Happy Sunday everyone. Yikes this long weekend went fast. I barely even know what day it is anymore. Right now, I’m reporting to you live from my living room, where I’m currently in my third day of comfy pants. It’s amazing how fast regular pants change from fitting to not fitting over the course of Thanksgiving.
But I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and stuffed yourself until you could barely keep your eyes open.
I know I did!
Alrighty, I’ve been gone a few days so let’s start recapping the fun.
Sweet baby Jesus more food?
I love home-cooked food and Thanksgiving is the Super Bowl of food in my house. A close runner up is Christmas.
And because I have two Thanksgivings in one day, I took Twitter’s advice and rocked the leggings. And thank goodness I did. Without them, I would have been walking around pantsless by 3p.m. Don’t worry, I would have had underwear on. But Thanksgiving #2 in just underwear and a sweater would have been embarrassing (for others).
And the food this year (as always) was amazing. Turkey, fruit, green bean casserole, (super cheesy) mashed potatoes, Jell-O and of course, more dessert than I could handle. Good lord the amount of desserts almost outweighed the meals! And sadly, because we were mourning the loss of a local bakery, both mom and dad got cakes from it to say goodbye, which means my dessert was bumped from the roster.
I know, I’m disappointed too but dad specifically asked me to make them at Christmas so I will not be defeated.
Here are some pictures!
Oh and I didn’t photograph the stuffing and cranberry relish. I’m not a fan of either one. I know, I’m a freak.
I even skipped an impromptu Thanksgiving #3 because the tryptophan was making me sleepy and I had to lay down and rub my stomach while watching the Beyonce concert on ABC (which was fab!)
Black Friday: Coupons and no mercy!
I’m not a huge post-Thanksgiving shopper. Something about massive crowds, pushing and being forced to make immediate decisions freaks me out, but we do have a nice Black Friday tradition in my family. Every year we go to the Kenosha outlet mall to begin our holiday shopping, but we only end up buying for ourselves. Oops!
Anyhow, this year, I was able to score a few cute things at good deals, including some shirts, two new JCrew necklaces and a new Coach wallet. Some of my bounty is below.
My best deal: A $22 Banana Republic necklace rung up at the wrong price of $4. Win for me!
I also found a gorgeous purple dress to wear to my company’s holiday party this year. I love the color and it’ll be super flattering on my problem areas (aka my stomach).
All in all, it was a good, relaxing weekend. But getting back into a routine this week is going to s-u-c-k!
So what about you? What was your favorite part of this weekend or your favorite Thanksgiving food? Or did you go shopping on Friday and score any good deals?
