Happy Thoughts #7

  1. Kind of an obvious one, but it was so amazing having Thanksgiving with the whole family (including my grandparents and Jake) this year. The food (and wine) was fantastic, and the company even more so. Amazing day with amazing people.
  2. Sooo much pumpkin pie. Yum.
  3. Seeing my high school friends. One of my absolute favorite parts of this week was having some of my best friends from high school home and getting to hang out with them and Jake together. It was amazing to catch up, and even though we don't get to see each other all too much, when we're together it feels like no time has passed at all.
  4. My five year high school reunion. Perhaps one of the most hilarious/fun/drunken/awkward/bizarre nights of my life. It was so strange seeing people I haven't seen since high school, but it was also kind of awesome to catch up. Plus, going with a few of my best friends made it a pretty amazing experience.
  5. Sooo much wine and hard apple cider. The amount of drinks that were consumed this week made me feel like I was back in college.
  6.  Lots of football. I'm a big fan, and one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving day was getting to watch the games.
  7. Having all my brothers home. My oldest brother's away at college, and the two in high school always seem to be out and about. Having them home together was a rare, but nice, experience.
  8. Starting to Christmas shop!
  9. Surviving Black Friday. It's my fourth year of working retail on Black Friday (oh gosh, I need a new career) and I always have such relief when it's over each year.
  10. Burning Christmas candles! I'll admit that working in retail makes me get into the holiday spirit a little bit early, but one of my favorite little things to do is burn Christmas-y type candles. This year's favorites so far are Bath and Body Work's Merry Mistletoe and Diptyque's Resine.

    1. It's amazing! I just burned the last of it and am trying to control myself from going out and buying another one!
