This past Thanksgiving was a very food filled one! I had three different parties to go to!
But before all those parties, I went to the gym and did cardio for thirty minutes!
The first party was at my boyfriends moms house for lunch. She stayed away from the traditional turkey, mashed potatoes, etc and instead made dry mein, korean pancake, hamburger steak, rice, egg rolls, and trifle for dessert. It was DELICIOUS! I was so stuffed by the end of lunch I already knew I wasn't going to eat too much throughout the rest of the day. One party down, two more to go.
The next party was at my aunty's house, which we go to every year ever since I was a baby. Now all my cousins that are close in age with me have their own kids running around the house. It's just so crazy to see how fast time flys!
My aunty's house always has the best food. There was turkey, mashed potatoes, salmon, gandule rice, korean fried rice, deviled eggs, hot dogs, spring rolls, too much to mention! Don't even get me started on the dessert table. Since I was still stuffed from lunch, I nibbled at some food while making sure my niece behaved. She didn't want to sit and eat, kept coloring on other people's drawings, going behind the couch and grabbed pictures off the shelves. Oh man was she a handful! She even started slapping an aunt that you don't mess with AT ALL. My aunt also started slapping Gianna back which was hilarious, but I also stopped Gianna because I know this aunt will spank her haha.
The last and final party was my mom's house. I was so full at this point that I didn't eat and just chilled with everyone there. My niece loved her little cousins and wanted to stay by them every second, it was so cute!
After this, my boyfriend and I went black Friday shopping. I didn't buy anything, but my boyfriend got some deals on new work boots and new work socks (5 pairs for $4!). You know you're getting old when you buy things you need for work or for the house rather than clothes and toys.
Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving with loved ones! Now it's time to get rid of this turkey weight!
