Thanksgiving Weekend

Like most of you out there I had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend. Nothing better than spending the time with family, having 5 days off of work, eating great food, it was the perfect Stay-cation. Oh and I can't forget the 78 degree weather that decided to bless us all weekend! For Thanksgiving we went to my grandparents in Long Beach, with most of my immediate family and a few extended family members. My mom took some pictures for Chad and I that I love and will share here soon.

On Friday Chad and I headed up to Camarillo to the outlets, it was pure madness. The outlets there are HUGE and they take Black Friday serious up there, mall cops were out in full force :) We enjoyed the drive up there, it was so nice to have some open space, living in LA we don't get much any open space. We came home and watch Tangled together, I love that movie! I can't believe how real cartoons look these days.

Saturday we went on a bike ride with Maddy and Eric from Hermosa to Venice Beach. Round trip that's about a 20 mile bike ride. When we finished Chad told me how proud he was that I finished it, thanks babe for literally pushing me through some rough spots. Venice Beach has the best people watching ever. There are so many oddballs up there its crazy. It really is pretty dirty though and a little sad, so many young homeless kids strung out on drugs trying to make some money. But then you also have your street performers and freak shows that are great entertainment.

Sunday we went to church and then made a yummy dinner for Chad's dads birthday. We barbequed chicken, homemade sweet potato fries, and grilled vegetables.

I love him
