true story tuesday.

November 24, 2009 in food,fun,holidays,true story

I did a LOT of preparing for Thanksgiving this weekend. I cleaned, did laundry, and got some of my meals together and put them in the freezer. This is the most domestic I have ever been. EVER.

True story.

I met up with Emily on Sunday. Hanging out with her always cheers me up! There’s a reason she is my heterosexual life partner.

True story.

I was a bit emotional Sunday night/Monday morning. It bothered me. I recognized it and tried to move past it, but it wouldn’t budge.

True story.

I was cheered up when I arrived home and realized that I wouldn’t have to deal with another Monday for a week.

True story.

Well, that and the fact that I came home to 4 boxes of goodies on my front porch (which included a new coffee maker, perfume and GPS that I won at work).

True story.

I also recieved a very special package from Valerie at Next to Heaven. I love these beautiful leaf earrings from her etsy shop.

True story.

I also received a box from Angela at the Preppy Polka Dot! I’ve been drinking out of a water glass for far too long looking for a beautiful new wine glass!

True story.

There are few things better than free pie from a local bakery that my work hands out every year. This year I chose pumpking and it was delivered to me at work this morning.

True story.

I only have today and tomorrow to get through. Then BF will be here for our first Thanksgiving alone-no family, nothing-just me and him! I’m really excited.

True story.

Sounds like a pretty amazing delivery day! I'm also so thrilled to only have 2 more days of work this week. I do wish I got to spend Thanksgiving with my love, but that's what life threw at us this year so I'm trying to accept it.

You're going to have an amazing first Thanksgiving together. True story.

Enjoy your first Thanksgiving by yourselves! This year is Robert and my third Thanksgiving without family around. It's definitely different, but the quiet is nice.

BTW, I nominated you for a blog award last week–I'm horrible about posting to inform people. Check it out if you'd like 🙂
