Holiday Season Kick-off!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!  We shared the day with my Parents and Hubby’s Grandfather and are all very thankful for the many blessings of this past year.

Ever since I can remember Thanksgiving has been my favorite day! I love the anticipation that comes with knowing next few weeks will be full of seeing old friends, looking at Christmas lights, wearing sparkly things, everyone being extra nice and friendly, eating and drinking rich, delicious things, baking cookies, decorating, cuddling by the Christmas tree and celebrating with those we love! Umm, can you tell I love the Holidays?!? 

Our weekend was full of Holiday Cheer!! We completely stuffed ourselves with a delicious meal, did a little Black Friday shopping and started decorating our home. The kick off to the Holiday Season would not be complete without some pictures! If you follow me on instagram you’ve already seen a few of these, but if not, enjoy! :)

Our Thanksgiving stuffing is my late Uncle’s recipe – might be my favorite-ist food ever!

My Mom got this adorable Turkey Mum for our table.
Our delicious Turkey!
Our latest food tradition – going strong for two years now – homemade cranberry sauce! Yum!
Turkey Butter for the Hubs!
Enjoying a romantic sunrise in the mall parking lot on Black Friday!
Proudly wearing my new shirt from American Signature’s gift bags – this will certainly become my new black friday uniform!
Channeling our inner Griswold’s for some outside decorating!

Do you have any fun Thanksgiving weekend traditions?

Little Caesar goes to the Beach!

My little family decided to head to the shore yesterday!  It was a hot, humid, cloudy day at home but thankfully the beach was sunny and pleasant!

We’ve taken Caesar with us before but this was his longest beach day by far – we were there a good 5 hours!  I know he can’t really tell us, but I think these pictures show he may have had the greatest day of all time…

All packed and ready (we bring just as much for Caesar as we do for us…)Parked and waiting patiently in our tote for the hike to the ocean to startLaying on the blanket taking it all in…You know, just laying here relaxing…Yes, this is a very sandy little AffenpinscherKeeping a close eye on a new seagull friend…And very sad to leave!

Caesar learned that the only downside to a great beach day is the bath that follows the second we get home…
It wasn’t the best part of his day but I think the rest of it made up for it!
