A much needed break!

I don't know about you, but I really needed those few days off. Thanksgiving was awesome, as usual. We ate too much, laughed too hard, and tossed too much football. JK that's not possible ;)
I'm so thankful for the time I got to spend with family that I don't see enough, and the weather was incredible, so that helped!

It was pretty funny when Caleb and my brother showed up in the same OSU shirt, too!

We did our usual Black Friday/Christmas shopping and had a blast. Friday we did a whole lot of relaxing and then I met up with Lyndsie for dinner. I'm glad she decided to hang even though she was really sick, we had a great time, as usual!

Saturday, we enjoyed watching OSU win their game, and then we decorated our home! It's honestly one of my favorite things to do with Caleb! Deciding where to put the tree, placing all of our awesome ornaments, hanging all of our decorations, etc.! Of course, we had the "Pop Christmas" station on and I sang a little too loud when N'Sync came on ;)

We didn't do anything fancy the remainder of the weekend, just grabbed dinner at our local favorite Mexican place, and spent a lot of time cuddling on the couch watching a lot of football. It was my favorite, and it really has me itching for our stay-cation week mid-December!

Also...WHO DEY!!??!?!! 9-2 feels SO good! We celebrated the win by tossing football outside for well over an hour. I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving and got to spend it with all of your favorite people!

I started this morning with this youtube workout video that rocked my world - although the trainer was a little silly, her voice kept me going. She kept reassuring me my glutes would look great after ;) I really need to make some changes in my daily lifestyle, both big and small, and this was a great start on this Monday morning. Here's to a new week!


  1. I love decorating for Christmas!!!! I don't know why, but all the extras and the tree and lights just feel so much more cozy! I'm glad you had such a good weekend :)

  2. LOL to Caleb and Brandon matching!!! ;) And YAY for your staycation being right around the corner!

  3. Ummm I need to try that workout video! I went running today, and it was DANG cold. I need some indoor regimens haha so glad you had a great break!

  4. Oh Kayla, it was my RAMS - of course you had that win before the game even started, haha! ;)

  5. Girl me too! I found myself constantly grateful for the break! And time with family and friends. Loved every minute.

  6. Pretty perfect weekend! We spent a lot of time on the couch as well - it was awesome!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  7. I love online workout videos!! They are the best.

    Yay for fun, realizing weekends. Literally we didn't move from the couch for the majority of the weekend. Except to get more food...Ha! You look beautiful in that first picture! (and always, of course!)

  8. oooh definitely trying that workout video. your hair looks super cute! that's hilarious your brother and Caleb showed up with matching shirts!

  9. I'm always dragging my husband to help set up too! He had a good time with the tree, but I do end up getting everything else in place. Then I call him to the room and ask what he thinks.. haha I'm a bit of a perfectionist and things can get a little boring while I'm deciding where to place things. Awesome job on the workout.. I'm going to try to be a bit better about it, for sure. I used to LOVE fitness blender's channel on youtube. I followed it everyday and it made for a great workout!

    1. Oh girl, you must've mistaken me ;) Caleb LOVES to set up. A little too much maybe. He cut little banners that said merry Christmas and just started taping them to our walls!!? Haha!! He kills me. It's one of our favorite things to do together. Also, I'll need to check out that YouTube channel! Sounds perfect!


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
