I prefer the weeeekends


(Will Ferrell anyone?)


This weekend was amazing. Jon and I went to my parents lakehouse for 2 nights with the fam. You may be asking what the heck do you do at a lakehouse during the wintertime but that's why it was so fun...we relaxed! We watched lots of football, played games, shopped the Wal Mart in town and my sisters and I did lots of crafts (I can't share...the gifts may be for you!). James had a friend with him and our family friends who have a house a few minutes away hung out with us. The game of the weekend was Loaded Questions. If you're a personal friend of mine, you've probably played! One person asks a question, "what was your favorite thing about Thanksgiving", "if you could name your own professional team, what would it be?", etc. Everyone else answers on a piece of paper and passes their answer to the question-askers right. That person reads the answers and the question-asker guesses who said what. It is pee-your-pants funny. 

Here are some shots from the weekend


The boys digging a giant hole (recliners and all!)


Athena (my fur-niece) the model dog


There was a lot of this this weekend. Ernie seriously never stops!


Tired boy...




War Eagle!! My dad's bff is Lutzenkirchen's (#43) dad and we grew up with their family. Despite the loss, go Auburn! My parents and sister even went to the National Championship last year :-)


The burn ban is FINALLY lifted! yay! Jon and the boys made an awesome fire and we cozied up to make smores. Jon has an obsession with coconut marshmallows that I am just now finding out about! They look gross to me.


Yesterday we got home in the early afternoon and we spent the rest of the day at the gym, running a few errands and watching Tommy Boy (which I had never seen!). It was a cute movie. So sad that Chris Farley died so early.

Today we are both back at work and it is HARD getting back into the swing of things! I am still stuck in holiday mode (and it doesn't make it any easier that Christmas music is on 3 Austin stations!). 


Are you still recovering from the holiday weekend? Did you do any Black Friday shopping (or maybe Cyber Monday today??)

That's so exciting about the burn ban! Justin and I just bought firewood yesterday so we can finally use our fire pit that we got for our wedding. I <3 the lake house. :)

1) I love my lakehouse during winter. I almost like it more when its cooler because it's so nice to relax in sweats and light a fire.

2) CUTE auburn gear... love that you all support us all the way in TX!

3) How have you not seen Tommy Boy before? It's one of my top 5 fav movies!

I absolutely love these pics! It's so fun to see Ernie playing with your family pup! Love that you guys have a lakehouse to go explore in and that it's nice and local :) My parents have something similar but it's far away and we can never go :( So glad to hear you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! xoxoxo

I just gasped aloud when I saw you in the Auburn shirt. IT'S LIKE I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU.

But I still love you. Somehow. ;)

Sounds like a super-fun weekend with the fam! Watching football and relaxing are a few of my favorite Thanksgiving activities!
Cute pups!

Today was so hard going back to work! I had a desperate moment mid afternoon where I had to walk over to the classroom sink and splash water on my face! I was literally falling asleep while cutting out leaves...still in a Thanksgiving food coma I guess! Looks like you had a wonderful weekend! I used to love going to MIchigan during the winters to just bundle up inside and relax by a fire!
