Let's Play Catch Up!

Hi, friends! How have your holidays been so far? I am writing this post while listening to Christmas music... this song is my yearly go-to :)

I hope your Thanksgiving was full of delicious food and family. We spent it in Houston and were so relaxed. Thursday was spent at my Aunt and Uncle's house and I finally got to meet my baby second cousin. I could eat her up!

Normally Black Friday shopping is just me and my mom, but Mike and my two sisters joined us this year. I went into it thinking someone was going to have a melt down, but we all did awesome. We hit our first store at 7:30am and didn't home until 4pm. That is called "domination".

My favorite thing I got that day was this wood block from William Sonoma. My mom has one in her kitchen and I couldn't stop obsessing over it. Next thing I know, my mom comes up to me in a store and says "Merry Christmas"! I have the best mom!

One of my favorite things was going on long walks with our dog. The weather was beautiful and our neighborhood was full of trees with their leaves changing. I was craving those walks last week. 

It's never fun leaving my Mom's house. Mike and I recapped the long weekend our whole drive home and are looking forward to our next trip.

Last week was a short and sweet one. Mike got a new job, so he was off last week before he started his new job today! I took off Thursday and Friday so we could have some time together to do whatever we wanted. It was nice doing some of the things we normally do, but at different times. We also wanted to check out some neighborhoods to get an idea of where we want to live when we get a house. I kinda felt like we were on House Hunters, minus actually going in. It was cute to hear Mike's excitement and it definitely made us think about what/where we want to live.

Thursday night we went to Wassel Fest with our friends, Bryan and Sydney. We have been wanting to go for a few years now, but could never make it. Most of the stores in downtown New Braunfels had wassel out for everyone to come by and try and vote. At the end of the night they choose a winner of who had the best. We had a blast and I loved all of the Christmas lights. I am seriously in love with this time of year.

Friday night I had my company Christmas party. It was such a fun night and one that Mike and I look forward to every year.

We topped off our weekend with the Liederkranz Christmas concert! It is an all mens German choir and Mike's Opa, Dad and Brother are all in it. We loved seeing them up there!

I hope you have had a wonderful Monday full of coffee:)
