I’ll save that for the end of the post though 😉
My grandma helped her husband Leonard paint the eyes on a Christmas tree he’s painting.
Then we headed over to my aunt’s house
My cousin Melanie with their dog Velvet
For some reason, Velvet felt the need to protect her food.
I tried to butter her up to me by giving her some (in exchange for tricks of course!)
Absolutely delicious rolls! I had two.
Ordered a salad as one of my sides. Not great, not the worst. I didn’t finish it.
My actual meal was really tasty though! Grilled pork chop with a sweet potato and apples.
Have I ever mentioned how much I like sweet potatoes? They are amazing 🙂
They gave me this coupon since it was my first time there! Not sure I’ll get to use it though since it expires in30 days so I’ll probably give it to one of my relatives but I really like that they do that!
Then Melanie and Mike took me to Target so I could get some cold medicine.
Jon Alan came down with a cold last week and apparently, I was lucky enough to catch it.
Took the night time pills right away. The medicine is helping but [unfortunately] it’s not like the symptoms completely go away when I take them.
Woke up around 6:30 when my aunt texted me saying that we were getting ice beads. I was really out of it so it took me a while to realize she was talking about the weather. Seriously, ice in Florida? I feel like I never left Virginia.
I took the early morning wake up as a chance to take more medicine before going back to sleep for a couple more hours.
My aunt and uncle came over for breakfast (and somehow I still haven’t taken a picture of either one of them! Bad blogger.)
Cinnamon roll and fruit (why do I have the feeling I’m going to gain 10 pounds this weekend?)
I ended up going back for a second serving of fruit.
Enjoyed my breakfast with a mug of hot chocolate (hot liquids help colds right?)
& then I sorta kinda ate this too.
Thank you so much Ashley for doing a great job setting this up!
The blogger meetup was so much fun! I was so nervous before I got there but everyone was extremely nice and welcoming! The meetup did leave me with some major camera envy as well as race envy!
I’ll be stealing some more/better pictures from the meetup once everyone else posts some 🙂
Ryan is going to the marathon tomorrow to cheer everyone on as well so hopefully I’ll meet up with her again there to watch the race!
Is it weird that I was totally starstruck meeting Caitlin?
Congrats to Gina (whose blog I can’t find anywhere! That’s what I get for not writing it down!), Katy and Sabrina (and her husband!) on the half marathon they ran today! & of course to whoever else ran it this morning!
& a big good luck to everyone running tomorrow!
