Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
On Tuesday night, Dave & I hosted a Friendsgiving party with 8 of our favorite friends. After our company left, I told Dave my stomach hurt from laughing so hard. That’s always a sign of a good party in my book. It was the perfect way to kick off our holiday week and I went to bed with a smile on my face, a full belly and a full heart.
On Wednesday morning I ran 6.5 miles, which was a run fueled by mulled wine, pumpkin spice donuts, sweet potato casserole and lots of Christmas tunes – that’s the way all holiday runs should be, in my opinion.
Later that afternoon, Dave hung Christmas lights while I took Atlas on a playdate with one of my girlfriends and her daughter and then we rounded out the evening with a movie night at our neighbor’s house. We watched the Polar Express (Atlas’ favorite movie of all time), drank hot chocolate and popped popcorn. Pure holiday perfection.
I sure miss my family this holiday (we opted to avoid the holiday traffic and stay home rather than travel to Florida), but I feel so incredibly thankful to be surrounded by such sweet friends and of course, my sweet husband and babies.
I’m also so very thankful for each of you! I hope you have the happiest Thanksgiving surrounded by your favorite people. Today I’m cooking a mini feast for my little family of 4 (6 if you count Ob & Marley) and we have plans to decorate our Christmas tree so I’m excited to continue in the festivities! 🙂
What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Mine is my mom’s dressing. For sure. But broccoli casserole is a close second for me.
