Hey everyone… hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving (and Black Friday!)!! We took a few days off from the ol’ blog to spend quality time with the familia! I even gave hubs the day off from cocktail Friday seeing as he was busy mixing up Spiced Apple Cider Sangria and Cranberry Pomegranate Margaritas for everyone… but I knew you’d understand πŸ˜‰

Anyhow, I know this is totally delayed, but I figured better late than never! We’ve been busy enjoying family and Turkey… and ham… all the fixin’s… homemade tacos… and doing some birthday celebrating for the lovely Aunt Pam!

Pam- this is your official blog shout out… so you better start reading the blog now πŸ˜‰ haha

I’m bringing you our Thanksgiving re-cap via, your favorite and mine, INSTAGRAM… (yes I am still obsessed!):

On the Road at 6:30 am… headed to O-Town!

Handsome driver πŸ˜‰

Teaching the cousins about the joys of Where’s Waldo…

Man down (BEFORE we ate)

Grandma’s kitchen… where are the action was going down!

This are our “ready to eat” faces!

It’s not a Southern holiday without mac n’ cheese!

Dish duty… enough said πŸ˜‰

Family Taboo… hilarious.

Planning out Black Friday shopping…

Spiced Apple Cider Sangria by the Fire…

Washington DC puzzle… INTENSE.

Shopping… Outlets were IN.SANE.

Homemade Taco shells are THE. BOMB. Grandma does it RIGHT! (yes, those are taco shell tongs!)

Happy Birthday, Pam! πŸ˜‰

    We do not do Black Friday here the way you do in the States. Pretty sure from the stories I’ve heard that you could not pay me enough to go out in that insanity πŸ™‚

    Glad to here that you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!!

    I just found your blog, and I LOVE it! I’m new to cooking outside of my comfort zone (i.e. things I’ve always made and no longer need the recipe for or things from a box), so I love to read stuff like yours! :o)
