Thanksgiving Weekend

Man, this weekend was a much needed long weekend. I always wonder what I will do with my days off and often make "to do" lists that end up half way done. This weekend I had plans to scrapbook, file bills, decorate, bake, and go see Harry Potter. Well, I decorated for Christmas and I baked some cookies. I got half of my list done. However, I finished a book and rented 4 movies.

On Thanksgiving, Brad and I went to a fancy restaurant, Christopher's. It was delicious. I have to say that the stuffing and the white chocolate pumpkin cheesecake were my favorites! I was amazed at how many families ate there. I think when we have a family we will actually cook. :) And by we, I mean.... Brad. JK I will help. I was disappointed by the Macy's Day Parade. Since when is the parade a bunch of interviews with famous people??? I wanted to see the floats! I stopped watching it. Speaking of things I stopped watching... the Gator game was RIDICULOUS!! I stopped watching that before the second half because I could feel my blood pressure rising! I took a break and went shopping instead and watched my checking account go in the opposite direction. There's always next year.

All in all I had a great long weekend. How did you spend Thanksgiving??


The holidays are here! Thanksgiving this year was bittersweet. We weren't with family, yet I have so much to be thankful for. Here is a list of things I am thankful for (in no specific order).

Brad- I have the best husband in the world! He makes holidays away from home so much easier!
Daisy- I love when she is cuddly!
Employment- 2010 is ending well with both of us employed, something that I took for granted until Brad lost his job in 2009.
Health- Can't complain, especially when so many people I know are very sick.
Family- can't live with 'em... can't live without 'em. I can't wait to see them!
Friends- near and far. We have been so blessed with great friends here in Texas and always miss our friends back home.
Work peeps- Between the teachers I work with and the kids in my class, I am thankful that I have a job that I can go to everyday and have people that make me smile (and sometimes give me the biggest case of the giggles ever!)
There are many more things but these are my top ones. What are you thankful for? Have you told your loved ones lately that you are thankful for them??
