Paper Lanterns

by Meghann on November 23, 2011

We made it to Titusville! Thanksgiving festivities have officially begun! Woo hoo!

I had a big ole hunk of No-Bake Pumpkin Protein PIe as a snack this afternoon before we left

And we stopped for subs at Publix on the way into town. I had the Cranberry Turkey special which had turkey, bacon, and cranberry sauce. It was amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

My brother and his fiance are getting married near the beach in February and have this crazy romantic idea of releasing (100% biodegradable) rice paper lanterns near the water during their reception. They’re still working on the permit process of legally being allowed to release 100+ lanterns in the night sky, but figured it would be fun to order a dozen or so for a test run first.

We took the lanterns to an open field and had a go with seeing how they worked.

The results were amazing. They were like shooting stars casually floating through the sky. Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you imagine the sky being filled with hundreds of them? Talk about a beautiful way to celebrate a new marriage! I can’t wait to see her vision come to life!

After the lanterns I had a little something to quench my thirst.

Before I had a chance to stop him, my Dad had dug into the Caramel Pecan Pie Megan and I had made last night. I was hoping to save it for Thanksgiving tomorrow, but what can you do? If people want pie, then you give them pie. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a small sliver with some vanilla ice cream and was impressed with how rich and delicious the pie was.

It was a tad runny in the center, but the flavor was all still there. Even the homemade crust was flaky and perfect. We did good. ๐Ÿ™‚

My alarm is set early for a little Thanksgiving run with my siblings.

Good night!

I made the mistake of shopping while hungry on Sunday and stocked our fridge with enough fruit and veggies to last the entire week, instead of just the three days we planned to be in town. Oops… The good news is I had veggies galore to choose from for lunch and my parents’ fridge is more ยป

Stage 4 of New Rules of Lifting for Women is done and done. I finished workout B this morning. ๐Ÿ™‚ There was a momentary point of panic where I spent 15 minutes searching the house for my spreadsheet (I still have no idea where it is!), but I took a photo of the workout in more ยป
