Impromptu Thanksgiving


I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving went well. The family and I were set to head to my hometown Washington D.C. for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, after I picked Lil Mama up from spending the weekend with her godmother she was really sick. Once we got back home, I realized she was running a fever and had an extremely nasty cough and a ton of congestion. Called the Dr. to see if I could give her anything, he heard her couging through the phone and told me to take her to the Urgent Care.

Off we go, it was like a club up in there, poor sick babies were everywhere. After two hours of waiting we were seen, and Lil Mama was diagnosed with two ear infections, bronchialitis and NO TRAVEL! Oh well, Lil Mama is more important so I called the Mr. and told him our travel plans were grounded and I was going to drop her home and head to the store to get food for Thanksgiving.

Bwahahaha..he shut that idea down. Y’all know I don’t cook, I was willing to try but he stated Thanksgiving is not the time to experiment. I got on the phone, made some calls and found us a spot to crash for Thanksgiving. The food, and company was awesome. I wasn’t required to cook anything, but I volunteered to do all of the cleaning, that was the least I could do!

Black Friday we headed to the outlets not far from my house..you know you live deep in the burbs when the outlet is 20 minutes from your house. I got some good deals on clothes for the babies, but me not so much. The Mr. stood in line for 1 hour and 30 minutes for ONE Polo sweatsuit that turned out to be too small #men. We left about 3a and I thought I would be heading to Target or Walmart and instead opted for my bed, too much. I don’t think I will be participating next year, just a bunch of hype, too many people and aggravation.

I started on my Christmas mantle, just need to grab some garland with the lights in it and a few finishing touches from Ikea to finish it off and I will show you all the finished product some time this week.

Enough about me..how was your Thanksgiving and Black Friday adventures? How are your Christmas decorations if any coming along?

  1. I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my fam sans the hubby because he had to work. Even during the holidays somebody has to protect and serve the community. I just wish didn't have to be him. Still I was glad to skip out on all the Black Friday craziness and snuggle up in bed with him and Moo.

    Having worked in retail and studied Fashion Merchandising in college, I already know that Black Friday is just a haux to get consumers to spend hundreds of bucks by tricking them into believing they're getting some great deals when they're really not. Horrible practice, but it's funny how people who don't know the truth keep falling for it. I was surprised that he actaully put up the Christmas tree by himself.

    He was so proud of the great job he had done decorating it. (Pictures coming to my blog soon). Next on my decorating list is to get some signs for yard and some window clings.

  2. Awe, lil mama is so cute! *tears* @ the ear infection, I've been hoping & praying my son doesn't get one because he is cranky enough w/o it! lol

  3. I hope Lil Mama is feeling better! And I hope you were able to get some rest!
    Thanksgiving was good! I love being home and eating good food! I do NOT go out on Black Friday! I did that last year and it was awful! I wanted to shoot myself in the head! Too many people and the deals were not that great! I did my shopping online! Almost finished!
