Thanksgiving 2017

So thankful. 

Thankful for family and being able to spend time with them. 

We hosted a small thanksgiving at our house this year and we were blessed that both of babygirls grandmas were present. Along with her uncle and her papa, and both her parents! 

Usually D is away this time of year, so it was special that we were able to have thanksgiving with him. And in our home ❤

Traditionally my family doesn’t have a traditional thanksgiving holiday. I don’t know how to make collard greens or candied yams, we don’t usually have sweet potato pie or green bean casserole. But we did have an amazing non traditional spread this year, put together by 3 moms, we served:

Chicken wings

Grilled Salmon

Roasted carrots and butternut squash

Parmesan roasted broccoli

Mac and cheese

Rice and beans

Candied yams

Stuffing/dressing
Carrot cake

Chocolate peanut butter Reese’s Cake


With so much food, and after prepping all day we basically fell into a food coma at like 6pm. Super relaxing to be in our home and be able to just chill out and do nothing. 

But we did other fun things after Thanksgiving, like try on my wedding dress (wooooohooooo), watch movies on the couch, watch our alma mater play at Disney’s Wide Worlf of Sports and just spend time together. 

We also spent one of our vacation days at Disney! Who doesn’t love the most magical place on Earth? 

I’m so excited that I finally got the rose gold mickey wars! I wore them alllllll day at the park.
