My boss was kind enough to allow me to extend my holiday weekend one extra day, so my weekend was from Wednesday though Sunday. Now that’s what I call a weekend.
Ahh, a day off. Erin and I ran around town taking care of a few errands in the rain before we headed down to my parents for a little Thanksgiving/Birthday meal.
Every year for the last several years my brother, Greg, and I have celebrated our birthday’s with the family the day before Thanksgiving. It’s become a nice little tradition that I’ve grown to really love. Not only do I get to have my mom’s turkey dinner for my birthday, but it makes it easier to split up the holiday with the in-laws.
Happy Birthday to me! After sleeping in a little, I opened my present from Erin before it was time to head over to the in-laws for Thanksgiving preparation and celebration. My present from Erin was a pair of the beauties you see above. They are Rainbow Mocca Loafs. Perfect for the Rainbow Sandal lover in all. Now I can, truely wear Rainbows year-round.
The rest of the day was full of eating, football and a little Rook.
Erin and I ran a few errands before heading out to Long Beach for a friend’s wedding. We had a great time.
We spent almost the entire day searching for Christmas lights for our house. They have to be just perfect, you know.
After our long day of shopping we sat down to watch some TV and discovered that we had HBO for free all weekend. That night we watch 8 of 10 episodes of HBO’s True Blood series. I won’t recommend the show to anyone, because of it’s graphic content, but we were hooked by the story line.
Went to Church, mowed the lawn, and hung Christmas lights on half the house before we went off to Group.
For group we wondered around the Americana in Glendale and saw the (fake) snow. It was pretty.
We spent the rest of the evening watching the remaining two episodes of True Blood and went to bed.
