my turkey day

yesterday was pretty much perfect for me. i woke up and went to the gym for my favorite workout STRIKE! with my favorite people. then i came home and had a yummy breakfast just in time to watch the end of the macy's thanksgiving day parade. the afternoon was spent watching "love actually" (LOVE that movie) and putting up christmas decorations.
my house completely transforms at christmastime and i love it. it is a big chore putting up all the decorations put oh so worth it. i rearrange my whole entire living room, and it is quiet the task cleaning and putting everything in its place.
here are all the decorations
the moving of the couches to make room for the tree
i didn't get to the tree yesterday, but did get everything up before having to make a corn casserole then head out the door to my friend Sara's house for thanksgiving dinner.

i'm so thankful to have such a tight knit group of friends. all of whom i have met at the gym. after dinner we had fabulous fun x-rated conversation! the food was perfect...turkey, gravy, stuffing, green bean casserole, cheese pudding, scallops potatoes, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn casserole, salad, and rolls.
...and the best for last:
dessert
sopapilla cheesecake, brownie truffle, and pecan pie ~ all courtesy of Sarah, AKA BFC.
so good!
