What a lovely weekend. I hope all of you had a blessed weekend as well. With the holiday of Thanksgiving upon us I want to share things I was thankful for this weekend!

Friday we had some friends over. I am VERY thankful for my friends. They are all so loving, caring, and generous. Happy news! We got the invites out for the ugly sweater party. I am SO excited!

{In advanced, sorry for all the cell phone pics! I kept forgetting my camera this weekend!}

Saturday morning Sean, my mom, and I volunteered at the new church. I am thankful to be a part of such a wonderful experience. It is an amazing feeling to be helping to bring a place of worship to our community.

Saturday also brought Minnesota our first snow fall. I am not a fan of driving in it, or the extreme cold..however it is SO beautiful, which I am thankful for. This was Remi's first snow fall, and she loved it! She bounced around in it and just had a blast!

I was just LOVING her puppy paw prints :)

OH! and my mom got me a new center piece for my table! Thanks mom! Love you and I am SO very thankful for you!

Saturday evening we had a little date night in our cozy home. We ordered some dinner, and cuddled in to watch Water for Elephants which was SO good! This movie made showed me how lucky I am to have an amazing husband. I am incredibly thankful for Sean!

Sunday we went to church, grocery shopped,then spent the rest of the day doing stuff around the house, which I am thankful to have accomplished!
-Baked Cookies
-Made ham, pickle, and cream cheese rolls (YUM)
-Listened to Christmas music
-Cooked dinner
-Endulged in my favortite Christmas candy!

One last thing I am thankful for today...a 3 day work week and a 4 day weekend!

Happy Monday Wednesday friends :)

I'm impressed by that "thankful to get done" list! Sometimes life's so busy it's hard to get anything done.
