Weekend Highlights

Another weekend come and gone, but at least Thanksgiving is coming in just a few days!!

This weekend's highlights included:

~Friday night in with MG, pizza and a movie 

~Saturday morning installation of our new stairway carpet runner. I'm in love!
And now Cooper can go down the stairs again without falling!! Byebye Cooper's baby gate!
~Shopping at the mall and getting a new jacket at Macy's $30 off, and with gift cards!
It's a little longer in the back so that your back doesn't get cold when you sit down!
~Dinner and a movie double date to see Interstellar (really good!) and then super yummy Mexican food for dinner afterwards (where we all analyzed the movie since it was so complex)

~Sunday errands: getting food and other prep so we can host Thanksgiving for both sets of our parents this week (gonna maybe try two new appetizers too!)

~Shopping at Home Goods and World Market for holiday decor!
Our front door is ready for the holidays at least! :)
~Bought Cooper a mini stocking for Christmas (still need to get us some but at least Coop is covered haha)

~Started addressing some Christmas cards

~Downloaded two new books on my Kindle (that ended up being free) since the book Im reading right now is super slow and I'm bored with it.

~Got in some good cuddles with this guy:

~Discovered the most yummy seasonal beer at the store (pick some up for your Thanksgiving get-together! It's delicious):

~MG brought these yummies home as a surprise after being out watching the Eagles game with his friends
Best Husband Award! :)
~Watched the 3rd episode of Newsroom this season. So bummed this show is almost over!

~Woke up to mid-60 degree temps and a forecast of 75 for the high today. It's the last week of November *(but I'm not complaining!) :)

And now it's time to make it through the next few days before we can get to Thanksgiving!
