And we're back

Everyone setting thanksgiving dinner...

Sorry it's been a while! I took a little vaca from my computer over Thanksgiving but here is the recap--

We had a really fun and relaxing stay in my hometown. We got in Wednesday night after a two hour ride in the car with ms. reagan who screamed and meowed all the way. Thursday was fun--we went to work lunch at the local Daily Bread where they serve meals for the homeless or anyone who needs a hot lunch or dinner. We went through soo much food it was unbelievable. After that we went back home and put in the turkey, watching some football here and there, and getting ready for the big meal. The turkey Mom made was soo good--she used a Barefoot Contessa recipe where you spread butter and herbs under the skin of the bird before you cook it, yum! We didn't do the Black Friday thing...it's just not my style to get up at 4 am, unless it's J Crew related ;-) On that note we did hit both outlets on Friday and found out about the secret! J Crew warehouse sale later that day, I guess it was word of mouth only. We came back, haha, at 3 pm when they opened the floor of the warehouse--it was the best sale ever. I found this coat:

And these boots:

Saturday and Sunday flew by. We didn't do much except well eat...obviously, and take long walks with my parents dog. There is a pasture with a horse barn close to where we live so we took some carrots and apples up to the horses. Overall it was an awesome weekend and I needed the break from work like you wouldn't believe.

The kids...


  1. Sounds so fun! I love that you got to give out meals - I always remember too late and the my favorite place here is overrun with volunteers at the holidays. Next year, though. And that is my favorite J.Crew coat. I love the ruffles!

  2. Great coat! i love the ruffle detail!!!

  3. Ooh I love that coat!! Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. Can't believe how big your brother has gotten! WOW! How's he doing and how is Erin? The last time I saw her was at Coldstone Creamery in Lynchburg a year or more ago. My concept of time has flown out the window lately! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving!
