Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

The hubs is enjoying the fact that he can lay in bed and watch television, while I clean. He is getting better so I will baby him for one and a half more days and then that's it! Hehe.

We are having both our families over to our house for Thanksgiving. I don't know what we were thinking. It is going to be crazy and our first time hosting Thanksgiving! 17 people in our small bungalow, oh boy! Let's hope we can seat everyone. I don't think anyone really wants to eat turkey standing up.

I am excited regardless. It is going to be nice to have my family and my in laws together, under one roof.

We have two turkeys in the fridge that my mom insisted had to be seasoned tonight. Unfortunately, they are still frozen so that isn't going to work. I didn't tell her because she would say I didn't listen, haha. I will do it tomorrow and pray she doesn't notice when she gets here.

I'm also hoping that my turkey(s) will end up looking like the golden, brown, delicious picture below, because if they don't I won't be able to share pictures. And you all know just how much I love to share pictures. Good thing, I have two chances to make it right, hehe.

Any who, I am going to be a busy bee (as I am sure everyone else will be) for the next few days so I just want to wish everyone a fantastic Thanksgiving Day.

Good luck hosting the holiday! I have a feeling we will be doing the same next year because of the baby, so I might be asking you for advice on how to handle hosting! :)

Good luck with everything. I'm sure you will do well. That is big task that I hope I will never have to take on. I know it's horrible but it's too much work. I'd have to hire help. LOL.

You are one brave lady! Two turkeys?! Wow... I'm terrified to cook one for our Christmas dinner with friends in two weeks!!

Thank you and you as well. I hope it all comes together nicely. 17 people is a task but I'm sure you'll have good help.

By the way, can you give a post about your transition? Reasons etc? I'm curious
