Whoo. Our Thanksgiving was quite fun! I did a lot of cooking, and even at the time of writing (Sunday), we STILL have a full pumpkin pie left to eat.
We did little other than watch movies and go on a walk Thursday, so these are our Friday outfits. This is a shirt Mia brought me, and said if I didn’t like it, she was going to take it. Considering how well it went over, I don’t think she’ll be going home with it, mwahahaha.
This knot actually got Mia complements when we went out to the Art Institute to give Braden a chance to do some homework. She ended up untying it and retying it to show someone.
Apparently, among other things, an Art Institute trip is becoming part of our Thanksgiving tradition. This year we got to see a few areas I hadn’t previously seen, including the new Greek, Roman and Mesopotamian exhibit.
We also saw the print and illustration exhibit, which I hadn’t seen before. The last few times I’ve been to the Art Institute of Chicago have been for Braden’s homework assignments, which all have been in the medieval art area, so it was cool to see the new things.
We actually stayed at the Art Institute almost until closing, which was a first for me. People were still coming in until a half hour before the museum was closed, which goes to show that it’s weird that the museum closes at 6.
After all that fun, we went to a friend’s post-Thanksgiving hangout.
It was supposed to be a pajama party, so we were definitely a bit overdressed for the party, but it was a good time. We watched a couple of movies, ate more, and chatted a bunch.
I think our day after Thanksgiving was a pretty good one, and involved absolutely no shopping except at the Art Institute’s gift store.
Molly would like to know if mew had a good Thanksgiving too? Did you hit the Black Friday sales? Or maybe hit up Small Business Saturday?
