Scenes From Our Weekend

Nov 26, 2012

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I know we certainly did.  Although I must say I ate and drank way too much all weekend.  Back to reality today and back to the gym for shizzle.  

I have to brag for a minute because my husband cooks the most perfect beautiful turkey ever.  He is so good at it.  I don’t even love turkey but I love his.  He takes it very seriously and brines it for two days and then stuffs it full of veggies and herbs.  It is mouth wateringly good!


We tried to snap a family picture which is always difficult.  I think Sterling does this on purpose when the camera comes out so we can’t get a good picture.  He cried  the whole time.

I did think this one with our furbaby was pretty funny!

Here is my Thanksgiving Outfit:

{Theory Blouse, JBrand Bourbon Jeans, JCrew Necklace (old)}

I found the cutest pair of slippers for Sterling during Black Friday sales.  They came in several different options but he loved the alligator ones. They are the softest things ever!  They were supposed to be a Christmas gift but I am a sucker and gave them to him early.  He has worn them everyday since!

{Hatley Alligator Slippers}

We started decorating our house for Christmas.  I always start the day after Thanksgiving, I like to enjoy my decorations as long as I can! 

This year is especially fun decorating because Sterling is so into it.  He has loved getting all the decorations out and helping me put them up!

Saturday I had a fun night with these pretty ladies at Pearlz in West Ashley.

I rocked a blouse my sister in law shared with me that came from Forever 21.  It was $19 ladies!! Doesn’t it look just like Milly?  I could not find it online but found mine in the store on King Street.

Thanks to Matt I discovered the most amazing ginger ale ever.  Now I normally don’t drink soft drinks but this ginger ale is freaking amazing.  I drank two this weekend.  Unheard of normally.  It is made with fresh ginger and not sweet at all.  Perfectly carbonated.  We found it in the chilled section at the Piggly Wiggly.  You must try it!!

 I found a new iphone app I am obsessed with called “PocketBooth”.  It is like a photo booth on your iphone.  We used it last night and had so much fun with it!

Alright, that’s all I have today!  Off to the gym to work off all the crap I ate this week!

  22. When hermes handbags online comes to fashion, most women will do something and everything that they can so as to look their greatest. Though louis vuitton wallets are extremely high-priced, most women actually discover a technique to purchase their own cheap omega watches. This has pressured them to look for discounted charges whenever they're shopping for these cheap christmas gifts. The most important thing is the fact that they've purchased authentic women rolex watches.
