I won’t go into detail about going to my high school bff’s house last Wednesday night, but… Katie and I hung out on Thanksgiving Eve, ate pizza, and told stories since I haven’t seen her since my work trip to Portland!
I won’t go into detail about Thursday’s detour to our grandma’s house for 2-touch football. We left our mom’s house in the midst of all Thanksgiving food prep to spend an hour with our dad, step brother, and cousins tossing around the ol’ pigskin.
I won’t go into detail about Friday’s trip to the movie theater with Kyle. We watched Argo and I highly recommend it! Just like Colleen, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Way to go, Affleck.
I won’t go into detail about the book I both started and finished over the break (an accomplishment since I fill most of my free time with Hulu, reading blogs, or writing for this blog). I took Emily’s suggestion and downloaded Blackberry Winter. It was a fast, easy read that pulled me in right away.
I WILL go into detail about Friday night’s girls’ night with three of my high school best friends – Katie, Sarah, and Krizia. We got together at Natalie’s house (Sarah was house sitting) for dinner and drinks.
– Sarah heated up chicken spaghetti that Cindy left for us and made the best honey gorgonzola walnut crostinis.
– Katie brought some TJ’s crackers, oooold Gouda (MMMMM), and made us all lemon drops! Remember, she’s been blogging about cocktails and happy hours at Happy Hour Honeys!
– Krizia brought leftover green bean casserole and it was delicious reheated.
– I simply chopped up carrots for Katie’s artichoke dip (lazy)
After the Nuggets game, a 20/20 special on the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints, the largest polygamous community in USA, came on… Very disturbing! I can’t even imagine what that kind of lifestyle would be like. Warren Jeffs gives me the hebbie-jeebies.
I also won’t go into detail about Saturday’s double trouble birthday party honoring two very special men – our step brother Steve and uncle Darran. But, that’s because Nicole promised to recap ;)
And I definitely won’t discuss how over the holiday weekend I had a slice of that chocolate cake above, a few gooey chocolate chip cookies, multiple slices of pumpkin roll, 3 types of pumpkin pie, 2 types of berry pie, apple pie, and many slices of banana bread. Because who wants to talk about a sugar rush?
Shh… it’s a secret. ;)
Question: What’s something you did over the weekend that was NOT Thanksgiving related?
