Happy Friday after Thanksgiving everyone! I'm currently writing this from Alex's mom's back porch in Gulfport Florida.  I've got my Saltwater sandals and a sun dress on and can feel the sunscreen making my face feel greasy.  But that oh-so-good greasy, because the sun feels so good!  Also, it really feels like the sky is bluer down here- is that true?

Alex and I flew down Wednesday and are here until Sunday.  Yesterday consisted of cooking our own little feast (a roast chicken since there were only 4 of us, pumpkin pie and plenty of delicious sides).  All while the dog show and Willy Wonka played in the background.  We thought we were cooking a mini feast but even with a chicken instead of a turkey, we could have easily fed 12 people.  Haha, I guess that's the way Thanksgiving's supposed to be though, no matter how many people are around the table- there should always been too much food.  Then we headed over to Jane's friend's house where they had food for like 100 people!  I'm not joking, there were at least 2 Turkeys.  It was great to meet some friendly people (and dogs) and start the season off right with my first Baileys of the year!

Then we went home full and socialized and watched TV until we fell asleep.  Today consisted of walking around beaches and then Cirque du Soleil in St. Petersburg tonight!

Yay vacation.  Yay warm weather. Yay family. (Yay means I'm thankful for these things).  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Sorry to rub in the beautiful weather Cold Winter Weather Readers, but I just can't help myself.

  1. I'm reading this while staring out the window into the gray Ohio sky, which managed to drop some snowflakes yesterday, and is predicted to stay gray until springtime...needless to say, I'm very jealous! It sounds like you had an awesome vacation. Happy Thanksgiving!
