We spent Thanksgiving with my in-laws. Although I didn't get to spend too much time on the couch playing games after dinner, I did get to enjoy the delicious meal and a little family time. It's not very often over the last 5 years that my husband and I get to spend the holiday together, so it was nice to enjoy it while it lasted.
I had to go into work at 3pm for evening shift and had my second meal of the day with my work family. We prepared a crock pot turkey breast and all the fixins'. My pumpkin pies turned out pretty well and I also made this recipe that I highly recommend. Everyone loved it. It involves cranberries, apples, pecans, marshmallows, and vanilla yogurt. I'm making another batch today because it was that good!
Friday night we went to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. We met J's best friend and his lady for dinner and the show. It was pretty amazing! Those ladies can DANCE!
These photos are from my phone, so they aren't the best quality. Plus I had to be sneaky because photography was not allowed. But I had to get a couple...for the blog :)
It really was the perfect thing to put us in the holiday spirit. I mean, ladies dancing in Santa suits and singing Christmas songs? And some appearances from Santa himself...what more could you need?
A side note: J's best friend made a very special black Friday purchase for his lady. A RING! We are so excited for them and can't wait for the proposal.
Saturday we had some friends over for cocktails. I can't believe I don't have any photos, but I guess I was too busy entertaining and enjoying those cocktails myself to get out the camera. Sunday was low key. Really low key. This may be kind of embarrassing to admit, but throughout the day, we watched three movies.
