Yes- you read that right. Multiple Thanksgivings to celebrate this year as I spent Thursday with Justin’s family and Saturday with mine. Here’s some of the snapshots I got while hanging out with everyone…
Justin and I got ready Thursday morning in our best autumn-colored Thanksgiving attire & got a few photos in before heading to one of his family members’ house for the big meal (:
He wore his favorite mustard overshirt on top of a cream, cable knit sweater with jeans and crepe boots. I chose my rust-colored joggers to go with a sparkly sweater accompanied by my olive jacket and favorite fuzzy boots!
We arrived a bit before 2, but just as Justin’s parents and brother got there. We went inside with our 6-packs of Redd’s apple ale and Henry’s hard grape soda. After greeting all the family, we settled in and met all the animals too! They had two doggos outside, one inside, a cute kitty, and a bunch of birds as well (: I had to get a picture of Justin next to his brother to show how tall he is for only being 12 ^ at the end of the evening, one of the older ladies there asked if Justin & I were married. We both took that as a huge compliment, but informed her we aren’t just yet. It was very sweet though…
My man looking completely gorgeous ^
Black Friday we spent working, but went out for a late night bite at Carytown burgers & fries for the first time. It was super yummy even though I don’t get much else on my burger besides ketchup and extra pickles. We enjoyed our food, the atmosphere, and our time there in general (:
Saturday morning started with French toast ^ it took me a while to make between adding more cinnamon & nutmeg to the dipping mixture and using two types of bread (he doesn’t really like the texture of the gluten-free bread I eat). But it turned out really well if I do say so myself! After those, I made blueberry & lemon gluten-free scones to bring along that afternoon.
We ended that day with a gathering at my dad’s with his side of the family which included my grandparents, his sister and her family, and of course my own sisters. My dad told me it started at 4, but I found out (much too late) that people would be arriving at 1 and we were going to be eating at 4. I’d say he’s not so great with communication, but I think he was just flustered for an answer cause he hasn’t really hosted anything solo before. It was still a really fun evening with everyone ^ that’s my sister who’s recently engaged! We all had our fill of tasty Thanksgiving foods, desserts, and drinks. We brought along a bottle of red sangria that was almost empty by the end of the night. Dad broke out the peach pie moonshine from PA for me cause it’s delicious! Everybody that tried the scones seemed to like them or was polite enough not to say otherwise haha and everyone sort of filed out family by family til it was just us left. We said our goodbyes and headed home at around 8 cause we both had to get up early for work the following morning.
How was your holiday? Did you have to work Black Friday or were you scanning the stores and websites for deals? (: hope everyone had safe travels. I have my follow-up appointment from my endoscopy tomorrow and I should be posting my November favorites relatively soon!
