Turkey-rific time!

I hope that all of you had a Turkey-rific time during Thanksgiving. I spent a lot of time with family and friends over the past few days. My family traditionally goes out for our Thanksgiving dinner. We always go to a really nice restaurant and that way no one has to worry about cooking and cleaning and getting all stressed out. After dinner, we went to my parents house and played a few games of "Scene It", a movie clip trivia game.

On Friday, I cooked my first ever turkey! My husband was given a fresh turkey as a gift from one of the contractors he works with... it was 20 pounds!!!! Jeff cut it in half, so I actually only cooked half of it... the other half is in our freezer. I made the traditional Thanksgiving feast with stuffing, mashed pototoes, rolls, cranberry relish, etc.! Busy! Busy! My parents and Jeff's parent's came over for the feast!

We spent Saturday with friends from out of town. We met them at the Hard Rock Cafe in Cleveland for lunch and ended up spending the afternoon at the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame. Personally, I found the museum kind of boring.... yawn! I guess if you are REALLY into music history, then it would probably be interesting. I did enjoy seeing the stage clothing of many artists, Elvis Presley's purple Cadillac, and a letter that Madonna wrote to a girlfriend while attending the University of Michigan (who knew?).

I finally got in some stamping today!!!! I had 5 days off from school, but only got in 1 day of stamping!!! Something is definitely WRONG with that picture! I participated in today's Featured Stamper challenge on SCS and chose to case THIS CARD. As you can see, I changed a lot.

Here's my card...

Stamps: A Cardinal Christmas (SU)
Ink: Black Momento
Paper: Always Artichoke, Ridinghood Red, Very Vanilla, Basic Gray Wassail dp
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Labels Nestabilities, Pretties kit, Rhinestone brad, Ridinghood Red tafetta ribbon, Janome Sew Mini

Yes.... that is sewing on my card! I purchased my first EVER sewing machine! Right now it's all jammed up... so I'll be spending my evening fixing the big mess I made. But so far, I LOVE IT!!!

Anyways, to give you a laugh, I LOVE to dress up my kitty! She isn't so fond of it, but has MANY different outfits. To put you in the Christmas spirit....

Mia says.... "Christmas is right around the corner!"

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!! :)
