Thanksgiving Tag

Since today falls right before Thanksgiving, I decided to partake in this fun tag that I saw on Jenn & Biana's blogs! 

Favorite part of the Thanksgiving Day meal?
I'm definitely more a fan of all the sides. I usually tend to fill up on appetizers and sides that by the time I get to the turkey, I don't have any room for that. Desserts are also the best, always room for dessert!

Favorite side(s)?
Totally the easiest question ever, MASHED POTATOES!!! Ask anyone that knows me and I could eat those for days!

Have you hosted before?
Nope, since this is our first Thanksgiving as a married couple and we don't have our own place, it doesn't make sense logistically to host it, but I hope that one day we can.

Favorite decor for Thanksgiving?
Our family doesn't really go all out in the sense of decorations, mostly because then there wouldn't be room for all the yummy food. But I'm a big fan of harvest bouquets and mini pumpkins. I'm hoping one year when we host, I'll go full our and decorate!

Tree up before or after Thanksgiving (if you celebrate)?
Usually after, but that's just lack of time. If I could I would totally put it up beforehand. Hubby said that we can put up all the decorations December 1st and later, but I've snuck in small decor items like my nutcracker.

Smooth or chunky cranberry sauce?
Not the biggest fan of cranberry sauce, but I would prefer it smooth.

Pumpkin pie or another?
I usually make a pumpkin cheesecake pie, but this year I'm doing something a little different. I'm a fan of any pie really. Apple, sweet potato, pumpkin, etc!

Biggest thing you're thankful for this year?
Definitely getting married and how I was able to see so much of my family this year. It's definitely tough not being able to spend the holidays with my family at home, but I'm excited and thankful for new traditions. I'm also thankful for my family, health, and new job; among many other things!


I hope y'all have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebrating with your loved ones and eating up a storm. Do me a favor and just wait until Friday early morning to head to the stores because nobody wants a Thanksgiving Day shopper!

  4. There's always room for dessert, no matter what! Your pumpkin cheesecake sounds so good, and I'm with you on loving some apple pie too! I'm glad that you're still sneaking in some Christmas decorations, even if A won't let you go all out until December 1st!
