it’s finally friday! i hope you had a lovely thanksgiving with your friends and family. me? i feel like i slept most of it haha. yesterday i slept in until 6:30 and watched a movie in bed while looking through my magazines and new southern cookbook (ever since nashville i’m obsessed) and then around 10:00 i started cooking for thanksgiving. i ended up making this awesome winter panzanella salad from smitten kitten (thanks friends for your recommendations!) and a delicious root veggie gratin from the latest issue of king arthur flour. we got to my parents at 12:45 ate lunch at 1:00 and then spent the afternoon watching a movie and sleeping on the couch, waking up for pie and hanging out. we headed home around 6pm (quickly swinging into the outlet mall) before crashing on the couch at 8:30. it’s the turkey i swear!
so now it’s black friday and i was already out and about town. i went to anthropologie (30% off everything), jb and me (30% off everything) and the brand new free people ( i was the first sale!) and then i headed to the mall to grab a venti giant coffee before checking out j.crew (40% off everything) and macys (50% off free people) and headed into work.
today i’m just working and then going to a griffins game tonight with some friends and then tomorrow it’s small business saturday so i’ll be at the shop for at least the morning. then the rest of the day i have joe all to myself so we are going to decorate for christmas! i started putting my trees up last weekend but i need to hang lights and ornaments and all that good stuff.
saturday night we are going out to dinner with some friends and probably going to itty bitty bar because they just launched their new winter menu. and sunday… probably more hibernating and decorating for christmas. we talked about taking a drive to pentwater but it will feel good to just be home!
i hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!0
