Thanksgiving Weekend Plans 11/23 – 11/25

I hope everyone in the US had a great Thanksgiving yesterday! My family had a great day spending time together, cooking, and relaxing. One of my favorite parts about Thanksgiving weekend has always been the day after because it means the Christmas season is finally here! I can only wait so long…haha. Here’s what I have planned for the rest of the holiday weekend…
– The tree is officially set up at our house. Now it’s time to pull out all of the ornaments, lights, and Christmas music. 
– I love this sugar cookie tea so much. I think I will have a cup with some leftover apple pie later tonight. 😉
– I have a few crochet projects to work on for upcoming issues of Gathered that I am really excited about. I also need to finish a custom scarf order in this pretty purple. 
– We are going to a “Christmas On The Square” event nearby this weekend. I can’t wait to see all of the decorations and take lots of pictures. It is such a beautiful time of the year! 
– Also, I will be getting orders together for my Black Friday shipping sale happening in my Etsy shop until tomorrow evening.

Also, I thought I would share an update about the Turkey Trot! It went really well except for when I tripped over a gas cover in the street and slammed into the ground. Not fun. I got a few scrapes and bruises, but thanks to a kind stranger who quickly got me back on my feet, I finished the race. It was such a great feeling of accomplishment. I can finally check “running a 5k” off my life goal list. Thank you for all of the encouragement over the past few months! :)

I hope you have a great weekend! What are you up to? Is your tree up yet? Are you doing any holiday shopping?

    LOVE that you have Bing’s album as an LP!

  3. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but I joined in with the Black Friday madness for the first time in my shop. So I somehow wish we had Thanksgiving. Thinking about everything the holiday means, it’s a pity we don’t have it here.

    The tree will be up at the beginning of December. I just can’t believe the end of the year is so near..

    Happy weekend!!

    Oh poor you, I hope your knees are OK – I did just that myself a few weeks ago and it reminded me how much grazes hurt … it’s made me more sympathetic with my kids when they fall over too – I used to just pick them up and brush down their knees, now I remember how really sore it is!!!

    As for Christmas… I’ve been ‘in the mood’ for almost two weeks(lots of baking, tea, some Christmas music and decorations) but we don’t buy a tree until like a week before Christmas, because we always have ‘real’ ones; I loooove the smell of fresh pine trees in the house :)

    On the surface, moving over to play with Peyton Manning seems
    like a sideways move, but it is not. This spares you the rush and the possibility
    of disappointment besides giving you a number of seating options and the best possible prices.
    These movements become second nature, and the body is able to quickly respond to
    the various angles required.
