Do you want to know what I was most thankful for yesterday?
Not having to put a bra on my body until 2:30 pm.
I am sorry if this is too much information but it’s the truth and I like to keep things real around here.
I don’t care what size bra you wear, that thing is annoying, signifies structure (literally), obligations and needing to be somewhere.
And I needed a break from it.
I did my usual blog ->eat ->run ->shower->eat routine yesterday morning but instead of getting dressed at that point for the day, I indulged myself in the physical freedom of my favorite not-leaving-the-house-hope-no-one-rings-the-doorbell ensemble:
Oversized Butter sweatpants (is Butter still cool?), Islanders hooded sweatshirt and my hair up in a bun.
It was glorious. As were my cookies.
Baking oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies after a seven-mile run with a cup of coffee in one hand, the parade on the television and no bra on my body is now high on my list of favorite things to do.
Having my son home while I baked meant extra hands at the cooling rack.
Can we blame him?
My oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies were a hit as usual. I think I will share the recipe with you next week, okay?
I kept his hands out of the double crumb apple crisp. I picked out some of the apples though, for testing purposes obviously.
I did not want to get dressed by the time 2:30 pm rolled around to leave for the city but I am glad that I did.
My aunt sets such a beautiful table that I don’t think my bra-less ensemble would have blended all that well.
I am forever reminded as to why I made sure that my aunt was in attendance for all meetings with the florist for my wedding.
Oh, the food? Yeah, that’s always amazing too.
I am noticing now that I missed the salads but you get the idea.
Who needs turkey when you have so many side dishes?
I had a few rounds that looked like the plate above.
And a few rounds of dessert from the table below…
One day I will learn to stop at one plate for dessert. Yesterday was not that day.
So it’s Black Friday. I am recalling my post last year when I said it’s Black Friday and of course I woke up hungry.
Just because we ate more than the usual last night does not mean we skip breakfast or do anything any different from the normal today when it comes to our eating.
Proceed as usual please. It was one day of eating, let it go. Thanks.
Will I be shopping today? Good question. The only thing of interest to me in my overloaded inbox of Black Friday sales which I started receiving on Tuesday is the possibility of a good deal on the Pure Barre website for more DVD’s.
Yes, I am extremely selfish and only thinking of myself at the moment instead of buying gifts for other people.
Are you shopping today?
How was your Thanksgiving? What did you eat?
What’s your favorite lounge-around outfit?
