This holiday weekend was filled with goodness. I went home to visit with my family, eat lots of delicious food, and relax! Our Thanksgiving celebration was fabulous.
Thursday we celebrated Thanksgiving by watching the parade, eating Monkey Bread, and then feasting on one huge meal in the afternoon. That night we attempted some midnight madness at the local outlets, but turned around when we saw the insane amount of traffic (if I only had photos!). We returned home to a midnight snack of ham biscuits!
Friday morning was the perfect time for a walk/run at the beach with Auntie A, Em, and the dog. Friday afternoon we had a freak storm - hail, snow, and lots of rain - so we napped and spent time with the grandparents. Em got me hooked on Glee, which we watched on Hulu. Loved it!
Saturday the weather was beautiful. Em and I went back out to the outlets and checked everything off our list in 2 hours. Watched more Glee, ate more leftovers, and spent time with Michael's family. In the evening we celebrated Auntie A's birthday and ate more delicious food.
Sunday it was time to pack up and get ready to go back home. We tried out my parents new coffee pot in the morning. I'm so glad they decided to go with this model. No more worrying about the burner on or that gross taste of burnt coffee.
I could not have asked for a better weekend. Thanks for hosting all of us, Mom and Dad! We had a great time! Now off to bake gingerbread cookies. Loving this holiday season!
