Thanksgiving



Happy December 2nd, friends! It's hard to believe it's already December but I'm embracing it with open arms, I love this festive month! 

We had a great Thanksgiving last week. A lot of good food and a lot of quality family time. We spent time with my mom's side of the family on Wednesday night and had desserts and game night, then Thursday morning we got up and made breakfast and coffee just in time to sit down and enjoy it as the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade started. One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving, I love the parade! I literally ate breakfast then danced around the living room the rest of the morning mimicking the Rockettes (love them!) and jamming out the all of the performances.

We went to my dad's side in the early afternoon then hit the road to Aiken to spend time with my in-laws. My mother in law had us go around the table and say something we were thankful for and someone we loved about the person sitting to the right of us, I loved hearing everyone's thoughts!

We got home that night and loved on Murphy then jumped in bed to gear up for Black Friday. We didn't get up early, I suspect we walked into Target about 10:45 that morning and got home from the mall at 3 that afternoon. That, my friends, is my kind of Black Friday shopping. I only had to get angry at one driver on the road and foot traffic in most of the stores wasn't all that bad ;) We got some great deals and knocked out quite a bit of our Christmas gift list. Mom and I went out on Saturday to finish us some shopping we needed to do together and after hanging with Josh at home for a while Saturday evening, I made a surprise visit to mom and dad's house that night. Sometimes it is so good for the soul to drive back roads, listening to Christmas music, and arriving at your parents house to enjoy some quality time.

Coming back to work was hard yesterday morning, ha!

I hope y'all had a GREAT Thanksgiving and have a December filled with love and festive things! I finished up our Christmas cards last night and can't wait to get them in the mail this week! After they've had time to arrive at their destinations, I'll post them here!
