Weekending | Thanksgiving Edition

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! 
via

Thanksgiving//

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//

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! 
ASOS: 30% off everything - code: BLESSED
H&M - Up to 30% off and free shipping + 40% off sale items code: 4040 for sale items
Macy's - 60% off women's clothing
Nordstrom - up to 50% off top brands and of course always free shipping! 
Victoria Secret - Free tote with a $65 purchase (non-clearance items) code: CYBER65

How was your Thanksgiving? Will you be shopping any Cyber Monday sales? Link up with me and Meghan to share!

  18. It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, and all of that food sounds and looks so amazing! I wish that we could've gone to the movies at least once over the weekend, but there wasn't a theater close to us. Those seats in that theater, I don't know how you didn't fall asleep during the movie!

  32. Your photos are marvelous and the food looked scrumptious!! Love the family photos!
    We have a local movie theater here that had a reno like that with the same kind of seats, nice they didn't raise your prices!
    Ironically, I am watching The Today Show and they were just talking about "Creed" as I was reading this! Tamron Hall said Sylvester Stallone should win an Oscar, wonder what you think? Also, they said the five minute fight scene was filmed in ONE TAKE!
    I might have to see this!

  59. Everything looks so great!! I've heard really good things about Creed, but I haven't seen the other Rocky movies, so a lot of it might be lost on me. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  60. That theater looks awesome! There are a few in this area like that, but I haven't been. Love that you got a lot of family time. It's the best.
    And yes to sushi being comfort food. It's definitely one of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Your thanksgiving dinner with family sounds amazing and the turkey looks huge. Perfect for lots of leftovers and to recreate different recipes. I'd love to try the sushi at your favorite place. What's your favorite roll? I always go for the volcano rolls and switch up the rest.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I feel so behind on holiday cards! You're the second person I've read about who's gotten out their cards. We just got ours taken Saturday and finalized Sunday. We just ordered ours. I can't wait to see them! I'm sure they'll beautiful!

    Your thanksgiving is definitely one I'm envious of. Sushi, turkey quesdillas and everything in the pictures? I need that in my life. Kyle and I almost considered eating chinese food for Thanksgiving just to change things up.

    I did so much shopping on Black Friday, and I'm checking out places today for finishing up some Christmas shopping, thank god for sales because I spent a good chunk of money already.
