Chris had already checked around town to see who all was going to be open on Thanksgiving......McDonald's, BoJangles and Golden Corral....hmmmmmmmm....I'll take Golden Corral. So we get to the hotel pck up Chris and head off to the Golden Corral right down the street. To my surprise the parking lot was packed!!!! I would have never thought there would be so many people who didn't cook at home on Thanksgiving......SHOCKER! Also to my surprise the buffet was $10.99 per person and that did bot included $1.85 for your drink....so after paying $42.00 for our meal we wandered around to try and find a seat....the entire time my heart breaking to the fact that this is not the way a family should be spending the holiday.
I could tell that Chris was not dealing with the whole "dinner out" thing by the expression on his face. People were constantly bumping into you, trying to squeeze past your table and Chris spend half the time eating his dinner with some old mans butt in his face!!!!!
As we left, I told both of them that I sure hope we don't make this a family tradtion!!! I could have made a huge Thanksgiving dinner and had TONS of left overs for $42.00. But at least we were all together and were able to see each other and that's what matters most!!!
After dinner Kyle and I got back on the road and headed home...cause you know I had to get in bed early to rest up for my Black Friday shopping....cause I hear that
2:50am comes mighty early in the morning :O)
I could barely get any sleep. I spend the entire night planning and plotting where I needed to head first. After much thought, Target was going to be our first stop. They opened at 5am so I would need to be in line by 4am...yep....4am!!!! We got there a few minutes after 4 and hopped in line to wait. I can't tell ya all the awesome deals I got cause sneaky eyes may stalk my blog and I don't want to spoil any Christmas morning surprises!!!! But I can say, for those of you who decided not to get your turkey filled bellies out of bed...you missed out!!!!
I spend Saturday wrapping presents and most of yesterday putting out my Christmas decorations.....now once Chris gets home he can tackle putting up my 12ft tree!!!!
Now, I will leave you with another funny Kyle story.
This one he made yesterday while setting out our nativity scene on the coffee table.
"hmmm....Baby Jesus was Made In China"
