Happy Thanksgiving! Plus On This Day


thinking out loud

It’s not Thanksgiving if we don’t look back at the ever-classic picture of my son when he was six weeks old.

Also known as that time my now ex-husband placed my baby in the pan that was about to hold the Thanksgiving mashed potatoes. I remember that the kid was crying regardless (because all he ever did was cry) and all we did all day and night long was look for the place to put him to make him stop.

The mashed potato pan didn’t help but it was pretty funny for that brief moment in time. I’m so glad I took a picture of this ridiculous moment! It’s now famous in our house and we look/laugh at it every Thanksgiving morning. Back in 2003, we didn’t have smart phones or camera phones so getting a picture of something in a brief second really was rare!

So we almost always go to my aunt in the city for Thanksgiving. We will be heading there later today and I’m really excited to see my cousins and everyone!

Thanksgiving 2014  plus my Thanksgiving eating pep talk

Thanksgiving 2013 –  I spoke a lot this year about eating what you want, enjoying the holiday, and moving on from it.

On This Day:

11/23/16: Cake Tasting & Cake Studio Tour (WIAW) – Ahhh! That time I had a meeting with my pal Ron Ben-Israel (you know him right? The famous cake guy and also on Food Network?) at his cake studio. I got the grand tour AND a cake tasting.  And this is just another reason why I love my job. 🙂

11/23/15: Blueberry Pie Protein Oatmeal – I eat this recipe basically every single morning still.

11/23/14: Workout Recap 11/17 – 11/23

Wishing you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving! I’m hoping to pop in tomorrow morning with a whole bunch of Black Friday and Cyber Sales!
