Holiday Weekend Shenanigans

I cannot believe it's already December... this year totally flew by. Before we know it, we'll be counting down to the new year with champagne.

The long weekend was perfect for me almost no plans except Thanksgiving with family, enjoying leftovers, trimming the tree, and having friends over for some football. For once, I feel relaxed which I'm sure will quickly dissipate as the madness of the holiday season floods in.

Wednesday, both H and I were lucky to be given a surprise half day. So, we went to go catch a matinee of Catching Fire... FINALLY! #TeamPeeta

Thursday, I made cinnamon rolls and mimosas for breakfast while the turkey roasted in the oven. H's parents came over and we had our first Thanksgiving with family in 4 years. It was nice to have a relaxing holiday with family, and we had a game night while watching football and enjoying dessert. Of course this sent me into the obligatory food coma :-P
Somebody was a little burnt out at the end of the day from being the hostess with the mostess.... it's a rough life being a duggy.

Friday, we did some shopping and then went with our neighbors to pick out a Christmas tree. They picked up a pine and we got a frasier fir. I love how the frasier firs are fragrant and soft to touch. No getting stabbed while hanging up ornaments.

H also strung up the lights outside the house while I decorated inside with Roxy.

Saturday,  I picked up a red velvet latte at D&D (YUM!) and we did a little more shopping before I spent the day doing more decorating and working on DIY projects for our upcoming Christmas party. That night, we stayed in and had a movie night and I attempted to put together this year's gingerbread house, all I can say is at least it's still standing :-P

Sunday, friends came over for the Chiefs and Broncos game since H is a huge Chiefs fan and his buddy is a Broncos fan. The last time these two teams played was 2 weeks ago and it was fun watching the game together at sea.

So sad the long weekend is over, but looking forward to the next month of craziness and all the fun that'll come with it.

  3. YAY for a real tree!! It's to hard to have one in an apartment, but as soon as I get a house I will be getting real trees!!!

    Poor chiefs :(

  4. This weekend flew by. So much going on yet hardly any relaxing. lol

  5. I love your tree. I can't do a fake tree again next year (got one this year because it was easy but I miss the smell and look of a real one!)
