Last week, I talked about using my blog as a scrapbook to document fun memories because I have put the actual act of scrapbooking on the back burner lately. So today I want to share the details of last weekend when my family came to visit Parker and me for the first time in Southaven!
My mom, dad, and Ebie got to Southaven right before lunch on Friday, which is seriously impressive because it is about a 6 hour drive from Mobile. We visited for a little while, and I got to show them around our home! It's always so different seeing things in real life than it is over FaceTime or through pictures.
Then, they unloaded their car, and everybody was curious about the treats we got!
Thanks Mama- so many amazing treats for us all! The one who should have gotten all the treats was my mom because we were throwing her a late birthday celebration. We snuck in a few festivities throughout the weekend.
After an hour or so at home, we headed off to Germantown. We had lunch at Tazikis, which was delicious as always.
Then, we went to The Shops of Saddle Creek, which is my very favorite place to shop. My mom needed to return something at J.Crew, so we started there and we did more than just return an item... They were having a sale, so we each got this hair tie and this white top (the one Ebie is holding) that I styled and talked all about in yesterday's post.
We didn't do too much shopping because my dad was with us, and we wanted to make sure he enjoyed his weekend too. So we went to a couple of other stores and then headed home to spend the rest of the day with Parker, Bailey, and Rosie.
We spent the whole day Saturday at home, aside from a walk my mom and I went on. We don't have too many pictures of us because we were in our comfy clothes with no makeup on all day. I did try on my bridesmaid's dress for Ebie's wedding, so that was exciting!
Between football games, Parker pulled out all of our lunch food, and we enjoyed a gameday lunch of cowboy caviar, Chicken Salad Chick, boiled peanuts from Parker's dad, and some chicken Parker grilled. Kinda random, but delicious!
The football games just so happened to be perfectly spaced out, so we all got to hang out together while we watched our teams play. Ebie got to watch the LSU game first, then Parker got to watch the Auburn game, and my mom, dad, and I got to watch the Alabama game last. All of our teams won, so that always makes the day more fun!
We enjoyed some bourbon and coke zero during the Alabama game and the shakers came out! Anyone else still have shakers from college? They definitely brought us some laughter and fun!
I made seafood ettouffe for dinner. It doesn't look pretty, but it sure does taste good! And we enjoyed a cheesecake for my mom's birthday dessert later on!
We had some pancakes for breakfast before my family packed up their bags. We took one final picture of our new hair ties because I wanted to show y'all how cute they are! Perfect stocking stuffer for girls of all ages!
Our weekend flew by way too quickly, as it always does. But now the countdown to Christmas begins!
Thanks so much for reading! I'll be back tomorrow with a Pre Black Friday Sales roundup! Have a wonderful weekend!
