Turkey Wrap It Up

Thanksgiving came and went. I thought I would be a pig but I decided to wear these jeans that were a little tight thinking it would detour me from gorging myself. It only caused my muffin to bulge a little more to make the button on my pants dig into my stomach and make for an uncomfortable ride home from my mothers. Way to go reverse psychology. Loser!

But it was a good day considering my situation and I have so much to be thankful for. So, I wrapped up the holiday with four days off from work which seemed to not be long enough and got into the holiday spirit.

Friday kicked off the decorating of the tree. I love my tree. It always makes me happy for the season. It's a hodgepodge tree and I have a whole story about it, but that's for later. I also love my little reindeer, Ralphie, Finn and Hazel. I will beat a dawg down over these little fellas. They are my DON'T TOUCH just look decor.

Then Saturday night was topped off by a good ole fashion dance party. That's right. I love a good dance party. When Ian was even smaller I would play CD's and we would dance like crazy just randomly. I can remember swinging him through my legs like we were at a good sock hop. My cousin Rachel and her kids came to the slumber party, it was great fun. Well, all except four screaming, eventually fighting kids proved to be maddening. But I wouldn't trade it for the world.

That's right. Moves Like Jagger. My cousin ran out and bought Just Dance 3 for $7.99 at Best Buy. She and I decided to do the LMFAO Party Rock Anthem and by the time we got done I thought I needed to shuffle to the ER. We high fived each other for making it all the way through it and collapsed. I made my famous bread bowl. It was delish and that little turkey was made with love. 

All and all it was a great holiday. So great in fact I thought I would let you see for yourself the moves on these kids. Here's a little Funkytown. It's only a minute long. Enjoy!


Hope your festivities were splendid! Bring on the Santa baby!

  8. I used to love dance parties. But now I can't even do one move without breaking a sweat or more importantly, hurting my hip, ha. Don't worry, I still often try and my husband will stand there and laugh at me.

    I'm so glad you had a wonderful weekend! :)

  17. So fun!!! True story, I'm not smart enough to play Just Dance. Like my brain synapses don't fire properly for me to connect what is happening on the screen to what my body should do. It's a hoot and a half.
