I woke up this morning with a happy heart. I absolutely love any holiday that you get to spend with your loved ones and favorites. When I was a kid, Thanksgiving Day really wasn’t a big deal to me, but as I got older, matured into an adult, it has a completely new meaning. It’s no secret how close I am with my family. My sister and I joke about how we’d rather hang out with our parents than our own friends (we can’t help it that they’re so cool). I love making lasting memories and even new traditions with each holiday.
Today we will be cleaning up around the house and doing a little bit of cooking for this evening’s festivities. Glenn picked out a green bean casserole he wanted to prepare for dinner at my parents house and I for one am happy to let him take on that task! This morning I tried something a little new. I made breakfast (lol)! Glenn is definitely the cook in our household. Not that I can’t or do not enjoy it, but on most weeknights, I don’t get home from work until after 7 so he always has dinner ready and waiting (as well as a wine glass chilling in the freezer for me, I know, the best). He is the one to usually cook all of our meals but I came across the cutest turkey inspired cinnamon buns online that I was dying to try out. We won’t have Hunter until later this afternoon so I had to save one for him, but I think he will get the biggest kick out of it.
I couldn’t find the candy eyes so they are missing parts of their face, but I think its pretty obvious to what they are…
It also just isn’t a holiday or a week-day off without mimosas (duh).
I am currently relaxing on the couch enjoying the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade as I do every year. I’ve been watching this parade every year with my mom and sister and I look forward to sharing this tradition one day with my own children.
I want to wish everyone a HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY with all of their loved ones! CHEER!
