Thanksgiving in {Half} Review + KEP Winner

How was your Thanksgiving everyone?

Ours was busy, but wonderful! I think we had a different birthday or holiday party everyday to go to.  We traveled to my aunt and uncle's house about an hour away from us on Thanksgiving and then spent the rest of the holiday weekend here. Me and Billy usually rotate holidays with our families {Thanksgiving with mine, Christmas with his, and next year we will swap them} since his family is 2 hours away. This year was supposed to be his side for Thanksgiving, but we decided to we will spend Christmas in Cleveland with them instead.

Although we didn't get much R&R over the weekend, it was great to have so many different parties to go to. I had every intention on sharing all the pictures I took today, but at the last moment forgot to upload the pictures. Minor detail, Katie..minor detail.

Here's a little sneak peak
but you'll have to wait for tomorrow for all the pictures & stories!

First up
A video of my niece, Mary Kate,
singing "Sexy and I Know It"

Isn't she cute?
If you're wondering, that's her sister and brother featured in this for the other .5 seconds.

Now...my Dad's side of the family loves to play euchre and every Thanksgiving they pick partners names out of a hat.

So, what do you get when you have 4 of my aunts
+ lots of booze
+ cards?

I'm not sure either.
but it was pretty entertaining to watch them battle it out.

Side note: my Dad and stepmom Judy
 are standing up on the left :)

The last party at my parents house since it sold. Oh how I will miss this backyard and view. Tear.  
{my Dad's 60 surprise party}

Rocky was tuckered out
 from all the Thanksgiving madness...

treated myself to a nice mani/pedi
went with a deep teal on my fingers
deep plum red on my toes :)

and finally...here is the winner for the KEP Designs giveaway!
I used Random Generator to pick the winner.

Congratulations to....
