It’s finally Thanksgiving week and the count down is on for turkey, stuffing and NPD dessert. To this day I have no idea what NPD stands for but the mystery makes it that much more appealing. It’s pure goodness and that’s all that I require to know.
Every year my family wakes up early on Thanksgiving Day and heads to Dallas. My dad’s side of the family is from there and it is usually the one time of year that we get to see everyone. We all (I’m talking about 30 people or so) gather at my great aunt’s house and will spend all day here. Since I like to think of Thanksgiving as a marathon and not a sprint, I brace myself to eat all day long and veg out accordingly. I admittedly usually eat at least 3 meals and will continue to snack all day. No shame in my stuffing game 🙂
Thankfully I have a family that enjoys wine as much as I do so it makes dealing with watching football all day a little more bearable. About half of the fam will go to the Cowboys game. I have gone a few years now but it is usually a game time decision on who will go. Not going to lie, most of the time the couch wins out and I stay home to cuddle up next to a big glass of wine.
Once every one returns home, there is almost always a few games of poker. Ever since my sisters and I were little, my dad would each give us $20 to play. To this day, that tradition remains. I have yet to win, but I’m feeling a little lucky this year so I’ll keep you guys updated on any poker winnings.
The day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, we are the crazies that battle the mass crowds. Since this is really the first year that I will also be blogging while there, it should be very interesting. Since I find out about all of the sales early, I will be updating you guys first on the best sales out there so make sure to be checking the blog and my Instagram for updates.
I am only working 3 days this week so I am a happy girl. I hope all of you have a great week and enjoy your Thanksgiving break with your loved ones! If you have yet to decide what to wear, I shared 4 outfit ideas earlier this week that should be able to help you out! And if there is any other crazies out there that plan on battling the crowds for Black Friday, may the odds be ever in your favor 😉
