Awards and Getting ready for Thanksgiving!

My sweet friend Kat from Just a Beachkat has given me these wonderful awards. I think Kat may have been one of the first people to comment on my blog when I started it last year. Thanks so much Kat for these great awards and I am thankful for all of my blog friends and their friendship and encouragement. I am passing on all of these awards to all of you because I am so thankful to have you all in my life.
So is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? I went to the grocery yesterday after sitting in the dentist office for a couple of hours getting a new crown fitted. Before I talk about Thanksgiving though, I just want to know why crowns cost so much? I guess a new crown is my Christmas present this year. LOL So after the dentist I met my daughter Melissa and the two girls and we went to the grocery store with the whole left side of my mouth looking like I had some kind of accident, I was numb all the way up to the top of my cheekbone for hours! We got the turkey, dressing, all the ingredients for the green bean casserole and we are going to try the Pioneer Woman's pecan pie that you can get here. First time in trying to make a pecan pie so I'll let you know how that turns out. My Dad is taking us out to eat on Thanksgiving day but on Friday all the kids are coming to our house for Thanksgiving dinner. I am behind in my blog visiting because of the holiday and being so busy, which I'm sure is the same for everyone but I am trying to visit and wish everyone a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I also just couldn't wait to decorate my blog for the holidays so it is now all nice and festive for Christmas! Happy Tuesday!
