Thanksgiving 2011...One Week Later


Last night, a sad thing happened.

I ate the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers.

Heartbreak at its finest. Seriously, there is nothing better to me than Thanksgiving food. It's savory, filling and it just warms your soul.

The last Thursday in November is always one filled with deliciousness and family/friends. It's a wonderful day and this year was no different. Thursday morning came bright and early because Brittany and I had signed up for the 2011 Turkey Strut 5K. This is the second year I've done it and I really do think it's a great idea, other than the getting up early part. But really, you get up, run 3 miles and when you go stuff your face later in the day, you don't even have to think about feeling guilty. Great tradeoff.

After dropping Brittany off, we got back to my brother's and I just just enough time to shower and get ready for lunch. And honestly, I think it would've been the best meal of the year even if I hadn't just ran in said 5K. Sadly, I didn't get a table picture this year, but I at least had to get a shot of my plate and all of its deliciousness
I realize a table shot would have been far more impressive, but this is it! Still soooo good. When lunch was over, and everyone headed out to their other Thanksgiving lunches/dinners, I had the brilliant idea of pulling our air mattress and napping to the football game. And let me tell you, tryptophan induced naps are the most amazing things ever.

That night we headed back over to Brittany's parents house where I was greeted with a big, shiny surprise...
My best friend, my roommate for life and who stood beside me when I said "I do" is getting MARRIED! So crazy and I'm so excited for her!

And no Thanksgiving week is complete without a side of crazy and my sister-in-law and I got our share when we braved the midnight sales at Kohl's and Target. Like I said, crazy. But I did get these gems
For those that haven't watched "Modern Family", you should. And for those that have never used a Dyson, then you probably don't know what it's like to be giddy about vacuuming. Not even kidding, you can ask my husband. Love it.

Simply, our Thanksgiving was simple and wonderful. I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving and are preparing your hearts and homes with the season that is now fully upon us...Christmas!

Dysons are truly magical. My mama has one and I will vacuum at her house without being asked! :)
