Heh heh. SIKE. There's no bear attack. I just wanted to stand out and be unique in the world of blog titles today. No "Happy Thanksgiving!" or "Thankful" from me. Bear attack.
(PS. Nobody reads blogs on Thanksgiving. Except me. Looking through 6 years of blog statistics and analytics informs me that I am probably going to be the only person that reads this today. And I like reading about (not experiencing) bear attacks. So may as well play to the crowd today, right?)
After a half-day of work yesterday we headed to Augusta to be with my family for the Thanksgiving break. It didn't take long to get settled into Maximum Vacation Mode:
Namely, the Gone with the Wind marathon on AMC, wine, fire in the fireplace, and playing with my niece all afternoon. I dominated all four. Later in the evening we upped our game a bit by watching a Hallmark movie or 12. Anyone catch that Window Wonderland one? I must admit...I didn't hate it. I feel so ashamed.
Despite staying up til midnight watching Parks & Rec (we're up to season 5!!) I woke up early (SEVEN!!!) this morning. I suck at being on vacation (please see also: trying to sleep in in Mexico). Fortunately for us all, after an hour or so I managed to fall back asleep and stay that way until a decent hour. I was woken at 10 by my husband informing me that there were hot blimmies, bacon, and coffee ready for me. And a fire. And a jacuzzi. It was a much better way to wake up.
I've spent some time perusing the sale ads. Not surprisingly, I spent the most time looking at Ulta's. I'm not planning on going out tomorrow (a change of pace for me, but in my old age...it just seems like the right thing to do) but shopping in my PJs in front of the fire is definitely not out of the question.
We also spent some time in the aforementioned jacuzzi. It's in the 30s outside and DANG if that hot tub didn't feel awesome. Also awesome? Matt's 'going to the hot tub' outfit. Feast your eyes on THAT.
Does it remind you of another fabulous outfit of Matt's? It should. Hahaha! (PS. Matt hates when I share all these embarrassing pictures of him. He keeps threatening to start his own blog and put embarrassing pictures of me on it. Go ahead. Make my day.)
'Twas delightful. Just like my butt-cut bangs.
We still have a lot of eating, dog-show-watching, and general relaxing ahead of us today. I'm thankful for some time to do nothing and hang out with my family. It's been a pretty terrible month, but in the spirit of the day I'm trying to think of things to be thankful for. Don't hate me for admitting that the first thing I thought of is Parks & Rec. Runners-up (runner-ups? GRAMMAR DILEMMA!!) include my awesome husband, our supportive families, my sweet doggie, food, and all of you guys. Thanks so much for your love, support, prayers, and thoughtfulness these past few weeks. I love all of you and I hope you're having wonderful holidays and that none of you get attacked by a bear. But if you do, I hope you survive enough to blog about it.
