TWTW - the one with Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving
Sunrise, two turkeys + double of the meal made, snacks, one meal dropped off to a local family, beach walk, dinner, The Godfather. It was quiet and perfect in my favorite place. 

Black Friday 
Sunrise beach walk, discovered I will be buying this library book thanks to Bruce, nails (Sally Hansen Cherry Fast), Dad & Carol arrived, lost MFD to Game of Thrones, spent the afternoon downtown small business shopping on Asbury Avenue and watching Santa atop City Hall during A Small Town Christmas, leftovers for dinner, Stephen/Aubrey/Lola arrived

Saturday 
A family beach walk where Lola took the reins with Mae, ice cream and small biz shopping on the boards before Lola Jean did some rides, an afternoon lie down, dinner at The Ugly Mug in Cape May, and a wander around Congress Hall's Winter Wonderland so Lola could go on the train. I’m lacking in photos this week because my phone camera sucks, any minor darkness and they’re blurry AF. 

Sunday
A morning beach walk with the dogs, cleaning upstairs and lounging with the family until about noon, a quick run to Drip N Scoop for coffee, and reading downstairs when they left. I was on the road with the dogs by 3:20, hitting Philly just in time to join the Eagles game traffic.



It was a great weekend in the place I love the most with some of the people I love the most, and the last time we’ll be together before a third Stephen joins the world. 

No food prep aside from leftovers and no blogs done for the week. I'll roll the dice and see how this goes.

How was your Thanksgiving?

  3. I grew up in a town that hosts a huge road race every thanksgiving since my Parents still live in that town and my brother was running we watched. The rest of Thanksgiving was low key naps on the couch, a board game, visiting with friends.
    Chores for days,reading, Christmas (wink wink) and church rounded out the rest of the weekend. Now it’s off to work and I think I’m seeing snowflakes.

  5. What a cozy Thanksgiving. Your turkey looks so good. I appreciate that you actually stuffed it with stuffing. Thanks to Instagram, I'm learning that lots of people don't do that! We did it that way growing up and I can't imagine any other way!

  7. Looks like a nice holiday weekend to me. Mine was great; nice combo of everything: Knicks game, shopping, decorating for Christmas, family time, way too much food, Central Park, more food and also relaxing on the couch. Oh, and Target.

  8. It sounds like y'all really did have a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by loved ones! But bummer about the traffic! That's always the worst part about coming home from a holiday weekend!

  12. Sounds like a great holiday. Glad to know Im not the only one with a destructive animal - my cat loves to chew pages of books.

  13. Looks like a really fun and peaceful holiday. I think that I'm going to channel "peace" as the key word for the Christmas season as this TG was... not always so peaceful. ;-)

  14. What a perfect little shore Thanksgiving :)
    Bummer on the library book. I'm constantly reminding Enzo that we don't put books in our mouths. Ugh.

  15. The stuffed turkey looks amazing and I love Mae's cute coat! Sounds like you kept busy!

  16. It sounds like you guys had the perfect Thanksgiving shore side!!! I never get enough of your sunrise/sunset pictures. Apparently you didn't give Bruce enough turkey and he had to take to his own devices for food ;)

  17. I need that baseball hat - seriously!!!!!
    Fun fact - I've never seen The Godfather. Any of them.

  18. "No blogs" ready at all sounds about right.
    Eagles traffic sounds like a nightmare.
    And, Oh, Bruce...

    I've never seen The Godfather either!

  19. Man do I love leftovers. I'm so sad that people liked my stuffing as much as they did because it only lasted two additional meals. I don't think it's wrong to make more though... because who the hell cares?

  20. I love that nail color and not today, satan hat! And the winter wonderland looks so pretty.

  21. Oh those beach sunsets and rises, so wonderful. Glad you got some great time with some great people and hey, relax and live on the fly!

  22. Thanksgiving day was a piece of shit but on Black Friday I made some Amazon purchases, some Etsy purchases, and then took Erica to Six Flags. The rest of the weekend was a blur but it involved Christmas lights.

    Oh, Lizzy eats all the inappropriate things, too.
