Jarvis was no help! =)
       I think it is quite obvious from the picture posted here that Blake and I have too much stuff. But I LOVE my new stuff! My "Double Springs" shower was just over a week ago and with all of our Thanksgiving festivities, we are just now getting settled in with all of our fabulous new appliances. And because of our shower and Thanksgiving trip to Pigeon Forge, I have lots to talk about! =)
       I'll begin with my bridal shower. It was AMAZING!! Blake and I are beyond blessed with everyone that was able to stop by bringing gifts and well wishes for our new lives we are beginning together. Some very generous ladies from church hosted and decorated the fellowship hall of First Baptist Church for my shower. It turned out beautifully. The second I walked through the door my jaw dropped to the floor at the work and effort these nice people put in for me. All this... for us!! We couldn't have asked for anything more special. It was so special I  actually wore heels....I never wear heels, but thought they would be appropriate for this occasion, so by the time we were loading the car, I was barefoot. Real cute. But all in all, it was a great day that I will remember forever. Once we made it home the work really began... uploading and putting away. We'll find a place for all of it....maybe.

       Now on to our family trip to Pigeon Forge (sorry, too busy to take pics). Restful, relaxing, wild and crazy! First, we began our trip at 11:00 pm Wednesday night. We finally reached our destination, after losing an hour (eastern time) around 5:00 am Thursday morning...blah. So that part of the trip wasn't so great, but sleeping late and waking up to nearly the entire Harris family was so worth it. We ate Cracker Barrel for Thanksgiving lunch (delicious), and spent the rest of the trip hanging out at the cabin. Blake and I decided we wanted to move there! Haha! When you get my dad and his three siblings in the same house, it's bound to be a good time! We played all kinds of games, told jokes and stories, laughed til we cried and woke up sore from it all. =) Blake got to meet old cousins and both of us got to meet our new little ones! But let's not forget the main attraction... the IRON BOWL!!! The cabin my aunt rented for all 18 of us came complete w/ a huge theatre downstairs... with surround sound! You talk about loud and proud, my family has some of the Crimson Tide's craziest fans. After the big win, we couldn't end such a fun trip on a better note. We loaded up our suitcases, said good byes for now, and hit the road.

Needless to say we had an awesome Thanksgiving Holiday! I can't believe it has already been here and gone. Only two months til the wedding! 60 days!!! As I've said in nearly every post so far, time is going by so fast, and I am loving every second! =)
