I'm back! I didn't intend to take such a long break, but I needed the time away. Andrew and I spent a long weekend in Idaho with my family, and it was nice to sleep in, sing while my brother played the guitar, listen to Christmas music, stuff envelopes with my sister's wedding invitations and eat my mom's delicious Thanksgiving dinner. She even made pistachio pudding salad, which is my absolute favorite.
While we stayed away from the big Black Friday sales, we did finally score a nativity set that we love (we've been looking for one for a while), some cheap blackout curtains and a few little Christmas decorations. Andrew and my brother Reggie also tried chocolate-covered maple-flavored bacon soda (I tasted it, and it wasn't as horrible as it sounds), and we spent some time playing old Sega games with Reggie, too.
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! I always enjoy having time with my family.
