Trey was in town this weekend for Thanksgiving. We cooked, cleaned, watched football and decorated for Christmas. It was a great weekend!

I made appetizers to take to my Aunt's. We had bacon cheeseburger bites, cream cheese sausage spirals and stuffed jalapeños.
Me, Dad, Mom and Trey
My Aunt Julie made these amazing rolls. She said they are semi-homemade. I need to find out the recipe or brand they were amazing. Just look at them.
For the main meal we had sweet potato casserole, ham, chicken and dressing, lima beans, corn casserole, deviled eggs and two different hash brown casseroles.
I had a ton of potatoes I needed to cook so I decided to make hash brown casseroles to bring. I made one traditional one and added tomatoes and bacon to one.
This Thanksgiving was the first Thanksgiving Trey got to spend with my family. I was so excited after almost 4.5 years Trey got to come! I loved getting to spend time with my family and missed the ones that were not able to come.

Last weekend Mom came and stayed with me. We stayed in on Friday night and watched the Hallmark channel. I cannot get enough of their Christmas movies. Saturday morning I got up and cooked biscuits, gravy and scrambled eggs and then we went shopping at Hobby Lobby. I could not resist the 50% off Christmas sale. Even though I am pretty sure they have that almost all of the time. Lucy got lots of attention the entire weekend. Sunday was my Mom's birthday. We did a little birthday shopping on QVC and I made lasagna and cheddar garlic cheese biscuits (the Red Lobster boxed mix - so good!). I hardly took any pictures. It was a fun relaxing weekend.

On the Sunday of Alumnae Weekend, Anna, Ashley and I went to Five for brunch. Look at all those chandeliers. I couldn't stop looking at the ceiling. I cannot wait to go back. I ordered the Five Burrito and a Bellini. Everything was good!

Life has gone crazy over here. Everything is starting to settle down. Here is what I have been up to lately in list form. I love making lists...
- My Mom was in the hospital and had surgery. She is out now and doing good! I don't know about you but when my Mama's sick my world is turned upside down.
- I have been keeping Lucy for Mom. She is a handful and a half. She may look sweet but she is a diva. She cannot stay at home alone. She whines so loud my neighbors can hear. She sounds like a child so I am pretty sure if I left her alone they would call the police thinking a human child was being abused in my house. But you cannot help but love her, she has the sweetest puppy eyes.
- This weekend I bought several items for my house. I finally found a shower curtain I liked for my bathroom. I might have went a little crazy at the mattress store and bought a king size bed for my room. For me, by myself I don't really need a bed that large but my bedroom is huge. I am not complaining I just don't know what else to put in it haha. I thought it might fill it up some but my room makes a king size bed look small...
- It is finally feeling like Fall around here. I had my first cup of the season of foamy mocha hot chocolate this weekend and have been wearing boots! Boots are my favorite.

Dancing Queen's family dinner at Glory Bound
October 4-6, 2013 was Alumnae Weekend for my sorority. It was also Homecoming for UA. It was a lot of fun getting to meet some of the girls. Anna, Perry and I went to the game but did not stay long since we were getting scorched in the sun. It was a fun weekend and it brought back many memories of the "good old days".
