Catching Up

I am finally sitting down to try to sort through what was Thanksgiving weekend. I still have remnants of the feast in my refrigerator.  Yesterday, I tried to organize the mess and found a pie I had completely forgotten about. Uh, yes. That is me, the forgetful baker.  This alone tells you that we had a bit too much food.


Thanksgiving was a lovely day of rest, cooking, watching the end of the Macy’s day parade, cooking, a walk, cooking, eating and family time.   

We also got to sit down a lot, which was a nice change. 

Friday we spent restoring the house to its normal state and washing dishes. I love cooking; I greatly dislike the cleanup part of the deal.  Around 2 PM I got up the nerve to do a little bit of Black Friday shopping.  Apparently, I am not a gung-ho, shop instead of sleep, dedicated economy booster.  I went to Target and bought a $20 chenille throw for my living room for $5 and a $20 vest for $7.  We also went to Kohl’s and bought a $40 pair of jeans for $10 and a $50 chef’s knife for $25.  Rack Room Shoes was having a big sale and we were able to buy Caleb two pairs of shoes for $15 a piece.  Overall, we were able to find some great deals on things that we needed.  We are keeping it simple this year, in a lot of ways, so there isn’t too much shopping to be done.

Saturday we enjoyed meeting up with friends for a game of flag football.  

The boys played and the girls watched.  The cold weather has certainly arrived as I could no longer feel my face by the end of the game!  It was nice to spend some time enjoying the great outdoors.

What a blessing it was to have some down time and to rest.  Especially since Christmas is RIGHT around the corner.  I am hosting my first giveaway tomorrow and I am super excited! Check back first thing in the morning to find out how you can enter to win gift cards at my blog and many other blogs!
