"Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, let's use this week's Hop to share what we are most thankful for and what our holiday traditions are!"
I am so thankful for so many things in my life. Hands down the thing I am most thankful for is my family. I don't know what I would do with out my parents -- they are my biggest fans and have stuck by me through thick and thin. I'm also incredibly thankful that I found the love of my life so early on. My boyfriend is incredible and I'm thankful that I've got the support, and love from him as well -- he is my rock.
For Thanksgiving, when we go visit my parents, Thanksgiving is a blast! We spend the day before Thanksgiving running around and making sure we've got all of the ingredients we need to cook and usually start getting some stuff prepared. I love the togetherness of Thanksgiving!! My mom and I found out a few years ago that the outlet mall that is by her house opens at Midnight on Thanksgiving for Black Friday. As a joke the first year we found out we were pumped and ready to go. My dad and boyfriend thought we were crazy, but since neither of us had ever gone out in the mad rush before, we thought it would be fun. IT WAS A BLAST!!!! So, ever since, we've gone every year! We usually spend Thanksgiving morning together, in the kitchen, and have an early dinner. Everyone usually watches a little football and naps throughout the day. My mom and I will eat dinner and then hurry up and get into bed at or before 6pm! We've gotta get our beauty sleep in so we can fight the crowds! We will wake up at 11 and get rolling! It is so much fun!!
How do you spend your Thanksgiving?
