The ABCs of Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving being tomorrow, it’s important to give thanks (especially to the cook).

I know it’s easy to focus on all of that tasty food and forget about being thankful. That’s why I’m giving thanks now, so later I can give that huge plate of mashed potatoes and gravy my full attention.

Remember Randy from A Christmas Story? That’ll be me. Except there will be gravy. Lots and lots of gravy.

Here’s a list of things I am thankful for—ABC style:

  • Apple pie with ice cream
  • Blueberry muffins
  • Chocolate
  • Doughnuts
  • Esme (And Isabel and Teva)
  • Family and friends
  • Grandparents (As more of my friends’ grandparents pass away, I’m exceedingly grateful that all of mine are still alive and well.)
  • Home (I love my new place with Blarney, but I love that my parents’ home is always open to me.)
  • Ice cream
  • Job (that I have one)
  • Kiefer and the boys
  • Love
  • Mashed potatoes and gravy
  • Naps
  • Oranges (Real ones, not chocolate ones.)
  • Pop-Tarts (I know you saw this one coming.)
  • Quotes
  • Roommate (Blarney rocks!)
  • Shopping
  • Twinkies
  • Uranus (That planet always makes me giggle.)
  • Velveteen rabbits (Awww….)
  • Winter
  • Xanadu (Putting “xylophones”—the only X word I know—here just didn’t seem right.)
  • You (My blog readers are [to quote The Unabridged Girl] awesomesauce.)
  • Zombies

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I eat lots of sugar. It's the only way to keep up with my new baby and to outrun zombies. View all posts by thoughtsappear
