The Weekend Diaries

I feel like I just blinked and my four day weekend is already over: but man, oh man, what a good weekend it was. Spending time with family and laying around watching TV, always equals a good time in my book. lets kick this off with the good ole Turkey day!


We kicked off the morning by drinking coffee and cooking up a storm. I had accidentally slept through my alarm, so as soon as I finished the peanut butter pie, it was a rush to get ready. In a grand total of thirty minutes, (I believe that's a record for me) I ran out the door, and headed  to my grandmothers, where we vegged out on an immense amount of Thanksgiving food. Mmmm, Yummy!

Papa, with all his grand daughters!

After spending time with our family, I decided to take the girls to see Big Hero 6. Oh. My. Word. This movie is just amazing! I can't wait until it comes out on DVD, so I can watch it again and again. For real y'all, go see it! Fair Warning though, go ahead and just bring the box of tissues. Let me start this off by saying, anyone who knows me, knows I have a very soft spot for dogs. With that being said, Pixar always has a short film before the actual film. The one for Big Hero 6 is called Feast. It's probably the best Disney Short Film I have EVER seen! I tired looking for the whole movie so you each could experience it for yourselves; However, I could only find a trailer. I guess you will just have to go see Big Hero 6 and enjoy both films. :)


After the movie we proceeded to head home and watch The Incredibles and Wreck it Ralph. Yep, it was a Disney movie marathon.  



After sleeping until 11:00 am, I woke up, jumped out of the bed, freshened up, and headed over to Bethany's. She and I spent ALL day laying around, watching Netflix, and eating way to much mac & cheese, turkey, and strawberry pretzel pie! Ahhhh, being lazy is so wonderful. 

Stuck was one of the movies that we chose to watch. It's about how orphans are being forced to live in detrimental conditions within institutions, and how adoption is their greatest form of rescue. There were scenes within this movie that transported me right back to Africa. I can say with 100% certainty there are so many children who need a parents love and protection. My emotions are still extremely raw from Africa, so this movie really hit home.  


Saturday, Jessie and I lazed around for a little while then, I decided we should put up the outside Christmas decorations. I always try to buy a new strand of lights each year, in case one happens to break. So she and I jumped in the car to go get a couple of new decorations. 


Then, I headed over to Beth's because it was time for the most important game of the whole season, Clemson VS USC. 


 My tigers played a phenomenal game and after five long years of losing against our rival team, the feeling of winning is indescribable. I'm proud of you boys! 


Sunday, after church, we all pitched in and put up the outside Christmas decorations. Remember how I said I always by an extra strand of lights? well, I was really glad I did. One of my strands of Icicle lights had burnt out. Thumbs up for thinking ahead!  

That concludes my holiday weekend. Now I'm looking forward to the Christmas parade tonight! How was your weekend? Did you do anything special? I hope each of you have a fantastic Monday.


  1. that big hero movie looked okay when i saw the trailer but you're the second person to recommend it and that it was sad - i'm a big crybaby so i know i'll need tissues!

    1. The trailer honestly does the movie no justice. I'm a huge crybaby as well, so from one crybaby to the other, tissues are a must! :)
