Tuesday Thankfulness

Only one more day and Thanksgiving will be here so hopefully everyone is in the spirit and focusing on what they are thankful for this holiday season.

I'm thankful for my loving husband who has been there for me for the past 4 years. 

I'm thankful for my supportive and generous parents who sometimes still spoil us like we're kids.

I am thankful for the amazing memories of loved ones that have passed, most recently my grandmother and college friend, Sally. 

I'm thankful for my job and all the fun parties and company trips they host. 

I am thankful for my close group of girl friends, whether they are near or far. Distance or time has never changed or weakened our friendship.

I'm thankful for my favorite cocktail ~ dirty martinis with blue cheese olives.  The perfect drink for dinner dates with K. 

I'm also thankful for: 
-  fuzzy socks, sweaters and throw blankets
-  coffee on a Monday morning
-  my little car that hardly gets affected by gas prices
-  that I live in Florida, especially during the "winter" months
-  that my birthday and Christmas are right around the corner

Finally, I am thankful for our lovely home that has been in work in progress for the past two years with decorating and furnishing and I'm sure we'll have more projects to share in the future ;-)

Thanksgiving Potluck

As much as Mondays come way too quickly and suck 99.5% of the time, we had our Fall Potluck at work today which was sorta fun.

There were about 25 entrees, sides and desserts which included chilli, pot roast, meatballs, various salads & casseroles and a ton of desserts - cake, cookies, pies. My favorite were the pigs in a blanket stuffed with bacon and jalapenos made with crescent rolls.

Some of the more interesting dishes were Spam & Green Bean Casserole (yuck) and Bacon Pumpkin Pie ~ I didn't try either although my coworkers were trying to convince me the bacon pumpkin pie was delicious. I do love bacon!

I'm thankful we only have 2 more days of work til the long weekend!
