Weekend Wrap Up: Thanksgiving Edition

I got this idea from Anna on Instagram & after having a really rough day on Tuesday, decided I deserved a $10 bottle of glitter.  The colors are SEPHORA by OPI Only Gold For Me top coat over OPI You Don't Know Jacques.

This was the second year I started Thanksgiving day running the 5-mile Boulevard Bolt race.  Here's me with my pal Claudia, who ran the race for the first time this year.

This is my friend Jaime, aka my Sunday running partner.

These are my Pancake Run girls, representing at the Boulevard Bolt.  From left to right:  Cara, me, Jaime, Mary Katherine, & Melissa.

My family has Thanksgiving lunch every year at my Aunt's house.  I shockingly only ate one plate of food & one little plate of dessert.  Not shockingly, I took home two half eaten pies & ended up having to throw them in the 'garage trash' on Friday night after finding myself with both pies & a tub a cool whip, eating all three simultaneously.

In an effort to burn pie calories, I decided to put up our Christmas tree, while watching Bridget Jones's Diary, obvi.

Christmas tree!

On Saturday night, we went to dinner with our West Side pals, Mike & Amanda & then came back to our house for some Ouija board action.  What?  It's festive!

Yesterday I went with Mary Katherine & Katie to see Breaking Dawn:  Part 1.  Katie, smartly, isn't a Twilight fan & hasn't read the books or seen any of the other movies, but her husband is in The Features & they had a song in the movie.  For those of you who have seen the movie, The Features' song plays during the honeymoon sequence where Bella & Edward are swimming, playing chess & generally trying not to have marital relations.  The picture above is the song credit for "From Now On", which is the song written & performed by The Features & mastered by John Baldwin.  Team Features!
