Weekend Recap

Wowie!! Where did this awesome holiday weekend go!?!

Hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend with lots of loved ones!!

Wednesday night - I got off work at 1pm on Wednesday and waited till the last minute to buy the groceries I needed for my part in Thanksgiving....yup I was that person.  I first went to World Market to pick up some vanilla bean pods.  Thank goodness I did.  I bought 2 packages with 2 beans a piece for $2.59 for each package.  Looking online to buy vanilla beans, youre looking at $10.00 for 2 pods!  That's crazy!!  Second I went to Schnucks, it turned out that Schnucks (grocery store) wasn't that all busy, score!!  Back home I went to bake my booty off!  I spent about 4 hours baking that night.  

What was accomplished:
-Vanilla bean cheesecake
-Pre-made cheese danish
-Pre-made cinnamon rolls
-Brownies

Need I mention that all were HOMEMADE!!!  Lots of love and time went into those very delicious desserts!!  :)

Thursday -  Happy Thanksgiving!!  Breakfast was at my moms and dinner was at my in-laws.  If you would like more information on the meals, you can check out here.  

Friday -  I had every intention on putting up all my Christmas stuff, and boy did I!!  See, I am one of those people who like Christmas stuff up early, like before Thanksgiving.  Unfortunately, I was unable to get it up early.  But man oh man was I ever ready to get going on Friday!  I had help from my two fur-babies of course!  Smokey thought the tree was his new "toy" so the squirt bottle has been in place for the last 2 days.  He is finally getting that the tree is not his toy....bummer city for the cat.  I think the house turned out great though!!









Saturday - Spend the day shopping with my mama!!  Lunch was at El Maguey and shopping for Christmas presents.  We got so much done!  I am in no way a black friday shopper.  Those crowds and dealing with people are not my thing, plus I think it's ridiculous for stores to open on Thanksgiving day......but that's another story.  I've been really bad about meals lately...bad Jessica.  Dinner was McDonalds.....the diet starts back up on Monday, you can hold me accountable.  Promise!  Andy and his dad were getting measurements and prices to get our basement finished.  I am looking forward to having it finished.  He has always wanted his own "Man Cave" and I am ready for him to get this done.  Hopefully we can get this started and going soon.  

Sunday -  Apparently Sunday turned into clean out your basement day and throw crap away you don't use.  And you know what, I didn't mind one bit.  It felt good to get rid of the crap we never use or have any use for.  If I haven't seen or used it in the past year, its gone.  Buy-bye now!  Dinner was with my family to Pizza Street.  Good times as usual and we got to see my brother and his kids, Jackson and Claire.  

I will leave you on this Sunday night with 2 more photos of those cute animals!  :) 

Keeley was watching over me while I typed out my blog for today!

Mokes is cuddling by the Christmas tree.  He's so cute!


The countdown for the next weekend begins now; 5 days! 

Can you believe it will be December in 5 days!?!!
