The day after (and 6 years today!)

I'm guessing that one of the reasons sweat pants were invented was for "the day after"...also known as Black Friday, or one day after Thanksgiving.  People everywhere are pondering over how much they ate yesterday, maybe even feeling some side effects...while others might be diving into the fridge to throw together a plate of leftovers.  Either way, comfort is key.

So what was I thinking when I wore this 6 years ago, the day after?

This is most definitely the polar opposite of sweat pants.

Today, Frank and I are celebrating our 6th anniversary.  We were married on Black Friday of 2005 in the largest retail grossing zip code in the country (maybe even the world?).  We defied the odds and avoided setting foot in any of the thousands of stores in town for the "best deal".  Instead, we had a kick ass party :)


The day after has long been a favorite day of mine, even before our wedding.  A close group of us started a tradition 11 years ago today known as the "Leftovers Party".  Every year, we gather at Jason's house for some good eats that we enjoyed with our families the day before.  The wine is flowing, the laughs are constant, and memories are relived as well as created.  Our wedding (as well as my brother's, on Black Friday 2004) was an excuse to do the same...just dressed a little nicer.  

More on that tradition soon...I need to make my obligatory key lime pie for the party now.

Happy Anniversary to my groom!
