Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I hope each and every one of you has a great day today, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not. It’s still always good to remember all the blessings we have and be thankful for everything in our lives.

This morning has been great!

I got up and laid in bed with my mom for an hour, just talking about all kinds of stuff. We got up and ate breakfast while watching the parade.


It took me forever to decide what to have for breakfast today! I kept finding other things I wanted, but I tried to remember that we’re having a huge lunch today so I wanted something filling but not too heavy – I want to be hungry when lunchtime rolls around!


I made myself a bowl of ab & j oatbran, and it was perfect.

  • 1/3 cup oatbran
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp or so strawberry jam


I had some water and split a mini pot of coffee with my dad, too.

Now we’re all showered and watching Tommy Boy  :)  One of my favorites – I know the whole movie by heart. It’s a little ridiculous.

I’ve got to dry my hair and then start helping in the kitchen.


In the spirit of Thanksgiving, what are you thankful for today?

Be back with pictures of the feast!

    I go to school out of state and many people tell me that coming back home isn’t fun because they really don’t have any friends left at home…Last night, I went out with 14 of my friends from high school and had an absolute blast.

    I’m thankful for friendships that remain through thick and thin and miles of distance :)
