Happy Friday!

Two happy days in a row! Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Friday! How was your Thanksgiving? I hope it was fabulous and that you are still full. Did you eat some good food?  I hope you had a wonderful week. Here are some great highlights from my week.

I went this week to get it touched up a bit. I've been wanting the word 'faith' tattooed for a little while now and at the beginning of October I finally bit the bullet and got it done. I absolutely love it!

A really long holiday weekend
I took Wednesday off to clean and decorate my apartment. I ended up cleaning on Saturday and then decorating on Tuesday night while I watched Dancing with the Stars Finale. I used Wednesday to have some 'Erica' time. I slept in, went to the gym with a girlfriend, got my hair done...and took 2 naps! It was a wonderful day.

On Thanksgiving morning my parents and I participated in the annual Drumstick Dash 5K (move your feet so others can eat). All proceeds benefit the Rescue Mission here in our home town. This was the first year I registered as a runner. My parents walked and I walk/jogged. I probably did about 50/50 and finished in 44 minutes. That's pretty good for me! After the race we went to Starbucks and got our hot beverages and a paper to check out all the ads for Black Friday.

FOOD!...I mean, Family Time!
This year I cooked! I made cornish hens, roasted carrots, and crescent rolls. Mom and dad brought balsamic roasted sweet potatoes and brussell sprouts and a salad. I also made oven-friend apple pies. Everything was so delicious! I had to put the kitties on the porch so that I could set the table. You can see little Cosima in the door window.  Helena kept trying to get on the table. Dad was so tuckered out that he took a little cat nap before we went to the movie.

After dinner we went to see the newest movie in the Harry Potter franchise. It was AMAZING!!!! I can't wait for the rest of the 'series' to come out. I'm not going to say anything about the movie in fear of spoilers, but IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful week. I have some Gilmore Girls to watch today, so I'll leave with that.

Have a great weekend!!!
