Last week was crazy busy and left me with no time to blog at all. So today I'm sharing about our Thanksgiving! 

 I posted this picture on Instagram on the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving. I was really excited to make 4 strawberry pies. I got the recipe from my good friend, Rachel. I had Christmas music going and was working away in our tiny kitchen.

Unfortunately, they didn't turn out right and I was pretty bummed, but there were PLENTY of other desserts to make up for it lol.

I got off early on Wednesday and had to make some pictures for a friend's family, and Matthew headed on to Murfreesboro. I got there in time to make it to church. We stayed at Matthew's parents and his two brothers (and sister-in-law) were home, too! So fun all being together again.

We have two places to be on Thanksgiving day and one place to be the day after Thanksgiving. I would say we are pretty lucky, only having three places to go. We know people that have 3+ places to go. 

We had lunch with Matthew's family on Thanksgiving Day, and everything was delicious!
Here's the dessert table...SO many good things!
 Matthew's dad put these centerpieces together! I loved them!!

Then we went to my parents house for dinner later that day and ate more delicious food!!!! It's always so good to see all of both of our families!

And of course we had to take some pictures! The weather was so warm and it felt great!!

This might be my new favorite picture of all of us! I just love my sweet sisters.

Friday morning we woke up and had breakfast with Matthew's family and then headed to my mema's house for Thanksgiving lunch! We helped her decorate the "grandchildren's Christmas Tree" that we always do every year at Thanksgiving. 

Another successful Thanksgiving with my best friend, except this year I didn't have to tell him bye at the end of the day. Absolute perfection!
First married holiday in the books, and now we're ready for Christmas! 


  1. I'm sorry your pies didn't turn out!! That's so disappointing! They look delicious at least :) Looks like y'all had a great first Thanksgiving together and with all your families!

  2. Looks like your had a lovely holiday! Your outfit was so cute :)

  3. Glad you had such a great Thanksgiving! I love that pine cone/mason jar centerpiece and the photo of you & your sisters :) You're right - it's so fun being married and going home together on the holidays instead of your separate ways!

  4. You and your sisters are SO cute!!! I'm sorry the pies didn't turn out how you wanted - but they still looked delicious!! ;)

  5. You and your oldest sister look so much alike! My sister and I look nothing alike but apparently we sound the exact same, so we can trick people on the phone haha!
    Looks like your first Thanksgiving was fantastic!
