My mom said that the photo of the cranberry sauce was a classic, so it only makes sense to include it at the top of a “happy thanksgiving” post. Right? Year after year we have canned cranberry sauce on our thanksgiving dinner table because it’s “classic”, but year after year nobody ever touches it. Do you have anything like that at your thanksgiving? No? Just us?
Our day consisted of sleeping in, cooking a sweet potato casserole + applesauce, heading off to my parents house to celebrate, and then just when we thought we couldn’t eat any more, we headed over to Zack’s mom’s house to celebrate + eat some more. It was a good day, guys. A really good day. Though it’s hard not to be a fan of days that revolve around food..and being thankful.
As we were eating, my sister thought it would be ironic to go around the dinner table and talk about what we would buy if we won the lottery..and HAD to be greedy. Maybe this is overly cliche, but it was difficult coming up with what I would spend my money on. It’s a good feeling knowing that you are happy with your life exactly how it is now. I said I would buy a bunch of new lenses that are on my wish list, but Zack reminded me that I wouldn’t spend nearly all my winnings doing that. I think Zack and I both agree though that our lottery winnings would go to purchasing ocean front property in northern California, as long as it is within an hour, hour and a half if it’s absolutely perfect, of San Francisco. Even though we love life exactly how it is here in Ann Arbor, we do have dreams too ;) Don’t worry though, the next thing we talked about is what we are thankful for. Our dinner, family, friends, health. You know, the usual stuff. But I still smiled hearing my loved ones say those same things. I’m thankful for yesterday. And because apparently we are very forgetful, we said grace just as we were finishing dinner. I love you sis for remembering.
..the center of attention during the whole evening, the little kitten my family rescued out at my dad’s work abandoned in the cold. They have been taking care of it and bottle feeding the little guy ever since. So precious.
..an obligatory picture of my plate. All the good stuff..and more!
..And let’s all take another moment to be thankful for self timers and nobody being left out of family photos.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! And YAY for holiday season officially being in full swing!
