being our first year married over the holidays we decided to spend a couple weeks road tripping around in november to really have a "relaxing/adventurous holiday"
so on november 17th we packed up the dog, moped and some snacks in the volvo stationwagon and headed outta town. from nashville to kansas city we only stopped twice to let our dog go to the bathroom
something about driving into the open plains is so calming. like a gush of warmth in the cold christmas craziness.
we spent a lovely time in kansas city. drinking with friends and eating a lot of food.
since we have been gone our days have been full of live music, lots of coffee/hot chocolate/ soy eggnog with brandy.
so we are now in Mcpherson, KS. just a little north of wichita and west of topeka. its a small quaint town of seems to be 5,000. a little smaller then i am used to, but i love the warmth and friendliness of every old lady and scruffy man here.
a few days after getting to mcpherson, robert's parents had a fish fry for us! so delicious! hush puppies everywhere!
making sushi for my in laws. they have never had it! boy did i change their minds about it.
on thanksgiving robert and I just enjoyed each other. it was a wonderful, renewing morning of us just remembering how we fell in love, our first kiss, our first memories and all of our other "first" and the ones yet to come. we realized how blessed we are to be healthy, full of wealth and knowledge, our families love us, and happy. it was a good thanksgiving. and we didnt over eat...which is good.
we did make pumpkin ice cream! it was to DIE FOR. although i almost did because i kept snacking and i am allergic to dairy :(
it was worth it :)
games are the big thing for us right now. every game you can imagine
gin rummy (still unbeaten)
chutes + ladders
i am not really good at any of them except killer uno + gin rummy. unbeated at gin.
more bites later.
