Festivities begin

Yesterday was a lovely lazy Saturday, but it has completely flown by! The gist of my day was relaxing, cleaning, laundry, cooking, and going to the grocery store for Thanksgiving food. Wow was it crowded too. I got a turkey and all of our lovely necessities for our feast :) I made a chicken pot pie for dinner last night too. Scott was hesitant because he didn't really like them as a kid. But like always I said "well let me try" and in the words of Emeril "BAM!" It was awesome and we loved it! What a perfect meal for this time of year, and we left the table overly full :)

Today we're off to Scott's parents house for his families Thanksgiving. We always celebrate Thanksgiving with his family the Sunday beforehand. I truly can't believe that it's this time of year already but I'm loving it! I made a dessert this year and I think it's going to be awesome. I made a chocolate "Take 5" trifle....It's brownies, chocolate pudding, cool-whip, and Take 5 candy bars chopped, and topped with drizzled caramel..YUM!

We have one of our friends coming into town so we're meeting them for dinner in Ellicott City on Tuesday night at our favorite mexican restaurant. We celebrate Thanksgiving with my family on the Wednesday before, and will cook our own dinner on Thursday. I'm so happy this week is only a 3 day work week yay! And then it's time for Black Friday :)!!

And I'm absolutely loving how the stores are decorated for Christmas already! However I refuse to decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. I find it unfair to rob Thanksgiving of it's holiday time :)

What a wonderful post! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday ~ maybe because I like to cook and eat. You are so lucky to have three Thanksgivings. Hope yours is happy!
