It's Almost Here...

I've been eating Thanksgiving stuff almost every meal since Sunday and yet I still couldn't be more excited for dinner tomorrow night with my mom and lunch on Thurs with my dad! We had leftovers from the Stafford Thanksgiving last night and this morning I enjoyed my favorite breakfast of vanilla and pumpkin spice granola topped with my homemade cranberry sauce....DELICIOUS!!!

We've got a busy few days ahead of us. Ben is finishing up projects and exams, while finding some time to work a few hours between Thanksgiving dinners. Work is busy for me trying to get Oct. ad-hoc things wrapped up before Nov. close starts on Monday. Nevermind the usual list of laundry, grocery shopping and now packing for our Asheville trip!!

I've been working all week on our itinerary:
Friday-Early Black Friday Shopping with Sara, On the road at 930am to Asheville, Lunch at Asheville Pizza Co, Arrive at our cabin, unload and enjoy the rest of the evening by the fire with appetizers, desserts and wine for dinner.

Saturday-Omelettes, Bacon and Coffee for breakfast, dowtown Asheville for shopping, lunch and beer browsing, a possible trip to the Grove Park in to see the Gingerbread House display, back to the Cabin for a special dinner with dessert and a dip in the Hot Tub.

Sunday-French Toast, Bacon and Mimosas for breakfast, pack up and drive to Boone for lunch at Macado's, Christmas Tree farm to find the perfect tree and drive home.

Just a few more days left in my Gratitude Challenge, but yesterday's and today's list includes:

~Tervis Tumblers: We have several of these and I use one every night. I have to have water on my nightstand and these are prefect for not sweating.

~Family Dinners where everyone brings something: I love potluck...it helps the hostess so the cooking doesn't fall on them and there are tons of choices!

~Soup: I eat it almost every day!

~Good smelling candles: Right now I'm obsessed with fall scents and these make the house smell so delicious.

~Black Friday ads early: I'm a planner and I like knowing what's on sale before the ads hit my doorstep on Thursday.

~Doggie shampoo: Freddie is getting a bath tonight with the most yummy smelling dog shampoo...he needs it bad!

Yesterday while we were out shopping we went into Bath Junkie at University Mall. It may not be new to you...but it was new to us. They have all the regular things, bubble bath, shower gel, candles...the list goes on and on. You choose a scent that you like...from approximately 200 and they add it to the base formula so your stuff smells exactly the way you want it to. Anyway, they have doggie shampoo too! Your gratitude list for today made me think of it. Have fun in Asheville!
