My Eats from Thanksgiving Week

Hey, hey…how was the weekend and your turkey days? I worked Monday through Wednesday and then Thursday headed over to the bf’s house for the holiday with his fam. His mom always gets the perfect floral centerpieces.

Friday it was back to reality and I did some work from home, errands, and of course online shopping from the sales going on for Black Friday and Saturday it was off to Thanksgiving dinner number two, this time with the bf’s friends. I honestly don’t have a ton of photos since I was busy mingling but the ice luge cracked me up, with it’s strobe lights.

There were a bunch of sides like mac ‘n cheese, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and gravy and then cookies, a trifle, a couple of cakes for dessert, and tons of beer and wine to drink plus a bonfire. All and all a great two Thanksgivings!

Hope you had a good week too!
