Thanksgiving and Cyber Sales

Hello friends!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break!  It went by so quickly didn’t it!?  We had such a fun trip to Utah to visit family.

My girls ran their first Turkey Trot with their dad!  I’ve been dealing with knee issues and have to have surgery in January (boo) so I was bummed I couldn’t join them.  But I went along for moral support/cheerleading anyway.  Bright and early! If we look half asleep in this picture it’s because we were. :)

Their cute cousin and my brother-in-law joined them.

Proud of my girls!  It was such a fun way to kick off the holiday.

Then back to moms to cook the turkey!  My mom and brother do most of the cooking and I make a great assistant.  In my flare sleeve sweater that’s a total fire hazard around the stove.  Ha.  My family knows I’m good to peel a few potatoes and then find other fun jobs.. set the table, play with the kids, tidy up the living room.  Anything but cook.  Some things never change. :)

The weather was beautiful so the kids spent a lot of time in my parent’s yard and treehouse.  (You can see more treehouse details in this post.)

And what did I do for four straight days other than avoid kitchen duty?

I held my new niece!  Meet Quincy.  Isn’t she a doll!?  I couldn’t be more in love.

K – I promise I won’t bore you all with baby pictures.  After this post. ;)  But I seriously couldn’t get enough of this sweet girl!  She is absolutely perfect.

And btw.. my favorite cardigan is not only incredibly comfortable, but also doubles to make the coziest baby blanket. ;)  Is she not the most precious thing!?

My mom snapped this last picture of us.  We both fell asleep in the chair one evening.  I couldn’t put her down!  There is just something about a new baby and I miss this stage with my kids so much.  Quincy and I totally bonded and when I said good-bye I got such a huge lump in my throat and couldn’t help tearing up.  Sometimes not living close to my family is hard.  My brother wanted to know why I never cry when I say good-bye to him.  Ha. ;)

Back in the swing of things now that we’re home and I’m so excited it’s almost December!  I can finally listen to Christmas music without getting any grief!  (I’ve been playing it since mid October.) :)  I have lots of fun decorating to share with you all.  Isn’t getting the house ready for the holidays the best!?  I’m almost finished with my Christmas shopping and am so excited about the great sales going on right now!  I linked some of the fun things on sale for Cyber Monday below.  Stuff that I love and already have or am buying today.  These are my favorite stores that I’ve been stopping by tonight!  On my couch and in my pj’s with the TV on and a bowl of popcorn next to me.  Best way to shop. :)

xoxo, Erin

  1. Ohhh Erin! I’m so sorry to read that you have to have surgery on your knee! I hope it goes well and you can soon turkey trot with the best of them! Hugs! Your new niece is precious and you look really good holding her. Her parents dress her to the nines, too! :) Those leg warmers slayed me. Sweet, sweet photos. Sounds like the trip was a great time for all and now you are ready to hit December running! I found out we are going to be short at my work for at least this next week, possibly two.
