Back to Reality, Weekend Recap!

Well it is Monday. The long beautiful weekend filled with family, friends, and food is over. It is very hard for me to go back to reality. Back to getting up at 4:30am to go to work, not seeing my family as much, and about a 100% decline in the amount of rest and relaxation I get during the week. However, I am going to  take on this week on a postive note...27 days until Christmas, which means a whole 10 days off of work!

Before I recap this wonderful weekend, I must admit I was a horrible blogger and forgot my camera for the family get togethers...I am super bummed considering it was Sean and my first Thanksgiving as a married couple. Oh well, life goes on right?

Wednesday Sean and I went to dinner with my sister Jaclyn and our friend Jesse. Afterwards we met up with my older sister Jessica and her boyfriend Jory to celebrate his birthday! It was a blast!

Thursday was the big day! We spend Thanksgiving with Sean's family this year. There was a lot of laughs, eating, and catching up. It was a fun time! Afterwards we went to his parents house to pick up this:

My dad's snowmobile. It has been in storage for quite a while now at Sean's parents, so we are both very excited to have it home and ready to take out! I have a lot of great childhood memories riding this sled with my dad!

Friday we got up pretty early and headed out to get some black Friday shopping in. It actually wasn't too bad. I got a few gifts checked off the list, and we got our Christmas tree and all of the decorations for it at an amazing price! We also found Remi an ugly sweater for our upcoming ugly sweater party. She isn't too excited about it, but it's perfect!

Once we got home we instantly started on the tree!! It turned out beautiful!

Saturday we wasted the day away with Christmas music and movies, relaxing, eating, and indulging in time to just be! It was so wonderful!

Sunday we had a second Thanksgiving at Sean's brothers. The food here was amazing, we all stuffed ourselves until we couldn't anymore! We also got to spend some time with the newest addition the family, our nephew Keniston. He is so stinkin cute and growing up so fast!

I am so very thankful for such a perfect weekend. I hope all of yours were blessed and full of love! I am off to catch up on your blogs now :)
