...Friday was tough. it was the day of my grandfather's funeral. after the mass, we went to a luncheon in my hometown (where the mass was held.) after that, we went to my grandmother's house and spent the rest of the day/night with her and family. it was heart-breaking, but always better when loved ones are around.
...Friday, Lu and I worked later than usual and when he got home from work, we went to a local restaurant, where I had a seriously delicious veggie burger with sweet potato fries and a few glasses of wine. I asked the waiter to package up the fries, thinking I'd want them later, and then I forgot them! someone was clearly trying to send me a message ;-) we came back and watched The OA, which we became obsessed with.
I always love knowing what other people are into - I just love learning new things, finding out about new events and things to do, and always enjoy a good product recommendation.
thus, I'm starting a new series called "what I'm currently into" - that's what I'm loving, wanting, doing, thinking, whatever - just what I'm into! and I figured I'd do it on Mondays and recap the weekends a bit.
Lu and I hosted Thanksgiving this year. in attendance: my mother, my father, my sister, Felicia, and her boyfriend, Ben. it was a small and intimate Thanksgiving and I wanted to make it special by taking extra care to the details, like our table.
remember in the "olden days" when we used to rip out pages from magazines like "ym" and "Tiger Beat" of Justin Timberlake and the Hanson brothers and tape them to your walls?
I'm not sure if the young kids are doing that these days, but what I can tell you is that I still do that, just in a hey-it's-2016 kind of way, and I'm no longer putting pictures of hot men on my walls.
