I've been overwhelmed with happiness this week. So many of my friends have gotten in touch to congratulate me, and so many of them have mentioned what a great year I have had. I have to admit I hadn't realized how many amazing things have happened this year. Talk about thankful.
This is my absolute favorite time of year. The air is crisp, I can smell Christmas coming and nothing feels as good as a Thanksgiving meal. B and I always enjoy decking our halls for Christmas. We usually start pretty early because I get so excited, so I wouldn't be surprised if our outdoor lights were up this weekend.

Since we were with my entire family last weekend, my little brother and I are not making the trip home for Turkey day. He and his girlfriend drove down to our house this evening. It's so relaxing to not have a huge group, but I think we all feel a bit strange without our parents on Thanksgiving.

Nonetheless, we will be going all out tomorrow. Two turkeys (one in the oven, one deep fried), mashed taters, my brother's favorite green beans, my grandma's famous stuffing, and canned cranberries (by special request). My brother's girlfriend made two pies!

This will be my first Thanksgiving with B. I'm so excited to create an awesome meal with him together in our home.

Happy Thanksgiving to All! I hope you all feel as full of thanks as we do.


  1. We always have so much food leftover too. It's a tradition to have at least three turkeys: one smoked, one oven roasted, and one deep fried.

    I think my family tries to out do each other.

  2. You're making me hungry ... grr (that was my stomach, not me growling)

  3. Wheow! I'm so excited to taste this!

  4. That looks delicious, hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the one you love!

    Me and my hubby celebrated our 2nd anniversary over thanksgiving so while we shared a yummy pumpkin pie he surprised me with a gorgeous diamond necklace from in front of our family!

    It was really sweet...we didn't have two turkeys like you guys did, the deep fried one sounds delish!

  5. what the hell does fried turkey taste like?
