Winter Wonderland in Raleigh

In Raleigh, we rarely get snow and rarely get snow in December.  So as you can imagine, when the weather channel was reporting we were expected to get many inches come Sunday I was doubtful.

Friday: We stayed in and enjoyed being in comfy cozy clothes watching Christmas movies.  Anne-Stuart came over to watch the corny and funny movies that come out every year.

Saturday: We ran some errands and shopped for angel tree purchases.  Later we decided to head to Winston's Grill off False of the Neuse for dinner and drinks.  They always decorate for Christmas and it is so pretty!  I think this is our new "spot" as we both love everything about it from the food, drinks and atmosphere.

Sunday:  We woke up to snow and it was so pretty to look at. It continued to snow before it turned to rain and we got a total of 8 inches of pretty white snow. We baked cookies and ate off our Christmas dishes which I love! My dad lost power so he came over and hung out for the night until his power w…

Christmas Sock Exchange

Jess put together a fun girl's night where we would all bring a fun, festive pair of socks filled with goodies.  We rolled the dice to determine where your present would end up and we all won some great gifts.

The Casey's visit Raleigh

Quinn and Brian were coming into town for the ECU vs NCSU so we made a whole weekend out of having visitors. 

Friday: I got off work at noon and met up for lunch at Leesville Tap Room.  It was close to minute clinic since Quinn found out she had pink eye. After lunch we hung out before heading downtown for our reservations at Parkside Restaurant.  Later we had a few holiday drinks at Haymaker and they decorated the entire bar in Christmas decor.  It was fabulous.

Saturday: Game Day!  While, I am not a fan of noon games, I didn't mind since the game was in Raleigh. We lost badly, but it was a make up game and we were coach less, needed less to say I wasn't expecting much. After the game we had dinner at the Pickled Onion.

Sunday: Anne-Stuart invited us all over for breakfast before sending Quinn and Brian back home.

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas

Well, the Basom house is in full swing with the Christmas decorations.  We are almost done with the outside and managed to put up all of our Christmas trees this year.  We only did two last year but I convinced my gentleman to decorate the third tree this year.  I love how they turned out and love how each one is different.

Turkey Break

I look forward to Thanksgiving every year, maybe more than Christmas.  I just love the traditions, making new traditions and of course all the food.

Wednesday: I started working part time at Kohl's so I worked while Keith took care of the dogs.  Since, Melea is out of town we are watching her dog Maggy May and watching Hamilton and her play is so funny. I did make mini pumpkin loafs for everyone to enjoy later.

Thursday: Turkey Day was spent at my dad's house.  We hung out all day and enjoyed spending time together.  We watched a lot of football and ate more than we should, LOL.

Friday: Jamie hosted Thanksgiving and borrowed an air fryer from a co-worker - needless to say it is our new favorite way to cook a turkey.  It was amazing!

Saturday: We decorated the outside of the house and started to decorate the inside.  We met up with the Pollard family in town for some dessert at Jamie's.  It was good to see them.

Sunday: Anne-Stuart and I worked together at Kohl's and got not…

Weekend in Raleigh!

This was the last weekend before Thanksgiving Holiday, so we made sure to make the most of it.  Our friend Sydney turned 30 and we celebrated in 80s style.

Friday: My friend Annie was in town, so Annie, Anne-Stuart and I headed downtown for a little girls night.  We had dinner at Morgan Street Food Hall and then drinks at TapWorks.  It was so fun and loved being able to try all the food at the food hall.

Saturday: We dropped off Hamilton at my dad's since we knew we would be out late.  We had dinner at Clockwork and then partied at Coglin's for the remainder of the night.  It was so cool to be in 80's gear because the lights in Coglin's made everything we were wearing glow.

Sunday: We spent the day recovering and cleaning up the house.

Happy Birthday Jamie!

My sister's birthday landed on a Monday this year, and since she already had plans during the weekend to celebrate other birthday's, I thought it would be fun to take off work on Monday and spend the day.  She wanted to head to the outlets in Mebane and shop till we dropped, so we did.  The weather wasn't ideal but we had so much fun!
