Catching Up With V: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving weekend! It started off with a run into Portland, but this picture was too cute not to post first! We took this picture on thanksgiving morning after we did our hair and makeup. We were in PJS until dinner. When dinner came around we got into nicer clothes.

Running in Portland was something I did before my dad picked my sister and I up. I had time and I was not going to wait in the car so I ran across the Hawthorne bridge. This is a picture of the city from the bridge! I am always going to love Portland. <3

First Thanksgiving I have spent with my dad since my parents divorce. Went to my dads house on Wednesday and will be going back Saturday! Thanksgiving was good for the most part. I'm not a big Thanksgiving person. I could care less for mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, rolls, and other goodies. Time spent together all day was more fun then eating dinner. We watched a lot of Jimmy Falon things on youtube click here for a video. We also... Actually I spent a lot of the time before dinner on my blog reading everyone's posts.

Black "Friday" was pretty fun. I was in need of jeans and yoga pants and found exactly that for an amazing price! If you're looking for good yoga pants that aren't as expensive as Nike's I recommend Old Navy active wear. THIS IS NOT A SPONSERED MESSAGE. I have been a happy buyer of Old Navy's active wear ever since it came out. Can't tell you how much I like their sports clothes. I might do a small black Friday haul post...maybe!

Friday the 27th was the day of my dads birthday. Pancakes were made in the morning for the birthday boy. We made so many heart and ice cream cone shaped pancakes. (We: My dad's girlfriend, her son, and my sister) The pancakes and eggs were a great start to the day! And hello, look at how cute they are. 

Before cake and presents, we all decided that going on a walk would be a great idea. It was chilly, but I got a chance to workout after doing nothing exercise wise on Thanksgiving. Our walk (my run) was way long. We got lost and spent a lot of time trying to figure out where to go. We made it back, and I feel like I am going to be sore tomorrow, thanks to all the mini hills! Good for me!

Dinner after our long walk (my run!) was great. That's all I have to say. I am amazing card maker if you can't tell. It was a good Thanksgiving week! Happy to have spent it with my dad even if the minion is kinda annoying. :) Little kids are cute. Sometimes. Grateful to spend time with my dad over Thanksgiving and his birthday. I think I said that already but who cares?

Hope everyone had an awesome thanksgiving. Let me know what you did in the comments!

Vanessa

  6. It sounds like you had a lovely time - something very much deserved!

    We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in England; though that doesn't mean to say that I can't watch all of the Thanksgiving-related episodes of Friends, in 'celebration'.
