Happy Thanksgiving!

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving!
Yes, here in the US we are celebrating Thanksgiving. You know that American holiday based on the first meal the Native Americans shared with the Pilgrims that's now just the event that's right before the mother of all retail sales, "BLACK FRIDAY"...seriously? I don't even brave the whole Black Friday sales - Jesus could be opening the doors and Elvis could be working the cash register and I wouldn't even go.

I like to sleep!

Seriously, some of these stores are opening their doors at midnight tonight! I think we have lost sight of what matters most - time with our loved ones.

Also, that's why online shopping was created!

Some things I am thankful for:
  • My wonderful husband, Mr. Lex
  • My family - especially my awesome sisters - I couldn't have asked for better best friends!
  • My wonderful friends that have my back through thick and thin
  • My health - I bitch about my weight a lot but I am thankful that I have the strength and ability just to walk up three flights of stairs. I should also remind myself that the average Thanksgiving meal is roughly 3500 calories while I am making my plate!
  • And last but not least, I try my hardest to be the best I can be for her:

Mini Cupcake keeps me grounded and reminds me what is truly important: stop and take the time to sit and watch The Powerpuff Girls with her!

Have a Happy Holidays to my fellow bloggers and readers celebrating today. I'll be back!

  2. Hi Lisa, Thanks!! Did you guys do anything special to commemorate this American holiday while in Germany?

  3. Great Thanksgiving post! Hope you had a great one :) I skipped the whole Black Friday madness but did a little online shopping, mostly for nail polish (as if I need any more haha) :)

  4. Thanks MM - I am on the hunt for that Fozzie OPI polish because of your Muppet OPI post weeks back! I never do the whole Black Friday - I don't understand it. Plus, I'm usually broke by the time it happens!
