Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays...what's not to love about family all around, football on TV, and lots of delicious food.

This year, we had Thanksgiving at my Mom's house. It was nice to not have to cook anything this year, especially since being on my feet that much at 7.5-months pregnant would probably not have been pleasant (although I really do enjoy cooking Thanksgiving dinner).

This year was also the first time I got to enjoy the great combination that is Thanksgiving food and maternity pants :). I felt like Joey from Friends with his "turkey pants."

We had a great time, and my Mom's dinner and my Uncle Ryan's pies were as delicious as ever.

Here are a few shots of the family...

My Mom and Aunt Laura

My Cousin Grace, who is currently a Freshman at Pratt in New York, and her boyfriend.

Me and Mimi. This is not a great picture of either of us, but I had to include it. Mimi has had a tough couple of years dealing with Parkinson's as well as other health issues (not to mention the death of her husband, Jack), so we were all very thankful that she was with us to celebrate Thanksgiving this year.

Josh watching football and being silly.

Hanging out after dinner.

My Mom and Bonnie.

Jesse and his girlfriend, Nikki. Such a cute couple!

Me and Josh (and my preggo belly).

My lovely sister Charlotte, who is a Freshman at College of Charleston (and loving it!).

Charlotte can't wait to meet her niece :).

Not pictured are Jimmy, my cousin Isabel, and my Uncle Ryan....sorry guys!

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
