I just got back from spending a week in Boca Raton, Florida! (My in-laws live there). The husband and I went there to celebrate Thanksgiving with the family and it was such a great week!
We flew to Fort Lauderdale from Washington Dulles on the afternoon of Tuesday the 23rd. Before we boarded our flight, we had to go through TSA security where I was promptly given a 'lovely' pat down! Take it from me, wearing a 1950s long line bullet bra infused with metal is not a good idea for travel. The two ladies who performed my search were very nice so the experience was not too bad. The only thing that sucked was the gawking and staring from my fellow travellers!
After enduring the pat down, the man and I had a quick lunch in our terminal and boarded our plane. We were in the air for about 2.5 hours.
Here I am hanging out on the pool deck after spending most of the morning chopping celery and onions and making pies. I wore a lot of snoods this trip! The humidity was wreaking havoc on my hair! Also, snoods make styling quick and easier to do.
I have no idea what these flowers are but they are gorgeous!

Here is my plate! Instead of turkey, I had a veggie patty and the mother-in-law made me my own batch of sausage-free cornbread stuffing made with chestnuts! After dinner, we all had apple or pumpkin pie. Everything was so good! I felt "fat-n-happy" after dinner and reflected on how I was truly thankful for being so lucky to be with family on this day.
I will post more pictures soon in another post! This one is long enough as it is!
I hope all of you gals had a fabo Holiday!
