What I'm Loving Wedsnesday: Thanksgiving Edition!

Hi lovelies! I decided for WILW this week I am going to relate most things that *I'm loving* to this wonderful holiday! There are some other randoms too :) 

I'm loving...that thanksgiving is tomorrow! Food is on my mind! I can already taste all the calories I am about to consume. I can't wait to be with all my family this year since last year was spent with Billy's side of the family. I will miss them though!

I'm loving...that I am in charge of baking the graham cracker roll for our family. This recipe has been passed down from my great grandma and I hope I don't disappoint everyone seeings how I have never made this in my life. Good luck to me..or maybe the joke will be on me?!

I'm loving...that this is our first thanksgiving as Mr. & Mrs! Cheers to being a married couple!  

I'm loving...me and Billy's "special" plans for the day after thanksgiving ~ the one and only BLACK FRIDAY. I'm not going to lie, as much as I love shopping...I cannot stand crowds, long lines filled with people who are 97.5% of the time irritable and lacking sleep, and feeling RUSHED to find that perfect gift that is on sale. I'd rather pay the extra money just to skip the lines, crowded parking lots, traffic, etc. That being said, Billy and I ARE going to take a risk and head out early but just for one thing. We want a nice flatscreen TV (and wall mount) for our bedroom. The sales on HDTV's are too good to pass up. I hope this won't be too difficult since we already did our research and know what we want ::crossing fingers:: I may look for a laptop as well but if and only if it's not a madhouse. Our "special" plans after are this: putting up our christmas lights outside, christmas decorations inside, and our TREE! So fun!

I'm loving...sweet potato casserole, stuffing, cheesy potatoes, pecan pie...etc. sooo not healthy, but a girl deserves a break during the holidays! Who's with me?! did I mention food is on my mind?...

I'm loving...our tradition that every year when we put up our christmas tree (which we will do this Friday!) we have my mom's Lasagna recipe for dinner. It means a lot to me to bake something that she loved and Billy love love love loves it! Maybe we will watch Elf or Home Alone too (my faves) :)

I'm loving...that it's BEAT MICHIGAN WEEK! What does this mean you ask? It means that Ohio State plays Michigan this Saturday for our last season game. It is our biggest rivalry and is often known as "The Game"!! Here in Ohio the whole week is dedicated to "hating" on Michigan. It is tradition that the students at Ohio State jump in a freezing, cold lake at night to celebrate and thousands of them do it! With that being said, it is always the best game to tailgate and fans look forward to this game every year.

I'm loving...the smell of Yankee Candles! always the best to get you in the holiday spirit!

I'm loving...it's my Dad's birthday Saturday. I don't know what I would do without him.

I'm loving...waking up everyday to my puppy snuggled up in between us under the covers. He loves to be warm and has to be laying literally right on top of us or on my pillow. melts my heart.

I'm loving...that I have so many things to be thankful for! Life is good! :)

Link up with Jamie and tell me what you are loving on this special holiday week!!

A special *happy birthday* this week to Billy's brother Kevin, one of my best guy friends Jim, and the best DAD there is! Love you all!
