Weekend WrapUp

What up?!!

How was Thanksgiving? I am proud to announce that we found somewhere to eat. We actually had dinner with my god-mother and god-brother. Seeing that I have little family it is always good to spend time with them. They remind me that I have people who care for me here in Atlanta since the rest of my immediate family is in DC and my dad is in Las Vegas. I mean my husband has family here but you know what I mean.

I digress.

Well part of the arrangement was that I come and do the majority of the prepping and cooking. I am slowly developing a love of cooking and I can do a little something but not that old school Thanksgiving cooking so I was happy to get some direction. My mama was the best cook EVER. Yet instead of learning I was out running the streets…true story. Now that I am older I need to know these things and I am thankful to have a stand in to teach me. I am excited to try out what I learned. We just may have Thanksgiving dinner on a random day in January…y’all are invited!!

God bro and I taking a cooking break. Yeah, I cut onions in sunglasses #toocoolforschool

I did manage to remember one of my mothers recipes for sweet potato pie and I made it. She would’ve been proud of me.

I passed on Black Friday festivities. I DID!! Wanna know why? Both of our cars were on E and I wasn’t in the mood to pump gas, at midnight, in the cold, in the name of shopping. Nawl. I passed.

The family and I did venture out on Saturday to do some shopping. Mr. doesn’t shop much but he needed some things so we all rode along. I went hoping to get some stuff and the kids just wanted an Auntie Annie’s pretzel…its the small things.

Ridin’ around and gettin’ it

Sunday, I hit up the thrift store and found a few things. Nothing too fantastic but I did score a brand new pair of wedge boots. I found some oxfords and some slacks, necessary basics so I would say my trip was good. I am going to get back to doing my videos. My webcam is awful, I just ordered a new camera that has video capability so you will start to see more videos in the new year.

How was your Thanksgiving? Any Black Friday action for you?

    I ’bout hollered when I saw the photo of you cutting onions in sunglasses! Glad you are getting into the “cooking thing.” Yes, your Mama would be proud. I hope you are still working from her recipe book. That’s all the info you need right there. Maybe you can put some of your skills to the test soon. I’m gonna need a few meals when I bring the baby home *wink* Lurve you xo

    I ventured out to Walmart just to see what was going on on Black Friday but didn’t buy anything. I’ve only done Black Friday once and it’s safe to say I don’t enjoy the crowd. By the way that pie looks scrumptious.
