I can't believe Thanksgiving is already here again. This will be my second Thanksgiving spent with Beth and her family. And although it's not the same as having Thanksgiving with my family, it's pretty darn close and the only other place I'd rather be. This year, Beth, Janet(Beth's sister) and I are running in a 5 mile race in The Woodlands called Run Thru the Woods on Thanksgiving morning. It should be a lot of fun and it'll be a good reason to get up and get some exercise before we stuff our faces later in the day. Beth's family also has the tradition of going out the day after Thanksgiving and getting their Christmas tree. Since we always had a fake tree growing up, this was a new experience for me last year. It's kind of cool how they just hand you a saw and you walk around until you find "the pefect tree." Then you just cut it down and they load it up for you. Beth and I have talked about what kind of tree we're going to have once we get married. We're still undecided. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I made a list.

What I like about Thanksgiving:

  • Turkey

  • Mashed Potatoes

  • Football

  • Cold Weather(although not in Houston)

  • Four days off from work

  • Spending time with people you care about
