I Really Am Ruggedly Handsome, Aren't I?

We're flying out to visit the in-laws in a few hours. You always think you have so much time to get things together and then it sneaks up on you and you have to rush. We'll onlly be gone for a few days, so luckily we don't have to pack suitcases full of stuff.

We did some last-minute laundry, cooked some eggnog cheesecake to bring with us, prepared the laptop for traveling, and made sure we have all the tools and latest updates — all while we were watching the latest episodes of NCIS and Castle.

If you're not American, have some turkey anyway. It's pretty darn good.
