Back in Blog World

I feel like it's been a sweet forever I blogged last! I sat down last night with the intentions of doing a post but then I got caught up reading all your blogs and it just got too late.

Thanksgiving was wonderful. We spent most of the day at my parents with my side of the family. I love, love, love getting together with my family. And of course, I seriously ate too much.

It's a good thing my mom always goes above and beyond with the food makin' because I royally screwed up the homemade macaroni & cheese. I have no idea what happened. I mean, I followed the recipe but it was so bad, I couldn't even attempt to take it. I thought about taking it just to feed to my brother's dogs, but I was afraid they wouldn't eat it and then I would hear about it for the rest of my life from my brother-in-law.

We left my parent's house late Thursday afternoon and drove to Montgomery to Maxwell Air Force Base. Jay's family spent the Thanksgiving weekend there because his dad is retired military. I had never stayed on a base before and it was so cool. I mean really cool. (I thought about you Paulina!) I tell you, being there really made me so much more thankful for our military men and women.

I'm glad to be back to my bloggy world! I'm thankful for ya'll too!

Welcome back! Just yesterday I was watching Everyone Hates Chris (which I've never seen before) and poor little Chris fell asleep and burned the homemade thanksgiving Macaroni and Cheese. It was a tragedy for their family as well. Maybe you can redeem yourself at Christmas?

Funny. I burnt 2 boxes of mac and cheese last week but totally redeemed myself on Friday when I made homemade mac and cheese and it was SCRUMPTIOUS. Did Nedra make some beef tips over noodles? You know I love me some beef tips over noodles. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving :)

yay sweetie pie... you're back!!!

(I couldn't make a homemade mac and cheese fit to eat to save my soul... and I can make about anything... I just never seem to find a good recipe!!!!)

Glad you had fun!

Jill said...

Oh no, poor macaroni & cheese. :) I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving. I ate waaay too much too.

Your chicken cheese ball more than made up for the mac and cheese.

airforce bases are the best!!!!!!!!!! how lucky are you???? I've never been to Maxwell, is it nice? The airforce base in Charleston is pretty sweet, it has just about everything. pool, gym, shops, restaurants, beautiful homes, gold course, the works. I wish our little base had the works :)

So glad you had a great thanksgiving!!!!! I am sorry that I laughed at your mac n cheese disaster. Reminds me of when i was trying to 'woo' Mr. Mans before we got married. I made bacon for him and it was burnt so bad that my own dog wouldn't eat it (I mean, and my dog eats underwear!!!! hahah!!!) It was so embarrassing.
