Black Friday: #thanksgivinginthevillages

Happy Black Friday from the villages.

This morning marked the 2nd day of the Running Streak Challenge.  Laney and I whipped out 3 miles around the golf course.

Breakfast was oatmeal, apples, pie spice (very holiday-ish), honey and protein flakes.

Mom and I made a quick run to use one of her discounts to the village stores.  They were busy, but I’m sure not even close to what the malls, etc outside “The Bubble” were today.  I scored $130 Bass boots for $30.  And they are cuteness.

Mom, Dad, Justin and I continued our holiday golf theme with our 11:30 tee time this morning.

I cracked open a La Croix sparkling water for refreshment- still not a huge fan of soda water but I’m getting more used to it.

Afterwards we went to the Havana Country Club (beautiful by the way) for beer and pizza.

Ran back to the house to grab Chan and then went to play bocce ball and cornhole.  We’re a pretty competitive family, but Chantel is the one who really doesn’t like to lose…

Don’t make her mad!  🙂 These two are my heart. 

Trying to figure out dinner and when we can go into the villages for drinks 😉 Adios!

This Ain’t NASCAR…Who Explodes the Champagne?

It’s been a busy Thanksgiving day!

Chan made cute little breakfast this morning (she’s so “Martha Stewart”).  Pumpkin and leaf doughnuts (yummy!)

We all watched more of the Macy’s Day parade, then the dog show. Laney and I took naps throughout the dog competition…although I think she was more interested in it than I was…

Image

 

We had a family tee time at 1:20 and had a blast trying to outdo each other in golf.  

Image

 

There were 5 of us so mom and Chan switched playing holes.  Chantel reverted back to her cheerleading days on the holes she didn’t play.

I actually had a pretty good 8 holes out of 9- and the shot below I hit out of the water and right onto the green for par!

We got back from golf to finish up cooking Thanksgiving dinner and pop open mimosa’s… only mom decided she should shake the champagne (ai yi…no bueno).  Poor Chantel and the fridge got blasted with champagne….

Fresh market sells pre-made mimosas that are actually pretty good:

Dinner was next (yes, yes that is a little bit of turkey on my plate- I mean, it IS Thanksgiving!). I also took Carb-Ease beforehand to alleviate some of the damage the indulgence of the day is having on my bod.

After dinner, we made a golf cart caravan to go listen to a band in the heart of the villages and have some wine.  It was fun!

Image

 

Back at home, mom gave all her kids advent calendars- I haven’t had one since I was really little!  How fun!

And I’m off to help the girls with dessert!  Hope everyone has had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
