Weekend Wrap Up: Stuffed

It's safe to say I am officially in a turkey coma and stuffed from 3 1/2(!) Thanksgivings!
(#1 being our Mini Thanksgiving)
More on each of those shortly.

Our weekend really started on Wednesday and I think that all weekends should start on Wednesday evenings.
 My aunts came to town on Wednesday night and we were able to eat dinner and spend time with them. 

On Thursday we had lunch at Huber's Orchard and it was very, very yummy (and Thanksgiving #2).
Friday we got up bright and early and hit the stores!
We managed to spend 3 hours in Kohls.
Yes, 3 hours.
We then hit up Target and PetSmart and it is safe to say we all marked quite a few items off our Christmas lists.
I know for a fact that Santa picked up a few things for Floyd.
Did you brave the madness of Black Friday?

On Saturday it was time for Mister's family Thanksgiving (#3).
We celebrated at his parent's house and ate like kings once again.
 I made my Derby Pie to take.
 I used a combination of this recipe and this one.
I even made my own pie crust (using this recipe).
The Mister's granny said it was very good and asked to take a piece home.
That wonderful lady has baked some goodness in her life so I trust her judgement.
 Saturday night was spent with some good friends munching on sushi and wine.

Sunday we had Thanksgiving leftovers (#1/2) at the Mister's house and they were just as delicious the second time around.
And now I feel as though I need to run a marathon. 
And take a nap.
Who knew eating and spending time with friends and family could be so exhausting?

Who is partaking in Cyber Monday craziness?
I am planning on exercising my Amazon prime membership to the fullest today and possibly every day until Christmas.
Any good deals you've spotted online that I should know about?
I do know that elf is having get 50% off when you spend $25 with coupon code 50WIDE 11/25-11/27! I am a firm believer that if you are shopping for others, you definitely deserve a little something for yourself!
Speaking of elf, I just picked up this lip gloss stick (in sangria starters) and I am obsessed with it!  It is fun apply (like a big crayon) and the perfect fall color.  I also grabbed their mineral primer on Friday from Target and can't believe I have been living this long without it. 

Linking up with Sami Dana and Leeann.

I, too, believe all weekends should start on Wednesday evening.

I'm in agreement with you.... 4 day weekends every week! Sounds and looks like y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends. It's safe to say I can go a few more weeks without touching turkey! =) Have a great Monday! Kisses to Mr Floyd!

Way to make your own pie crust!! I made my first pumpkin pie...but cheated and used store bought crust.

Lindsey said...

Every weekend should be a 4 day weekend! I'm so impressed you made your own pie crust. That is an art!

Kristen said...

We definitely need more 4 day weekends! :)

And we had 3 full Thanksgiving meals as well. I would definitely be hitting up some exercise if I weren't sick. :(
