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.
