Thanksgiving weekend recap...

It was around 2pm on Wednesday when my mom called me.... Little background info: the whole week before, I had been asking what I am suppose to bring to my grandma's for Thanksgiving and I never got an answer. So here we are, the day before Thanksgiving and I am just now being told that I have to make a dessert. Wonderful! I have to figure out something to make AND go to the store for the ingredients. But what better place to turn to then Pinterest for inspiration!

My completed pie. Sorry for the glare, the plastic top was on it (I forgot to take a picture before we left the house).
And yes, that is the aluminum pan the pie crust comes it. I realized after I left the store that I didn't have a pie plate.

PB pie = DELICIOUS!!! The recipe calls for a whole tub of whipped cream but I only added 3/4 of it and I think next time I make it, I'll add even less. I'm tempted to make one just for B and I but I know it would be a horrible idea unless I want to buy all new pants!

Now, if you ask Beau if he wants a boy or girl when we have kids, he'll say a boy but I think this picture says otherwise...

I wish I had my real camera instead of just the handy dandy iPhone

I had so much to eat (then again who doesn't on Thanksgiving), I was pretty much in a food coma all night! Beau even went to bed at 8:30pm because he was so stuffed!

I think you know by now that I had been waiting and waiting for Friday the 25th so I'd be able to decorate for Christmas. Well, the day came and I was in full Christmas mode! I even ventured out to Target for some Black Friday sales!

I would like to state that only about $50 of this order was mine.

Beau, Sammy, Bow, and my stockings hung by the (crappy) fireplace

Our tree... This is the first year we are using a fake tree. Kind of sad but it will be SO much easier.
I think I'll add another string or two of lights :-)

Just a few more things to do around the house and we will be ready for Santa! I also got our Christmas cards ordered last night. Once I get them and send them out, I'll post a picture.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and if you didn't get a chance to read my Wish {out loud} post yesterday, you can check it out here!
