THIS IS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2014!
A fully documented day after Thanksgiving. A trip to the park, more dogs than usual, and of course lots of food-pix. Enjoy!
Woke up from my post-Thanksgiving turkey coma. Was very happy to semi-sleep in.
First face I see in the morning. Usually it’s Tubby when I’m at home – but alas Tweedy and Tubby are at war.
Pups get put with Yoko in her little clubhouse with pee pads and food.
Okay, Tubby! You can come out!!!!!
The coffee pot is always runneth over.
Set up my cuddle spot on the couch
Sufi quickly makes himself right at home
Mama is very proud of her nearly-done pot holder gift set.
Tweedy is proud of himself after peeing in approximately 500 places.
Special cheese toast and grapes for breakfast! Thanks, ma!
Peep into parent’s room (aka cat’s clubhouse)
Both of them are shoving their faces into the food dish
Once you find that comfy suit you gotta stick to it
My favorite LUSH face wash – who doesn’t want their face smelling like polenta and/or popcorn
Took some photos of the family we spent Thanksgiving with for them to keep. Did a quick edit and sent them along.
They already think they own the house. Sitting in the classic cat spots.
Bangs definitely needed a bit of a trim.
There we go – a little snip snip
All while Sufi stares you down – all the pressure!
As I get ready to head out to my annual post-Thanksgiving picnic…
My dad cracks open a Spaten to match with the cup I got him from my trip to Munich
Little Totoro tail on my way out the door
We drop by Pavilions to grab a few things. The shop already has pine wreaths and things out front.
Two beers, one cake card, and a box of baby arugula (for later!)
Friends reunion! We calculated that this was the 5th or 6th picnic we’ve done at this park the day after Thanksgiving with high school friends.
And a lot of pups this year too!
We had 3 kinds of pumpkin pie this year. So. MUCH. PIE.
Tweedy just can’t handle all the food
Bust out Guillotine, a fun little game with minimal rules and set up.
You just have to kill as many nobles as possible! Simple.
Rachel struggling with her reading comprehension skills
“Oh you want to get a cheap massage with us later? Feels like this…”
Then the dogs adorably ran around
Tweedy tried to be a real dog…lolzz
Frisbee is thrown, books are read, laughs are had…
3 hours later! Dang. Didn’t feel like that much time had passed.
Change of clothes for my 3rd Thanksgiving meal…My mom got me this sweater from Kohl’s (thanks, ma!)
I pack my salad up and get ready to go.
Sorry, Tweedy! You don’t get to go to this one!
I drop by Lauren’s to give her her birthday present!
I see you on the phone!! Let me in!
Iris and Michael are busy setting the table! I’m here a bit early to shoot some of Iris’s paintings.
I forgot my tripod back at my apartment *dooooof* so we used the ladder as a makeshift shelf. It worked out!
All done! Time to get all the food ready to go.
Waiting for the other guests to arrive!
Brie and crackers yes PUHLEEEZE
I get all my ingredients in the salad bowl
Kiki making the baked brie (or rather preppin’ it)
Iris shouting some encouragement to the baked brie
Masterchef Tim carving the turkey
Megan finally arrives! The guests are all here!
Perfect timing, the brie is out
Pecan pie makes its appearance!
Move the party to the living room
Getting ready for a tough game of Scattergories
Scattergories is a very enlightening game
Kiki and Michael do a head-to-head 2 list square off for second place. Turns out they tied again.
Oh Yoko. That doesn’t even look comfortable.
SO. MUCH. FOOD.
Much love friends.
