Thanksgiving Weekend





I have so much to be thankful for this season. Godly husband. Loving family. Health. Happiness. Friendships. God. Job. Eye sight. Shelter. Church. Small group. I feel so blessed.









This four day weekend was amazing and so relaxing. Thursday morning we watched the parade and I made crock pot macaroni and cheese to bring to my parent's. We spent quality time with family and saw my brother since he was back in town from NYC. We ate good food, laughed a lot and enjoyed the company of relatives we don't see often.


Friday we slept in, went for a long walk, and then decided to try and go shopping. We were going to go to Best Buy and see if they had any TVs left, but stopped at Kohls first. If you know me at all, you know I hate crowds. As soon as stepped in Kohls it was hot and crowded. I could barely move there were so many people so I needed to get out of there. We headed to Target next, but couldn't even find a parking spot, got stuck in traffic trying to get to Best Buy and by then we were stressed and decided to just go home. It wasn't worth it. All of our neighbors were putting up lights which made we really wish we purchased lights. Speaking of lights, Friday night we went to a Light Parade in our little town. LOVE it.



Saturday Garth watched lots of football and I read. I am currently obsessed with John Grisham novels. He is such a great writer! Sunday we went to church with the whole family which nevers happens anymore since all the kids have moved. It was nice to be back! After church we went to my parents' house to celebrate my dad's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!). We had chili and cake. We hung out and talked and gave gifts and then said good-bye to my brother as he heads back to NYC.



We ended the holiday weekend with some TV and thai food. Perfection! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

I hate crowds too! And I hate to shop when there is too much people! So annoying!
