Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Ours was nice. We went to Maggianos - holy cow!!! We have never been to a restaurant for Thanksgiving! They had a special menu everything was served family style on big plates. There was enough food for 4 people on each plate!! The meal started with bruschetta, then they had us pick two salads. We got to pick two meals - turkey with stuffing and ham with mashed sweet potatoes, two pasta dishes - ziti and ravioli, two sides - creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes, two desserts - pumpkin cheesecake and apple crostini. O M G the food was so good!! It was all you could eat while there and you got to take the stuff off your table home - we left with THREE bags of leftovers!!! Scott made a pumpkin pie. Our new stove has this silly feature that we are not used to - when you change the oven temp you have to hit start again or it wont change the temp! Scott baked his pie at 425 for an hour - it was still good!! The crust got a little dark but surprisingly the pie was OK!! Here is a picture of the braid I made - frosted!!
We were going to go to the movies last night but we were so full that I was sure there would be napping - we are going to go today when Scott gets off work (I came to work with him today hee hee) I was a terrible person yesterday - I am all for shops being closed on the holidays and say I wont shop but then I ate at a restaurant and on the way home I saw a Micheals and it was open!! I made Scott stop (I know I KNOW!! I'm the devil) I had run out of fiber fill for my sheep pillows (ugh I thought I was tired of stitching them - making them into 18 pillows uhhhhhhh) I ended up buying cute baskets for the pillows - a laundry basket - fiber fill and some thread! I don't really feel bad about it - I just hope they are getting great pay for coming in.
Speaking of pillows - here they are. I am now stitching the next sheep *sigh*
This week I finally got the entry painted and most of the banister stripped of paint - that was a disaster btw! That stripper goes everywhere and it's caustic. I even thought I had lost the cat because I had to open the front door because of the smell. I wont do that again. I thought I would get the fireplace room painted but I sure didn't (short week) maybe next week! I did iron every single one of Scott's shirts. The apartment made them all stink so I had to wash them. He likes them hung up so they don't shrink and lose color. The new washer spins those clothes around so much that they come out SUPER wrinkled and almost dry. I thought I could get all of them done in an hour or so - took 7 - SEVEN hours of ironing!!! At least it's done - funny part is I don't want him wearing any of them now ha!
The box I was painting last week - got it painted and distressed - that was so much fun!!
