One week until Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is possibly my favorite holiday.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, but there is just something about Thanksgiving (maybe it’s the fact that it’s just one day and you don’t have to worry about buying gifts) that makes it feel amazing and special.

What do you do for Thanskgiving?  For the past several years Chris and I have celebrated with our friends.  Usually he has to work and in the past I’ve had to work too, not on the day but on the days around, so we aren’t able to travel.  I consider this a blessing—I hate traveling at the same time as everybody else!  I enjoy travel and going new places, but not at the same time as the rest of the country.  For instance, when we go on our honeymoon, it should be LESS busy because it will be right after the New Year.

I got an email from Laura who is hostess for this year (second year in a row, she’s amazing!) with the menu.  Oh my goodness.  It is a fantastic looking menu.  Turkey, two kinds of stuffing, potatoes, brussel sprouts salad, other vegetables, mac and cheese, cheesecakes (yes, plural), bread pudding…we are going to be so fat by the end of the day!  I can’t wait!

I want (need) to go for a run today but my legs are super sore from yesterday’s workout.  Too many lunges!  I will try anyway, the twitter consensus is that I should go out slow and it will help.  Speaking of consensuses, there certainly isn’t one as far as my wedding day makeup goes.  Some people love it, some think I should wear no makeup at all, some like parts and not others.  Who knew makeup was so controversial, haha?

  1. This is going to be the first Thanksgiving in FOREVER that my whole entire nuclear family will be together. Since there are 5 of us siblings, we used to divide the family up and do half with dad, half with mom (no divorce, just everyone wanted to be with their family). The only bummer was that WE were split up!!

    We’re finally gonna do it right, this year. I can’t wait to enjoy all the foods! (I unfortunately won’t be enjoying the brussels sprouts this year, so jealous but I guess my family aren’t interested in them. Rats.)
