because life should be eventful

Tag Archives: thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving, we traveled up to Nashville, TN to spend the holiday with Davey’s mom and brother. It was such a wonderful trip and it was so nice to be back in Nashville. Both of our hearts are in the city and we long for the  day that we can be there permanently! On our way back to Texas on Sunday, I wore this comfy outfit for the long travel day ahead. Little did I know that our 9 hour drive would turn into a 14 hour one! Right outside of Memphis we hit bad traffic and we didn’t get home until almost 3am. Blah. This outfit was a comfy one to travel in, lots of layers and stretchy fabrics help to maintain comfort throughout the drive. I think after a certain amount of time in a car though, nothing is comfortable anymore! 

What is your favorite outfit for a long car ride?

Enjoy! Xo

Every year I love to look up new Thanksgiving recipes to try. We usually have our staples at the dinner table that day (Fried Turkey, Pumpkin Pie, Cornbread Stuffing) but we always love to look up new ways to make the classic dishes. I have done some scouring over Pinterest the last couple of weeks and have found some of the recipes I’d love to give a shot this year! What are some of your tried-and-true favorite dishes and what new dishes do you plan on making this year??

Enjoy! Xo
