Counting my blessings

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  I hope you can slow down a little today and take some time to count the many blessings in your life.  Sometimes in the daily whirlwind of life, we get stuck on some of the ugly stuff.  Today we get to focus on the positive and leave that stuff behind!  

This year we are heading to my in-laws for dinner.  I’m making the Pioneer Women’s Cornbread Dressing with Sausage and Apples.  It’s the recipe she used when she was on Throwdown last week with Bobby Flay.  I can’t wait to see how it turns out.  After dinner, we’re off to my side of the family at my brother’s place. 

This evening it’s time to plan my strategy for Black Friday shopping.  Yes, I’m one of those crazy people who get up before the sun to stand in line at Kohl’s and Target.  It’s a holiday tradition and it wouldn’t seem like the start of the Christmas season without it! 

Speaking of blessings, here’s one of mine.  We made pumpkin bars on Monday night and I brought them into the office this week.  She LOVES to help me bake and I spent many years dreaming of a baking assistant!  ;)
