My Second Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I Love About Thanksgiving

  1. Stuffing
  2. Seeing family
  3. Waking up to the smell of the turkey (can't do that anymore)
  4. Setting the table for dinner
  5. Getting the day off of work
  6. The midwestern autumn weather
  7. The St. Louis Parade
  8. The Macy's Parade
  9. Thanksgiving TV
  10. Broccoli & cauliflower covered in Velveeta
  11. Aaaaaaaple Pie!!!!
  12. Sitting around the kitchen table chatting with family
  13. Being reminded of all the things I have in which to be thankful

Okay, so I was feeling anxious tonight and decided to do two TTs.

Thirteen Things For Which I'm Thankful
  1. God
  2. My health
  3. My wonderful and supportive family
  4. My wonderful boyfriend, J
  5. Our nice, little home
  6. A job that I am able to go to everyday
  7. My beautiful, sweet, dog, Beanie
  8. The financial means to live well
  9. I was raised in a nice home and nice community
  10. I have a computer to blog on everyday, several times a day
  11. The blessing of a college education
  12. Having the ability to learn about and feel true love
  13. Every experience in my life (regardless of how horrible)that made me the person I am today

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Someday I want to go to NY and see the Macy Parade in person.

Lisa said...

MMMMM! I think I like Thanksgiving just for the snarfage! Stuffing and mashed potatoes - oh yes, I loves me some of that! :)

Thanks for stopping Snarkypants. Have a lovely Thanksgiving day!

Cheryl said...

I am so looking forward to pie. I can hardly stand it anymore.

Mikala said...

Me too Maggie - I only get to watch it on TV. But, that's always good too.

Oh, I forgot all about mashed potatoes - YUMMEH!

I know, pie has been on my mind for a few days now!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Two TTs??? Wow. You're awesome.

Have a great day! Too bad you can't wake up to the smell of turkey cooking anymore. Sometimes, the things we have to give up aren't worth the price of being an adult, huh? *sigh*

I love the Macy's parade myself. A sinus rinse, to answer your question on my blog, is a saline rinse. You put it in a bottle that comes with it and squirt it up one side of your nose and it comes out the other. Sounds really gross but it works GREAT.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Mikala said...

Susan, you are so right. When you think of owning your own home, you don't think of the little things that you will miss at your parents'.

Tammy said...

Great TT's!! Mine is up too all about Thanksgiving!

Tammy said...

Ok I just read you 9/11 thing and that is freaky and then I did the thing in microsoft works and my jaw hit the floor!! That is just wild!

Janet said...

Two wonderful lists for the price of one! I'm thankful :-)

Le laquet said...

And both of your lists are fab ... all this thanksgiving talk about food is making me hungry!!

Eric said...

You over achiever you! :) I am jealous of the weather you get this time of year. I grew up and still live in So. California but I spent my college and grad school years in South Dakota and Denver and fell in love with the weather.

I have posted my first Thursday Thirteen over at Renaissance Blogger.

scribbit said...

Apple pie, I'm with you. Got one baking now.

MommyBa said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your familY!

Mikala said...

Apple pie is my friend!

Tink said...

Wow, two TT's!!! I love them both. I am so waiting for the stuffing. I think that's the best part. I would love to take the kids to see the Macy's parade.

Happy TT!!!

What a great list! I was on my out to the Macy's parade this morning, but it is pouring rain here. I decided to watch it from home instead.

Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy TT!

Lisa said...

Now my mouth is watering.... Mmmmm

Caylynn said...

Great lists! :) Wonderful things about Thanksgiving (although I'll pass on the broccoli and cauliflower) and great things to be thankful for. :)

Although I celebrated Thanksgiving last month (Canadian Thanksgiving is in October) I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving. :)

Sweet Kitty said...

Very nice lists!
Have a save and happy Thanksgiving!
Happy TT from Germany,

Happy TT!

Domestic Goddess said...

Amanda said...

Two wonderful lists! All this talk about Thanksgiving day celebrations & cooking is making me want to hop on a plane & fly on over - save some pie for me!! ;)

Sparky said...

Gee, another one with family football games, I missing something I think.

Kiyotoe said...

Your second list hit a lot closer to home than the first....except for the football, that's always a priority.

Mikala said...

There's always pie left!

Family football games are fun!
