Thanksgiving Weekend

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I cannot believe how quickly the holiday flew by. Here is a recap of our holiday in photos!


We spent turkey day in Winston this year with Matt’s family. He has a large family so it is always so great to see everyone in one place! After a delicious meal we headed to his grandparents house down the road to decorate their home for Christmas!

Black Friday

 Let me just say that Black Friday turned out completely opposite as I had planned. For the past week, I have had a very detailed shopping plan of attack consisting of World Market, Crate & Barrel, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn and more. Well that all changed when Matt and I decided to scratch our shopping plans and start a new project – building {this} farmhouse dining table for our new home. So we spent a majority of our Black Friday shopping at Home Depot.

While Matt was hard at work, I decided to cook a little {16 lb} turkey for ourselves. This was the first time I ever cooked a turkey so I was a little nervous. With the help an incredible brine recipe {here} our turkey turned out delicious!


 Saturday we spent most of the day watching football, specifically Ohio State vs. Michigan and Florida vs. Florida State. Both Matt and I were pretty happy with both of our teams. Later we had 3 other couples over for a game night. We played my favorite game in the world, “things…” If you don’t already own this, I highly suggest asking Santa for it.


 Sunday we went Christmas tree shopping at a small lot at the end of our street. For the past 3 years we have ended up with a “Charlie Brown” style Christmas tree since our living room was so tiny. But now that we are in our new house with much taller ceilings, we sprung for an 8 foot tree! More details and pictures to come in a separate post on our tree and Christmas decorations around the house.

I can't wait for you to post pictures of how that table turned out. My father in law builds us stuff all the time! I love "home made" things like that!
