TGIF Favs 3

Good Morning and Happy last Friday before Thanksiving!!

Did you already buy your turkey? We have not, but our family goes over to a friends house and we bring sides so we don't need to get a turkey, nor do we have to clean up woohoo!

I thought I'd share my favorite things about Thanksgiving since I won't be posting next Friday.

1. Food! I love the homemade food everybody dishes out. Last year I started eating cranberry sauce with my stuffing (I never ate the sauce before) and it's a total game changer. We had a potluck at work this week with a lot of Thanksgiving foods and the bonus was the addition of spanish influence and it was probably one of the best potlucks I've been to.

What's your favorite potluck food to bring?

2. People. Being able to see people that I only see every so often, maybe only this once a year is always something to be thankful for.

3. Decorating for Christmas. We put our tree up the day after, usually after we've done some shopping. We also watch all the Christmas movies but Hallmark started early I feel this year so we're already watching those, lol.

4. Black Friday. All of the sales and now that I can buy most of my stuff on the internet and don't have to do the crowds is AMAZING!

5. The parade!! Cannot forget the parade. On my bucket list is to book a fancy vaca where I can stay on the parade route in NYC someday. Oh dreams.

What are your favorite things about Thanksgiving? Linking up with Amanda!


  1. I made from scratch cranberry sauce one year and that's the only way I eat it now!! So good! Happy Friday girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. CRAP you have reminded me that I meant to take my turkey out of the freezer and have not.

  3. I'm SO excited for Thanksgiving next week! We're picking up our turkey today, but yay for you for not needing to cook a turkey or any clean up <3

  4. We always go to Chris's parents house for lunch and my mom's for I do no cooking on Thanksgiving and its fabulous! I do help with the clean up at both places though. This year, baby might be a good excuse to not do as much though lol. I love Black Friday shopping and watching the parade. When I was little, we used to put the tree up Thanksgiving night. I dont really have a day I do it the same every year yet...but hopefully I will narrow that down. Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

  5. Cranberry sauce is a definite game changer! I think my favorite types of food are the side dishes—green bean casserole, stuffing, sweet potatoes… just all of it.

    I hope you have a great Thanksgiving—yay for not having to worry about clean-up! We’ll visit my boyfriend’s family in Southern California and am so excited for the delicious food and to see family we haven’t seen since, well, last Thanksgiving :)

    Yes to buying Black Friday sales on the Internet yet! I can’t believe my parents used to endure those crowds…
