Thanksgiving 2012

I hope everyone had an AMAZING Thanksgiving!

(rewind to Thursday morning)

The day started with a trip to the gym. That’s right, I made it the past 4 days- WAHOOO!

I choose to do the muscle works class again, instead of yoga. (I needed to sweat)

Then it was running around for my mom, since it was at my parents house.

Finally at 11, it was time to eat breakfast, and relax with Andrew. We watched the parade (I recorded while I was working out) Did anyone else think the lip singing/music was way off and soft?

Around 3, we packed up and headed BACK to my parents’ house. I was on sweet potato duty.

I borrowed a pretty awesome apronĀ  to wear šŸ˜‰

Then it was time to eat!

Turkey, sweet potatoes, green beans, raisin dressing, cranberries, cucumbers, and veggies

Desserts! Yep we had 6 pies, and 2 we never got out! I guess everyone brought pies this year haha

The after dinner party:

The boys acting goofy. Yep. That’s Andrew ON TOP of the car

I hope everyone had a great day!

Question for you:

What did you do for Thanksgiving?

Did you go Black Friday shopping?


One on One

Had a great day today! Started out w/ breakfast with Andrew before sending him off to school. I then went to help my mom (who is hosting the family for thanksgiving) get some food ready.

We madeĀ THREE pies:Ā pumpkin, lemon and chocolate. Green beans, sweet potatoes and cucumbers. (my mouth was ALREADY ready for thanksgiving!)

Andrew got home from school, and it was time for lunch! Sweet potato fries, chicken and veggies w/ a sprinkle of parmesan. (I did have a few tootsie rolls for dessert- not paleo, but Ididn’t eat a million like I use to!)

After hanging out, it was time to clean! this house needed it! Andrew did help a lot, but then took a mini break haha. Love his funny face!

After dinner, I had yoga on the schedule! My neighbor Pam and I got a groupon and found this AWESOME yoga place. This is actually our second groupon w/ them.

Well, Pam kindof bailed. But instead of saying “ok Im going to stay home too” I left the house and got my butt to the yoga studio. And it was JUST ME and the teacher!

At first, I was like PLLEASE someone else come. And then when no one did, I just embraced the opportunity. I actually did a new pose too!

But I didn’t do it in heels! haha


Question for you:

What are you doing for thanksgiving?

What household chore do you HATE?
