Happy day after Thanksgiving!

I feel like the holiday’s come and go just a bit too quickly.

This is why I don’t get mad when I already see Christmas decorations because I really feel like we should celebrate the holiday’s for as long as possible.

Thanksgiving was seriously here and gone in a blink of the eye this year, but it didn’t help that I had to work the day before and after so I literally drove up to Matt’s parents, ate our Thanksgiving meal, and then shortly after had to pack up and head home so I could work the next day.

But even though the visit was short, it does not mean it wasn’t a good one. Because any time with family is a good time.

So here is my re-cap of my very quick Thanksgiving.

The day started off with a quick breakfast at home.

I felt like having a little fun with some left overs we had to make Matt a… balanced breakfast.

Cute huh? Breakfast with a smile!

I know I know not the most healthy breakfast, but the Chobani and banana balance it out right?

And that’s what life is all about. Balance.  And come on, who doesn’t love doughnuts?

Ok. I actually legit really do not care for doughnuts, so instead I had a bagel.

A P28 bagel to be exact, that I am so happy to have back in my life.

I topped it with some chocolate banana protein fluff and also had a banana on the side.

Didn’t want to fill up too much because I knew I had a lot of delicious food that I would be eating soon.

But before heading out Matt and I took a little “family” photo to send to all our friends and family we couldn’t be with.

We then hit the road and headed up north!

Shortly after arriving at Matt’s parents, the wine was opened and we started cooking.

Then it was time to feast!

We always make a pretty traditional Thanksgiving meal. Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, veggies and honestly we don’t get fancy with the home made stuff, which is really just the way I like it. I’m talking Stove Top stuffing, Bob Evans mashed potatoes, frozen veggies… and I know you’re thinking “oh my gosh home made is so much better and healthier”. Maybe. But this is our tradition. And I love it.

Soon after dinner it was time for dessert. The best part.

Matt’s mom always makes pumpkin and apple pie and usually I don’t worry about which I choose because I usually do pumpkin pie after dinner and have the apple pie for breakfast the next day (I mean who doesn’t have pie for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving), but since I wasn’t staying the night this year I did what any normal person would do. I had both. No shame.

Very shortly after dessert I had to hit the road. Matt decided to stay the night since he has Friday off work and his parents also needed some help with some things around the house.  The only real thing I’m jealous of is I can’t do any Black Friday shopping, even if we didn’t go to stores, I can’t even do much online shopping due to working all day. But thankfully stores and websites offer deals multiple days, hopefully I can do some shopping this weekend.

Well loves I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and it was full of precious family time, love and delicious food.

I know mine was.
