Weekend Shenanigans

Coming back after a long holiday weekend is always the hardest, am I right? Work a full five days?!?! Raise your hand if you ate too much on Thanksgiving.

I was going through my pictures on my phone this weekend and realized that I didn’t take that many. Oops. Thanksgiving was wonderful and relaxed. We started a new tradition this year with homemade pancakes from scratch in the morning with some Thanksgiving episodes of South Park. The pancakes were delicious!!! So glad I happened to have everything on hand to make them.


We spent the day with Chris’s family at his parents house. We talked, we ate, lots of people felt my belly. I would like to point out that pineapple does not help labor along. I ate my weight in pineapple casserole this weekend (my favorite thing ever) and nothing….


I was looking through the sales ads with Chris, my BIL and SIL and feeling a little sad that I wasn’t going to be going out shopping that evening with my mom. We decided to brave the crowds around 6 and headed to Best Buy. Chris wanted to try and get the 4K monitor they had on sale and I am always down for a good deal. There was a line to get in an hour after they opened. Crazy!! My SIL and I decided to walk down to JCPenney while the boys waited. So glad we did, we both scored some amazing finds!!! The Best Buy near us didn’t have the monitor but another in the area did so the boys picked us up out front of JCPenney and we raced to the other one. Chris was able to secure his monitor!


We stayed home all day Friday. We were able to get our Christmas decorations up and my mom and sister came over that evening to see the nursery. That’s right, the nursery is all ready!!!! Come back tomorrow for the big reveal!


Saturday is like a national holiday here in Alabama with Iron Bowl!!! We headed over to Chris’s parents house early to watch Alabama put the beat down on Auburn. I thought for sure the game was going to put me into labor, but it was the damn announcers. CBS is always the worst to Alabama and this Saturday had to be the most epic disaster ever with them. They were more focused on Joe Namath and his damn fur coat than the football game that was going on. I am so glad that Vern is retiring this year. Peace out. I have a feeling it will be quiet on the Auburn side of the office this morning. Hehehe.

Of course, no weekend is complete without Mac’s Shenanigans!!! Does this guy know how to relax or what?


And now we are officially on for Baby Watch 2016. Some are more patient than others…


I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Did you score anything good for Black Friday? Have your eye on anything for Cyber Monday? Every time I hear my email ding I am like ahhhh more sales!!!!

Linking up with Biana.

    I may have been stalking you all weekend for Baby Watch! Ha! We did not go shopping but I’m scouring my favorite stores for Cyber Monday! We watched part of the Alabama game at a restaurant and I’m so glad I couldn’t hear it… the callers for the U.K. game were awful so I couldn’t take any more! Happy Monday!

    How exciting that it’s literally just any day now! We definitely had a low key holiday weekend, which was just fine with me! It’s so hard being back at work today lol… I’m dragging for sure.

    I was wondering about baby too! I am so thrilled you got your Christmas decorations up, your tree looks beautiful and I cannot wait to see the nursery reveal, the sneak peek of that little furry Poof stool and chair are darling!

    You know I’m right there with you on that baby watch! Your tree came out fabulous and lots of great eats this weekend it looks like!

    Love the sneak peek of the nursery!! I cannot wait to see it. I’m totally on Baby Watch, countdown is on. Glad you got to decorate before the baby! How exciting, any minute. Yay!

    I can’t wait to see all of the nursery! I’m glad that you were still able to get out & score some deals on Black Friday. Your tree looks perfect!

    Can’t wait for the nursery reveal!
    Brave girl going in Best Buy! We almost did but the lines were a turn off! Announcers can seriously ruin a game! During the World Series I kept the TV on mute most of the time b/c the announcers were just cruel to the Indians- GRR!

    I cant wait to see the nursery!!!
    Oh girl… I so ate WAYYYYY too much. I’m kinda glad to be back at work &to get on schedule with eating. I feel like a slug right now with all the sugar I ate.
    … & I’m also now craving homemade pancakes 🙂

    I just checked in to see if you had the baby yet and now all I can think about is pineapple casserole. I have not had that in forever and I could eat my weight in it too!!! I think I’ll make some before my Whole30!!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista November 28, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    Yay for securing the monitor after a mad dash! Love your new tradition of homemade pancakes, and how adorable is Mac? Sending well wishes that you’re not too uncomfortable waiting on baby girl’s arrival. So exciting that she’ll be making an appearance any day <3

    Aww looking forward to seeing the nursery AND hearing some baby news SOOOOOON!!! Glad you had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!!!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders November 28, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    I’m so glad that you were still able to get out and get some Black Friday shopping done this weekend, and that Chris was able to score his monitor! We didn’t go shopping too much in the stores, but I definitely did my fair share of Black Friday shopping online! It looks like Cyber Monday is pretty similar to Black Friday deals, so I might find a few more things that I “need” later on today! I’m glad that Bama won, and that you’re officially on baby watch!

    So glad you had a great Thanksgiving and were able to get some great finds for black Friday! Your tree looks so pretty. Oh yay! I can’t wait for the nursery reveal tomorrow…unless baby girl comes today, or tomorrow 🙂 Beautifully Candid

    Pineapple casserole…I’m intrigued…

  • Reply laura November 29, 2016 at 11:29 am

    Pineapple casserole — oh, I love that stuff. I didn’t have any this year, so I guess I will live through your delicious picture. I’m glad you got to go out and at least get a little shopping done. And probably a good thing that you had a nice low key weekend – cuz it’s about to get crazy — if/when little miss decides to show up. 🙂

    Your tree is lovely!

  • Reply texerinsydney November 30, 2016 at 2:38 am

    Pineapple casserole?!? What?!?! That sounds delish!
    I thought of you during the Iron Bowl. I hope you thought of me (and mourned for me) with our loss to LSU.
    Baby Watch! Yay!
