Well, Thanksgiving is literally a little over 24 hours away!! Aren't you excited? We are!! We're having house guests. My brother and baby sister will be crashing here at my spot since we're doing Thanksgiving at my younger sister's place.
I'm also running around like a turkey with my head cut off trying to clean up and make sure that everything is straight. I'm also getting together all my ingredients for the dishes that I'm making. I have to hunt down a recipe for a pie crust and finish cutting up my collard greens. While we're on the subject of collard greens, how come the ham bits seemed hella expensive this Thanksgiving? Anyways, I will still be having some pork dripping to season my greens with.
We're planning on going Black Friday people watching. I don't buy into the whole savings scam. You'll find the same things you're getting enticed into buying will be even cheaper the week before and of Christmas. When I worked in retail, I used to try to share this with my friends who I knew would be racing to store to get something. A lot of stores will say that they won't get those items back in stock but that's just another ploy to get you to shell out big bucks.
But that doesn't mean that I can't check out the craziness that will be surely going down. I also have a lovely gift card from Starbucks that I won over at Mrs. AOK's blog. I will be using it to enjoy some yummy coffee and a cheese danish.
Oh, I enjoyed my few days of being unplugged from the internet. I had a blast spending time down at my mom's house with her and my niece and seeing the Christmas parade. And did you all notice the Holiday Gift Guide Posts from last week?
What are you running around like a turkey doing last minute?
