5 Things I'm Grateful For On Thanksgiving

Normally I'd do a Things That Annoy Me post. But since it's Thanksgiving, I felt it only appropriate that I do a Things That I'm Thankful For post.

1. My children, even though they are loud and hurt my ears at times.

2. My husband, even though he leaves the toilet seat up and I fall in when I wake up to pee at 2 AM because my bladder isn't what it used to be after having HIS children so maybe, maybe, he could possibly lower the seat?

3. Diet Coke, even though people whine that it's bad for me. I need it, guys.

4. Books, even though I'm running out of space for them. But I love the smell of a book.

5. Target, even though I don't understand how I can't get out of the store spending less than $50.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! If you don't celebrate Thanksgiving today, Happy Thursday! If you are going shopping, don't get trampled!

Hey, It's Okay Tuesday!

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up and that the post you link up is a Hey, It's Okay Post. Grab the button if you'd like!

--To have laughed when Dean McDermont (Tori Spelling's husband) said that he was a great actor. What?!

--To be happy that my reserve of Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult was ready at the library. I'm loving it.

--To have been glad that I could try a bunch of Harvest Snaps flavors. Check out my review here. It's a healthy snack and doesn't taste like bark.

--To be glad other people didn't think I was crazy for my Things I Do When I Read Henry VIII Books post.

--To plan on stuffing my face on Thanksgiving. I love turkey! And mashed potatoes.

--To have already shopped the Black Friday sale at Kohls. It's already up on their website.

--To have finally finished season 2 of Orange Is The New Black. I liked it. I also picked up Orange Is The New Black from the library. The book, I mean.

--To have a giveaway for The Three Dogateers DVD here. It's a fun holiday film for the family!

--To be so happy he's home!

Things I Won't Be Doing On Thanksgiving

Are you guys ready for Thanksgiving?

I am!

Here are things I won't be doing on that day.

I won't be.... using fine china.

We'll probably be eating off these paper plates that I found for 70% off at Target two years ago.

I'm always amazed when people post their table photos. How do they keep their china together? How do they decorate so well? I am awful at decorating. How is their table not covered with toys and weird stains?

I won't be...watching what I eat.

I'm always baffled when I see all these articles on how awful it is to pig out on Thanksgiving. Experts are all, "You can consume over 2000 calories on Thanksgiving if you aren't careful." I'm like, "Calories don't count on Thanksgiving." I load up my plate with food. I put on my fat pants like Joey on Friends. I pig out. I don't feel guilty. It's a holiday. So pass me another slice of pie, thanks.

I won't be...doing crafts with the kids.

I'm amazed at the people who can cook and do crafts with their kids. I send my kids out of the kitchen and hand them the iPad. Sometimes I'll toss over Play-Doh. Hence why weird stains appear on the table.

I won't be....making turkey.

We're going to a friend's house. She's making the turkey. She also makes fabulous mashed potatoes. We're bringing the green bean casserole and stuffing. And the turkey plates pictured.

I won't be...making anything fancy.

I mean, see above. I follow the recipe for the green bean casserole on the back of the French's fried onions container. The stuffing comes from a box. I don't "do" fancy. I like to eat fancy, but I will not make it because it usually requires more than 4 steps, and I'm not a fan of things that are more than 4 steps.

I won't be....missing this guy.

Because yup, he will be home! He gets to spend the holidays with us, and then he has to go again. I'm incredibly grateful we have him for the holidays as I know some people aren't as lucky.

So what are some things you won't be doing on Thanksgiving?
