I'm Thankful

It's definitely been way too long since the last blog post! wow. With that said, I'd like to share how we spent our Thanksgiving this year.

I MADE A TURKEY!!! Yes, my very own first.turkey.ever. And, it was yummy! I got the recipe from a nurse at work. She said to stuff it full of things that would let off moisture. So, I cut up celery, carrots, an apple, orange, a lemon, and threw it all in. Added some vegetable oil, pepper & spices to the top, then I draped it with BACON! It was the most moist turkey I've ever had. I hope to be in charge of the turkey every year! Seriously.
the only picture I got of the turkey was before it was cooked. Better luck next year with an "after" photo

And this is how Daddy & Ginger prepared for Thanksgiving dinner

Shannon and I grabbed the turkey & Ginger, loaded up the car, and went over to my mom's house to spend the evening with her and my sister, Erin. My mom made all the sides and dessert. It was really nice & relaxing... and holy moly I was miserably full when we left. 

I was able to snap a few photos of my mom, who chose to stay behind Ginger in efforts to hide the fact she wasn't wearing any makeup. Nice try :)  Yes, she will probably kill me for posting these.

I'm so thankful for my life. I'm thankful for my HUSBAND Shannon, and all the love he gives me.  I'm thankful for my family, friends, job (even though I can't stand it most of the time), pets, home, car, talents, and especially chapstick! haha. Had to throw that one in there.
if you would have asked me 5 years ago how I thought my life would be, I would have never dreamed this reality. I'm so blessed.
