Happy {Thanksgiving} Weekend.

I’m thrilled for Thanksgiving this year. Not just the food, food, FOOD or the mad dash shopping on Black Friday (which I really do love, by the way), but the tradition. I’ve never missed a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in my lifetime, so that’s first up. Then I’ll be making cranberry parfaits to enter into our family’s yearly Thanksgiving Dessert Contest. Sometime in the early afternoon I’ll head over to my mom and stepdad’s house. My mom and I will cook and browse the sales ads to formulate our plan of action for Friday. There will be lots of football watched and maybe even a little bit of Christmas decorating done since we’ll all be together. Finally, that evening I’ll roll myself to my car and home, with a bag full of leftovers to sustain me throughout the weekend. What’s the best part of your Thanksgiving Day?

Lots of good stuff floating around this week…

    Your day sounds so fun! I hope it was everything you planned and more. I am not a Black Friday shopper at all, but I can appreciate the rush of it all. I'm more of a sit back and watch movies today kinda girl:)
