Hello blog world! This is Liz, you know, the one who used to blog on a semi-regular basis and then went MIA for a super long time, because well basically I’m on the computer 8+ hours a day as it is and usually all I want to do after work is come home and be as far from productive as humanly possible. But lately I’ve been feeling like I miss blogging, because when I don’t blog myself, I tend to not read my friends’ blogs, and so now I feel completely out of the loop. What kind of amazing craft project has Abby whipped up this time? What in the world does Anna’s baby look like now? Has Lynn worn her bacon and eggs costume lately? I have no idea!! And that is unacceptable. Plus now that my poor mother has been relocated across the state because of Dad’s new job, I’m sure she’d like another excuse to check up on me. 🙂 Whew! Okay now on to the actual blog.
Again, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all ate way too much, took lots of naps, enjoyed family, and watched lots of football. Branden and I packed our stuff and headed up to Fairfield, Texas to visit his dad and stepmom (Ernie and Paula) up at the farm. It was a great trip! Fairfield is stinkin gorgeous, (trees, rolling hills, cattle, and actual stars at night), and Ernie’s cooking can keep up with Paula Deen any day. (Please wait a moment while I remember the fried turkey… Mmmmm)
We slept in the Y2K hut, slept late every morning, ate like kings, watched the Aggies BTHO t.u. (WHOOP!!), went for walks around the farm (these photos are all from one of our walks), played with Lucy the coon hound, drove to the “big town” of Corsicana to see the new “Tangled” movie (super cute!), took several naps, went to a flee market, and basically just took it easy for three days. It was wondermous.
Branden would like me to mention how happy he is that we beat those dirty T-sips. Notice the shirt he wore on Thanksgiving day.
Now we just have to make it four more weeks until Christmas vacation. (If you get the whole week off before Christmas then I’m not speaking to you. That includes my teacher friends. I’m sorry, I love you, but that’s just the way it is.) But the next several weeks should go by pretty quickly, considering how busy the Christmas season is, not to mention that I really need to get on the ball and buy Christmas presents for everyone. Oh, crap, I still have to buy Christmas presents for everyone. I gotta go.
