What was the best part of your Thanksgiving day?
Once in awhile i'll ask Craig what his favorite part of the day was.... especially since sometimes we both did the same things. It's fun to see if we have the same fond memory or a different one. I would say my favorite part of yesterday was running with Craig at a race and crossing the finish line. It was only a 2 mile fun run but it was fun. My family came to support Craig and I. There was a point in the race when I looked around and realized how diverse running is. That made me happy and excited that so many people enjoy it as much as I do. All the runners got ribbons and Turkey Trot shirts.
I started the morning off with this.....Green Monster and a piece of toast with the best PB EVER!!!
After our run we went and had Thanksgiving lunch with Craig's family. Okay I have to admit something. I had never in my life tried squash. I know that a lot of families have it for Thanksgiving but my family doesn't. I don't know why. I decided to try it at Craig's house and it was SO good. OMG I have been missing out this whole time. I brought some home. I'm going to mix it with my oats for breakfast. Yum. I've seen some of you do this and now I know why. While there we also played Wii. I had never played Wii either! It was fun but kind of hard to control for me. I need more practice. We've ben wanting a Wii...maybe we will get it for Christmas? =)
From there we went to my families house. When I got there I thought most of it would be done....but it was a crazy house. I usually go over to my parents during the day and help with the cooking. It's a tradition that I love. This year I decided that I wanted to go with Craig and spend Thanksgiving with them too. We tried to take a little nap while we waited for the others to finish getting ready but we couldn't so we chatted it up with my peeps. Dinner was great and I didn't go overboard. I only had one plate at each house which was lunch and dinner. I tried a little of everything but didn't go back for seconds on anything. I could've gone crazy on my mom's mac and cheese and stuffing. NO JOKE. I love her food. Even though I didn't go back for more I was still so stuffed. I think it's because I had a Dr. Pepper. I don't drink soda. I haven't for a VERY long time. It was one of the first things I changed about my lifestyle. I was craving one yesterday so I had one. It was not the best and it burnt my throat. That was the end of the soda craving for HUGE while.
While at dinner we decided to go dancing with my sisters and cousin.We came home got ready and headed to club Myst. We danced a lot and I was happy to burn off some of the food I ate. It's always fun having my girls and my cutie with me.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. If you are out shopping today be safe and hope you find some great deals!
