Gosh, what is there to say about Thanksgiving? It was loud. It was wonderful. Aurelia is a friggin’ doll. My family cooks awesome food. Wine is delicious. So is beer. My family is super fun. I made three pans of roasted broccoli, and it all got eaten. #winning (Happy, Ty?)
I stayed over at my parent’s house on Thanksgiving night, and we tried to watch The Muppet Christmas Carol but fell asleep soon into the show and decided to call it a night.
The next morning, I woke to coffee and Aurelia in pajamas. Holidays are way more fun with a kid around.
My family and I are not Black Friday shoppers, but we love thrifting, so we decided to make a day of it. My aunt Dina, Mom, her friend Debbie, my friend Shelby and I headed to Sheboygan to scope out as many resale shops as we could find. My mom’s friend Debbie knows where every resale shop in Wisconsin is, so we followed her lead and discovered some great finds.
For lunch, we headed to Qdoba, a Mexican grill similar to Subway, where they make the food in front of you and it’s ready in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.
I ordered a Naked Vegetarian Taco Salad with corn salsa, pico, cheese, beans, guacamole and sour cream. It was really tasty and incredibly filling. Cheap, too! And I loved that they weren’t stingy with the guacamole, which is always the best part.
We also shared some house-made chips made with lime juice and salt.
After we’d been to six or so places and I’d scored circular knitting needles, a cool casserole dish, and some cute clothes, we headed to Manitowoc for a coffee. We decided on a place called Wrap It Up, a place my mom frequents sometimes for lunch with delicious wraps and paninis.
We had such a fun day. It was way better than standing in line at a Walmart for a flat screen TV.
I made the two hour drive back home and was really excited when I remembered it was only Friday. Four day weekends are the best.
Hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving!
