I know!  It’s been forever and I need to get better @ this.  I promise I will try harder.

Anyway, who’s excited for Thanksgiving?  I have a five day weekend because I get Monday off!!!!!  On Thursday I’m going to my Mom’s side and then my Dad’s side.  On Friday I’m going to Minnesota for two days to see my cousin preform at UMN.  I’m pretty siked!  Then on Monday we might go to Chicago.

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?  Are you obsessed with the turkey or do you dig into the green bean casserole like me?  I like everything and I wait 365 days to get this kind of food so my portion control might be a little unbalanced.

I know I’m making this post super long but am I the only one that categorizes the houses I go to during Thanksgiving.  It’s like my Mom’s side is always fun.  I have cousins who are around my age and we have lots of fun.  However, it’s kind of like a pot-luck where everyone brings in something.  Sometimes this goes bad because someones on a diet kick and made the mashed potatoes or someones on that South Beach Diet and decides to bring in brick hard stuffing.  Then theres my Dad’s side where there really isn’t much to do but eat because all of it is handmade my my Grandma!!!  I feel like a nerd for getting this all down to a science; yet, somehow I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who has opposites for extended families.

Text me, call me, email me, comment, rate!

I miss you guys!

I Saved a Turtle

I know it’s kind of late but I’ve had so much to blog about lately!  I can’t get it all into one post…   One thing I meant to tell you on Monday, was that I saved a turtle!  Yah, no joke.  It was on the highway coming home from my Grandparent’s (dad’s side) house in Big Bend.  It wasn’t enormous but fairly big.  It was scared at me at first.  One of its arms had been run over so I wanted to get it to a nearby pond.  That way it wouldn’t be road-kill again.  When I tried to pull it out of the grass I realized it had a great grip but I eventually got him and when I did, he went into his shell.  I put him in a pond by my grandparent’s  house and we all lived, “Happily Ever After!”  As far as I know…   I feel like a hero!
