Did you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving?? I Sure did!
We were hosted this year. It was allot of fun.
We were lucky enough to have my Mother Inlaw, my husband's Aunt Cindy her 2 daughters and my husband's Grammy.
The food was great, the people were great, and I had a yummy bottle of bubbly. What could be better?
My Mother Inlaw was kind enough to sleep over after dinner so My husband Steve and I could do the big BLACK FRIDAY Midnight Madness.
Did the stores open at 12am where you live?
Oh MAN it was crazy! I have never been a Black Friday Shopper... but this year we were curious what the hoopla was all about.
We got some good deals... but I have to say NOT worth pulling an all nighter after I had just slaved for days in the kitchen and cleaning my house preparing for Thanksgiving.
I'm burnt out big time this morning..... I feel like I was up all night doing shots and keg stands.
But my hangover is not for drinking..... just pure sleeplessness.
Do you get like that with sleep deprivation?
I feel sick to my stomach, food sounds gross, pounding headache and no amount of coffee will help!!!
Anyways....... here's a quick recipe post while I'm home nursing my Black Friday Hangover!
