Thanksgivings (Yes Plural)

This year Derek and I had the chance to celebrate Thanksgiving several times… and you don't see me arguing!

First I had a Thanksgiving potluck at work that was interesting. A lot of the people I work with are Latino so it was a fusion Thanksgiving with a lot of Latin food and some American food. Turns out it was really good!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip I made… AMAZING!

We also did a Friendsgiving with our medical school friends. It was such a fun night full of food and laughs. I am so glad we have these great friends.. they are definitely on my list of things I am grateful for this year! Thanks to Matt for having a great camera and taking lots of fun pics. And thanks to everyone for cooking up some amazing food for us to enjoy!

So. Much. Food.

Love these ladies

Our last Thanksgiving was with my family in Satellite Beach. My cousin came from North Carolina and my other cousins came with their kids. It was so fun to have the family together (minus Mike) and be together. I wish the day could have lasted longer! Sarah and I had a little photoshoot in the back yard because, well, thats what we do when we get together. It was awesome… so enjoy :)

Sarah's Visit

I am so glad that my sister decided to come down to Miami and visit me for the weekend. I was able to work from home and get some free time so we had a chance to have some fun. We did a lot of relaxing, resting, movie watching, some baking and, of course, shopping! We got Sarah her first pair of maternity pants and hit up Banana. I needed some serious fill of sister and it was perfect timing. Thanks for coming Sarah and come back soon!
