Coming back to the office after having four glorious, fun-filled days is one of the toughest things ever, I'm sure of it. Four days is that perfect amount that makes you feel like you went on a vacation, or like you were back in high-school again with extended time off for holidays. But sadly, Monday morning rolls around again and you're back at it... doing the whole look grown-up and presentable thing. I will say, I think this Monday will be made slightly better with the addition of Cyber Monday to my lunch hour ;)
So since we're all grumbling about being at work, and rubbing sleep out of our eyes still, what better way to get through it than to just photo dump the holiday weekend on the blog? I'm hoping many of you have the same idea today; I love looking at everyone's Thanksgiving photos and seeing all the family and friends that gathered over the weekend.
I also got to meet my sweet cousin's baby Evy for the first time over the holidays! Isn't she a cutie? Possibly the most "chill" baby I have ever been around... she was too cute and just so happy all day. We ended our day at my grandparents with our traditional self-timer family shot. Pretty soon we are going to run out of space to fit everyone in! ;)
My sister, brother-in-law and niece were in town for Thanksgiving and we also did an early Christmas with them since they won't make it town again for a few months. As I'm sure you all know, I was pumped out of my mind to have that little cutie here for a few days and I spoiled her the best I could ;) She was too cute opening all her gifts and loved everything and everyone, especially Jared! I wish I could share photos of her, but just know that her cuteness is out of this world!!
Most of my pictures end up being of my niece, but that's normal right? It might not be normal that I forgot to even get a photo of Jared and I, but I did capture some hilarious photos during yet another game of Hedbanz. (My family will likely be sending me threatening texts after seeing these photos ;)) I can't say enough about this game, though! My in-laws bought it for us last Christmas and now it's a must at just about every get-together. So much fun!!
Other than lots of quality family time (and food- oh the food! #dietstartstoday) we got to watch the Bengals pull out a "W" with a crazy, sloppy, weird game. Dalton and other teammates were battling the flu this week so it's impressive they were even able to get it together at all, honestly! It's my opinion that I don't care how you get the win, just as long as you do! A win is a win is a win! Plus, my Bengals are #1 in the AFC North- enough said!!
I hope you all had a great long holiday weekend- can't wait to read and see all about it!
