WEEKEND UPDATE



RECAPS
1 | Apple pie. I baked an apple pie for the first time in my life last week. I was so nervous about it turning out okay. It looked and tasted delicious, but was a smidge runnier than I'd like. I'll have to work on that. :)

2 | Thanksgiving Day. We had our Thanksgiving meal up at my aunt and uncle's house, and then we came home, built a fire, and watched White Christmas and Harry Potter. I'd call that a win!

3 | Friends in town. My dear friend Aimie was in town with her hubs and baby. We got to spend a little time together hanging out and grabbing dinner in downtown Chattanooga. We tried to take a family Christmas photo for them, but the sun set so quickly! Next time. :)

4 | Christmas time is here. We went and picked out our Christmas tree on Sunday, decorated the front of the house with garland and lights, and we'll be decorating our tree this week! We tend to decorate in stages. Ha!

The apple pie looks delicious and I am sure it was. The first time I made one it was too runny so next time I just added a few more apple slices and it worked like a charm. Also your tree is adorable!

I made my first ever pumpkin pie (I'm pretty sure) and it was okay, but it needs some improvements too! I used a fresh pie pumpkin and I'm thinking that it wasn't the best one.

Your hot cocoa/Thanksgiving/movie night and Christmas decorating sound wonderful! :)
