Our Thanksgiving Weekend

Boy oh boy am I glad to have Thanksgiving over with... I could not possibly eat another food item this weekend if my life depended on it! Taylor and I had a great time visiting our families but we are also so grateful to be home and resting now. Traveling across the state (Texas-- huge) is tiring. I wanted to share a couple of highlights from the weekend!

Best Recipe: Pioneer Woman's Scrumptious Apple Pie

I made this pie with the help of my mom for Taylor's family's Thanksgiving. It was delicious and pretty easy to make! It is pretty deep, so I would recommend making it as a deep dish pie or even in a square dish.

Greatest Black Friday deal: Pottery Barn's Small Arm Comfort Glider

Taylor and I were crazy Black Friday shoppers and we hit the outlet mall around 11:30 pm on Thursday night. I was thinking how out of my mind I was being, but all in all it was not bad! Taylor dropped me off at Pottery barn at 11:35 or so (they opened at midnight) and I was 6th in line! We were in hopes of a crib-- but they did not have a single one in the store! However, Taylor came across the best deal of all!!!! He found the Comfort Arm Glider, without a slipcover, for $99.00! The chair is regularly $819.00 + $99.00 delivery from the store or catalog.... we paid $90.00 total. The chair was priced $99, then we were given 10% off for being early birds! Well worth the 10 minute drive from my parent's house and waiting in line for about 15 minutes! Needless to say-- we were pretty excited about that find and saved ourselves a big chunk of change!!!

One holiday down, one more to go! We are getting geared up for Christmas around here! Check back soon for decoration ideas, gift ideas and recipes for Christmas!
