Long Weekend + Exciting Announcement!

Happy Monday, friends! 

Hope you're feeling relaxed and rejuvenated after a long Thanksgiving weekend.  I unfortunately came down with ANOTHER head cold/sinus infection and it's been pretty brutal.  My holiday weekend was spent with my good friends Kleenex, cough drops and hot showers ;) but tis the season for these things I guess!  


On Thanksgiving morning, we packed our bags (and the chocolate pie) and headed up to my families for a delicious feast with just our immediate family which was really nice.  The food was ahhmazing and Brady even got his own bowl this year of turkey, mashed potatoes, a roll and applesauce - he was in heaven!  That afternoon I could already feel the scratchy throat coming on so we called it a very early night in hopes of getting up and going Black Friday shopping in the morning.

Unnnntil I didn't sleep the entire night, boo.  The stuffy nose and coughs kept me up (and probably everyone else in the house, sorry about that guys) so my family headed out the next morning to shop without me.  Nick was also out of the house about 3am to head up north to go hunting with his dad and that began my weekend on the couch. So thankful for my family for letting me crash until Sunday and doing everything from taking my dog out to delivering me meds to making me mac and cheese.  Not quite the weekend I had pictured, but it happens and I'll be getting a flu shot this week so fingers crossed it's the last sickness of the season!


Last night we put up some of our Christmas decor and it's got me all in the festive mood.  Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of December?!  And what better way to ring the most wonderful month of the year in than with a holiday link up?  Sara, Pinky and I are so excited to bring you... Countdown to Christmas!  Join us every Tuesday through the holiday season to talk about all things Christmas.  You can post about anything you want - recipes, decor, traditions, wish lists, anything!  Just link up with us and spread the cheer :)

Can't wait to see all of your posts tomorrow + I hope you had wonderful Thanksgivings!

  2. Such a bummer to be sick again! You should have some emergen-C on hand at all times! And I swear by elderberry syrup for a cough or sore throat. Slippery elm is good too!

  7. I've been craving that chocolate pie ever since you posted it the other day, I'm sure it was delish! And how adorable that Brady got his own bowl of Thanksgiving goodies! I'm sorry you were so sick this weekend *boooo*, but hope you feel better soon. Wait until you are feeling all better before you go to get your flu shot or it can increase your symptoms ;-)

  10. We had so much dessert on Thanksgiving. I texted my mom asking for a family dessert recipe and she told me not to bring anything else, because they already had plenty! Other than the turkey, all the dessert is my second favorite thing about Thanksgiving. Hope you feel better!

  12. Hope your feeling better now! LOVE that Brady got his own bowl - on Thanksgiving Eve my mom was feeding Stella just about everything and for the actual meal at my in-laws, Derek and I kept sneaking her turkey bites! Spoiled little adorable pups we have!

  24. You know you cant type the words "Announcement" & everyone doesnt think you're going to say you're pregnant :)
    Hope you're feeling better. Colds are everywhere!! YIKES!

  25. Girl hope you get better! That doesn't sound fun at all! The week before Thanksgiving and the few days before I lost my hearing and dealt with horrible pressure against my ears, and then when it seemed to be clearing up I ruptured my eardrums on Thanksgiving....so that was fun. Didn't stop me from Black Friday shopping though, although, ONLINE only, there was no way I was heading out with ruptured eardrums. At least Brady was there to comfort you :)
