Thanksgiving was spent with family, of course. We had a huge turkey with all of the other traditional American favorites, like mashed potatoes, stuffing, roast beef, pumpkin pie, and all that good stuff. To add onto that, we of course had to add in the filipino food, like the lumpia, pancit, and a couple other things I can't remember. Most of the day was spent relaxing then playing Monopoly as a family, which ended up being loud and fun! I don't have many pictures because I realized that my family doesn't take many pictures together unless it's Christmas or Easter.
Friday was spent doing one of my favorite things: Black Friday shopping! I've been shopping on this day during the wee hours of the morning for the past six years now, so I prefer shopping on the actual Friday rather than the Thursday. This was my most successful (and most expensive) trip in all my years of Black Friday shopping--I have a haul video/post coming up for you guys in the next couple of days [:
Saturday was a chill day spent mostly with Darell. We had worship practice in the morning before a bunch of us stayed after to help prep the church for Christmas. I don't have any pictures of how the church currently looks, but the theme is a "Rustic Christmas."
The later half of the day was spent with Darell's family. I watched him clean out his closet and he later helped me out in filming my Black Friday haul [: We went out to eat Korean Bbq for dinner, then we got more food buy getting ourselves (and some of his other family) a few boxes of Krispy Kreme. We ended the night with a movie night watching I Am Legend together. It was really sweet.
Sunday started with none other than church. I played the bass today! I used to play the bass and sing at my old church, so I really enjoyed this opportunity to get back into the swing of playing the bass. I'm excited to start playing it again.
The day was simple and Darell and I watched Disney's Frozen. It was a great movie with some awesome music! The vocals were on point, and it was a little different than what I'm used to hearing from Disney's music vocally, which is not a bad thing. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and recommend it.
Now, I'm back at school. It is Christmas Fantasia week, meaning that it will be a very busy and late week filled with lots of singing on top of all my papers and other homework due this week. Pray that I survive.
I'll update y'all soon. I hope you're not stressing as much as I am!
