Happy Thanksgiving week! One thing I am certainly thankful for is the short week and a long weekend ahead filled with lots of delicious food and fun with family.
This weekend was a lot of fun! I went to a painting and wine (water for me!) evening with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law at a studio where my sister-in-law has her personal training space. We painted a few festive pumpkins and a pumpkin spice latte. It was so much fun and I really enjoyed the how casual it was, but how many tips and tricks we learned. I really enjoy painting and have take a few classes in the past and I can't wait to try another one of these workshops!
My finished product:
On Saturday morning we bundled up because it was under 30 degrees in Green Bay and we were headed to the Holiday Parade! Kellen absolutely loved it, but we all got a bit chilly by the end of the parade and needed to sip hot chocolate. Kellen was ready to throw in the towel and go home until Santa turned the corner! He was so excited he needed to do a two handed wave and was thrilled when Santa waved back! I have a feeling that this Holiday is going to be a lot of fun!
After the parade we went out for lunch before heading home to relax for the rest of the day. I met up with my sister and her boyfriend to go see the new Hunger Games movie later in the evening. I really enjoyed it!
On Sunday, Kellen and I ran to the store before heading to my parents in the late afternoon for the Packer game. I made a crockpot apple crisp and someone was pretty excited for it to be done from the moment I put the lid on the crockpot!
We were all so excited about the Packer victory and am hoping we can keep it up on Thursday!
This week I am looking forward the Turkey Day. My family from Chicago will be in town and Ron's parents will also be coming to celebrate with us and I am so excited. A few of my cousins are going to the game to see the Packers and Brett Favre. It should be a pretty awesome night! We are also planning to go the the Festival of Lights on Friday, Ron's family is coming for dinner on Saturday and we are putting up our tree on Sunday! It is going to be a fun weekend!
I hope you all have an amazing week!
