Thanksgiving BYOC

Thanks Draz!  It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another installment of BYOC! That’s Bring Your Own Crazy!! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy and paste to your own blog if you so desire – and ENJOY!

I’m going to do a Thanksgiving themed BYOC this week (it was Jenny’s idea)!

1. What is your FAVORITE part of Thanksgiving?

The food!  What do you expect from a fatty?  I love Thanksgiving food.  Not so much the turkey (although it's good) but all the carby goodness that comes with it!  Rolls, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pie!!!  Mmmmm....I cook on Thanksgiving and I take painstaking efforts to make sure that all if it superdeliciously fantastic!
2. How many Thanksgiving family events will you attend?

Just 1.  The one I'm hosting at my mom's house.  Grateful that inlaws don't live nearby so it's not ever an option.

3. What’s your biggest Thanksgiving tradition?

We don't have BIG traditions.  Just little ones.  I take the day before off of work every year and do all my baking.  My mom and I have our first glass of eggnog Thanksgiving night to kick off the Christmas season.  We've done this since I was kid but as an adult, we've added Southern Comfort (I'm pretty sure my mom always did.  LOL).  When I was a kid, we did a cornucopia every year but since I don't have one, we don't do it at my house (I think I'd like to start this one up again).  Football and food.  Basic traditions.
4. Do you Black Friday shop the day after Thanksgiving?

Lord no!  People out there are crazy!
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog world.

Real life is good. No major concerns this week, no one in the hospital, no one having surgery...thank goodness.  I started my new job and am learning tons.  I'm trying to get everything ready for Thanksgiving and my daughter's birthday so I'm feeling the heat, so to speak, on that stuff.  

Blogland - It seems kind of quiet out there.  A couple people are gearing up for surgery next week (right before Thanksgiving...not sure how I'd do with that).  But mostly, people are just muddling through.  Seems like there's a lot of "real life" drama going on that people are going through that make focusing on weight loss difficult.  Remember...these are life blogs - not just weight loss blogs.  Sometimes getting it all out there helps.  Just sayin'. honor of the holiday.  A Thanksgiving Friday Funny.
