I survived ya’ll. My first weekend without Rob. Coming from a 7 person house to sleeping solo in my own apartment for 4 nights was totally an achievement for me.
While Rob was gone, his best bud Branden found out he passed the Bar to be a lawyer so our group of friends went out to celebrate. We got bottle service at a local nightclub and the rest is history. Literally history, no one really remembers what happened that night, ha. But that’s the story of all epic nights right?
Then I brought my sister and brother to my apartment for a siblings sleepover. All 3 of us. In a queen bed. Keep in mind my 13 year old brother is the size of a full grown man so we slept sideways on the bed despite the fact there were 2 perfectly good couches in my living room. We ate late night cake, popped popcorn and drank sparkling cider out of wine glasses.
While Rob was gone, I was also successful in making my first round of sushi with raw fish! Apparently I’m rather productive without Rob around… hmmm. Now that I know how to make my own sushi, you can bet you’ll be seeing more of that round here.
Thanksgiving was so good to us this year. First of all, Rob and I decided to forgo presents for each other in exchange for this bad boy, all 60 HD inches of it.
So I have to admit, I’m one of those crazies who always participates in Black Friday. However this year, I was pretty turned off by the idea of shopping during Thanksgiving dinner so we didn’t make any plans to shop. But in between Thanksgiving dinners, Rob and I decided to drive by a local Walmart. We walked in at 5:30 pm to check out the line and by 6:30 pm we were in car with our new toy, driving to our next dinner. After setting it up at 3 am, I went to bed fairly sure the TV was too big for our apartment but after Rob played some Call of Duty to test it out, there’s no way that TV was going back. So as much as I hate to admit it, I race home to watch my shows on our movie screen sized TV in our teeny tiny apartment.
We also made out like a bandit at Target after Thanksgiving (40% off all apparel?!) and I did some online shopping at Old Navy and H&M. Overall, many a deal was had.
Thanksgiving was very full of lots of love, laughter and of course food. Here’s our annual silly Thanksgiving photo, have you ever seen a crazier bunch?
P.S. I missed you!
