A Thanksgiving Photo Overload

((So I may or may not be avoiding working on some major school projects right now))

I thought I'd pop in and share a few scenes from my Thanksgiving!

For the first time in years, I was able to spend almost a whole week with my parents. I went to work with my dad one day, got to visit a good friend from high school, had quality sister time, visited both sets of grandparents, and ate LOTS of delicious food. I had some quality time to reflect on how blessed I am, and just focus on thankfulness. 

I left my camera in my purse for most of our time and tried to focus on where I was, but here are some snapshots of our week. 

Got to have lunch with my best friend Monday before I drove to my parents' house! I rocked some #cheapgirlfashion with a hand me down cardigan, $3 tank top (JCP), $10 jeans (F21), free red shoes (Blowfish shoes), and a headband from my sister! 

Ringo likes to sleep in uncomfortable places and positions. Instead of laying on this nicely placed pillow on the spacious front seat, he crawled into my purse between the seats. Of course.

One day of feasting wasn't enough for my folks. We had chicken and dumplings Monday, a shrimp smorgasbord Tuesday and delicious homemade prosciutto pizza Wednesday.  

Preppin the good stuff! Lots of mashed potatoes and homemade green bean casserole. Ok, so I burnt the topping just a little bit. 

Pretty drives to the grandparents!

Baked Brie with Cranberry Chutney on Thanksgiving. You're probably supposed to let it cool a little longer but I like the brie lava flow!

Shannon made this super cute veggie tray!

We got back just in time for the last quarter of the Texas game! Me and Ringo cheered and yelled and cried. I'm still a Longhorn fan. 

Got some fun hand me downs from my sis! Love all my new flannels. 

Stopped for Starbucks on the way to Thanksgiving #2 and reveled in some Christmas spirit!

 Caramel Apple Cheesecake. Recipe to come. It was tasty. 

 We braved Wal-Mart on Saturday to pick up some board games. My cousin and his fiance are cute. And apparently I'm their paparazzi. 

We got the tree set up before I had to return to Fort Worth- wish I could have stayed to help do all the decorating!

My sister is gorgeous and she doesn't even know it. 

So is my mom. It might be easier to tell when we've got our eyes open though...

We finally wrangled dad into a family picture. And that's all folks!

Hope y'all had a very Happy Thanksgiving week as well!
