Weekend Recap

This might just be the Monday-ist Monday ever. We had a nice long 5 day break over Thanksgiving break which may or may not have caused problems when it was time to wake up with an alarm this morning.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, how was yours? Ours was great and not super busy. We had lunch at my in-laws then dinner at my parents. It was pretty relaxing.

Did you go Black Friday shopping? My mom, grandma and I went Friday afternoon. Got a few good deals. I think we spend most of our money at Kirkland’s. Haha. That store just sucks me in every time. And every time I want to buy allllll the things.


Saturday we put up the Christmas tree and got everything ready for Santa. Our girls are pretty excited for Santa this year. The hubs and I went out for dinner Saturday evening also. We went to Chinese, alone, no kids, got to eat our dinner still hot. Ha Sometimes eating out with kids isn’t great.


Sunday we did a whole lot of nothing. Decorated the hubs classroom for Christmas then we just hung out at home and I made a delicious noddle casserole with leftover turkey from my moms Thanksgiving.

We had a great 5 days off but I’m more than ready to get back into a routine again. Today I’ll be working on laundry. Also, I’m going to be finalizing the girls Christmas list. And finalize what I’m getting the hubs.

Do you have all your gifts purchased?

I hope y’all have a great Monday and I hope it isn’t to Monday-ish for ya!

Thanksgiving Outfit

Hey y’all! I can’t believe its already Thursday. This week went by way to fast. And I can not believe next week is Thanksgiving! Do you guys have big plans for turkey day? We usually hit up my in-laws for lunch and my parents for dinner. I think that’s still the plan this year, even though my mom doesn’t have a kitchen right now to cook in. She completely gutted her kitchen and it redoing it. They think it’ll be done by Wednesday. If not I guess we’ll be ordering Chinese.



I love finding a new cute and easy outfits for the holiday. I typically wear a sweater with skinny jeans. Nothing fancy since we’re just headed to our parents. I definitely know not to wear something that’s to hot since I usually try and help in the kitchen.

This outfit is so comfy and lightweight. This sweater is just perfect for the day. Plus I love adding this vest to it. This vest is my absolutely favorite. I pair it with almost every outfit this time of year. I mean who doesn’t love a army green vest!

I can’t wait to wear this next week.

Really, I just can’t wait till next week. 5 day weekend! Time with family, good delicious home-cooked meals, my favorite grandma’s cheesy broccoli rice casserole, this outfit, and black Friday shopping!

What are you plans for Thanksgiving? Are you a black Friday shopper?
