Happy Thanksgiving!

Well!  I didn't expect to be gone the past couple of days from blogging, but I was.  I am here today to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy all the food and the family!

We are having Thanksgiving at home this year, and I am very excited about it.  It is going to be the four of us and my mom, but for some reason I am still cooking like my brother and his family will be coming as well (ok, mainly my brother!).  On the plus side, I don't think I will need to cook until Christmas.

I am also planning on going out on Black Friday.  I know that a lot of people don't like it, but it is something that I love.  Growing up there wasn't really any talk of a Black Friday...and even if there was we didn't really have any stores available to go to.  But, my mom, brother and I would go to LL Bean every year after Thanksgiving dinner.  We rarely bought anything, but it was fun to go and walk around.

And now, I get the paper on Thanksgiving morning, look through all the ads, and realize I won't be buying anything save for a few craft supplies.  Then I head out way too early in the morning and I get a coffee and walk around.  I love the energy of the people, and even though it can sometimes be insane, for the most part I find it to be a fun time for all of us!

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year?  Do you think you might brave the crowds tomorrow morning?


  1. Happy Thanksgiving, take pics of your special day and yummy feast! The jury is still out on braving black Friday for me!

  2. No Black Friday for me! I won't go to the stores again until next year ;-) Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Hope it was a great celebration today :) No black friday for me--it's no buy november and ya know i'm not a huge fan of it anyway! :) btw did i tell you that you randomly were in my dream last week?!
