Thanksgiving + Ark v LS...

Well I hope your Thanksgiving was perfect! Mine was wonderful. I woke up around 7:30 and popped right out of bed. I had to tackle my great-grandmothers famous Noodles. I've mentioned them on here many times before. Grammy and I are the only ones in the family who know how to make them and they're a staple at any holiday meal. Once you do it a few times it's easy to do but it is very time consuming. I set a new time record and did it in just under an hour this time! I was proud of myself.
We got to Jodie's (Scott's Mom) around 11:30. It was just the three of us celebrating together. Our food was delish! We catered Turkey IN Dressing from the Butcher Deli and my taste buds decided it was the best dish of the entire day! Jodie said we'll make getting that the new tradition and I couldn't be more happy about it. They make a killer Turkey IN Dressing. Combine it with a Honey Baked Ham, Ma's Noodles, and the other traditional 'fixins' and it was a perfect meal! Scott and I decided to bring our Wii because Jodie had never played one before and we knew she'd love it. She did--and is keeping it to play for a few days! Haha.
We left Jodie's, dropped the pups at their homes, then headed to Randy's. Grandma is totally over cooking the whole Thanksgiving meal by now--so we catered. They came to the house when we were ready to eat--set it up--left--we ate--they came back--cleaned up--AND put the leftovers in Tupperware for us to take home. Hello!! Niceness!! The food was incredible....enough for 15 people, not 6--but incredible! Grandma and Grandpa have used them (Pfeiffers) for years. Needless to say, we've accumulated GOBS of leftovers. My refrigerator literally can't hold anything else. I kinda want to chunk it all tomorrow. It's all heavenly but I just can't keep eating it all!! It's outta there by Sunday for sure. Sorry Scott!
Today we gathered at Randy's--again--to watch the big game. Some of Scott's best friends who are in town for the holidays came to watch on Randy's big screen and brought their parents too! It was a fun watch party. I had major anxiety leading up to the game---followed by disappointment. I'm still SO PROUD of the Hogs! We've had an amazing and fun season. Even though I DESPISE lswho, I'm going to be okay. Of course I wrote a little complaint letter to CBS. Their completely obvious and over-whelming love for LSU was freaking annoying and not professional from the beginning. The final straw was the replay--slow mo--Bobby Petrino clip where he expressed his feelings towards Les Miles. Really CBS? Normally I'd be bothered that our coach said that. BUT they didn't even accidentally catch it live. They replayed a clip that a different camera caught that nobody had to even see. Way to keep it professional and classy CBS. You continue to remind me that you are not only a biased station in your politics but in your sports as well. You Bleaux.
Go Hogs!
