Thanksgiving Break Recap

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I'm officially in full Christmas mode. We've decorated our house, Mark put the lights up outside, and I even started wrapping presents. I am a total Christmas- freak... I just love it. Let's not forget Thanksgiving though... we had a great time when we were home and I can believe how fast it was here and then over. So sad!

We got into town on Tuesday night and had dinner with my parents and my mother in law, Lauren. We went to bed pretty early because we were exhausted. On Wednesday, we ran errands and then met up with some family friends at the Hofbraushaus. Mark is obsessed with German food, so I knew he would love it. The place was pretty dead but it was still fun.

On Thanksgiving day, we went over to Bob and Lora's for breakfast and to watch football. I was really terrible at taking pictures this week and barely have any, whoops!

We headed back to the house after the Lions game and my mom started preparing everything for dinner. It was a pretty low key day, we just played games, watched football, and had lots of snacks. The food was delicious and we all went to bed with full bellies.

On Friday, my mom, Lora, and I all went Black Friday shopping. It's a tradition and we love the craziness of it all. We don't go until like 8 or 9 because we aren't trying to get any hot ticket items. It's much less stressful when you aren't looking for something in particular. I ended up getting a lot of great deals and checked some people off my Christmas gift list.

Then the best part of the whole weekend... GILMORE GIRLS!! My mom and I had been planning a girls night for weeks to celebrate the launch of the final 4 episodes. I don't want to ruin it for anyone else who hasn't seen it yet, but holy moly it was good! We watched all 4 episodes that night so it was a little much lol. I recommend breaking it up in chunks!

On Saturday, we watched the Michigan v. Ohio State game. Sadly, Michigan lost but it was such a good game. It definitely kept us on the edge of our seats.

My mom and I headed back out to a local store that was having a Shop Small Saturday sale and bought more Christmas gifts.  Later on, we went to dinner at a Hibachi place and it was soooo good!

Afterwards, we were in bed super early because we planned on leaving Vegas at 4:00 a.m. to head back to SD. The traffic is always awful after Thanksgiving and we wanted to beat it. Luckily, we didn't really hit traffic but it was a little slow because of the rain. All in all, it was a great weekend!
