This afternoon, we'll head up to my grandparents for Thanksgiving with the family. I'm bringing the veggie tray and maybe some cranberry sauce as my grandma still does the whole sha-bang on Thanksgiving! Her rolls are the best.
If you're still needing something tasty to whip up for friends, family, or yourself, Minimalist Baker has a ton of drool-worthy recipes on tap for you.
Today I'm thankful for the manfriend, my family, my friends, and living in the Pacific Northwest. Every time I imagine leaving this place, it just seems nearly impossible to do.
As winter approaches, I'm already scheming up the number of times we can visit Bend, or do anything involving getting out to the snow and the mountains. And for the record, we already have two trips to Bend planned for January!
Last Saturday, I opted to skip yoga so the manfriend and I could head on a little hiking adventure - something I always say I want to do, but rarely make the time for.
The views and the long, winding drive to Kentucky Falls were worth it, however.
Don't be fooled by my seemingly normalness. There are days I look like a crazy tourist hiker and last Saturday was one of those...
And as usual, the debate begins in my mind. Will I go out on Black Friday or will I stay in where it's cozy and peaceful?
On the one hand, I'd like to pick up some new sheets at half price and a few other small things, but on the other hand, I could also do that via a little online shopping and avoid the day of craziness.
Of course, if you're doing any online shopping, be sure to sign up for Ebates. It's free and easy and you'll get cash back on most purchases you make online. Seriously, there is no trick to it. You simply have to login to your Ebates account and from there navigate to the online store of your choice and you'll get a check in the mail once a quarter that you shop.
Are you doing any holiday shopping this weekend?
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating!
Be sure to eat something you love, move your body a bit, and take a moment to reflect on the good stuff in life.
