Weekend Wrap Up & PopSugar

Happy Tuesday!

The first few days after a break are the worst. I am still playing catch up on all the work I should have finished this week. 

I want to hit replay from last Tuesday and have another break all over again. On the bright side, I am less than 3 weeks away from ending the semester.

This weekend was all about quality time with family, Zack & our friends. 

On Wednesday, I went to the Doctor and ran a lot of errands. It always helps to run errands in new shoes :) 




I started Thanksgiving off by watching the Macy's Parade and shopping online. Mia was not entertained by my shenanigans 






On Thanksgiving, Zack & I celebrated with his family. We visited both of his grandmothers and I am so thankful for the time we could spend with them.




I was housesitting for my parents while they were visiting other family. We decided to do a modified version of Thanksgiving dinner.  It was quiet, and the perfect way to unwind from a busy day.  
We decided to do this very last minute, and thankfully I had received my Popsugar box on Monday. 
Popsugar sent me the best must-have box this November. It had the perfect tableware for our impromptu fancy dinner.

November's box also included a Kendra Scott bracelet. The delicate details just gives me all the heart eyes. I wore it to Thanksgiving dinner.

On Friday morning, we hit the Black Friday sales. We were in and out in about 2 hours. Shopping at 7am has its perks, we didn't have any lines and we got great customer service.
We have made Black Friday a tradition for us, we love trying to pick the times with no crowds. 


We came back to the house by 9am and started decorating for Christmas and watching Netflix. We are now hooked on Broadchurch. It's so good! 
We ended the night by going to a playoff game with Zack's close friends. 

Saturday 
We watched Broadchurch and college football and ate leftovers. It was the perfect lazy day.


Sunday
We went to church, downtown for lunch and watched more Broadchurch.

Let's Talk: Christmas Traditions

My Favorite Christmas Tradition:



I can't believe it's already Monday. I feel like I need a whole week to recover from my Thanksgiving Break. We packed a lot into the past 5 days. But no time for rest, because it's officially CHRISTMAS SEASON!wahoo! I started decorating on Friday, and I have been playing Christmas music ever since!
Today, I am linking up with Erika & Andrea to talk about my favorite traditions. My family has one that is now been shared across three generations, so I am going to focus on that today!


 This Christmas Treat  that has been in my family for years. Memaw has made the Christmas trees for as long as my dad can remember. This is my favorite family tradition we have. We have our Christmas tree for breakfast every single year that I can remember. 


We let the rolls bake while we get going on Christmas morning... When my sister & I were little we would eat them after presents, but now that we our older and sleeping in a little later, we make them first as we drink our coffee.

The orange flavored cinnamon rolls are a must, but recently Pillsbury has stopped making them, so we have to use our local grocery store's brand. I really hope they make a comeback.










I have the full recipe with step by step instructions & a shopping list here

This will be me the rest of the semester: 


Happy Monday, friends!
