Hello my love...oh my how I have missed you! My life has been turned upside down and inside out. Since October things have been extremely hectic and busy. I have missed having time to sit and put my thoughts into words. I have also missed the pleasure of having time to read many of my favorite blogs. For this I am sorry, please know that I will be back soon!
It's finally the day before the Big Gobble, Gobble (Thanksgiving Day), which makes tonight Black out Wednesday, only the biggest party day of the year!!
Almost every bar, pub, club in the area has some sort of specials and activities lined up for tonight. In a neighboring town from where I live, is the annual Turkey Testicle Festival...sounds fun right? Well it is! It takes place in the heart of this small town, a pub puts out many heated tents(which are a must since its cold here in Chicago at this time of year). There is a great line up of live music and here is the kicker..they bread and deep fry turkey testicles, hence the name Turkey Testicle Festival, hot damn just saying it is fun!!!
We have decided this is the place to be this year, so we have rallied up a few friends and are going to head on out to the TTF and make the best of it.
Tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, we have plans to visit my in laws early in the day and be back for dinner at my sisters later that evening, followed by dessert, cocktails and poker playing!
This Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year...BLACK FRIDAY! I use get up at the crack of dawn or a bit before dawn, and shop with all the other shopping fanatics; however with all the chaos and craziness life has brought my way I think I may sleep in on Friday and let all the others have at it
I wish you and your families a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving...Gobble Gobble!
What do you have planned for the next few days?
