Thanksgiving Recap!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the Snodgrass side of the family this year!

Bryan and I started our break with Mom and Rachel coming down on Tuesday night and spending the night with us. We got up early on Wednesday and went shopping at Market. Too bad our favorite Christmas guy wasn't opened! Darn it! We still enjoyed ourselves and had a great afternoon!

Bryan and I came home and packed, then got on the road to Lorena. After only 3 hrs :) we made it to Lorena where my Mom greeted us with my favorite dinner, beef stroganoff! Yum! We had dinner, my hubby got a haircut (about time!), and I relaxed at home while Bryan and Chalen went to see Harry Potter.

Thanksgiving morning, we woke up, watched the Macy's Day Parade for a little while, then got ready and headed down to my grandparent's house in Brady. Thank goodness Chandler drove and Bryan and I napped for most of the 2.5 hrs! Thanks Chan! ;) We made it to the dairy and the Thanksgiving festivities began!

Here are some pictures my mom took during the day!

After we finished lunch, most of us headed back to Lorena. Chessa (my sister who's a nurse) had to work the night shift, so we had to leave early. Chandler and Daddy stayed to go deer hunting. Chandler got his first buck of the season the next morning!

Thursday night was spend lounging around the house! Mama and I went over to visit Melisa because it was her birthday, and Marsha and the girls were visiting for Thanksgiving so I went to say hello to them. It was fun catching up!

Friday we slept in, then me, Bryan, Mama, and Chalen all went out and had lunch at Rosa's and then did some light shopping. It was busy, but thankfully all the Black Friday crazies were mostly gone! Bryan and I headed back home to Rockwall on Friday night, slept in on Saturday and then went and did our monthly grocery shopping!

Saturday night, we had the pleasure of going back to Edison's (where we had our wedding reception) to celebrate Eddie and Allison's 10th wedding anniversary! It was beautiful, the band was great, food was delicious, and we had a blast! Our favorite thing was probably the photobooth!

Sunday we went to church, my baby took me to lunch at my favorite, Johnny Carino's and then we went to Walmart to get some Christmas lights. Bryan spent the afternoon putting up our lights and I did lots of laundry! We're going to get our tree soon and will have Christmas decoration pictures to post when we're finished!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break spent with your family that was as blessed as ours!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, from our house to yours!

We all have so much to be thankful for this time of year! I am more blessed than I ever have imagined or definitely deserve!

This year, I am especially thankful:
  • that I have been saved by the blood of the Lamb
  • that I am forgiven
  • even though I am a retched sinner, Jesus still loves me anyway
  • for my family
  • for my grandparents
  • for my sweet friends
  • for my new friends at church
  • for my job
  • for my health and my family's health
  • for my freedom
  • for my home and working car
  • that Bryan and I are getting closer to saving more money and eliminating our debt!
  • for my blog friends
  • most of all for my husband who loves me everyday and treats me like a princess!
Thank you Jesus for all of your blessings!

 I hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing, Thanksgiving spent with friends and family!

This definitely made my morning!

This morning one of my sweet girls brought me this bag and said, "Mrs. Moss, my Mommy made these cinnamon rolls for you! They're hot and fresh!"

Well, after opening them up and seeing them, they were HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS that were definitely hot and fresh! SCORE! I couldn't wait and dove right into them. They were soooooooo yummy! Don't worry, I didn't eat them all by myself! ;) I shared some with my team and am saving some for the hubby! Now, if that doesn't make your morning, I don't know what does! :0)

Prayer Request

Hey guys!

I just wanted to post a prayer request that I would love ya'll to pray about! We found out this morning that Caleb's dad passed away during the night. Caleb is one of Bryan's best friend from college, and was also a groomsman in our wedding. His dad was diagnosed with cancer several months ago and was recently placed into hospice. Bryan received word that he wasn't doing very well last night, and had already planned on going down for the funeral whenever he needed to. Bryan told me all of this this morning. After I got to school, I got a text from him that said that Caleb's dad had passed away at 2:30 this morning.

