this past week we had all sorts of fun with the family over thanksgiving! we all gathered at my aunt michele's house for lunch and dove right in...and yes, luckily this girl got her appetite back JUST in time for turkey, dressing (my favorite), and loads of pumpkin pie. we celebrated all we have to be grateful for-specifically this little one seen below-and spent the day relaxing...what could be better!
friday morning, i woke up and jeff was instantly persuading me to hit the ground running with mom and take on the black friday shopping extravaganza, as he knew i'd be devastated if i didn't do some major shopping for presents. i was so ready to get out of the house and it was so thoughtful of him to hang out with caroline for the day so i could have some 1 on 1 time with mimi... lucky for us, we racked up on some GREAT sales (a few christmas gifts purchased and some must haves for us, too) and i finally bought our very own cuisinart/keurig coffee maker...OHHH LALA! fyi: i'm in love with it already. i have been converted and doubt i will ever go back my friends. and yes, it makes the most heavenly hot cocoa, too.
that evening, we got out the hoards of holiday rubbermaid bins, put on some christmas tunes, and let the decorating commence...being at home with my little family made my heart so very happy. this holiday season is going to be my favorite i do believe!
ok, another start to the week...wanting this to be a productive one because we have a gala friday night and saturday we fly out for california! hope you had a FANTABULOUS thanksgiving!
