Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Who’s ready for some delicious food headed their way today?? I know I. Am. Pumped. And as much as I loved hosting Thanksgiving last year, I’m feeling pretty thankful for not having to do it this year…it’s exhausting!
So last night, Jay and I enjoyed a quiet evening in, ordered some food for dinner, watched a movie, and I finished up the rest of my desserts.
I cannot even begin to tell you how ready I am to dig into this thing.
And hey, look…no cracks while rolling! I was *this close* to cutting off the edges to, you know, make them look a little more pretty.
But then I figured I better just wait.
The cheesecake is also looking mighty tempting.
I followed Kristen’s recipe exactly, except I added a sprinkle of some toffee bits on top because, well, everything is better with toffee bits, isn’t it?
The cheesecake is coming with us to my parents’ house, which is our first stop of the day, but I’ll have to wait until later on for my pumpkin roll, since that’s going to Jay’s aunt’s house later this evening. Ohhh, the suspense!
This morning, Jay and I were both up pretty early, mostly because he had to get ready to go play some football with the guys. So I took advantage of the extra leisurely time and decided to do my own little makeshift Turkey
Trot Walk on the treadmill while cracking up at Josh Elliot hose the “game show” on GMA this morning. Did anyone else watch that today? My gosh, I love him.
So yeah, not quite a 5K on the treadmill, but close enough.
Shortly after finishing up on the treadmill, I came back upstairs to make some breakfast.
I figure I’m going to pretty much have the carbs covered for the rest of today, so I made an attempt to fill up on some other food groups this morning.
Half of a grapefruit sprinkled with brown sugar (so good, by the way…I need to buy these more often)
And some scrambled eggs with lots of spinach and ketchup.
Now that breakfast is taken care of, I think it’s about time to get showered up and ready for today. Boy, I have so much to be thankful for this year!
Wishing everyone a wonderful day, whether you’re celebrating Turkey Day or not!
