Since we don't eat meat, we'll be having a sides-only Thanksgiving (which I always thought was the best part anyway, along with the desserts!). I did toy with the idea of making this amazing turkey-shaped veggie tray:

For sides, my husband requested Cool Ranch Doritos, I asked for stuffing, and J wants a grilled cheese sandwich. In other words, a spread just like the pilgrims envisioned.
Really, we'll just try not to get too stuffed so that we have plenty of energy left over for this:
BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING last year...fun was had by all, and it's a good thing we got a kid's cart because we definitely used it!
I think the trick for Black Friday shopping is to relax and have a good time watching the spectacle of it all. I never go with one item in mind that I just have to have. Instead, we try to see if we can get some good deals, and we always fuel up with to-go cups of coffee and frequent food breaks. My brother is the best Black Friday shopping partner. Josh is way too practical and not impulsive enough; he tries to say reasonable things like "maybe you don't need two external hard drives, and I doubt you will go back and watch all those episodes even though the whole season on DVD just costs $5." Booo, Josh.
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
