Thanksgiving 2012

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I had a lot of school work that I should have done but decided to rest + spend time with family instead : ) So now I am frantically finishing some last minute projects/papers that are due this week and next. I always hate the weeks right after Thanksgiving...

Anyway, here are some pictures from my wonderful week off!

On Wednesday Adam and I had Thanksgiving with his dad's family. We don't get to see them often so it was nice to catch up, share some of our wedding plans, and meet some new babies!

On Thursday we had Thanksgiving with my dad's family : ) Adam's parents joined us which was so great!!

Me and the cutest girl EVER!

 All the Benson girls!

My brother & Carolyne-Grace {Can you say TWINS?!}

Thursday night my mom and I went Black Friday shopping! Toys-R-Us opened at 8pm so we headed there first and got some great things for Caroylne-Grace. My brother didn't want to go everywhere with us so he followed us to Toys-R-Us so he could get some things for CG too but when he saw the line to just get in the store he left; I don't think he knew just how crazy it would be haha!! Anyway.. after Toys-R-Us we headed to Wal-Mart which wasn't as bad as it has been in years past. We ended up leaving with only 2 candles and some mittens for

This was my FAVORITE thing we got CG.. I literally cannot wait to play with it with her haha! I had one similar when I was younger and I always loved setting it up and playing with it!
 We finally got home around 2am and were back up at 5am to get to Ashley Furniture. The first 50 people in line received $100 gift cards. We got there around 5:30am and had to wait until 7am for them to open, but we got our gift cards! And we also got this baby...

Adam + I's first big purchase for our house!!
We have been looking at couches + love seats for quite some time but wanted to wait until Black Friday to get a good deal. We had it narrowed down to two different ones and we were going to purchase whichever one was cheaper on BF. But when I walked in and saw this new sectional they had just put on the floor the night before I knew it was "the one". Even though Adam wasn't there to give his opinions I knew he would like it : )

After purchasing our sectional my mom and I headed to Barnes & Noble to snag up some $59 Nooks! I got one and am so excited to start using it. I am a huge reader and have always been against Nooks/Kindles because I prefer actual books, but with it being on sale for $59 I couldn't resist!

We finally headed home in time to get ready and head to our final Thanksgiving lunch with my mom's family. I am blessed with TONS of family, but goodness I am still exhausted!

Saturday we were up bright and early for the UGA vs. GT game. Clean old fashioned HATE as they call it! My mama is a Tech fan, but my daddy, brother & I are die hard UGA fans.. if you haven't noticed ; )

It was freezing but it was such a great game I didn't care!
Our Dawgies are ONE game away from the Nat'l Championship! Holy Crap.
We are headed to Atlanta this weekend for the SEC Championship against Alabama & the winner of that game plays Notre Dame in the Natty!!

I hope your Thanksgiving was as wonderful as mine.
Can't believe Christmas is less than a month away!!



  1. sounds like you had an awesome break!! I've been thinking about getting a nook/kindle but, like you, I love the feeling (and smell) or the actual book. I still haven't decided!! That couch sectional is gorgeous as well! Have y'all found a house yet?

  2. Go Dawgs! :) Jealous of your couch and Nook.. haha

  3. Looks like you had such a nice Thanksgiving. I also just made my first big apartment purchase at Ashley Furniture, and I recently became a Nook reader too! Hope you love both :)

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only blogger crazy enough to go out on black friday!!! 70$ boots for 20$ at kohls, I'll take it! Also, I got the 59$ nook for my mom :) I am kind of against them too but I use mine on vacation because it is better for packing :) Also, love that sectional, looks super comfy!!

  5. well look at all of your sweet deals you got on Black Friday!!! Love the couch! and you will absolutely love your nook! I am a huge reader too, and always loved the feel of a book... (and the smell) lol but I got a kindle last year and it's so convenient!

  6. Love the couch! What a great purchase, along with those Barbie goodies too :) I have a Kindle and love it, but agree, I still love books. Glad you got some good deals!

  7. That sectional looks pretty comfy!! I have a kindle and I still alternate between reading on that and reading an actual book. :)

  8. I'm rooting for Georgia against Alabama...I'd like to see a national championship go somewhere other than that state.

  9. is your top from the gap? i love it

  10. cute pics! i'm a new GFC follower :)
