Nick and I spent a nice Thanksgiving with our friend Carmen. We made lots of food, watched concerts on TV (yeah Michael Jackson!) and played some wii. After she left Friday morning Nick and I relaxed together for the next three days. It was wonderful.
On Friday we watched Ratatouille, played Lego Star Wars on the wii, and did some Black Friday shopping at Target and Ross. Nick got the Flight of the Conchords 2nd season dvd for only $8.99! The we ate leftovers and made turkey pot pie.
On Saturday we had tacos, pozole, a torta, and a pineapple Jarritos at Los Comales. More relaxing. More leftovers.
On Sunday we woke up late and had leftovers. Then we went hiking at William B. Umstead State Park, which was amazing. It was so peaceful. Afterward we stopped at Crabtree Valley mall on our way to The Pit in Raleigh. We had some great food (brisket and pulled pork for Nick, baby back ribs for me) courtesy of Emily and Steve who gave us a gift card months ago. Thanks, guys!
Sunday night we made apricot and strawberry rugelach. They are delicious!
On a sad note, though, our hamster Penelope passed away suddenly on Tuesday. It tinged our holiday and I can't quite believe she won't be running around our office anymore. I hope she had a good life with us, even if it was only for three and a half months.
