I hope everyone had a wonderful turkey day. I spent about six hours in the kitchen preparing the feast, but you know, it's honestly a nice alternative to chasing around a few kids. My SIL and BIL came over and we watched some football, drank some beer/wine and gorged ourselves on turkey, stuffing, sweet potato souffle, horseradish mashed potatoes, broccoli cheese casserole and cranberry chutney. No one had room for the streudal pumpkin pie until much much later, but damn, it was good.
Energized by much good food, I braved Black Friday. I only went to Tarjay, and not until 10am, so honestly, it wasn't too bad. I finished my Christmas shopping aside from a few stocking stuffers, another thing to cross off the list!
We assembled the boys bunk beds this weekend, I can't tell you how excited DB is. He's dying to sleep on the top bunk, I'm not so ready for that. For now, GB is still in the crib, not sure when we'll move him, but it won't be too long as Gert is going to outgrow the bassinet very soon.
As much as I would have like to decorate this weekend, it just wasn't in the cards. I think we'll get our tree next weekend so my BIL and SIL (who are staying here) can help pick it out. A nice family outing.
And last but not least, Gertie's not the only one looking to show off in Vegas, mommy..erm..I got my dress today and wow do I love it.
It was between this and a very nice (but plain) black dress that was flattering to my figure and really quite versatile. I tried each on multiple times, and though the black dress would have been the practical choice, dammit, I'm going to Vegas to stand up with my very best friend in the world on her wedding day, so screw practical, let's paint the town red.
I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this trip. Even though we will be bringing the wee girl, the boys will be staying with their aunties, leaving us a bit more free to have some fun.
