Friendsgiving at the beach house

It’s officially the holiday season {yay}! We had a pretty low-key Thanksgiving this year with a couple of our friends. Even though we couldn’t be with family, we did get to talk with all of them via phone or FaceTime. I even FaceTimed with my family in Michigan! It made my day. I’m so thankful FaceTime was invented. Rob and I picked up the turkey and pies, and because we went to Costco, we went big. Now we have a TON of leftovers, and having that much left-over pie is not a good thing for me, ha. This year we also brined our turkey, which was so easy I’m not sure why we’ve never done it before. Then we covered it in garlic, butter & sage. It came out perfect. Because the turkey took longer than we thought, I was able to take a lot of before pics {sorry, no food shots!}. It was so nice to just visit and watch holiday movies and enjoy Thanksgiving together. We have so much to be thankful for every year. God has been keeping a close watch on us, in more than one way. Every new day is a blessing. Hope you all enjoyed your turkey day and got to spend it with your loved ones.

I’m also pretty thankful for this man. Every day I fall more in love with him and thank God for putting him in my life. We’re having so much fun these days. Every night is a date night {we’re trying to soak up as much alone time as we can before this little one comes and changes our world!}.  Thank you, Rob, for being so loving and funny and supportive. You’re what life is about and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anyone else.
Cheers to good friends and good food — ready for the Christmas now!

    Hey Cheryl: Its Jennifer Murdock…how are you, actually I don’t even have to ask! You are adorable as ever, living a wonderful life and now a baby on the way–boy no less! Many Congratulations! I was writing Christmas cards and when I got to Joy and then Johannes I paused to think, I wonder if Cheryl is on facebook…didn’t find you there but found this AMAZING blog. The last address I have is in Tempe, but am assuming your folks are still in Mesa. Would love an updated address, #, etc…my email is XOXO-Jennifer
