Happy Thanksgiving

I don't think I'll be reading much over the next few days. And quite honestly, that's okay because the next few days are meant for family. Today, my family will be doing dinner at my parents' house along with my sister's family. While I don't have to prepare the turkey, I will help my mom get things ready and do lots of dishes. I'll also be bringing homemade cranberry sauce, maple-glazed sweet potatoes, cranberry orange bread, and pecan pie squares.

And then tomorrow, it's all about the shopping and decorating. I know some people (including my husband) think we're crazy to go shopping on Black Friday, but it's a family tradition. I don't even plan to get much Christmas shopping done, but I wouldn't mind finding a few bargains. Then around mid-afternoon, I'll head home and decorate the house.. everything but the tree. I'll save that for Sunday when I am less tired and can actually enjoy looking at all of our ornaments.

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Oddly enough, I see myself having a lot more time to read over the long weekend than usual.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and found some great deals. We didn't buy much this black Friday and didn't find too many deals, but that's ok.
