Well it was another glorious week of blowing my half-assed diet with turkey, cornbread dressing, giblet gravy, homemade mac n cheese and a boatload of desserts including my mom's sweet potato pie (which I still have two slices left of in my fridge as we speak) and my Aunt Pat's strawberry cake! Unfortunately Tessa had to work on Thanksgiving (technically so did I) so Aunt Pat and I ran up to North Greenville Hospital to take her a plate of nommy food!
After she got off work, we ran up to her Mimi's for a little late Thanksgiving rendezvous. Surprisingly, I was actually too full to eat after at least two or three fully loaded servings earlier in the day - and that's not counting dessert!
After we left Mimi's we gave some early Black Friday shopping at shot as we went by Best Buy for their midnight opening. The line was wrapped all the way around the building and they were only allowing a certain number of people in at a time so we said screw it and went on home.
After the majority of the madness subsided later Friday evening, we ventured out yet again to Best Buy and Old Navy then feasted on some crab at Red Lobster.
Saturday I had to get up bright and early (for an afternoon radio guy, that is!) and went down to the Bojangle's in Easley as they were doing some tailgating business for the big Clemson/South Carolina showdown in Death Valley. I got to meet some Planet fans as well as Clemson and Carolina fans to boot! But, above all else, I got to meet Bo and have me some of their famous chicken n biscuits!
After Bojangle's, Tessa and I went on a crusade for a new Christmas tree and decorations for the new house so we went to Old Time Pottery where we found a $100 dollar 7.5' tree for only $40 then went to Garden Ridge and Lowe's for decorations and fireplace stuff so we could build our first fire in the house while we decorated....well, while Tessa decorated and I assisted....OCCASIONALLY!
Tessa had to go back to work on Sunday so I got with Aunt Pat and we went on a wild goose chase to find Tessa a particular gift I was looking to get for her. We went to Pier One, TJ Maxx, Hallmark, Belk, Target, Kohl's and Big Lots but to no avail. I even later went to St. Nick's/Wish Peddler, Haywood Mall and Kirkland's before finally throwing in the towel and resorting to searching online.
Having said that, I went online Monday and searched for the type of gift I was looking for. After several attempts to 'minimize' my search, I finally found something that came closest to what I had in my head so I put it on my wish list on Amazon. I then continued looking around and decided to sleep on it before making any rash decision purchases. Lo and behold when I went back to Amazon yesterday, it was GONE! FML!!!!
