We decided to spice up our traditional Thanksgiving meal this year. Let me tell you this year was one for the books! Ryan and I chose to have our meal catered by Chipotle…now many of you may know this is Ryan’s FAVORITE place, so it was treat. He had actually done the summer Chipotle challenge- if you ate at least 11 times at Chipotle for three months straight you would win a FREE 20 person catering party. Well…that was no challenge for my husband…11 times….haha that happens almost monthly for him. It was super easy to pick up the three huge bags full of EVERYTHING we needed…down to the matches for the burners, they thought of it ALL.
This year has been such an adventure for me. Between moving to a “new” city and making our new house a home, we’ve kept busy. Throughout all of this there has never been a moment where I was not thankful for all the blessings in my life. My husband and daughter are the top two. Without their unconditional love and support there would be a big void in my life. They are the biggest blessings.
We got to share this amazing feast with my family and Ryan’s family. It was a full house! Before we sat down to eat we huddled together and for the first time my husband said the blessing. It was an empowering moment to watch and listen to him. He is the head of our family and I wouldn’t have it any other way, this sweet man is truly a gift from God. It brought tears to my eyes.
Our day was full of a lot of food and yummy desserts followed by some hilarious minute to win it games I put together! Laughter and love filled our house.
Oh yes all the food….
and finally chips and dip.
Our cups- so no one would lose track of their cup!
