Thanksgiving: Instagram Edition

I accumulated all these cute Instagram pictures!  I had an absolutely fantastic break and the pictures, I think, show just how much fun I had!
They’re kinda out of order, but I think that just adds to the spontaneity of the post 😉
Packing.  I really tried not to overpack.  Of course, I overpacked.  (Sweaters?  Really, what was I thinking??? It was 80 degrees the whole time)

It’s a mom + sisters tradition to go to a tea room the day before Thanksgiving.  Sugar coma before the Turkey coma!

Obviously, I did not turn down a manicure with my mom.  Even if it meant waking up early on the first day home.

So much Bang Bang.  We’re kind of obsessed.  And $5 on Wednesdays!!!  

Carrot Cake pops. (Would you say Carrot Cake Cake Pops???)  So delicious, and the perfect little take-home for guests.
Eating outside by candles and strings of light is kind of the most perfect setting.
My high school rowing coach’s wife had a baby!  A beautiful baby boy.

Soccer Mom and I took advantage of “Small Business Saturday” to pop into every boutique in South Tampa.

Cut out cookies are a necessity.

Sporty Sister went to a deb ball… how gorgeous is she???

Friday afternoon lunch at J. Alexanders… Chips & Salsa all day, every day.

Christmas Card pictures were taken.

Molly the dolly.  Complete with stiches.  “Ouila! My Scar!”

Chocolate chip cookies.

Catching up on some perfectly-relevant Time magazine articles.

J. Alexanders is my family's favorite restaurant, we go every sunday after church! And most of the time we are too full to eat anything after all the chips and salsa – I had no idea they had one in Florida!
