Thanksgiving Week Recap


We made it back safely from a week in suburban Chicago, and while I promised I'd blog, I am pretty busy today, so this will be brief.  Awesome, as always, but brief.  heehee
 I was so happy to be able to spend the better part of one day with my mom, we goofed off and shopped a little. One of our favorite stops is always The Little Traveler in Geneva, we have been going there for 100 years together.  Ok, since I was 11, so more like 26 years.  We always end up regretting not buying more!
She took me to a new (new to me!) restaurant on the way home and we had the yummiest tapas; skirt steak tacos and corn with lemon-aioli.  I would drop the name of the place, except it is so tiny and hard to get a table as it is... Fact is I also had a yummy mojito, but...I deserved some day drinking. 
  

 It's been said that I am a little overprotective of my boys, and rightfully so.  However, I made the executive parenting decision to allow them to see Skyfall (we saw Wreck It Ralph the night before).  I love Bond movies, and my research told me that this one was probably ok for them. Admittedly, I missed probably 15 minutes of the movie because I covered my eyes a few times, but they boys were riveted.  I know I will get some flack from some of you uber conservative moms for taking a 4th and 6th grader to it...but you know what?  Long hair, don't care.  I kid, I kid.  Of course I care what you think.  Kind of.  Maybe not really. Eve Moneypenny and I, well we are sort of independent thinkers like that.  I have never touched a gun, so I am pretty sure she's a better shot than I am, but she's got nothing on my parallel parking or table setting skills.


The cousins are finally all of the age where they can be left to their own devices without the threat of disaster.  They played some four square and heaven knows what else.  None of them were very happy to part ways, that I can assure you. 

Saturday's Clemson v Carolina game.  Ugh.  No words, but I made good with my Gamecock friend and we went for Sunday mani/pedis.  Our friendship was only divided for 4 hours, things are delightfully (and well polished) back to normal.
Sunday I put up the majority of the Christmas decorations and rewarded myself with the first margarita of the Christmas season.  Caught up on 2 shows on the DVR (the Thanksgiving Happy Endings episode was a disappointment, FTR) and watched a quarter of the Packers game.  That's how I roll these days. 

Happy Monday Sweets, gotta scoot!

I say you know your kids best and if you feel the movie is appropriate for them then it's fine :)

Hubs and I are going to see Skyfall this weekend. I'm excited!

Loyal reader of your blog :) I have been to the little travler...very pretty, but it overwhelmed me a tiny bit! Have you been to the perfect setting? Cute stuff in there. I live in Naperville! ALSO....did I read that you watched the Packers?!? I was raised in Milwaukee, having moved here to IL a year ago....so I am a big Packer fan;)
