Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

I'm back from New York after a fun week spent with the fam! What about you - did you have a good Thanksgiving?!

It was nice hanging out with everyone and it was nice relaxing on the East Coast but to be perfectly honest, my favorite part of the weekend was enjoying the cold weather. I finally got to wear a coat! It's still 70 degrees and perfectly warm in Los Angeles. #boo

I didn't take a ton of pictures this time around but I thought I'd share the few that I did take - apologies if you saw some of these already on Instagram...

When we first landed, we headed to the city for a couple days before heading to Long Island. After sleeping off the red-eye, Mommy and I walked to Eataly for lunch... but first she had to make a quick stop at every jewelry cart we passed by. Like a moth to a flame I tell you. There is literally no doubt who's child she is!

Speaking of children, I FINALLY got the chance to meet my dear friend Elianna's babies! Her twins are eight months old and they are adorable. I love babies so much.

Once I took the train into Long Island, I got to spend lots of time with my aunt, uncle, grandma, and cousins. My brilliant scholar of a cousin made this little shopping list - I couldn't help make fun of him :) Shortly after taking this picture I may have added a fifth item to the list - "A better eduk8shun." I crack myself up.

While we were crossing off those weird items from the list in Target, I spied the most amazing thing I've ever seen - my future child. Full out ROCKING those sunglasses and a tiny leopard fur cape, I shit you not when I say I almost kidnapped her. She was literally SASHAYING down the center aisle of Target like she owned the place!!!

My contribution to the Thanksgiving meal? I made stuffing based on this recipe - it was DELICIOUS! I'll definitely be making it again next year. I was also assigned the task of setting the tables for our 20+ guests - here is my little tableau mid-set up!

We truly had a bountiful feast - turkey, brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, two kinds of stuffing, sweet potato casserole, macaroni & cheese, cornbread, cranberry sauce... and everything was delicious. Props to the chefs - here they are posing by the buffet!

Here are the Silverman ladies before diggin' in! I am so thankful for them :)

The night before we flew home, Bailey and I went with my cousin and his girlfriend (hi Michele!) out for a night of bowling! It was seriously so fun. I love spending time with my sister one-on-one with no boyfriends, cell phones, or other distractions :)

All in all, a very nice trip indeed :) Now I will try and enjoy the next few days at home before heading out on my next trip... Israel!!!
