Monday morning is the worst part of a holiday weekend!
Why does it come so quickly and feel so terrible?!
I’m prefacing this post with the honest truth that I am feeling BLAH!
I WAY overdid it these past few days (but, boy was it fun!) and I’m really dragging today (just as I was yesterday!).
We had a weekend filled with eating, shopping, hanging out and quality family time. It was wonderful, busy and productive!
I have to admit that on top of everything, I’m always a little sad to see my family drive away (or to drive away from them!).
I didn’t take any pictures this weekend, but soaked up all the time we had together. I also missed a pregnancy update. Sorry, $hit happens.
I was too busy prepping my house and our meals to prep any posts, and honestly, I much preferred lingering over a cup of coffee chatting with my parents to scrambling to download pictures and remember what the past week held!
Other than tired and feeling pretty food adverse to things like turkey (:-P), things have actually been going pretty well. We’ve done a bit of clothes shopping for BabyH. Knowing the gender of the baby has helped us come to ‘reality’ with the upcoming ‘situation’.
We still haven’t started on the nursery, and I suspect it will be the present wrapping room for a few more weeks! A 2013 project…
So, how was your weekend? What was your favorite recipe that you tried? Did you get any good Black Friday deals?
Also, if you are looking for a leftover turkey recipe, I’d suggest Hank’s Gumbo (sub turkey for the chicken!). It’s an easy recipe to prep on a weeknight and uses a good amount of your leftover turkey (we had this on Saturday…).
I promise I’ll get back into the swing of things this week, but in the meantime, fill me in on your exciting weekends!
And… if you are still shopping today (at work):