Bryan will leave early tomorrow morning to go down for the visitation and funeral. Please pray for Bryan as he travels, pray for peace and healing for Caleb and his family, and pray for Bryan as he goes to comfort his best friend during this great loss. Thank you!

(here's a picture of Bryan and Caleb at our wedding in '09)

Happy Birthday Morgan!

This weekend we had the pleasure of driving down to Ft. Worth to celebrate our best friend Morgan's birthday! We had dinner at Joe T. Garcia's and had a great time! We ended up eating outside and at first I was a little hesitant because of the cold front that had come through, but it actually was a lot of fun! It was so pretty outside and they had these amazing heaters, so it was perfect!

Morgan had a ton of friends and family that came out to celebrate and then we went back to her house for game night! We played Catch Phrase and had a blast! We loved seeing Morgan and have missed her so much! We're so blessed to have her in our lives and love her more than we can say! She is an amazing woman of God! We love you Morgan!

Thank you Shutterfly!

I thought it was oddly familiar when I kept reading my friends post all about Shutterfly and their Christmas cards. I thought, "Well, maybe they're just trying to get ahead and get their Christmas cards finished early" or "maybe they just really like Shutterfly!" Haha..then I finally realized that this was why everyone suddenly went post crazy! ;) You've gotta love free Christmas cards!

Go here to check out their amazing cards and here to check out the cool wall calendars you can make! I've always wanted to make a cute calendar and think it would make a really great gift for someone!

This is one of my favorite cards that they have! Now, I just have to find the perfect picture! We're debating on having pictures done, but I'd also like to save money so we might just end up using a picture taken of us this weekend. It was a pretty cute one! I guess you'll just have to wait and see! ;)

Kyrbie's Baby Shower!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of helping to host my best friend's baby shower! I knew that one day this day would come and we've had so much fun getting to plan Kyrbie's shower! I got to host my first "girl" shower, so I went a little crazy over all the pink! ;)

We held Kyrbie's shower in Waco at the best place ever, a store called Spice. It's amazing! You must go if you're in the area! Here are pictures of the decorations. Sorry some of them are turned sideways! I couldn't fix them.

 Awesome banner my friend Crystal did! You can't see it very well b/c of the light, but it says her name, "Alexis Joy".

isn't this diaper cake that Jamie did amazing?! Now someone just needs to show me how to make them! ;)
gift table..don't worry..this picture was taken early..Lexi definitely made out with lots of loot! ;)

We had so much fun and we can't wait to meet you baby Lexi! :) I'm sure you're going to be as beautiful as your Mama!

A blog dream come true!

So this past Friday, Bryan and I headed to Lorena for 2 things: #1 to watch Chandler's last home game, and #2 for me to host my best friend Kyrbie's baby shower on Saturday. It was going to be a fast trip because my husband, FIL, and BIL all had tickets to the World Series game #4 on Sunday and were coming in from Shreveport, so we had to head back Saturday after the shower.

Now back to the point of this post! As we were driving, I of course was on my iPhone checking Facebook and boy am I glad I did! I got a notification that my friend Erin had posted on my wall. So, I looked on my wall and saw this message, "Hey girl! Are you possibly going to the Lorena game tonight? I think we're going and I was going to see if you'd be there to "meet."

What?! How cool was it that we hadn't been to a Lorena game all month and this was the night we were actually going to be there! I of course wrote her back, told her I'd love to, and we exchanged numbers! I was all excited and told my husband that I was FINALLY going to meet one of my blog friends. He didn't really get it, but was still happy for me!

Erin and I met at the football game and spent most of the 2nd half talking and catching up! It was so fun and felt like we'd known each other forever! We have so many crazy connections! We had a blast. I'm so glad that I finally got to meet one of my blog friends! God is so cool when He arranges things like that! Erin, it was so great to "meet" you and I can't wait to hang out again in the future!
