Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

We had such a great Thanksgiving!  I so enjoyed having a long weekend off to spend with my sweet husband :)

We started off with our traditional chicken enchiladas on Thanksgiving Eve!  (recipe here)


We had a great time eating & sharing a lot of laughs with my dad's side!

2nd married Thanksgiving :)


Headed to visit Jared's side. 

Friday, we did some target shooting on the farm to get ready for our conceal & carry class!

We finished up the night with some Christmas shopping and a hibachi dinner date.

Saturday was such a good day!  We spent the day decorating our house for Christmas and watching UL get a win in football & basketball!  (Sadly, my AU Tigers lost :/)  Jared and I buy an ornament on every trip so it's always fun unwrapping our ornaments and reminiscing on where they came from.

Saturday night, we relaxed on the couch & enjoyed our tree!

So thankful for this husband of mine. 


Sunday, Jared had to go back to work so after church I took this cutie (our cousin Cooper) to visit him at the fire station!  It was so fun watching Jared show him around the fire station & truck. 

I can't believe the holiday is already over and it's Monday!  I'm so excited that it's officially Christmas season and am looking forward to our favorite time of year in our house!   

Side note: all my posts keep aligning to the left no matter what and it's driving me crazy!  Anyone know how to fix this?

New Blog Design & Birthday Celebrations

Sorry for the lack of blogging this past month!  My template was corrupted but now The Peacock Roost is back with a new and improved design and lots of great posts on the way!

We celebrated my birthday last weekend and it was a great one!



Friday, I had a great girls lunch with my granny!

Followed by a cold but fun time at the OHS game!  Sadly, they lost :/

Saturday, my great husband treated me to a movie, shopping, yummy dinner & another movie at home!  We saw Love, the Coopers at the theater and sadly were not that impressed by it.  We followed that up with some Christmas shopping, my favorite buffalo mac & cheese at CKB and watched Southpaw at home to end the night!  That movie was really good!

Thanks to this guy for such a great day!

On my actual birthday, we went to church, watched a football game and then had these awesome people over for a yummy birthday dinner!  So much fun!  We are so blessed by all of these people and are so thankful for them!  It was a lot of fun and a great way to ring in 27 :)

Lots of birthday goodies! (Yes, I know that's not how to tie a blanket scarf lol)


My <3







It was a great birthday!  Can't wait to see what this year holds!  Thanks to everyone that made my birthday so great!
