Hey there! How is your day going? How was your Thanksgiving?! Mine has been great. We drove home today from Winfield and have spent the day relaxing and watching Christmas movies. I also ordered our Christmas cards! Can’t wait for them to get here. But let’s back up a few days and catch up!
Wednesday morning started out with a killer work out. Always good to start out a long holiday weekend with a good workout.
Wednesday night we celebrated Thanksgiving with my family. My mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and Levi headed to dinner at Q39. It is a local BBQ restaurant. With my family we generally go out to eat because my mom caters and she is usually burnt out on holiday food by the time Thanksgiving rolls around 🙂 So BBQ was on the menu! We always laugh so much when we are together and it was a fun night!
Thursday morning we got up nice and early and packed up the car to head to Winfield. We were packed to the brim!! Ollie is so cute in her little Christmas sweater that Levi got her!
We got there around 12:15 and Thanksgiving dinner was served at 1. Perfect timing! I didn’t get any pictures while I was there. I was too busy chatting away the day with family.
Friday afternoon we took some pictures for Christmas cards. Our friend Kiersten takes awesome pictures and she took a couple for us to use. She is awesome with light. I used our favorite one for our Christmas card but here are some of the others. The sunlight behind us is my favorite!! Thanks so much girl!
I wore my favorite booties for the pictures and they are on sale right now for $77. I love them!
I also loved the coziness of this off the shoulder sweater. So comfy and great for fall!
I am so very thankful for this loving and handsome man. He makes me smile every day and I am lucky to call him mine!
Taking pictures with dogs is tough work…especially in the woods with new sights and smells!
After pictures we went to dinner at El Maguey with Levi’s dad and had some margaritas. I love their food…but who doesn’t love Mexican food covered in cheese dip!
After dinner we headed out to our friends’ house (John and Kiersten) to hang out with Levi’s high school friends. It is always a good time when we get together. The guys all have so many inside jokes and stories and we don’t stop laughing the whole time. We stayed out past our bed time and it was so worth it. I was only able to snag one selfie at the end of the night!
Saturday was spent hanging out around the house and we even snuck in a little Burger Station for lunch. It is a tiny hole in the wall but has the most amazing cheeseburgers. I was in heaven. Needless to say after this weekend, I need to clean up my eating and hit it hard in the gym this week!
Levi and I plan on doing a little clean eating challenge until 12/31. Lots of veggies and protein on the menu with one treat meal a week. It will be tough but worth it to start the new year out on the right foot.
I ordered a new planner on Plum Paper and added the fitness and blog bundles as well as extra stickers. It arrived today and I am already obsessed with it! It is perfect for setting goals and staying organized. I got it in the brush lime color and they are having 30% off tomorrow for Cyber Monday!
Our long Thanksgiving weekend was fabulous and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was the perfect mix of family time and relaxing. Tomorrow it’s back to the daily routine but sometimes that’s nice too! Have an awesome night!
