Thanksgiving break

So, I have been meaning to post a blog about Thanksgiving break ever since last week...but I kept putting it off, because I wanted to put some pictures up with my blog...but I still haven't gotten around to getting the pictures off of my I'm just going to update without the pictures.

Since I haven't updated in a while...this post might be long. But you can either read it, or not read's your choice. :)

Thanksgiving break was wonderful and very needed. Jonathan's brother Jeremy came and visited us for a few days, and that was nice. We took him to Chattanooga on his birthday...took him to our favorite pizza place (Lupi's!)...went to a terrible movie (Dragon Wars...haha, at least it was One Dollar Wednesday)...went and played with a dachshund puppy at the pet store (I want one!)...and Jonathan and him got to play video games. It was fun.

On Thanksgiving Day we went to my family's house for dinner. We got there early so that I could help my mom with some cooking (I made a pretty tasty sweet potato caserole...mmm, I love sweet potatoes), and so that we could watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (that was Jonathan's favorite part of the whole day ;) My grandparents from West Virginia were here visiting, so it was great getting to see them as well! It was a wonderful day of spending time with family and eating great food.

Last Friday Jonathan and I got up at 4:30am to experience the exciting world known as Black Friday. Neither of us had ever gotten up to do the whole crazy shopper we thought it would be a fun new experience after our first Thanksgiving being married. So...we went...we saw...we conquered. Seriously though, Black Friday is definitely a spectator sport. We bought a couple things, but really most of the fun came from watching the other shoppers. :) Very amusing!

Friday and Saturday consisted of putting up Christmas trees, watching Christmas movies, and spending time with loved ones. I will hopefully be writing another blog soon (with pictures!) about me and Jonathan decorating our apartment for Christmas. It's been very fun.

So yes, Thanksgiving break was wonderful...and needed...and I am already anticipating the next break! :)

Lies. I will never understand the American infatuation with parades during the holidays. Why anyone finds enjoyment in watching a bunch of floats, balloons, and people walking down a street is beyond me.

But I still sat there and watched it with you. Yes, I love you :)

A lot ;)

I must agree, parades are pointless and waste of time and money. Never understood them...

I thought it was a little weird and out of character when Tiffany said watching the parade was your favorite part of the whole day. ;-) I know you all too well bosser.

Tiffany - I'm so glad you had a nice and relaxing break. We all need those from time to time. I can't believe you guys braved the crowds for Black Friday. That's crazy! You are both very brave. :)

Yes, Jonathan, we all know you don't like parades. I used to love them as a kid, but now the only reason I watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is to watch the short Broadway performances they show on NBC. That's how I've been introduced to many of my favorite musicals throughout the years! :)
