I hope you all enjoy the fat and lazy feeling you'll have later today! For now, I'm up early (well, earlier than everyone else) to get the turkey going. Then deviled eggs, baked beans, jello salad, green bean casserole, and surprisingly - aside from heating the ham and rolls, that's IT! Usually we end up with like, five different kinds of potatos, three different stuffings, and an assortments of other totally unnecessary (but nevertheless delicious) side dishes that sit in our refrigerators for a week before they end up getting tossed, because no one - NO ONE - could possibly manage to finish all that food. And while I must confess to gorging on Thanksgiving food for a day or two after the big day, round about day three, I want to poke myself in the eye with the wishbone...

So this year is simple. Just the basics. I even bought a Costco Pumpin Pie. And the shame is nearly overtaking me. But I must confess that it is way better and faster than what I would have made. How do I know it's better? Well, after Eric cut into it last night - I couldn't say no, since it's just us this year (and my mom and sis and her fiancee) - I felt that the tiny slice I cut myself for breakfast wouldn't even be noticed. No judgement, people! 

As if I worry about judgement after sharing half of this cheese platter and a bottle of Moscato with my mom for dinner last night...
Oh, and in case you don't know, there is still time to enter the Grandmother's Buttons giveaway! You have until Saturday to enter to win that adorable and amazing necklace and then I will announce the winner on Tuesday!

Well, that's all for me today - time to put my hand in places of a turkey that should never be touched...
See you on Tuesday!
