I love how every family has their own traditions and it is so interesting to me to see how people all over the U.S. (and the world even) celebrate Thanksgiving with their loved ones. For instance, this is my families Thanksgiving spread from last year:
Do you have several Thanksgiving celebrations you have to attend? Just one for moi!
What are your families signature dishes? We have mostly traditional dishes like turkey, giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, rolls, green beans and deviled eggs (yuck) and then things like pea salad (my mom's fave) and cranberry salad (my cousins fave). Personally, I look forward to the stuffing, turkey and gravy the most. Get in my belly ...
Do you all bring a dish or does one person cook it all? My Mom and Aunt assist, but for the most part, my Grandma cooks it all. Thanks Grandma!
What are YOUR favorite things you look forward to on Turkey Day? Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! I really hope one year I can go to the actual parade. Maybe I should start a bucket list.
So those are my answers, what are yours??? Tell me! I want to know.
My family gets in town today so I'm going on a mini bloggy break until next week. It'll be tough, but y'all will pull through without me. I just know you will.
Enjoy your time with your friends and family and remember to be thankful for what you have in your life. I know it's easy to always want the latest and greatest (guilty!), but let's take this time to be thankful for what we already have (like our health, a roof over our head and amazing readers like you).
p.s. REMINDER! For those of you participating in our "How the Glitz Stole Christmas" blogger swap, don't forget to get your shopping in this weekend. All packages have to be in the mail on or before next Monday, November 28!
