Thanksgiving 2013 Recap

I can’t believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone but I had such a great day. To start it off I made a “Thanks Giving” list of some of the things that I’m grateful for. On it I included things like my health, my purpose, and for sure this blog. I’m so grateful to have a space where I can express myself, share my interests, and hopefully inspire people. My only contribution to the menu was mashed potatoes which turned out to be a last minute, but very delicious addition. My sister and I tag teamed it! I tried my best not to overindulge but with sweet potato cornbread muffins, sweet potato pie, and peach cobbler it was a challenge to say the least! I’m not even a big peach cobbler person but my sister did an amazing job! All of the food was great. Sorry that I didn’t take more pictures but my priority was more focused on eating and trying not to immediately fall asleep afterwards.

Now I can’t talk about Thanksgiving without mentioning Black Friday. To be perfectly honest though, we should start calling it Black Thursday. Most of the deals I saw including those at Target, Walmart, and Best Buy, just to name a few stores, started on Thursday. Each year these sales and doorbusters start earlier and earlier. It’s gotten completely out of hand. Pretty soon people will be packing their Thanksgiving meals in lunch boxes and eating while they’re lined up outside (some people probably did that this year). Yes, the deals may be good, and I do love a good deal, but some things should be sacred. I didn’t do any “Black Friday” shopping per se but I did do some shopping (and yes it was actually on Friday). I went to two stores and got some beautiful jewelry and a great weekender bag. 

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you get any good stuff during Black Friday?
