Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

Ohh my gosh you guys!  I cannot believe Thanksgiving Weekend has come to an end and that it is officially the 1st of December.  {#holycraponly24daystillchristmas} Where has the time gone! I haven't even begun my Christmas shopping! {#totalslackerthisyear}.  I stuffed my face more than I thought I would this past weekend! Linkup with me @ Showered With Design & Bella @ Bella and the City for our weekly Weekend Recap.  (Make sure to use both of our links anywhere in your post) as well as grab this button.

On Wednesday after work, the husband and I started heading out to his parents house for the weekend. We brought our beloved fur babies with us this trip so pictured is Mickey looking out the window. When we arrived, we got ready and head out to town where everyone from his home town parties the night before Thanksgiving.

Thursday morning came around and I sipped coffee while watching the Thanksgiving parade on TV with my husbands little brother.  We enjoyed a nice relaxing day until dinner rolled around and we definitely feasted!  We sat around in a food coma for a few hours before we decided to head out shopping. ( I know, crazy right?)  But they did have some really good deals if you were looking for that kinda stuff.  I got a pair of boots for $20 from JC Penneys and they are sooo comfortable! They were originally priced at $89!!  It was a no-brainer!  We went to Target, a few little stores, and Kohls.  However, the line for Kohls was outrageous so we didn't end up waiting. We ended up shopping till a little after midnight and then went to Denny's for a late meal.  Then we went back home and passed out!

We woke up early Friday to continue our shopping. Brock went golfing while the ladies took on the shopping. I sported my new Michael Kors boots, Michael Kors watch, and Michael Kors purse along with leggings and a jean shirt. We tried out Kohls again, this time the line wasn't as long so we didn't mind waiting.  We also hit up Big Lots, Bath and Body Works and Dicks Sporting Goods.  We ended up shopping till about 6pm.  When we got home I got ready to head over to my husbands friends house to BBQ and play some beer pong.

Saturday we slept in for quite a long time.  Then we helped go through Christmas boxes and set up some Christmas decorations with his parents. We played Wii Bowling and of course I won the first game.  My husband and I are pretty competitive so it was funny that I beat him! We enjoyed a nice relaxing last day, and rented a movie and watched it in the gameroom. 

Sunday was our last few hours before driving home.  We helped set up the blow up Christmas decorations outside on the lawn.  I of course snapped a photo with my little dachshund staring at the blow up dachshund.  It was too funny not to!
We had a nice big delicious lunch full of ham, mac n cheese, broccoli cheese rice, mashed potatoes, and rolls and then we hit the road to head home back to reality.  We even saw a rainbow on the way home!  Too pretty!

We had such a nice visit and wonderful Thanksgiving!  When we got home I saw a package from Shutterfly.  I'll go into more detail later, but here is a photo of it.  I am so happy with how it turned out.  It's going to be the middle pillow on our couch!  So so so cute!
