Week in Review: November 24 - 30, 2014: Day in the life Vlogs!

Monday, December 1, 2014

Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday. As many of you know... I post a week in review recapping what happened over the week & weekend. Its something that I have been doing off and on for years. Its just a simple way to give you guys a glimpse into our weekend. I also vlogged a little each day which you can see below. I am changing this post up for the month of December. I will be sharing all my vlogs from that week along with a few pictures here and there. You can see everything in the vlogs so no need for a huge written out blog post! Hope you enjoy. 

Monday:  We started back up with Vlogidays! I vlogged everyday last year but it was under Vlogmas not Vlogidays. You can see all the videos here if you are interested. But we started back up! I was a little worried about not having that much to show to you guys, but I am just going with it.



Tuesday: I had to go get some shopping done for Thanksgiving. I was hosting dinner and had to get out and about to pick up the things we needed. Scott and I were just wore out by time night hit!



Wednesday: I stayed busy most of the day and evening baking and getting things ready for the big day! It was a day at home.. which I totally enjoyed!



Thursday: We celebrated Thanksgiving with my sister in law along with her husband. We had a lovely time and a lovely dinner. Everyone pitched in and helped me cook which was totally amazing and I was so thankful for their help.



Friday: Scott had to head back to work Friday so Trina and I decided to go do a little shopping. Neither of us wanted to hit the big stores but we had to run a few errands and do a little shopping. Thankfully we missed the crowds and had a nice time out and about.


Saturday: Trina and I were not about to sit in the house all day. She lives about 8 hours away so we had to make the most of our time together. We decided that we would go out for manicures and pedicures which felt amazing. We then grabbed a quick bite and was off to do a little more shopping. We ended the night with Yahtzee and me raiding the frig late at night.



Sunday: Trina and Trent headed out after brunch and Scott and I rested most of the day. We both were tired and didn't want to do much. I worked on the computer for hours on end while we watched tv and hung out. It was a easy day for us and we even opted for Arby's for dinner. Nothing to be proud about but I was not going any near the kitchen last night. So I was grateful the boys all enjoyed Beef and Cheddars! I ended my night getting things ready for the boys because life is back to normal for the moment. However, Christmas is going to be here before we know it!
