Happy Friday! Jumping in on the new Friday Five fun today with 5 Things to Love About Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays and it was hard to narrow it down to 5 reasons but here goes:
5 Things To Love About Thanksgiving
I love a great race on Thanksgiving morning and I will be participating in the Bethesda Turkey Chase 10K. Not only is it a great way to get a head start on those extra calories I am going to consume but it’s the perfect way to destress and put me in a great mood for the next 4 items on my list. I will still never forget the time a guy in a full turkey suit with webbed feet blew right me. Humbling!
We host Thanksgiving dinner at our house each year for around 13 family members. (Thus the need for item #1 lol). Since we just moved into our new house, I am excited to host my parents, sisters and niece and nephews. My daughter is coming home from college today for 9 nine days and I can’t wait to spend so much time with her.
This year one of my best girl friends will be joining us for dinner as well. Thanksgiving, to me, is a time to open your home and heart to friends and I am so glad she will be joining us. Having a friend at dinner also helps with reason #2 above 🙂
Both my husband and I love to cook! As I’ve mentioned he is a total carnivore so he is in charge of the Turkey and some sort of meat. I will handle the veggie sides and dessert. We have a little bit of a bigger kitchen now so hopefully we can stay out of each other’s way!
My husband and son are big football fans so you will find them switching around between exciting games all day long. It’s hard not to get in on the fun.
So tell me, what do you love about most about Thanksgiving? Racing on Thanksgiving? Are you a football family?
