Thanksgiving has come and gone. How is that even possible, I ask you?! For us, Thanksgiving seems to last even longer since we always celebrate the weekend before with our in-laws.
Last weekend we celebrated Thanksgiving on Saturday – everything went well! Some family came early, and some were late. Our home was loud, there were a gazillion dirty dishes to wash, and I was a tired host! But you guys my heart was full. My in-laws have a complex relationship with one another. Their story isn’t mine to tell, but if I can give one day out of the whole year where we all seem to get along and enjoy ourselves, then I will take it. Plus, I hope I am helping create memories for these guys, while I am at it. These three melt my heart.
Last Sunday, Jason’s best friend got hitched. These two have been together just a few weeks shorter than Jason and me, and they finally got it together and tied the knot. It was very a casual affair, and it was lovely. I am just so happy for these two. Plus, how nice does my husband clean up? You can for sure tell he has lost weight this year.
On actual Thanksgiving, we met up with friends, and a few of my family members for the Turkey Trot. It was packed, and I haven’t been training, so I walked the whole thing – wah.
My best friend, her boyfriend, and Jason ran it. My best friend and boyfriend also dressed up. I died laughing, ya’ll.
Post 5k, we had a quick brunch (with these mimosas) and watched the Macy’s Parade.
Then we hung out at my mom and dad’s where we ate, drank lots of sangria, and snuggled with my sweet, sweet niece.
This weekend should have been productive, but I ended up bumming a lot of it. I forget that what should be a happy time sort of bums me out while Jason crams for finals. The law school widow blues were here – but lucky for me, they seem to have passed. It happens, and I hate it, but what can you do? I self medicated by working on a timeline for my next wedding in 2015, as well as binge watching more Gilmore Girls, and finished the series. #dedication, my friends.
How was your Thanksgiving?
