Thanksgiving and Weekend {Update}

I hope everyone had a very family filled amazing weekend! It was such a special time for us not only because this is our first Thanksgiving as a married couple, but also because it was exactly 1 year ago that Z popped the question!

I will always love Thanksgiving not only for the family time but for being the time of year that my life changed in an amazing way!


We had 2, yes 2 Thanksgivings this year. One with my parents on Wednesday night and one Thursday at my grandparents house. We are definitely feeling and seeing all that we ate!

My Step Dad smoked our turkey on Wednesday night and it was sooo delicious! If you have never had smoked turkey you need to asap!

Z also enjoyed watching Texas beat A&M on Thanksgiving day. He is the only longhorn fan in a family of Aggies..makes for a fun time watching games!

Sweet little Acer of course is always UT ready with his collar that his grandparents bought him!


I talked my Mom into going on Thursday night to Walmart at 930pm so that I could get sheets and movies! We were seriously re-thinking our idea once we got to Walmart.

This was the craziness for electronics

And this is the craziness for 600 thread count sheets for $19, sad to say but I did push a little boy out of the way so that I could get the chocolate brown sheets I wanted! I had a lady coaching me on what to do the whole time!

My cute Momma with her $2.68 food chopper and paper shredder that she was very worried she was not going to get!

We made it in and out with no scratches, bruises or being maced in 20 mins! Success!

Since Thanksgiving is officially over it was time to break out all of our Christmas Decor! I was super excited to decorate our tree this year because I got some amazing stuff at Hobby Lobby for 50% off...don't buy anything at Hobby Lobby unless it's 50% off!

Little Acer is already in the Christmas Spirit!

Oh Christmas tree oh Christmas tree....I have to say I could not have put together such a cute tree without Alyssa and my Mom! I become non-creative when it comes to decorating a tree!

And lastly, I made my very first pot roast on Sunday night! My man even loved it! I got an awesome crock pot recipe, here, and it is sooo good I will be making it again!

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!!
