Weekend Recap: Thanksgiving Weekend






The last week has been action-packed and essentially one long weekend for us with the holiday! We had a great Thanksgiving and got to enjoy time with both sides of our family, which isn’t all that common to do in the same year because of distance. So, today’s weekend recap covers Wednesday thru Tuesday – it’s a long one! Not only that, our new sofas AND our new chairs arrived during those days!
One of my favorite fall looks this year!

Cashmere Sweater | Jeans | Hat | Scarf | Watch | Bag
Wednesday afternoon we headed to Iowa to spend Thanksgiving with Kurtis’ side of the family. My in-laws got a new kitten and she’s seriously the cutest thing ever! I was wearing this sweater (which I absolutely love), but Sasha managed to unravel half of the metallic trim on the sleeves. But I was okay with it because it was so much fun playing with her!

Here’s Kurtis checking to see if the food was done so he could start eating.

We had quite the spread for only six people! We had a smaller group this year because technically it wasn’t the Stewart family’s year for Thanksgiving (both sides try to rotate Thanksgiving and Christmas each year). The food was all so good and we had such a fun time spending two days in Iowa!

Friday I painted like a mad woman to get as much done as possible before my parents and the sofas arrived. Between Friday and Saturday morning, I finished painting the third coat on all of the walls and I finished the baseboards for most of the room so that I could get furniture back in place. Kurtis also changed all the outlets over to white for me, so that is done as well! Now I just have window trim and the remaining baseboard, as well as some touch-ups on the ceiling. When the sofas were delivered they essentially looked like this. The slip covers needed some major work (I still battling one of them to get it looking just right) – and they were super wrinkled. I still need to steam them. But, they are absolutely gorgeous in person. I was so nervous ordering them somewhat blindly, but I couldn’t be happier with the decision to go with these!

A shot with one of our old chairs still in the space.

We woke up early Saturday morning to hear a loud banging noise in our basement in the cat’s bedroom. We thought they were messing with their water dishes, but it turns out a bunny had fallen down our window well and was trying to get out (you can see him on the right in the photo below). We think he was bouncing off the metal latter and that’s what we were hearing. You can image with four cats staring you down thru the window, you’d want out of there too. Kurtis had to ultimately jump in the well and when the rabbit did one of his crazy hops trying to get out, he tossed him out. It only lasted about three minutes, but I felt so bad for the little guy! Thankfully he ran away super quickly so we know he wasn’t hurt at all (or at least not too badly). Such an od...
