It's Alive!

Hellooooo??? Is any body out there??? Yes, I'm here and YES I know, it's been far too long since I've written. Thanksgiving weekend was packed with fun and excitement, so much so that I threw my back out and have spent the last three days in bed. Ugh. I'm feeling somewhat better today (despite the nagging thoughts of how much crap needs to get done around here) but I still plan to take it easy.

So how about a recap?

Thanksgiving dinner was fab! (ha ha don't you love the can shaped cranberry sauce? My DH doesn't like when I slice it!) I'm totally patting myself on the back for this one. lol I did most of the cooking and left the heavy lifting to Nine and Louie. Everything came out hot and on time. Later this week I'll share the recipe for slow cooker corn bread casserole. It's divine!

Nine and I waiting for the train to head into Manhattan for some holiday cheer.

We spent hours in Macy's looking at the jewelry and oogling the ornaments. Here are just a few examples of the gorgeous trees set up in the Macy's in Herald Square:

And talk about a small world! While waiting in a long line to make a purchase I started chatting with the girls behind me. Turns out they were from Towson State University and had marched in the Macy's Thanksgiving parade! I'm from Baltimore (which is where Towson State is located) and to run into them among the millions of people visiting the big apple is just too funny.

Let's see if I get this right: from the left - Sloane, Courtney, Christie and Christina. I think! I gave the girl's my blog address and hope they stop by to see their photo. :)

And that's me in Bryant Park trying to soak up all the fun I could. It was a fabulous weekend! Now if only my back would heal completely so I can get a move on all the things that are piling up over here. Wish me luck!
