Thanksgiving 2013

For Thanksgiving this year, we headed down to Austin to celebrate with my family as well as Gary and Betsy, who joined us from San Antonio.

We scheduled lunch during Ava's nap so everyone could sit down at once and enjoy the meal together.

In addition to the traditional turkey and dressing, we enjoyed a plethora of delicious sides. Including…

The Pioneer Woman's Whiskey-Glazed Carrots

Mashed Potatoes

Sweet Potato Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

And shockingly, there was still room for dessert. Good thing, because my Uncle Ryan outdid himself with his pies this year. 
After our meal, Ava enjoyed hanging out with so many family members.

We even managed to get a picture of our little family…thanks to a "choc-at" bribe for Ava.

 It was such a fun day and all they food was so delicious. And it was even better the second time around for dinner…

Does it get any better than Thanksgiving leftovers?!

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 instead. 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; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; 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. I think that about sums it up.
