thanksgiving weekend

Tuesday, November 29

It was the best having my siblings come stay with us for Thanksgiving. We spent the weekend touring museums, finding new favorites at We The Pizza, staying up late watching movies, devouring four whole pies, sleeping in, and eating Thanksgiving leftovers for breakfast. And yes, three out of those six things have something to do with eating. We know where our priorities are.

P.S. We really really missed you Mom, Dad and Jilly! We'll make next year, THE year!

We the Pizza and Good Eats Eatery are the best!! You would love Ted's Bulletin in Capital Hill also. It has a wonderful atmosphere, like a 20's diner, and homemade poptarts and milkshakes!! It's a must-try :)
