Turkey Day weekend

We had quite a busy Thanksgiving weekend. We spent the holiday with my family and it was a great time. The food was excellent and everyone was in a great mood. My brother came down from RI and his wife is 21 weeks pregnant. He could not believe how huge my belly is. He hasn't seen me in about 3 months and he just kept touching it and going "Ree, you're HUGE, seriously huge! How do you fit that body anywhere". Gee thanks, Mike...once a big brother, always a big brother!!!

Friday was my baby shower for my side of the family. My Mom picked a great place to have it and the food and cake were fabulous! My family and friends were super-generous and they just couldn't give me enough hugs and say how excited they are to FINALLY meet our little guy. I'm not one to shy away from being the center of attention, so I enjoyed every minute of that day ;)



Then Saturday night we went to an engagement party for Ed's cousin. She and her fiance dated for like 8 years so everyone teases them about FINALLY getting engaged. Although, their wedding isn't for two more years. Apparently it will take her parents that long to save up and pay for the extravaganza they want.

Sunday I spent almost the whole day on the couch. I was so exhausted and dealing with terrible heartburn from the array of foods I splurged on for the three previous days. I have tons of leftover cake and I'm determined to eat it all before it goes stale...hee hee.

So it was a pretty great holiday weekend, but it has left me pretty tired...although not too tired to go shopping today and take part in some of the great deals going on. It's always a good shopping day when you come home with two pairs of shoes for the price of one!!!

Glad you had a great weekend.

The woman in the pic is my MIL....it is a long story, but in short we had a photo scavanger hunt for the table cameras. She got "someone under the table" and yes, there was wine involved.

It is actually one of my fav pics!

Maria,
Thanks for the "spring chicken" comment. I feel like that sometimes, but I think 60 is the new 40 and I am going with that.
I am glad you had a great time with your family. Every girl needs hugs and good wishes from those who have known her forever. And you deserve it. Enjoy the rest of your week.
Patty
