Life has gotten away from me over the last week. Once I finally stopped working last week, I got to enjoy the holiday and some other fun things. Since I never got a Thanksgiving post up, this is a recap of my weekend in terms of what I'm thankful for.
So I'm...

• Thankful I have a job I can do from anywhere. I learned that doesn't mean there is less work, but I was grateful I didn't have to drive anywhere on Wednesday.

• Thankful I got to be at home for Thanksgiving for the first time in a while, even if it meant hiding in the basement and working for three days.

• Thankful for my grandmother who blessed us with a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. She made all my favorite Thanksgiving dishes the way only she can. She doesn't even have a recipe for her stuffing, but it's the best I've ever had each time.

• Thankful I got to spend a day with my dad and see a live college football game in this stadium (even if our team forgot to play in the second half):

• Thankful I got to catch up with old friends. Two of my friends from high school met me for dinner at our favorite restaurant in high school, and the queso dip was still as I remembered. I also enjoyed catching up with high school friends at a wedding shower. It feels like just yesterday we were in eighth grade!

• Thankful I returned to a place I love. In college I always struggled with leaving my parents' after Thanksgiving, something about missing the Christmas preparation and my birthday at home was hard. But this year I was anxious to get back and celebrate a friend's birthday, and I had my own Christmas to put up. 

 Yes, we are wearing hats, and I ate at an Indian restaurant.
