belated friendsgiving

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

I landed in Atlanta from my amazing trip to LA at 10pm on Monday, Jan 20 - and my flight to Florida for work left at 10am on Tuesday, Jan 21. Needless to say I was exhausted and starting to feel like I was catching a cold. Not a good combo! The two hours I saw Adam and Ruthie before I left again, I'm pretty sure I wasn't the most pleasant person to be around.

My work trip to Florida was fine - it's always fun to see the people I work with down there, but the cold I thought I was getting escalated pretty quickly. I was able to pull it together on Wednesday night, when PB Steak hosted a Happy Hour that benefited Share Our Strength..

They donated 50% of the proceeds from their signature cocktail to Share Our Strength and named it "Orange You Glad You Donated" - too cute!


On Thursday morning, I accidentally took NyQuil instead of Mucinex. Needless to say, my cold had started affecting my brain. I somehow made it through the day, but slept for 12 hours that night. Much needed! I could have cried when I landed in Atlanta on Friday evening - I don't think I've ever been so happy to be home!

On Saturday, Adam worked in the morning and I spent a small fortune at CVS to try to get rid of my cold. We spent the rest of the day on the couch - exciting day!

Shortly after Thanksgiving, Adam bought a turkey fryer on sale and has been dying to use it. While sitting on the couch all day on Saturday, he decided to have a Fried Turkey party on Sunday afternoon (lucky for him, I woke up Sunday feeling slightly human again). I like to call it our very belated Friendsgiving! We had a good little group of people attend (shocking, since it was so last minute!).

Oh, yeah. Adam also spent all day Sunday burning leaves in our backyard.

The boys congregated around the turkey while the ladies stayed in the kitchen. How old school.

The finished product - yum!

We finished the night with s'mores!
