Turkey Day and Winners

Well, lots of my blogger friends are creating and recreating and cooking and cleaning and doing all kinds of productive chores . . . and can you guess what I've been doing?

Not as much couch time as you might think.  


Instead, I met a friend for lunch yesterday and then I went shopping.

For myself.

I did some damage, but now I actually have things to wear for when I do eventually go out shopping for others.  Or so that I can look good whilst doing online shopping which is what I prefer.

Today, the hubs and I went to a movie and to lunch and to Target and to Best Buy.  We saw lots of Crazies from Crazy Town at Best Buy . . . they were the ones in the lawn chairs and sleeping bags.  Already.

And I know they must have thought we were the crazy ones going into Best Buy a whole day and a half before Black Friday, but that's because crazy people don't know they're crazy.  

That's what I've been told, anyway.

We saw the new Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence movie.  Jennifer Lawrence is Katniss, by the way.  It was good, but not as much of a romantic comedy as we had hoped for.  It was mostly dark.  With a lot of hotness from Bradley thrown in for good measure.  And while he never took his shirt off, he still looked good in a trash bag.  Literally.  In a trash bag.  I say, trash never looked so good and I need to go buy a Hefty bag and see how it looks on my hubby . . . 

Tomorrow we will be going over to my mom's for dinner.  And that's all.  For the first time in a really long time, we are not going to both families on Thanksgiving.

When I told this to a friend, she immediately asked if we'd had a falling out.

I suppose that happens in real life and that's actually a really good reason other than the one I have.  The one I have (and which also happens to be the truth) is that we're tired of going both places and spending the entire day away from Sydney and our home and our couch and our comfy clothes.

So I said in a hushed voice, "Yes.  We had a huge falling out and I still can't talk about it.  It's too raw."  Sniff.

Okaaaaay, nooooo, I didn't say that.

It doesn't matter what I said in order to make myself look good.

Anyways, what are you doing for Thanksgiving?

  5. I am recovering from having a molar extracted today. For some horrifying reading entertainment, check out my last post!

    And we-hubby and I- are still taking three teenagers and one preteen, in the sad van, to both sets of inlays, for two separate meals. Of which I can eat mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. Truly yummy, but I'll miss the pecan pie and the turkey!

    Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your cozy sofa :-)

  6. Ha! I typed inlays instead of inlaws.

    I'd better lay low on the pain meds. :-)Chrissy

  7. I saw the Bradley Cooper movie (that is how we refer to anything he even has the slightest part :) and was conned into thinking it was going to be a funny movie! The movie was a look into mental illness with a happy ending. Still...watching Bradley Cooper is worth it but didn't you think in one of the last scenes we were getting the BC shirtless!!! And I agree that he is hot in HEFTY! Happy Thanksgiving

  8. We are not doing either family for thanksgiving or Christmas! We're staying home. After months of wedding planning...a wedding...a Chicago trip to see Madonna a week before the wedding...honeymoon...wedding showers...we have zero desire to do anything. So we're staying in Nashville and hitting up Cracker Barrell!

    Gobble gobble!

  9. Happy Thanksgiving! i'm thankful I only have to do 1 Thanksgiving with my family! His family doesn't do anything big and we always see them for a part of Christmas. So we're hanging out at my parents house and letting my momma cook everything! :) I'm making an apple pie. Hope you have a restful, relaxing break!
