Yikes! For as long as this year has seemed, why do I seem flabbergasted that it’s the end of November and we’re getting our stuff ready for Thanksgiving? This is the weirdest year ever.
[what we’re eating]
I ran into the store to grab a few things and noticed that we apparently love breakfast and cake! haha
Although breakfast for dinner is a regular staple around here.
[what i’m reminiscing about]
Every year, my hometown does a Christmas parade the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
It’s one of my favorite things to do every year.
This year it’s cancelled. and I’m really missing it.
And my nephew.
[what i’m loving]
Since we’re spending a lot of time at home, I’m really glad that I bought these Ugg slippers.
They are extra cozy for the winter.
[what i’ve been up to]
I thought I was getting sick and I used my tried and true method to get rid of it.
I drink 1-2 fingers of the strongest whiskey/bourbon I have on hand. I then get into the shower for the longest and hottest shower I can stand. Then I bundle up into a hoodie and warm pajamas and sweat it out overnight.
I am unsure if it worked.
[what i’m dreading]
I’m not sure if we’re going to get locked down again with stay at home orders.
It’s going to be a long winter.
[what i’m working on]
I’m a wrapping machine these days!
[what i’m excited about]
Every Thanksgiving morning, my sister-in-law makes these amazing cranberry scones and we all watch the Macy’s Parade together. We are so bummed that won’t be able to spend time together this year.
But I am going to make cranberry orange muffins for us to eat while we hang out over FaceTime.
[what i’m watching/reading]
I’m watching all the Christmas movies. Which I will do through January.
We watched Home Alone the other night and while we love that movie, I was kind of feeling bad for Marv and Harry.
I mean, my back hurt watching the torture they went through!
But also, what adult would knowingly subject themselves to that kind of madness.
I think after my hair was burned off or I stepped on a nail with my bare feet, I would have given up and gone home to take a million tablets of motrin!
I’ve loved all of Jenny Colgan’s Christmas books.
So I picked this one up and I’m sure I’ll love it!
[what i’m listening to]
Christmas music is in repeat over here. 🙂
[what i’m wearing]
I’m loving this new sweatshirt for Christmas. It’s super comfy and so cute!
[what i’m looking forward to]
The holidays are going to look very different for everyone this year.
I’m actually looking forward to seeing what kinds of fun things The Hubster and I can do together.
We’ve never spent Thanksgiving week at home, so I’m sure the town has some fun light up night activities that we’ll get to go to.
[what else is new]
I’m decorating for Christmas and I’m so happy to have my nutcrackers back!
The gentleman on the right has a hand that keeps falling off, so I’m going to have to do a little surgery on him.
But they make me so happy!
