinner on Christmas day.
Yesterday was a great day. I slept in a bit and then volunteered at Animal Rescute New Orleans, a local no-kill animal shelter. I used to volunteer there once a week… and then I came home with a dog and Jason put me on a mandatory hiatus from spending time there.
It was great to be back and there are some SUPER sweet dogs for adoption. If you’re thinking of getting a family pet for the holidays, PLEASE consider adoption before purchasing a dog from a breeder. There are so many amazing pets for adoption!
Here are five photos from a great week — and, for the first time, no dog pictures!
Last weekend, Pelicans guard Eric Gordon hosted an EG10 Gives event for 25 families in New Orleans East. In addition to spending time with Eric and receiving tickets to the next home game, Eric bought Thanksgiving meals with all of the fixings for them. This woman was especially appreciative and gave Eric some sugar!
On Monday, Anthony Davis hosted dinner for 175 disciples at New Orleans Mission. Another great AD’s Flight Academy event hosted by Anthony and planned by my co-worker, Julie.
One of the many adorable dogs at ARNO yesterday. This is Eldon and he is sweet, clean and snuggly.
Visited our storage unit to bring all of our holiday decorations home. I swear the decorations grow by a storage bin every year…
A few months ago, I was fortunate to win an Instagram contest from A Pinch of Lovely that included a $250 gift card to Lyon and Post. These Chiara Ferragni wink flats were one of my purchases. Such a great company — I can’t wait to share the rest with you in an upcoming post.
Have a great weekend!
