Givin' thanks

I really hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. It's one of those holidays that put some retrospective back in lives...makes you remember what's really important, hence THANKSgiving.

With that said, let me note what I am sooo thankful for. I am thankful for my seriously wonderful family. Really, they are the most important thing to me in the world. They give me endless love (even when I dye my hair purple...le topic of le weekend) I'm so thankful for those friends I have back in the city (yea, the ones we have priceless night after priceless nights with). Seriously no one can replace any of them. They are the reason I'm so happy where I'm at right now in my life. I'm so thankful for my health. I know I can be a bit of a hypocondriach but really, I'm a super lucky girl to be alive and well. I hope people learn not to take their health forgranted.

But Thanksgiving was a lovely day with the usu. tons o' food, family, and football (oof). I ate so much, but watched I didn't feel icky after inhaling all the goods. I took just a lil of everything instead of the usual heaps of food (my eyes are bigger than my belly). One thing I did switch up this year was that I went for the blueberry pie instead of the pumpkin. I hadn't had blueberry pie in a while, and since my aunt made it from fresh berries she picked herself up in Maine, I just had to try some. Wow, it was delicious. I could actually go for some now.

After all that food, all I really wanted to do was rest, and trust me I did. Sleep has been one thing I've been getting enough of at home. I don't have anywhere to go or be that I can just completely rest. It feels nice.

I got to meet up with my girl, Nicole (aka Niquealla). We go back all the way to the days of elementary school. If I come home and don't get to see her, it's just not the same. Her and Julie are my girls (my hometown Curbside Gang, if you will). Julie is, of course, still in LA. One of these days, she'll come home for the holidays. But since, to Nicole and I, once Thanksgiving is over, it's officially time for Christmas movies and singalongs. We went to see Fred Claus...not a five star, but it filled the Christmas requirements. I felt all merry inside when it was over.

I'm excited for this next month to be filled with lots of cheer. No scrooges allowed here!
