Favorite Finds: Non-Stop 48 Hours

The past 48 hours have been non-stop between caring for a hurting husband, prepping for Thanksgiving, and cleaning-up after a pooping and puking puppy.  I guess you could say I’m just dutifully fulfilling my roles of wife and mother.

Both Ryan and I would like to thank everyone for the positive thoughts and well wishes y’all left for us on Wednesday.  I am continuously amazed at the overwhelming support from the blog community- it’s absolutely awesome!

Ryan’s surgery went as well as it could have.  The doctor successfully reconnected the ligaments and removed the “floater.”  What we originally thought was a piece of bone was actually cartilage.  The cartilage aorund Ryan’s ankle had completely separated from them bone so it had to be removed.  Once removed, the doctor drilled a few holes in his bone to stimulate the marrow to start regrowing.  He has a follow-up appointment scheduled the first week in December…  Until then he has a soft cast and is spending 99% of his time laying on the couch with his foot above his head.

Thanksgiving was a delightful and tasty success!  We celebrated at my momma’s house with my brother and a few family friends.  We enjoyed a popping fire, appetizers while watching football, shared stories about recent happenings, feasted on traditional Thanksgiving dishes, and celebrated birthdays!  I’m planning to share more this weekend…

I was hoping to put together a Thanksgiving themed Favorite Finds Friday post this afternoon but sometimes plans don’t go as planned, especially when you have a husband and a puppy who need help.  Ohhh the life of a wife :P

Question:  What have the past 48 hours been like for you?

Question:  Have you ever watched the TV show “Friday Night Lights”?  Ryan and I are watching it now…  I’d give it a thumbs up so far!

Whatcha Think?

  1. I just pinned that science fiction/recipe quote! And I love all the other ones. Especially the glass walkway in the house and the quote about the rain, and the bench. Actually, just all of them. Pinning things is so much fun :) I’m actually taking a break from it right now haha

  2. Oh you poor thing Allison! You certainly deserve wife of the year! I’m glad that your hubs is starting to feel better.. well as good as he can under the circumstances. Sending more prayers across the ocean though <3.

    && thanks for sharing that awesome veggie guide. I definitely saved it.

  3. I love so many of these things, but especially the veggie cooking guide…oh, the likes of a food blogger! ;)

  4. I’m really glad to hear that Ryan’s surgery went well! I bet everyone is really relieved.

    I’ve never seen the show, but I’m really curious! I enjoyed the book.

    • Thank you! We’re all definitely happy that it’s over with, now onto the recovery… Oh cool, I didn’t know there was a book! Should have assumed there was since so many movies and shows are based off of books these days :P
