How was your Thanksgiving? It went by fast! This year didn’t feel like Thanksgiving for me because normally we would do my side of the family today but we are on day 17 in the hospital for my dad and it seems like we take one step forward only to take two steps back.
Wednesday morning I got out the door early for a Trader Joe’s run and saw these adorable olive oil bowls for $5.99. Add a bottle of olive oil and that would make a great hostess gift!
I picked up a few necessities and some easy meals to have on hand because I didn’t know what the weekend would hold.
Then, I picked my mom up at my house (she is staying with me because my parents live an hour away and my dad was transported to my big city hospital from their hometown hospital after one day) and took her to a hair appointment. I did my nails in the car while waiting.
I took my mom to the hospital after her hair appointment and then met this lovely coworker at her suggestion for some stress relief. We may have taken advantage of their $10 bottomless sangria, ham and chicken croquettes, and patatas bravas. Yum. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are local.
Wednesday night my family of four went to Royals Hot Chicken before the hospital. Again, I highly recommend!
Thanksgiving morning and my mom and I did a Starbuck’s run before the hospital. I so appreciate all of the hospital workers that keep things going on a holiday. It’s not easy I know.
My sister and her family were at the hospital so I went home and had an apple cider mimosa while cooking for hub’s side of the family here in town.
The sun was bright and it was a super nice day. This is what I ended up wearing.
Two of my beautiful nieces.
Their beautiful mama, my sister in law, in her cute outfit. Tom Petty t-shirt she found on Etsy and her leopard flats. I felt it was blog worthy!
It was a nice day.
Are you participating in Black Friday Sales? I’m more of a Cyber Monday girl!
Have a great weekend!
