Happy Stuff Your Face Until You Want To Vomit Day !!!

So, this week is Thanksgiving week. Whether you are traveling to see family this week, or having them come to you, it's always a fun time to get together with friends and family and eat until you are literally, stuffed like a turkey. It's also a time for you to fight with relatives, want to pull your hair out , murder someone, and drink heavily..also, a fun time : ) I am going to be traveling to Dallas, Texas to see family there and i'm pretty excited about it ! A week off of work, kids have no school and did I mention all the great  food ? There's also the fact of tradition. Just about everyone I know has some sort of family tradition when it comes to the Holidays. For Thanksgiving, our family tradition is to put the Christmas tree and all decorations out a couple days before Thanksgiving,  eat and eat and eat , watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and then Home Alone. Then , of course, we always partake in Black Friday festivities....scary as they might be.  We've been doing this every year since I can even remember . This holiday week is also a week to catch up on books !! I'm still reading The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, it shames me to say so. I have been so busy these past few weeks that it's been a miracle if i've been able to read once a week ! That's another thing i'm looking forward to , is the chance to sit down and read and relax while i'm away. Although, with two small children, it might still be nearly impossible ! Anyhoo, this post was short and sweet and nothing spectaculiar, but I haven't posted anything since the beginning of October, so I thought i'd go for it. To everyone reading this, I hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving and always remember, stretch pants , although unattractive, are quite handy during this time of year.
