Thanksgiving craziness in NY

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their loved ones – I know I sure did!
Erik and I flew up to NY Wednesday night for the holiday. We did Thanksgiving at his mom’s on Thursday which was low-key and relaxing. Friday was the “real” dinner at his Aunt Tema’s in NJ and it was lovely as ever (also his 28th birthday!). Tema cooked a ton of stuff and it was all unbelievably delicious (that woman can cook her butt off!). Got back to Long Island pretty late and went right to bed to sleep off the nice Turkey Hangover.
Saturday we slept in a bit and then went to Indian Head Ranch in Huntington which our great friends Lia & Wayne own. It was wonderful to see them both and I ran into a few old friends who I hadn’t seen in ages. I also rode this wonderful horse (Stewart, lol) for a bit who was an absolute dream. After riding we went home and got un-horse-ified before heading out for Erik’s 10-year high school reunion.
We drove to Astoria with some of his old
HS buddies and grabbed dinner at a diner (I miss NY diners *so* much) before heading into the City for the actual reunion itself. We got to the Sixth Ward, a bar off of Houston, around 11pm and were immediately overwhelmed by the amount of people there. Erik had a great time catching up with old friends and laughing about old stories. We left late and didn’t get home until about 4:30am.
Had to get up at 6:30am for our flight on Sunday (ugh) and we both were a mess from the sub-2 hour sleep we had gotten. We snoozed a bit in the airport and on the plane (which had a transfer in Ohio, which got delayed…) and finally got home around 5pm.
All in all, it was a great weekend with the perfect mixture of relaxation and exhaustion. He’s headed to Boston for work for the week and then we leave on Sunday for our cruise.
I can’t wait to go home and go to bed…
