Thanksgiving Weekend

I had a really nice Thanksgiving.  Some family came in town, we had some amazing food and spent a lot of quality time together. It was also my nephew's first Thanksgiving, and apparently he loved it too.

My sweet little nephew

Black Friday was a success.  For the first time, my aunt and I decided to try out midnight shopping at the outlet malls close by.  Huge mistake.  The news reported that there were over 60,000 people there.  Oh and no where to park either. It was all made up for when I bought my Christmas gift to me this year....

Love it!!

We left the house at 11:00 Thursday night and didn't get home until 2:00 on Friday.  My sister and cousin said they might go with us, I had to warn them that it was a marathon shopping event not for the weak.  They declined and were glad they did when we were gone for 15 hours.  I love giving gifts.  I love to make my friends and family feel special by giving them something that made me think of them.  And no, it doesn't have to be something I bought, it can be something I made or found haha, anything really.  I really mean it when I say I would rather give someone something than receive a gift.

I love the holidays.  We have the lights on the Christmas tree, I'm going to make some hot chocolate and snuggle with John on the couch while we watch some tv, could it get any better?


  1. THat's crazy! I definitely do NOT have the courage to face the crowds at the mall on Black Friday. :D ADORABLE bag, though!
