Long Weekend Partytime

This was a fun weekend because there were lots of out of town guests! We decided to meet up at Casa Nueva for some margaritas. After some good fun there we headed across the street to Tony's! There were a lot of townies in for the Thanksgiving Weekend. There isn't much to report, but we took some pictures!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I had a fabulous Thanksgiving this year! We celebrated at my sister's new house. Photos coming soon. The day was great from the minute I woke up. I woke up to my cell phone ringing, it was my sister telling me it was time for PANCAKES! Whole wheat pancakes with bananas and walnuts. YUM. Then I helped Renee make egg nog (mostly I just watched), and went home for a bit.

Then Adam and I returned for dinner at 4. Mer has this Thanksgiving tradition where she, Beth, and Renee (and their SO's) take turns hosting Thanksgiving. This year it was in Athens. Also, Mom and Dad and Kaleb came. We had turkey, and all the side dishes, AND pork. This was the best pork I had ever had in my life! The marinade was basil, cilantro, ginger, saki, soy sauce and heavy cream. YUM. We played a little bit of Dance Dance Revolution. Mostly we all hung out until about 1in the morning.

When I was little, my favorite thing to do at Thanksgiving time was to make a bird's eye view drawing of the Pilgrims and Indians at their Thanksgiving Feast. Feeling nostalgic, I made one this year!

The Last Unicorn

Hahah look what Suzanne and Anne BOTH got me for my birthday this year!!! Luckily, I got mine from Suzanne just after Anne had ordered hers (and I emailed her "ANNE!! Look what Suzanne got me!!!!!!!") so she was able to stop the order. But it was hilarious, I guess I'm predictable?:

The Golden Cock

Adam plays football on Friday afternoons, and every week the guys choose the person who did the best that day, and they get to take home The Golden Cock, the athlete of the week trophy. Adam got to be The Golden Cock this week!

And then these are some pictures that Adam took of Charlie. Charlie wants to be a rock star!!!

Dance Dance Revolution!

Tonight, Mer, Pete and I went over to Mike and Jessica's house and played Dance Dance Revolution for the first time. It was SO FUN. I think I might seriously need to own it. Here's Mer and Jessica getting down:

I can't believe he lost.

It's so depressing. I went to an election night party last night. There was a lot of good energy in the air, as well as some seriously good chili. The kind where you take spaghetti and put chili, grated cheddar and oyster crackers on top. So yeah, the party was fun, but it sure isn't fun that Bush won. Check out this sign that my friend Craig made for the party:

Here's dad rocking out on the guitar. They played some good music last night:
