First up this week, the zoo. I love it. After having 6 games in 6 days, I decided to take Wednesday off (which gave me two days off in a row because of Thanksgiving) so I trip to the zoo was planned. It’s a Deas family tradition to go to the zoo the day after Thanksgiving, but because I had to work on Friday, Wednesday had to do. It was so much fun! I saw a two-headed snake, climbed through fishing nets, watched the giraffes sun, and stared down a leopard. Not a bad way to spend the day!
I love it
Next up, actually having a Thanksgiving. I love it. I will admit that I was totally planning on having my “usual” solo Thanksgiving of pizza and ice cream, but Brian thought that making an actual dinner would be better and he was right We made a little four pound turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, biscuits, and pecan pie. And the even better news? We still have leftovers! Yum!
I love it.
Finally, Christmas lights. I love it. Now that we can officially start celebrating Christmas because Thanksgiving is over, I did the first Christmassy thing of the year last night. A group of us went to “Celebration at the Oaks” which is in City Park. They had everything decorated for Christmas and a ton of lights. Even though it was a mild 70 degrees and did not feel like the Christmas I know and love, it did kick start my Christmas spirit.
I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.
I love it.
