Happy Monday Friends!

I hope everyone had fabulous weekends full of food, family and fun 🙂

I’m linking up with Blovedboston today for a little over view of my thanksgiving weekend.

But first since it’s Cyber Monday and all the deals from Black Friday weekend are still going strong, check out my Gifts under $50  for the traveler/back packer in your life if you missed it.


My thanksgiving weekend started off with making pies with some of the women in my family for the next day. This was the first time I was able to join in and I learned a lot about how my grandmother’s family makes their delicious pies. I definitely got some lessons in crust making, although I’m still going to need some practice lol.

I loved all the snapchat filters 😉


Is it really thanksgiving if you don’t catch a Friends’ thanksgiving episode?! I was watching while putting out the snacks and making my fall sangria.


I made this fall sangria a few weeks ago for a friend’s housewarming party and it turned out even better the second time. It’s a cinnamon whiskey flavor sangria, I know caramel flavored sangria is popular but I’m not a fan of vodka.


Turkey dinner is my favorite part of the day but I was too busy consuming it and watching football to take any pictures of our feast lol. However since I’m so dessert inclined, especially on this blog, I remembered to take a picture of my lovely pies all mixed together with ice cream. #Heaven #PumpkinPie #ChocolateBurbonPecanPie


A few of my beautiful cousins all who got the memo to wear sweater dresses and leggings. Just kidding! We didn’t plan this but its on trend right?! img_1679

It’s hard to see but my cousin had this hilarious turkey head piece that got passed around for pictures lol. Dress is sold out. Boots similar here.

The rest of my weekend was full of friends gathering, wine, snuggling new babies, movies (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!! #Worthit), and football.


My mom is so cute with her Patriots m&m’s lol

Happy Cyber Monday friends, it’s the best Monday of the year!!
