Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Dinner

Two things that made my day…

1. I was getting lunch at McDonald’s and as I was leaving a boy (maybe 12?) was standing near the door and went out and opened it for me. It makes me happy that there are some kids with great manners left in the world.

2. I saw a city bus with Christmas lights on it! Seriously the whole top was lined with those icicle lights and they were lit up! It was awesome.

And one thing that could…

1. Walking back to the office I saw a delivery man walking in to another elevator with a huge bouquet of red long stem roses. My birthday is in a month and a half… Just saying. 🙂

So today was Thanksgiving Day Two and, of course, Thanksgiving dinner number two. My sister and her boyfriend and my other sister and my aunt came and we ate lots of food.

I still was stuffed from yesterday’s Clubhouse Thanksgiving buffet. I now can’t really move.

Picture of my Thanksgiving dinner because I know you want to see:

Thanksgiving dinner of Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, and a Roll
Thanksgiving Dinner of turkey (whole drumstick to myself), Stuffing (with mushrooms and cherries), Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Bread Roll

I didn’t take a picture of the cheesecake. We also had the wine I brought back from Paris and some chocolate wine too.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    i think i have an apartment at clark and diversey.
    its not big, and its not cheap, but for the area, it isn’t hideously expensive either. joe meier confirmed my theory.
