TWTW - the one with the thanksgiving

There's not a damn thing like a five day weekend filled with turkey sandwiches, peace, and family.

Wednesday morning I changed sheets, finished packing, did some general lollygagging, then headed up to Lori & Jack's. Debbie arrived shortly after me. Lots of outside time for dogs and relaxing. We also pre-empted Thanksgiving and had turkey breast sandwiches which was an awesome call on Lori's part.
Thanksgiving morning started my favorite way - with a walk. A false start, as it turns out, because Mae sucks at long walks and had to be dropped back off at the house before we crossed the creek where we encountered bear poop. The answer to does a bear shit in the woods is yes....close to the house, too.
We had the delectable bacon sugar butter toast and I did some online shopping, purchasing this wrap from Modcloth.
I debuted my new pug leggings on Thanksgiving. LulaRoe scores again. Perry, Maria, and Ashley arrived, we stuffed our faces multiple times, and I was sleeping by 9 p.m. Perfect balance of a day.
Black Friday started with a walk in the woods, just how I prefer it to start.
We spent the rest of the day talking about poop, farts, and laughing all the way through a small business shopping day. We all wanted this dog. Speaking of, Gus ripped my ear and my uncle insisted I had rabies and told the world I had rabies and between that and not being able to get the back seat up, I almost wet my pants laughing outside of a Dandy.
Friday afternoon we pulled in and I was ready to pack my car up to head home in the morning, only MFD surprised me by showing up and we ended up staying until Sunday morning at 7.
Saturday Maria and Ashley headed home; Jack and Perry helped out a neighbor farmer; and Lori, Debbie, MFD, and I patronized small businesses, attempted the epic fart of the Troy hometown Christmas, and had lunch out. Those of us left reconvened at home to watch college football, make fun of each other, read, and lounge. We were all spent, especially the dogs, except for Mae...she was busy fangirling over her spirit animal, Dots the cat.
Sunday morning's drive home was a breeze, we left at 6:45 and got home before 9:30. I did laundry, pulled my Christmas stuff out and realized I hated all of it, finished a book, and waited for MFD to get home. I was going to make dinner but we ate at Boston Market before hitting Marshalls to buy new Christmas shit. We came home and sort of decorated, but I move stuff around for a while so that'll happen this week. As in this picture below is already false - I always initially clutter up the entertainment center then move a bunch of shit off. My ceramic trees have not been unleashed and the tree, outside, and front window haven't been done yet either. So basically there's shit all over the house that may or may not stay out. Ho ho ho mofos!
Weekly food prep is egg muffins with green onions and cheese for breakfasts and a beef noodle soup for lunches. Dinners will be baked chicken with roasted sweet potatoes and either brussels sprouts or broccoli & cauliflower.



I adore the long Thanksgiving weekend. How was yours? 





Linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston for Weekending

  1. Lol at the bear shit in the woods! I can only imagine the sight! Other than that sounds like you took in some beautiful nature for the long weekend. Hope the Christmas decorating goes smoothly from here. I'm in the same boat. Put up the tree and manage to hang about 5 decorations before deciding fuck this shit and it can wait. lol Happy Monday!

  4. I love walks in the woods.
    I like your decorations, but had I not had a week off to drag everything out and put away boxes and set up the decor, it totally would not be done.
    That Boston Market looks amazing, but glad you're back on the food prep train!

  10. OH MY WORD - that poop is REALLY close to the house. Do the dogs go out on their own? That's scary.
    Those pug leggings - nothing could be made more for you than those!

  11. Obsessed with that wrap from Modcloth! Sounds like the perfect holiday weekend, even with the false start on your beautiful walk <3

  12. Bear poop?! That is crazy. Poor Mae, how dare you ask her to walk that far?!? And umm how did Gus rip your ear? That doesn't sound like fun. Love the wrap you picked up. I am with you on Christmas decor. While I love my tree and ornaments, I want to redo our entire fireplace. I decided to wait until we move to a different house though to see what kind of set up I can do there instead. Sticking with the same old shit this year and being angry when I walk through Homegoods and see all the pretty sparkly things.

  13. Your weekend in the country sounds so awesome, especially with all the long walks! And kind of terrifying that the bear got that close to your house! Hooray for MFD surprising you on Friday and getting to spend some extra time together!

  14. I'd love to spend Tgiving weekend up in the woods somewhere! Also, I have a moment of panic every year when I pull out my Christmas decor and my house looks like a Christmas explosion and things are everywhere and glitter is everywhere and it's quite overwhelming. We spread ours out over a week this year which was an even worse idea because that crap was all over the house for 7 days lol.

  15. My house has been in holiday-tornado mode since Saturday... getting sick did NOT speed things up at all! Maybe today will be the day I finish.

  16. I kinda hate all my Christmas shit, too - I need to upgrade. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

  17. When I was taking down all my Christmas decorations last year, I hated everything and bout a bunch of new stuff. The forgot about it. So when I dug into all my packed away decorations last weekend, it was a surprise! Huzzah!

  18. Ignorance alert: there are bears in PA? Why did I think they were only west to northwest in the U.S.?
    Those pug leggings are amazing, and I'm pissed that LulaRoe isn't in Australia.

  19. that is a great wrap! i need to look at modcloth again; they have some great stuff.

  20. oh love the wrap from modcloth, i could waste so much money there. those pug leggings are fabulous.
    i might have 'accidentally' gotten rid of all our christmas stuff in the move. i kept the tree and special to us ornaments, but everything else miraculously disappeared. i get to buy all new shit next year! heck, i might buy it after this christmas because sales. we'll see.
