Christmas is almost here! I found this nifty little website that’s dedicated to telling us how long it is until Christmas. Right now it’s 31 days, 23 hours, and 29 minutes, give or take a few seconds. So exciting!
Since I last updated my blog, I’ve become quite the domestic housewife-in-training. I’ve cooked two apple pies in two days, and fed my guy friends a lot of good food. I’ve found that I love baking. And I love it more when I get to practice baking things for my friends. The friends I feed the most are, of course, the guys. The apartment building where I live houses a lot of my friends, and those who don’t live in this building live right down the street from me, so I have a lot of taste-testers. They love it, though… who would pass up free food? And, maybe I’m making this up, but I’m pretty sure they love having people (girls) cook for them while they watch football or Futurama.
OK, so a break from Christmas now: Thanksgiving is in a few days!
This Thanksgiving, we’re spending it with my Nana and Pop (my mom’s parents), who happen to live five minutes from our house, and my Aunt Cathleen, Uncle Tom, and cousins Caitlin and Sarah. I love them! I’m sure I mentioned this in a previous post, but I’m really excited to see them! It’s been too long.
I’ve also decided that this Thanksgiving will be the one when I start really helping my mom, nana, and aunt in the kitchen with the cooking. I figure that I’m the oldest child in my family, and the oldest grandchild on my mom’s side, so I have to step up. I’m really excited. I’m going to make apple pie (which I have now perfected!), and help with whatever else needs to be done. And after that, I’ll have a glass of wine with the women (Mom, Nana, and Aunt Cathleen), because I’m 21 now. :]
My mom’s thinking about taking me to an outlet store for their Black Friday sale at midnight after Thanksgiving dinner. I’m not normally a Black Friday Shopper, but I figure that I’ll give it a try.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have to go to sleep because I’m driving to the airport in the morning with a friend. Peace and Blessings! <3
