The past month has been so busy for us, so we’re going to use this post to play catch-up and recap the past few weeks.
The weekend before Thanksgiving, we went to visit my parents in Maryland. They live three hours away, so visiting often isn’t difficult. We were busy catching up with friends and family and didn’t take any pictures the whole weekend (which is uncommon for us). We have a great network of friends and family in my hometown and it’s nice to be able to spend time together over meals.
For Thanksgiving, we went to DJ’s parent’s house in New Jersey. A Nor’easter had just blown through and the weather was cold, damp, and windy – perfect for a turkey day race! DJ, DJ’s dad, Jon, and I did a 5k Turkey Trot on Thursday morning, in 30 degrees, with 20 mph winds. And turkeys that chased DJ – it was truly a turkey trot.
There were 15 people at the meal and very few leftovers. It was nice to be together for the holiday. For me, the best part was the day after Thanksgiving – not for the sales, but because that’s the first day of the Christmas season and the first day DJ tolerates me listening to Christmas music. More about our Christmas soon…
