We fit a lot in this weekend. Between the excitement for the season and 70 degree temperatures, there was plenty to keep us busy. Speaking of the season, our elf finally showed up. Hailey is obsessed.
She literally freaked when he magically flew to his observing spot and she couldn’t reach him. She just stood there, pointing at him and screaming DAH!
…then she took off up the stairs and tried to swat at him through the balusters. Probably not very safe. He is flying to a new location soon.
Saturday started off as any day in suburbia, with errands. First a trip to the zoo.
I mean Petco, but they are synonymous in Hailey’s mind. Then Best Buy.
I know, I know. Who posts a picture like this? More accurately, who actually takes a picture like this? My name is Brittany, and I do.
It felt strange getting a sitter at 3pm on a Saturday, but we did. Then we took off to Charlotte to see the excitement of the ACC Championship, cheer on the Dawgs vs Bama and dine on Wild Wings’ finest cuisine!
…and really when I say “we” cheered on the dawgs, I mean to say I cheered them on and David didn’t cheer too hard against them. Guess he’s still a little bitter from last week’s game
I’ll use this moment to give my two cents on the game, so sorry non-football fans, but WOW. I’ve never been so proud! Georgia played their hearts out and made it an incredible game. In the end, we didn’t get the W, but both teams left it all on the field and I am SO proud of the way the dawgs showed up. I watched the game next to Bama fans, and they were delightful. We hugged after the game. That says it all.
Sunday was tree day.
Locals, I high recommend Josh’s Farmers Market trees. We found a great one and they helped up shake it, wrap it and get it on the roof.
Once we got home, it was up to us.
Why yes, Hailey did spend all day in oversized pajamas.
Thanks to our new heavy duty stand, we got it up!
We started decorating, but ran out of lights, so I don’t have an after picture yet, but the decorating-in-progress scene made me feel all warm and fuzzy.
What? What’s that you say? You haven’t seen enough pictures of the weekend?
Super! Then I’ll show you the traction Koda has made on her operation skinny dog challenge.
BAM. So proud of my pup. She is down 3.6 pounds in a month and is on track to lose a few more. Great job bug!
Time to wrap things up I suppose, so let’s try something on blog-topic for a change? Like perhaps the weekly meal plan?
Beef Burgers and Oven-Baked “Fries”
Black Bean Burgers and Roasted Broccoli
Tomato Soup, Salad and Spicy Grilled Cheese
Salmon, Asparagus and Quinoa
Enough rambling for a day right? Well I hope you are feeling the spirit of season as much as I am because TOMORROW is BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY on the blog. I’m so excited!
If you celebrate Christmas, have you gotten your tree yet?
