Weekend Update

Thanksgiving came and went way too fast! Yesterday I had the regular Monday Blues plus a heaping dose of post holiday vacation blues on top. Not fun but on the bright side, we are just a few short weeks from Christmas and that means more family time! Here's a sneak peek of what our Thanksgiving looked like this year. It was low key but very restful. I tried to take a break from blogging and social media. I can't say that I was 100% successful but I definitely scaled back! 

First things first...Lucky published another one of my articles. Did you see Wednesday's post? I'd love for you to click over to the article on Lucky and vote for it. The more votes the better! 
Please and thank you! :)

Thursday we had a delicious Thanksgiving meal. I refrained from taking any pictures (shocking, I know) so as to really take it all in and enjoy spending time with the fam. 

Friday we relaxed around the house, hung out in our PJ's and noshed on left overs. It was glorious! No hairspray, no make up, no jewels...just hanging out comfortably. You can't buy days like this but if you could, you better believe I would spend every last dime on them! 

Saturday my mom boiled some shrimp to make oyster and shrimp stew. The Husband had fun with the new camera and snapped a few pics of the before and after boiling...

The weather was absolutely beautiful! 

Saturday night we went to an oyster roast with family and then out for drinks. 
The perfect ending to a great weekend. I had the pomegranate margarita, a new favorite!

Sunday we took a few more pics with the new camera and then made our way back to Atlanta. 
Just before we left, my mom picked this orange from their orange tree. She and my Dad worked so hard on their orange tree this year and it certainly paid off. This was one delicious orange!

And we took one last picture! Actually, we took a lot but I'm gonna save a few for future posts...

There you have it, a laid back coastal Thanksgiving!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well. 
I guess it's time to start decorating from Christmas! Here's wishing you a great week!
