Last Week

November 27, 2012

I’ve been gone for quite some time!

I last left you with a vague “surprise” comment. Nick and I had originally planned to head to SC the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, but we were actually able to go down the Saturday before Thanksgiving and surprise his mom! I didn’t want to post it here just in case she saw it, but many of you knew of our travel plans through Twitter and Instagram.

The drive took 14 hours and was the first time that our dog Anabelle has taken a road trip and also the first time she has met our families! Of course this made for an interesting trip.

Photo heavy post ahead!

We left Houston just as the sun was coming up!


My hubby is pretty adorable, huh?


Anabelle wanted to ride up front with me!

Once we got to SC, it was a week full of yummy food, hanging out with our families and friends, and shopping!

My mom pulled out a bunch of old pictures to look through. I couldn’t believe how much I’ve changed…

I guess I was like 14 or so here? I don’t even look the same!


My sister and I. I was probably about 8 or so.

I was finally able to see some of my sorority sisters and I even got to meet my great-grand little! Even though she is like a foot taller than me and had to crouch for our picture.

I love you grand!



Then Thanksgiving came and I helped my mom in the kitchen. I love making her dressing.

All the yummy food!

After our tummies were full, my dad, Nick and I all ventured out to find my parents a tv. We had luck at Target, and were in and out in 30 minutes! That’s impressive for Black Friday…

More food….

and shopping…

All in all, it was great being back in South Carolina. I can’t tell you how nice it was to go home for the first time in 9 months.

Did you have a good Thanksgiving? Did you score any great Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals? Tell me something fun!
