Oh god, I swear I'm back! This time I mean it. The problem is that I am living and breathing these damn photos from the road trip. I am sick to death of looking at them. I have absolutely nothing else going on or I really would be blogging.
I did have a small break from the photos to go up to my family's for Thanksgiving. It was the first Thanksgiving without my aunt, but we still drank our 3 or 4 bottles of champagne in her honor...and then moved on to the hard stuff. I swear I never drink unless my family is involved. And yes it's because of them, they keep sticking the drinks in my hand. Mario and I also learned that we liked Gin and Tonics this Thanksgiving...I'll be thankful for that. Mario drinks even less than I do, yet he had a couple Gin and Tonics while with my family...it only took him three years to figure out it's easier to be drunk with them, then to try to figure them out.
It was a great weekend with lots of domino games and this other ridiculous game my sister brought. We're totally addicted to it. My sister's boyfriend yelled at my mom for not playing by the rules and left the game we were playing. Which in our drunk state was the funniest thing we had seen. He's been around for a few years but still has to learn that my mom will never play by the rules. Although after his outburst, she really tried not to play when it wasn't her turn. She's wasn't always successful of course.
We had prime rib instead of turkey. Then my mom proceeded to cook two after thanksgiving turkeys to make up for no turkey on thanksgiving. Then we hit black Friday for the first time in our family history. Don't worry we didn't jump in head first. We tiptoed in. Got to Old Navy at 10am. Scored some cheap cute clothes, went to lunch, and then hit up beverages and more.
Overall it was another drunk weekend with the family. Came home with some turkey, gin, new games and a super cute sweater. It was an awesome weekend.
Mom, Lindsay and Tim will be down for Christmas with Mario's mom and sister. I always feel so sorry for Mario's family when mom and Lindsay come to town. They're never ever really ready for the drunken tornado that appears when they come to town.
PS for those of you at my wedding, my mother tried denying yet again that she was drunk at my wedding. I allow all of you who were there to laugh your asses off now.
