On Our Way Weekend Wrap Up

How do?  It's manic Monday!  Seems fitting when it's the Monday before Thanksgiving.  Even though the Mr and I will be solo again this year I still have so much I feel like I have to get done and prepare.  Lots of list making on the agenda today.  Thankfully, the Mr already got our Christmas lights up outside so that was already checked off the list Wednesday while it was somewhat nice weather wise.

We lucked out and found a place showing Ghostbusters Afterlife outdoors so we gathered up some blankies and finally saw the dang thing after getting constantly pushed back.  If you're an original Ghostbusters fan, bring some tissues- I was SOBBING and the Mr shed a tear or two as well.

Sunday we started the day with a hearty breakfast consisting of my new favorite, my version of The Original Pancake House's apple pancake.

I made oatmeal pancakes with chia seeds and added some cinnamon, cloves and allspice, used a bit of butter cooking spray with a tablespoon of brown sugar and a nuked sliced apple with this slicer so I didn't even have to do any work and it came together easily.  (That slicer saves SO much time for apple pie too!)  

After we filled up, it was time to put up...

...our tree.  

It seemed harder to get motivated to put up this year.  I think the tangle of lights straight out of both boxes had a lot to do with that.  I planned on having a lot more done but the best laid plans and all that.  I think since I've had to hold back on so much this month mentally that suddenly my holiday stress clock has unleashed.  So I'll work on getting more together today because I do want it done by tomorrow, that's for sure.

That's about it on our end!

How did you spend the weekend?

  1. I am glad the tree is up and it looks great. Hard to believe it is Thanksgiving week but I am really looking forward to it. I am so glad we got to see Ghostbusters already before details of it get leaked out by mainstream media and/or social media.

  2. Busy weekend with a trip to the burbs, a swim class for one of the pooches, all kinds of stuff around the house, and then work. The hits keep coming with sad news with friends and former coworkers with deaths and illnesses. This time it was a son lost to suicide. November has been a very painful month!
