Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

30 Nov

Happy Wednesday! What a crazy week back at work it has been, but I can’t believe it’s already almost halfway done! I’m definitely reveling in my Christmas glory right now and soaking up every single second of holiday cheer. I figured I would do a brief “sentence per picture” type of recap to catch up on what we did this past weekend.

Wednesday night consisted of lots of wine and laughter with the ladies and gents.


Our contribution to my Grandma’s Thanksgiving feast was this glorious baked pumpkin mac and cheese with roasted brussels sprouts.


The turkey was perfection as usual.


Naturally we ate alllll the food and loved every single bite.


Christmas card photos were taken. (PS. my dress and boots are from Old Navy)


Aunt Beth’s cheesecake looked absolutely incredible. Sad to say, I didn’t have any as my survival tactic for three Thanksgiving dinners was skipping dessert 😦


We actually took the time out to make breakfast on Sunday morning! Well it was almost noon but brunch is just as good 😉


I used up our turkey leftovers to make some turkey and corn chowder on Sunday night. Last night I also made my first attempt at turkey pot pie and according to the hubby, it was a hit!



That’s all for today folks! I’m attending a fun blogger event tomorrow evening so I will be back in the near future to recap that. Have a great rest of your week!
