Thanksgiving Week

Well, the two weeks are over and as of today I’m back at work.  This was officially our best vacation of all time.  You guys already know that San Francisco was wonderful and the past week visiting family in Ohio has been great as well.  I didn’t want to take away any family time on snapping pictures, so I don’t have much to share about Thanksgiving.  Instead, here are ten things about last week…

{1} We had to drive forever and a day to get to Piqua to visit my grandma.  We packed some truly ridiculous car snacks.

{2} My grandma is a fantastic cook and she made us some great meals.

{3} She also introduced us to Basils on Market, a fun restaurant that served me a Tres Leches White Russian and cheese-stuffed gnocchi.

{4} We also got tasty coffee at Winans a few times.  Adam was in love.

{5} But I preferred the iced latte with toasted marshmallow that I got at Sheetz.

{6} From my grandma’s we went to my brother-in-law’s for Turkey Day.  It was so much fun to catch up with everyone, including our three nieces!  Dinner was quite yummy.  Adam and I brought wine, red and white, from Sonoma.

{7} For the first time ever, we did some Black Friday shopping.  Barely.  I needed to buy new bras and I planned to go on Saturday originally but then I felt silly going to the mall the day after the sales.  We went late in the day when it wasn’t too crowded and I scored 4 new bras with a BOGO 50% off sale.

{8} Another long day of driving later, and we were home for round 2 of turkey, stuffing, cranberries, and pumpkin pie – Boulder Canyon’s Thanksgiving Feast in a Bag.

{9} We had beers with our chips.  Coney Island Brewing sent me their newest seasonal flavor, The Plunge, a Belgian-style ale brewed with ginger, orange peel, and fennel.  We were fans.  I’m not always into Belgian ales but this was nice and light.

{10} Best thing of all: we’re finally back with our man!
