It seems like November has flown by! I can't believe that Thanksgiving is only a few days away! Dearest and I are hosting a massive Christmas dinner (okay, it's technically a post-Christmas dinner) for 14 people! On the menu- turkey, stuffing, my aunt's candies yams (oh so tasty), ham, mashed potatoes, and much more. I've never made a turkey before, so we're having a dry run to see how it turns out... So far the stuffing is amazing!!! And that was just the leftover part that didn't fit into the turkey. I told Dearest that after discovering this wonderful stuffing, I'll probably make it once a month and stuff a chicken or something. :)
I'm so excited for Christmas! I really want to start putting decorations up, but Dearest says we have to wait til after Thanksgiving. This is the first year we're able to put up lights on the house, since we've always lived in an apartment building. You can bet that our house will be the brightest on the block. Lol. I get a bit carried away with holiday decor. :)
New Year's is sure to be fun, too. We're going to Disneyland for a few days, including New Year's Eve, with my family. I've never been during the holidays and I've heard it's so magical and special. I'm super excited! Plus it means I'll be able to buy all those mickey antenna balls I've seen this year. Hehe.
Dearest and I began our marathon training, but about a week into it, we both got sick. It's been two weeks and we both still have a cough. There were times during the massive headaches of the cold that I had the strong urge to knock myself out with a bat so I could get some sleep. Thankfully we're both well onto the road to recovery. Training starts again tomorrow!
I hope all of you are doing well! I can't wait to see my friends during the holidays!
