Black Friday

It is almost 11:30am on Black Friday and I am totally still in my pajamas lounging on the couch, eating grilled cheese sandwiches, and watching "Snapped." Because, why not, right? Puff and Bimmer are out entertaining my horrible MIL, so I'm content to stay right here for as long as possible to avoid her. (Oh, family drama is always so fun, right?)

Let's focus on the good stuff...

Like this sweet girl. Does she not look so grown up? Sheesh! And that shirt she's wearing? It was totally my dress when I was her age. Apparently she's either taller than I am, or I wore it at a younger age. It had a horrible apron over top of it, but I nixed that and thought she looked just adorable wearing it with her jeggings and Sperrys.

Due to my goofy work schedule (I work tomorrow) I didn't feel like making our normal trip down to Atlanta to visit the MIL. (Plus, she's a bitch - so let's face it, the less time with her, the better.) I also knew she would want to try to make us go Black Friday shopping. And that is not a good idea with a 2 1/2 year old. I would have pulled my hair out. So after some a lot of bickering on her end, she agreed to come to us. So we made lunch reservations at a nice restaurant, watched the Macy's Day Parade, took a 3 hour nap, and scrounged around for dinner, since none of us thought that part of the day through.
All told, it was just kind of a day. Not necessarily anything special or memorable. It just all makes me so thankful for my wonderful husband, my adorable sweet little girl, the precious angel I am growing inside me right now, and for my friends & my side of the family. Because they show me all the time what true love and caring is all about.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you get to enjoy a drama-free holiday weekend!
