This Thanksgiving...I am Thankful for Indoor Plumbing

The night before Thanksgiving, there was a puddle in front of my house...but it had not rained.  And if you listened carefully, you could hear water running.  But where???  We cut the water off at the main supply and the meter was spinning like a penny slot machine! So Will, Jimmy and my Dad had the pain staking task of digging up the line and repairing the break. Will, bless his heart, did most of the work--but at least I now know even more than before that he is awesome husband material ;)

So-- have you ever had to cook Thanksgiving without water? Have you ever had to run to the neighbors to fill up water jugs, and to shower...and poop?  It sucks.
Thankfully, it was all repaired on Friday. Will worked his butt off on house projects all weekend.  If you are familiar with "Love Languages," my language is "acts of service" so he totally swooned me.

The rest of Thanksgiving weekend was very nice.  We spent time with family--both mine and his. I finally met more of Will's family--they were exactly as Will had described each of them so it was very comfortable and if you *have* to get some in-laws, I think I'm getting a pretty good bunch.
We also braved the middle of the night crazies for some Black Friday shopping, Will got some samples from a jeweler for me to start deciding on a wedding band (the pic in the collage is Spencer making fun of me oohing and aahing over the bling!) and we decorated and wrapped presents. 

Will also received his FIRST piece of mail here. I know-- that sounds cheesy...but it was fun to see his name and this address. Yes, it was just a piece of semi-junk mail where he signed up for a rewards card at TGIFridays but came in the mail on Black Friday.... It was to TGIFridays and our honeymoon cruise leaves on a Friday... Coincidence?  yeah...totally. But I have nothing else to blog about since my dehydrated holiday evidently affected my ability to take family pictures and have a sense of humor!

I find it interesting that you talk about cooking Thanksgiving dinner and pooping all in the same paragraph. Hmmmm....

Looks like you had a fabulous holiday weekend. And, yes, I would say that Will is a keeper for sure.
