It been a fun week. Christine was here for a really relaxing and fun visit last week. She and I did venture out to the Galleria to hit Zara's, which is pretty much a must for anyone in their 20's and 30's. I can see why my girls love it so much. Other than that, we kept it pretty low key. Christine and I did take lots of pictures for a blog post on Runza's, but I can't get them off of the camera. Hmmmmmm. Need to figure that out. Still working on it.
On Wednesday, Louise flew in and we jumped into full Thanksgiving mode, making a pecan pie. We were up early for a quick breakfast and then the big food prep. Even though there were only 3 of us here to eat it, we went ahead and made all the favorites, just in smaller portions. Yum! We ate early enough that we were able to heat up some leftovers by late in the evening. Thursday, Friday, and most of today (Saturday) will be taken up with football games. Louise and I do plan to sneak out to a movie this afternoon. It is time to get out of the house! And if we see an open parking spot at the mall, we may even brave that for a bit. Somewhere in the mix, Louise needs to finish reading a book on Shakespeare and write a paper. Ugh!
Oh, and we did start decorating for Christmas. I enjoy Thanksgiving so much that I wouldn't want to decorate for Christmas until that day is complete, but now I am in the mood. It is even cold here in Texas, which makes it that much better. Hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are looking forward to all the preparations for Christmas.
As a side note, Cookie and Pepper are officially SPOILED. Two weeks with Christine and Louise and they are convinced they are royalty and our couches are their thrones.
