A week in Mississippi

Monday, December 2, 2013

The week of Thanksgiving, I got to spend back in my hometown in Mississippi. And here's how my week went...

The week before Thanksgiving I was pretty sick. Mom came over towards the end of that week to take over since the Mr had been staying up with me. I had a baby shower in Mississippi to attend that Sunday, so she took me home with her.

AC got to meet Baby Ethan (through their mommy's tummies) at Shonda's baby shower the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Shonda and I have been messaging each other for months. She is exactly a month ahead of me, and it's so nice to have someone to ask questions to when I'm terrified to google something. The next time we see each other we will both have our babies in our arms to show off.

Monday was a lazy, rainy day. I took naps with MB and watched a good bit of TV. I was still sick and exhausted and it was nice to have MB as my personal nurse.

Tuesday, I made my way out of the house to see Angie D! The last time we saw each other was APRIL. I think we were both embarrassed how long it had been since we had seen each other. We had lunch at our favorite, The Daily Grind, and caught up on the latest in each other's lives.

Wednesday was a day I was looking forward to! The Mr stayed in Alabama to finish out the work week before coming to Mississippi for Thanksgiving. Three days and nights without him was pretty miserable. (Yes, we actually enjoy each others company!) He was the last one to leave work so we were patiently waiting for his arrival. Once he said he was on the road that lead to mom and dad's house, this was the position MB took...

Thanksgiving Day plans changed due to my grandmother being sick. Since I was still trying to get over my sickness and she had just come down with something, my parents took lunch to her and had Thanksgiving with them away from the house. The Mr and I made a plate before they left and we had a quiet lunch by ourselves for Thanksgiving Day. Of course, what else do you do after you eat turkey and dressing, sweet potato casserole, fried okra, peas and butter beans, corn, etc. — you nap! Because you need a nap to stay up to watch the Bulldogs beat the Rebels!

Friday, we headed to see my grandfather, and the rest of my dad's side of the family. When all the cousins get together... there is sure to be shenanigans and lots of laughter.

Saturday, we had Thanksgiving with the Mr's side of the family. And sadly, I have no pictures to show for it because after lunch, I napped for a few hours. I will say we enjoyed pizza for dinner and even watched the Iron Bowl.

Sunday we headed back to Alabama. It's always great to have some time to spend with family and friends, but let's be honest — there is nothing like your bed! Now the countdown is on to Christmas vacation!!
We hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and are kicking off the holiday season with a bang!


  1. Awww-Love me some Jennifer--miss her. That little girl is watching intently out the window. I love my little girl, but she makes me want to scream sometimes. She is a year and a half now--I keep hoping for the "puppy" to wear off but it hasn't yet. ha.

  2. Looks like you had a super fun Thanksgiving week! I hope you are feeling better! Being sick over the holidays is no fun!

  3. Man I am with you on you're own bed part. Nothing like it! Glad you not only got great family time, but friend time as well! Super fun! Hope you are feeling better! You look beautiful! Definitely glowing!!

  4. What a great family-filled Thanksgiving. That's the best part of the holiday in my opinion! I just love MB, I think I comment about her all the time. She sleeps like a little person on the pillow and its hilarious!


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
