Weekend Shenanigans

Does anyone else look at the calendar from November through the end of December and think….whoa. How do we cram so much in to two months?? But, it is also my favorite time of year, so I don’t really mind one bit! It is just a little overwhelming at the start of it.

This weekend was a full one, and kicked it off Saturday when we met Laura and her crew at Ferus Ales for lunch. We enjoyed some delicious appetizers of pork belly, cuban egg rolls, fries and wings. For the main course, I had a burger that had beer cheese and onion rings. DELICIOUS!!!! I tried a Key Lime Gose from Westbrook and blueberry sour that was wonderful as well.

Trying to take pictures of the kids is quite hilarious. This is the best we could do. How sweet are they holding hands???

And Laura reminded me that we haven’t taken a picture together in almost three years. That is unacceptable! So that happened too!

Saturday evening we watched Auburn squeak by Old Miss, and I got some stuff done around the house. Zoe and I took a cold walk outside to see our neighbors Christmas display. Their blow up Monster went down the same day the Santa went up. Zoe is obsessed with going down there every night to say hi, not matter how dark or cold it is. I think we are going to have to decorate outside this year to keep her happy!

Sunday morning, I met my sister at Aldi to do some grocery shopping. We also made a trip to Lowe’s, Target and TJ Maxx. I love that all the Christmas stuff is getting put out! It is my favorite section of the store to walk through. I know some people bitch about rushing the holidays, but honestly, Thanksgiving and Christmas are one BIG holiday for me. They both bring so much togetherness and joy…why delay that? If it isn’t your thing, don’t look at it and let the rest of us be happy!

    Yeah, I don’t get why people complain about Christmas starting “early.” It’s fun and honestly, there isn’t much to do when it comes to celebrating Thanksgiving. LOL Love the picture of you and Laura. 🙂

    I just said that to the Hubs that we’re basically at the end of the year… even with 2 months ahead. It’ll zoom by with all the busy.
    LOVE your leopard cardi!!!

    It’s so crazy how much we all fit in but it is one of the best times of the year! Yum, that food looks so good. I love your animal print cardi. Shopping through the Christmas sections has been so so fun. Unfortunately some people will never be pleased of like to find something to complain about.

    I think it’s cute to see what the trendy decorations are for Christmas each year in the stores. Target is always definitely on the forefront of that!
    I’m decorating this week, so not shame/guilt here!

    I saw something on the news that said people who decorate early for Christmas are more naturally joyful people, SO THERE!! I love walking through and seeing all the Christmas decorations – it is magical. Had so much fun hanging out with you guys, and we really need to make that a more reoccurring thing!

    You both look great in your photo!! Yay for yummy, fun, productive weekends! I always feel like the end of Sept. through mid-Nov. is crazy busy for us, then December slows down just a little bit. I think it has to do with work load- not family obligations. Lol
