Giving Thanks

When I found out I wasn't going to be able to go home for Thanksgiving, I was quite depressed. But the day turned out to be great after all. Hubby and I woke up and noshed on orange cinnamon rolls while watching the Macy's parade together. We then had a big dinner with my husband's family and filled our stomachs with deep fried turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, and cheese muffins. For dessert, I made sweet potato pie and chocolate gingerbread bars. I will be sharing the recipes for those soon.

I am still undecided as to whether I'm going to venture out into the hords of shoppers for Black Friday. I loved Black Friday when I was a child, but now I'd rather pay the extra bucks and shop in peace on a less crowded day. Hubby and I exchanged Christmas wish lists the other day, so I may just sit in front of the computer with a big mug of hot chocolate and online shop to my heart's content.

On this day I am thankful for these things (among many others):

--My family
--My wonderful husband
--My precious little dog Heaven
--My faith
--Amazing friends
--The fact that I am almost one semester closer to being done with doctor school
