Thanksgiving 2017

Mint Premium Foods
Westchester, NY

Reading Terminal 
Philly, PA

Thanksgiving was great this year. Since my family is located everywhere we rotate where we spend Thanksgiving. Last year I flew home to Utah and this year my family came to the East coast. Instead of dinner in the city, my family rented an Airbnb in Harmony, Pennsylvania. It was nice, and very homey! The way Thanksgiving should be spent. We cooked dinner and had a post Christmas movie marathon while everyone was in a food coma. 

I truly love the holidays SO much! From October-December I swear I am the best version of myself haha and I am always happy because there is constantly something to look forward to. I love festive events and I also love long vacations from work. 

Aside from Thanksgiving day, the whole weekend was just a lot of fun. On black Friday we did some sub for Santa shopping and we even had a chance to go into Philly to shop some more and eat the best Philly Cheese-Steakes. I love spending time in Philly. The city is small but it just a nice place to hang around in. I have a lot of fond memories there! In general, I genuinely just love the East Coast.

On Saturday night we drove up to Westchester (we really hopped around this break) and ate at an awesome gourmet market called Mint. We indulged in gourmet cheese and bread, yum yum and I throughly enjoyed my lobster linguini (major seafood fan btw). My family cracks me up! All in different ways. My sister Stacey is always doing funny things to make me laugh, Jennifer has hilarious commentary and my dad well....he doesn't realize that as a person he does the funniest things. 

Family is the greatest and I can't wait to see mine again for Christmas!!! WAHOO!

The Best

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

So Monday— Friday I am just trying to keep my eye on the prize, which is the weekend. Some weeks of course are more forgiving than others, but I think anyone who has a full work week will admit that the weekend is where it is at. It's total FREEDOM!!! :) 

I LOVE when I get home from work— after the gym, after I have cooked dinner, after I have showered and I crawl into bed with my peppermint tea in my hand, my fuzzy socks on and I am just like, "THIS IS THE BEST." 

Being at home in my bed watching some Netflix and winding down with a candle lit in my room is when I feel at totally peace, which is not a feeling one usually experiences in NYC. 

Lately I have been watching Stranger Things (I know so has everyone else, nothing new) but I mean there is a reason why everyone loves it so much. I love the cast of characters, they are so funny and cute and there is just something very likable about the show. It makes me laugh, it puts me on the edge of my seat and it is a feel good show that I look forward to watching every night. I just binged both seasons and I am so sad it is already over!!

Onto the next one— suggestions welcome :)
