Thanksgiving 2016

The Seton Fund Gala fell on the weekend before Thanksgiving, so the kids and I stayed in Austin for the whole next week while Josh flew back to Dallas for a few days to work. 

I worked from my Austin office Monday and Tuesday while the grandparents held down the fort. The kids enjoyed many adventures, including exploring the woods near Grampsie & Nana's house as well as a trip to Zilker Park with Bunny. I loved receiving these photos while working.

We also managed to squeeze in some visits with friends during the week. 

I was so excited to finally meet baby Gigi! And I promise Rylan was too despite his face in this picture.

We also enjoyed a fun evening at the Arnolds' house.

Two little boys bonding over one giant firetruck.

In age order, but not height order :). Love these kids.

The kids also got in some sword fighting and snuggling with Nello...

Then it was time for Thanksgiving! In addition to making the sweet potato casserole, my main contribution was putting together this epic cheese board. 

Come to Mama...

My Mom cooked a wonderful meal, and it was such a great day spent with family.

I am especially thankful for these two...

And this silly little turkey as well...

Who quite enjoyed his Thanksgiving meal.
Josh and I finished up the holiday by attending the TCU-UT game on Friday. #HouseSlightlyDivided

Go Frogs!!

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.
