item!) was in town to see family for the weekend and I was able to steal her away from her family for one night! It was an occasion to celebrate and talk and eat. We ate a lot. =) Whenever she comes in town, we have begun a tradition of going to one of our favorite restaurants and I had an amazing drink - a chocolate wine. "Chocolate Amore" is its name and I had to take some pictures of it:
Words cannot even describe quite how good it was. It is a rich red wine with strong cherry tones and an amazingly smooth dark chocolate finish. If you are a chocolate lover, you have to try finding this wine! (I did find a list of online stores you can order it from here.)
And then, for Thanksgiving day, I talked to my family in Hawaii on the phone and spent the afternoon/evening in a combination of eating, recovering from eating, and enjoying general family time. Now that I'm awake on Black Friday, I have to get myself in gear and do some shopping! I was really hoping to finish my family Christmas shopping today so you may very well be seeing many more posts from me this weekend completing my Operation Family Chrismas Shopping saga!!!
Have fun out there (or at home - however you do your shopping) and check out some of these blogs for great helps for online deals this weekend!
