Long holiday weekend

No more picture taking please...

I love long holiday weekends. I love when you feel like you've had a long fullfilling weekend and realize that it has barely begun and you still have two days left. What an awesome feeling!

This weekend was one of the first weekends in awhile where I felt like I got so much done and yet still had time to relax. Wednesday night, I had a nice romantic meal of hamburgers and fries with my husband and then caught the movie Happy Feet. The voices of the little baby penguins were SO darn cute I had to fight the urge to want to squeeze someone's cheeks.

Thanksgiving was a wonderful long family filled day of food, food, and more food. We woke up to have food with one side of the family and then ended the night eating with the other side. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so much love. So much to be thankful for...

The next morning...black Friday, I woke up at the crack of dawn and joined the millions of other crazy americans and started shopping at 5am. We hit nearly every store that we wanted to, and finished, yes...finished, our Christmas shopping for the year by 10:30am. After a refreshing lunch with friends at The Cheesecake Factory, we went home to crash and to wrap presents.

The next couple of days were a blur of organizing around the house, wrapping gifts, visiting with friends, and relaxing.

The long weekend ended with me plopping into bed with a book feeling exhausted, blessed, and happy....

Toby was tired too.
