Thanksgiving Take Two!

I'm in a hotel. 

In DC. 

All by my lonesome.

And I couldn't be happier :)

I just pigged out on some supper, and now I'm ready to watch the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.  I'm ready to watch perfect bodies marching around on the runway.  Perfect bodies that NEVER pig out at supper.  And I'm perfectly okay with that.  I wouldn't want to look like them anyway.  Life would be too complicated.  I'm just sayin :)   hahaha...

Anyway, back to Thanksgiving.  Mother and I (really just Mother...but I watched...and that counts) made the most delish turkey ever.  It was Martha's recipe.  And really, Martha DOES know best.  Doesn't she?  And her gravy!  We cooked the turkey with veggies surrounding it, and then mushed them up, and strained them, and they made the most TO DIE FOR gravy ever.  You should try it.  Really.  You will need some fancy pants kitchen utensils and such to make it all happen, but it's worth it.  Pinky swear.

So, before we commenced with the turkey shenanigans we had a little walk with Louis.  Here are some pics:

(I'm sporting my MBTs here.  yes, i realize they look like ortho shoes.  no, i don't care)

(i thought a pic of LW next to this miniature Christmas tree would be a good idea.  he, however, did not want to cooperate)

(GEEZ MUMMY!  GET OVER IT ALREADY.  this is my new favorite LW picture.  because it really does show his personality.  what a cut up!!)

And now for some turkey talk:

(veggies around the turkey and in the turkey.  we didn't use the veggies IN the turkey for our gravy though)

(Martha told us to use this cheese cloth of sorts to cover the turkey)

(ready to go into the oven!)


(Happy Thanksgiving!)

And in closing, I would like to introduce you to Katie Scarlet.  Katie is my mother's Love Bird.  She's quite the diva, and LW developed a crazy crush on her.  Seriously.  He tried to kiss her!  Well, lick her anyway.  SHE tried to bite his nose.  It was all quite comical.  I was so very proud of him because he never once tried to eat her :)  Good pups!

AND...I am devastated.  What in the !@#$!@ is wrong with blogger these days?  I can't invert a picture and post it the way it should be seen?  This picture is so precious.  It's right side up on my screen.  As a matter of fact, it's my new computer walpaper.  But, my friends, you will unfortunately need to crane your neck to the side to see it in all of it's preciousness.

I'm sorry. 

Blame blogger.

Let's all have a moment of silence where we cuss blogger.  Shall we?  Hmph.

So.  To the left everyone.  One.  Two.  Three!

Wish me luck tomorrow friends.  I'm delivering the biggest presentation of my career.  I'm sooooo excited!!!

I was kind of wondering what shoes you were wearing. Thought they were white face boxes. I kid, I kid.

Prettiest turkey I have ever seen.

And if I lived in DC then we could have gone to dinner and drinks! Or maybe drinks tomorrow after your presentation.

Good luck tomorrow!!!
