It's that time of year again!
My favorite holiday season is upon us with glittering lights and carefully decorated homes. 
We'll be heading back home tonight after an extended weekend for Thanksgiving. I hope to put most of our decorations up today and tomorrow. 

Our black friday ended up not turning out at we expected but did spend lots of time eating.
The time with our family was wonderful but it's back to reality as I have work and Adam takes his exams.
Have a lovely Sunday evening, I'll talk to you soon!

As per every year since I can remember my family has had the tradition of watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade together. One day we'll spend our turkey day in the city to celebrate!
I most look forward to The Rockettes as I always dreamed of being one of those long legged ladies and the Broadway plays.
Having found these photos online I thought I would share them with you.

Have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving!
Eat well, I love you all.

In taking a slight break from cleaning the house I thought I would post that we have an exciting weekend ahead of us.
My dearest friend Holli is visiting us this weekend! As Adam is preparing for his exams, which take place in a few weeks, us girls will be out shopping and getting coffee. 
Though I do have some friends here it's always so lovely to have someone near who has known you for over 10 years. Through breakups, moves and bad clothing choices she's always been there.
With that said I'm off to dust the furniture. 
Have a fantastic Friday evening....I'll talk to you soon!

It's the creme de la perfect.
Though some may consider the color beige boring, I on the other hand embrace it. There's nothing more chic than a woman who doesn't have to be gaudy and over the top to show her beauty. Case in point this lovely lady...

Beautifully Elegant

Happy weekend to you! Aren't these days so precious? The mornings when you don't have to set an alarm and when the sun rises you don't shudder at the thought of being at work in an hour is like the sound of a choir of angels. {Insert hallelujah chorus now}
Although this morning may not have been the most lazy as some past ones have been, we've been busy.
As stated in my last post my amazing hubby took the MPRE this morning. (Multi-State Professional Responsibility Exam) While he was hard at work my parents and I grabbed a bite to eat at Perkins for a delicious breakfast! My dad has a special place in his heart for breakfast joints like Perkins because he said they remind him of his days on the road with my Uncle Jon.
Pancakes and biscuit quiches filled our bellies when it was time to wrap up and pick my test taking man up. I must insert that when my parents come in town all we do is shop and I love every bit of it! We went to two malls and all ended the day with a new pair of shoes :) 
Every store was filled with people shopping for their holiday presents bundled up in coats and scarves. Memphis has really been hit with a cold front with a temperature tonight in the 20's I believe. Quite mind boggling as we've gone from 90 degrees a few weeks ago to below freezing temps but I do like it cold.
Of course there was Starbucks and cupcakes because it's who we are and what we do. Amen!
We ended the night with our favorite Memphis BBQ, Central, and are now back at the house watching the TIVO'd Bama vs. LSU game. Geaux Tigers!!
I'm going to hop into a hot shower as my fingers and toes feel like ice cubes but I just wanted to post an update from my dads new iPad. Not sure how the drool from my mouth hasn't puddled on the screen. Okay so maybe that was t.m.i. but I'm head over heels for this little machine. Christmas present anyone? Hint hint?
Love love love...

Oh what a boring web we weave....
Not sure if that makes sense, but all of that to say nothing much is going on. It has been particularly cold and in some situations have had the opportunity to wear boots!
Last weekend was spent back home with our families celebrating my mother in law, Barbara's birthday! (Happy belated you lovely lady!) We ate Cracker Barrell, drank pumpkin spiced lattes, went to a pumpkin fest, exchanged music galore and ate more. Busy bees I tell ya.

Tomorrow my parents will be visiting us for the weekend. I'm so very giddy, I absolutely love when they come. Reasons to deep clean and light candles always gives a pep to my step. Now we must figure out what to do.... We keep raving about our favorite cupcake place which we want to take them to and treat them to goodies. Abstaining from those yummy happiness filled confections is hard, it's a good thing I won't have to wait much longer! 
On top of their visit Adam will be taking the MPRE. A long test that is a part of the bar which he can take early on dealing with ethics and professional responsibility. He's been studying like a mad man for hours on end every day for the past month. Pray that he retains all of the knowledge he's gained and is confident in his choices. I love this man so much and know that he will do amazingly! 

Being the lazy bones that I am, this blanket and movie are beckoning me. Have a splendid evening...I hope to catch you soon.
