Well hello there friends!! It's always hard to get going on a Monday after a holiday - especially one that involved lots of relaxing, eating & indulging in all things holiday!! We managed to squeeze in quite a bit in the few days off we had - here's what we got up to!
As to be expected we ate a lot this weekend! The turkey was cooked to perfection and the apps that I mentioned last week were a huge hit! My sister outdid herself with a beautiful tablescape and food that was amazing!
But of course we couldn't just stop with Thanksgiving food. Although I wish I snapped a picture of my BIL making good use of the turkey leftovers and made some Turkey Quesadillas! We had lots of comfort food and if you don't consider sushi to be a comfort food, then you just haven't eaten at our favorite place!!
We watched a ton of movies this weekend - I feel less guilty when I know I've gotten so much off my to-do list!! Our favorite of the weekend was Creed. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was really well done! Fun fact - I'm obsessed with all the Rocky movies - especially IV! It also didn't hurt that we watched the movie in the newly renovated Fenway Theater and the best part is the ticket prices were still at the as pre-renovation! Honorable mention goes to Self/less with Ryan Reynolds. It had similarities to a few other science fiction movies, but I liked that it steered clear of the science portion and dealt with the story more.
We got it done//
I was so happy to put away all things Fall and get into the holiday spirit!! We wrapped, put up our decor & even managed to send out our Holiday Cards! I'll be sharing them this week! I did most of my shopping online with the exception of Friday afternoon - but I was happy the outdoor mall wasn't packed! I scooped this fun plaid top from Express for myself, but the rest of my shopping was done on the computer!! And I have to tell you - shopping online is the best!
Cyber Monday Sales
If you aren't done with all your shopping then today is the perfect day to take advantage of all those extra deals! There are a few places that increased their online savings - including Bauble Bar (it was 30% on Friday & it's 35% today until 12/1) and I think I might snag some gift sets for friends, but also this bracelet for myself! Here's where I'll be shopping!
