I ended up coming home Thursday during the day opposed to Wednesday night. I walked in the house right as dinner was finishing up. We had pumpkin soup as a starter and then turkey, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, an apple/butternut squash concoction, sausage stuffing, cranberry sauce, Cope's corn, and roasted broccoli and carrots. Everything was fantastic.
That night, my niece slept over. I had an awesome sleepover party with a four year old. We watched all sorts of Christmas movies (Grinch, Frosty, Rudolph) and then had "girl talk in bed." I don't think she fell asleep until like Midnight. I was shocked that a four year old would stay up that late.
Friday morning, I woke up and made my niece breakfast and we hung out for the day. Then I got sick :-(. The four year old got me sick. So I've basically been in bed ever since.
So here is a brief list of things I'm thankful for:
- Benjamin :-)
- Awesome friends
- Amazing bridesmaids who are always willing to help!
- Great future in-laws
- A job that I love
- My lovely apartment that feels oh-so-homey
