Happy Thanksgiving!

This has turned out to be a good Thanksgiving this year! I slept in until 10 and it was wonderful! I had planned on making it to my parent’s house earlier in the day but ended up being in no rush whatsoever! We did make it by about noon and Annie just woke up not much earlier so it worked out just fine!

Jon and I decided to make this pineapple soufflé for Thanksgiving. We weren’t going to make anything since my parents were making plenty of food, but I saw that recipe the other day and thought it might be the same pineapple recipe a girl at work made last year at Thanksgiving that was delicious (and looked like vomit but who cares?!). It turned out really well and everybody really liked it!


I won’t show you all of our other boring Thanksgiving food because that’s boring. What Jon and I made is probably more exciting. Jon and I cuddled up on the couch together and took a nap. This is my off week on my birth control so I was probably definitely more emotional than usual. Luckily Jon’s a good sport and just ignored my bad mood. Mom finished up cooking and then it was dinner time! After we ate dinner, we were all lazing around and my mom forced us to get up and do something (oh the similarities between my mother and me). We ended up playing Spoons and Scrabble and some other game that wasn’t much fun. We were about to start an exciting game of the Dictionary game but Jon got called into work. It was already about 8:30, so after hanging out for a bit, I headed home too.

I’m feeling pretty full and disgusting of foods filled with butter and sugar! Tomorrow morning I’m hiking with my sisters! I’m glad, and I think I may end up going for a run tomorrow night. I may get together with a few high school friends in the evening but am not positive quite yet. I’m really enjoying having time to spend with Jon for once so I’m not really wanting to do a whole lot! And after being so busy with school and work, I kind of like having a few days where I don’t have to do anything. I think that makes me lame or antisocial or something. I’m not sure. And I don’t really care.

Anyway, I’m going to head off to bed. I’m tired and cold and need to wake up to clean up the house in the morning!

  1. I feel ya. Glad you had a relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving (and got to sleep!). You deserve more rest then anyone I know with your work schedule!

  2. Thank you for posting the link for the pinapple souffle! That looks delicious and my family loves pineapples so I may make it for Christmas.

    I work full-time and am taking a grad class, on the weekdays I’m super lazy and never want to hangout. The weekends I go out constantly and try to enjoy life while I’m young. However, when I’m taking a little vacation to see my boyfriend, I don’t want to do anything but cuddle with him on the couch. If we go out and venture into Colorado, after about two hours I always suggest going back to the hotel so I can be lazy with him and just enjoy his company. You just need your time lounging around with your SO, that is completely understandable. School can so exhausting.

    • School is definitely exhausting! I am so over it!!! The pineapple soufflé really was surprisingly good! Not the BEST leftover dessert I’ve ever had, but it I still enjoyed it for breakfast today! I also only added about 3/4 the butter and ended up pouring the rest out after it cooked, so I bet you could get away with way less than it calls for too!
