Chad and I had our first thanksgiving as a married couple and it was perfect! Chad got to play in his turkey bowl with the guys from work while I stayed home and made some yummy chocolate chip cookies and watched the Thanksgiving day parade!:) Then I made my favorite game day treats. (Pigs in a blanket, chips and bean dip and of course coke.)
After eating snacks and watching football we did one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions .....we made homemade place mats!
(you just use wax paper,crayons, and leaves)
Then we made a yummy turkey dinner with the usual. :) My favorite part is the mash potatoes and gravy! We had a great day and made sure to let each other know how grateful we are for one another. Cant wait until next year!
For Chad's 26th birthday I surprised him with a birthday get away! My parents helped me get a sweet hotel room in Midway at the WorldMark resort. :) I was so proud of myself for actually keeping it a secret. I spent the whole day getting ready for it so when he got home we could take off. I told him we had a dinner reservation and needed to leave right after he got off work. I made him let me drive so I could blindfold him all the way to the resort. ha ha :)
When he walked in the door I had the surprise set up for him with his gifts, sparkling apple cider, junk food and his favorite dinner. I got him his favorite chips and stuff for his new bike!!
We made grilled teriyaki chicken sandwiches for dinner and they were amazing!
We went swimming, hot tubing, watched movies and just relaxed. Then in the morning we had chocolate milk, orange juice, and egg mcmuffins.
We had a blast! We got a room with a balcony and ocean view! It was so nice. It was such a relaxing time and we made so many memories (swimming with sting rays, scooter rides around the island, zip lines, shopping, etc!!!)
