Thanksgiving break recap!!

One of the biggest perks of being a teacher is getting the same breaks for all holidays like when we were younger!!
 
Minus one set back, I enjoyed every minute of last week. I didn't realize how much it was needed until the other night when I was pouting that it was over. Here is my big recap from the week!!
 
I don't have a picture (bad blogger, I know) but last Monday I had lunch with a friend at a place called Whiskey Cake. We went to the one in Plano and it was so good!! The whiskey cake is to die for!!! Had another lunch with a group of teacher friends on Tuesday. It is so mince being able to catch up with everyone that you don't get to spend as much time with (even if you see them at work everyday!)

We left for our parents house after Chris got off work on Wednesday. He started to not feel good late that night and ended up coming down with the flu. Boo.. not how I wanted to start or spend my vacation (I'm sure he didn't either!). The rest of the week/weekend was spent driving all over the place so that I (H stayed in bed most of the week) could visit all of our family. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking..

Me with my sister and cousin! 

Love this picture of us!!

Chris & I- he was trying to smile and enjoy his time out of bed...

My mom recently moved and is slowly unpacking.. When my parents got divorced (a long time ago), my dad turned his wedding ring into a necklace for my sister and earrings for me. My home had put them in a "safe place" and for the longest time could not find them. We were going through a bag of jewelry and found them. I was almost in tears when she said this was them.. I had never seen them, just had heard about them. They are so special and will now be in a special place in MY house!! 

We said our goodbyes and headed home this past Sunday afternoon. I was itching to get home and get our Christmas decorations out!! Here is our tree that I absolutely love!!

Couple other decorations on the mantle (sorry for the bad quality pic, it's from my phone). If I get around to it, I will do a full post of our Christmas decorations!

I have enjoyed reading all of your Thanksgiving recaps!! It is just want I needed to motivate me enough to post mine!! 

Have a great rest of the week,
