Food, football, shopping, parade = ONE FANTASTIC WEEKEND! Whew! As you can see, I have been away from my computer for a few days. So, I will give you all a quick recap of my weekend and then I promise to make my rounds through blogland!
I hope this Monday evening finds everyone well and rested from the long weekend for those who celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday. We spent our Thanksgiving this year at my Mom's home who lives about 7 miles from our home. Not only did we enjoy a scrumptious turkey and the works dinner, but we also took a nice walk and ended our evening watching Disney's family movie, Up. Thanks to mom for all her hard work slaving in the kitchen. She did a wonderful job and it was very much appreciated!
Did any of you go out shopping on Black Friday? Well, I did. I joined my galfriend, Joelle at the break of dawn and we shopped til' we dropped until 3 o'clock. For me, it is such a rush getting out there in the hustle and bustle of the shopping madness. There really are good deals, and lots and lots of nice salespeople to help you find what you need. It was fun! I am already thinking about going out at midnight next year! How bout it Joelle?
What was next? Oh yes, we attended the town of Westminster, MD's Christmas parade on Saturday evening. My youngest daughter had the pleasure of riding on the back of my FIL's Harley Davidson Softail Deluxe in the parade. She was thrilled and I was impressed by the 40+ floats, each one brightly lit with colorful lights and shiny decorations. Santa and Mrs. Claus made an appearance too! It was a well attended parade and a wonderful memory for my daughter.
And last but not least, to top off our fantastic weekend......drumroll please.....we went to the Ravens vs. Steelers football game on Sunday evening!! Hubby and I were one of the lucky ones to be invited by my SIL who had 4 sky box AND field pass tickets!! Did you watch the game? If you did, then you know that the Ravens rallied in the fourth quarter and beat the Steelers 20-17 in overtime! Woot! There is nothing like watching the game from a luxury sky box complete with a private bathroom, good eats, cold beer and a bird's eye view of the field. The evening certainly was special and I thank my SIL for an A-W-E-S-O-M-E time!
At this moment, my eyes are so heavy and tired, as I am only functioning on a few hours of sleep. So, I will leave you all with some photos from the game. Night all.
