The Weekend / Thanksgiving 2014

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving around here. We ate way too much, enjoyed time with friends, facetimed with family and just soaked in the day. It was great!

This was my first time hosting Thanksgiving and making the meal all by myself. I cannot tell you how relieved I was that it all turned out edible! That deserves a round of applause. Here are the recipes I used and I would recommend each one... Dressing, Macaroni and Cheese, Mashed Potato Casserole (my favorite!), Roast Chicken, Green Bean Casserole (recipe to come!), Apple Crisp and Sour Cream Pound Cake with Cinnamon Glaze. We even squeezed in the parade (a must) and ended the night with some board games.

 My chicken...and no fire this time!

A huge plate of leftovers one day...leftovers are just the greatest.

The rest of the weekend was pretty relaxing and restful. Saturday, Robert had a game and he played so, so well. I am so very proud of that man. After the game we enjoyed dinner with friends at a cozy and delicious Italian restaurant.

Sunday we relaxed all day and stayed is cold, cold here! And we got hooked on the Amazing Race. Such a good show! Robert and I are determined we will be contestants one day:)

 Our view when we woke up Sunday morning.

Now it is time to fully get in the Christmas spirit, as if I wasn't enough already. I think tonight is the night to snuggle by the tree and watch Christmas Vacation, possibly my favorite!

How was your weekend?? And what Christmas movies are on your list?? I would love to know!

    Secondly, my friend and I are determined to be on The Amazing Race. We will each watch it from our own homes and text each other during asking "Which one of us would do this challenge" and/or "which challenge are we going to do". It's fun!

    And finally, my favorite Christmas movies are: Christmas vacation, A Christmas Story, Elf, and Scrooged.
