TWTW - Thanksgiving

1. Wednesday MFD and I loaded up the dogs and headed north for the weekend. It was a bit of a white knuckler in some spots but we made it to Lori & Jack's by 10:30. Relaxing ensued. Sorry for double ups of any instagram pics from this weekend!
2. Scenes from Thanksgiving...we ate, we walked in the woods, we lounged, we watched football. It was a great day!
3. Friday we set out to patronize small businesses on our annual made up sleigh ride. The car ride was a riot full of laughter and cursing as always. We also saw Lori & Jack's new lake house. Another full, fun day.
4. Saturday MFD, Maria and Ashley headed home in the early afternoon. Lori & I took the dogs for a walk in the woods, then we headed out with Jack & Perry to do some Small Business Saturday shopping and rounded out the night with the hallowed Chinese buffet.
5. Scenes from the great outdoors...
6. Lots o' lounging...
7. Wildlife sightings included lots of deer and a bird Jack saved.
8. Mae found a new friend - Popcorn the indoor outdoor cat. To say she was obsessed with him is an understatement.
9. But as always, it's a huge dog Disney.
10. Sunday the dogs and I hit the road by 7 and were home by 10. I enjoyed the scenic ride as always and listened to Serial on the way home. Laundry, Christmas decorating part one, and some vacation packing planning took up most of the afternoon. MFD and I hit Marshalls and Sam's at night, had an easy dinner of pizza, and that's all she wrote. The best thing of the weekend - Lori handed down her Kitchenaid to me. I'm so freaking excited!

On Mondays I'm doing a picture linkup called Picture Practice with Kelli at Just Beachy. If you'd like to participate, here are the prompts through December. Share on your blog, or if you don't blog on Twitter or Instagram every Monday with the hashtag #PicturePractice. This is my photo for the prompt warmth. You all need this Land's End jacket.
I almost wet my pants laughing quite a few times this weekend. That's how it goes in my family.

Zillions of good thoughts to my friend Marla at Luck Fupus today as she undergoes surgery. Marla kicks ass.
Last week before vacation. I think I can I think I can.

Tell me about your long Thanksgiving weekend - what was your peak and what was your pit?

  1. That place looks amazing and the perfect spot for a long weekend. The pups sure do look happy to be frolicking in the woods, well except Mae who is silently cursing you for that puffy vest. Though I am sure she was warm. ;) The ring of dogs waiting for food was hilarious!! Looks like a great weekend!
