warning:: I'm hungover writing this, so bare with me.
Thanksgiving day began just like every other year, a little football at the Malone household. this year was pretty cold and we have snow on the ground so we didn't play to our usual 10 touchdowns, instead we stopped at 6. one of those being from yours truly. (most valuable player? maybe.)
after football it was home to get ready to feast. I helped mom prep the meal by peeling potatoes and opening cans (who says I can't cook?) the fam came over, we monged on the usual fixings, and I blew out my ice cream cake candles.
oh, and opened my awesome birthday gifts! parents got me a Brayden Schenn Philly Flyers jersey, perfume, and Kohls//Amazon gift cards. Randy&Melissa got me Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan and a new Ohio State shirt. Brian got me pink camo wine glasses and perfume. Gram got me a Bob Evans gift card (fun fact:: Bob Evans is ridic delish). Erin got me a bottle of vod, Browns ornament, and a shot glass. thanks guys!!
with a full belly, it was off to begin the black friday shopping. every year I go with my cousin Mo to help her shop for her kids. this year we started off at Walmart, before hitting Target, Kohls, the mall, Kmart, Half Price Books, and Kohls again. we got everything she needed, and I even scored a few things.. a pair of texting gloves, Monsters University bluray, a Mike Wazowski, some little things for my cousin, and items for my old lady (I took an ornament off a giving tree). 14 hours of shopping later and 24 hours of no sleep it was time to call it a day.
fast forward to Saturday night, it was time to celebrate 24 years. my friends bought me way too many shots, and I tried my first Irish Breakfast shot, which was delicious and if you've never tried it I highly recommend ordering one next time you're out.
and that was my Thanksgiving weekend. how was yours?
