I love long weekends…but why is it they seem to go by so fast? A five day work week does NOT sound fun right now. Anyway, I hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving! We went to the husband’s parents house and feasted on turkey and tons of side dishes. For me, it’s all about the sides so I was lovin’ it!
I did not participate in Black Friday. Part of me wanted to but I just couldn’t bring myself to face all the crowds. So instead we bought and decorated our Christmas tree! It is beautiful….I’ll post pictures of it tomorrow. It also fell down three times! I think we bought a slightly larger/wider tree than we have in the past and our little tree stand just couldn’t hold it up. We were SO frustrated. Having a fully decorated tree smash to the ground is no fun, let me tell you. Also after decorating the same tree three times the appeal starts to fade. We ended up buying a new tree stand and so far (knock on wood) we haven’t had any problems.
On Saturday the husband took me to see Harry Potter! I LOVED it and can’t wait for part 2 to come out next summer. I also think I need to re-read all the books in preparation! On Sunday we lounged around and the husband helped me make Jen’s Sausage and Tortellini Soup. It was so yummy! (Thanks Jen!).
So how was your weekend? Did you decorate for Christmas? Are you one of those super organized people who have already finished all of their Christmas shopping?
