Thankful Thanksgiving

I had such a great Thanksgiving that I will be reviewing it in a couple posts!
This first post is just about how truly thankful this Thanksgiving made me.

First Kevin and I hitched a ride with his parents up to Colorado and surprised his Grandpa for his 80th and stayed for Thanksgiving. We drove back on Saturday and spent Sunday with my family and then drove back to AZ. I will have more on all of that later.

This was my first Thanksgiving married. This meant that it was also my first Thanksgiving away from my family. All of my family lived in Ohio. Our Thanksgivings every year was just me, mom, dad, and the sisters. It was quiet, nice, and yummy.

This one was too (except my mom still has THE best stuffing...)

But like I said this Thanksgiving really gave me a lot to be thankful for. Here is what I am thankful for in no particular order.

1. My husband.
2. My family.
3. DVR--how did I survive before it...haha. I have lots to catch up on!
4. t shirts & sweat pants--Best outfits ever...especially when you eat a lot!
5. The holidays---definitely my favorite time of the year.
6. Denver Broncos--They are doing so well.
7. My new home--A new year will mean being in our home. We own it, we made it ours (with the awesome help of my parents). OURS!
8. My job--I am truly lucky to have a job.
9. Food and drink--enough said. This is the only time of the year when you stuff your face, no one looks at you like you are a fatty.
10. Blogging--thank you internet and thank you little blog. This is fun!
And always I am thankful for mine and my family and friends health and happiness.
From our home to yours, we hope you had a happy thanksgiving holiday!

I hugged Kevin a little tighter Thanksgiving morning...

Thanksgiving morning....early early early, my Husband's cousin lost her husband in an unexpected and tragic car accident.

We were all so hurt for her.

She is a year older than me, a newlywed like me, and so nice. I can't even begin to imagine what she is going through.

All I could do when I heard the news was tell Kevin to never die.

Everyone give your husband's (and kids) an extra big hug tonight. You never know what could happen...


  1. ohhh this made my heart so sad - I will definitely be hugging mine a little tighter when he comes home. Sometimes we take a hug for granted, ya know?

  2. This was my first Thanksgiving with a serious boyfriend. Not the same, but it was the first time we split holidays between family. It was very nice spending it with two groups of people, and most of all, two dinners. But I won't lie, it was kind of a bummer to leave my family to head to another dinner. Felt a little like ditching, even though I know everyone understood, and Anthony deserved to spend time with his family too, after spending the earlier part of the day with mine.

    Cute picture!! :)

    Oh my God. That is such terrible news. I can't even imagine. And on Thanksgiving, of all days. My thoughts and prayers are with her. Such a difficult thing to go through, and probably even more difficult around the holidays. :(

  3. So sorry to hear about your husband's family. I will keep them in my prayers for sure... I absolutely CANNOT imagine. Thanks for reminding me to hug my loved ones a little more often.

    I'm glad you still got to enjoy your first married Thanksgiving. It's still just as fun the 2nd year ;)

  4. Life is just too short sometimes. So happy you were able to celebrate your 1st Thanksgiving as a married woman!

  5. I feel the same way. Life is short. I'm sorry that such a tragedy happened to her. It's so important to cherish the ones you care about for as long as possible.

    I'm happy that you had a wonderful Turkey day though. Happy belated!

  6. I know it takes something tragic to put life in perspective. Going to give my hubby an extra tight hug right now.

  7. Glad you had a great day...i decided not to celebrate this year but was thinking of you all across the pond! Loving the pic of you both! Tuesday topics tomorrow! Can't wait! xx


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
