Thankful for Overindulgance

*groaaaaaaaan* Too much food. Must fight through the tryptophan and write…

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’m going to step away from talking about my latest crochet adventures and give you a good old fashioned Thanksgiving post that will probably have the same effect as tryptophan and put you to sleep, but whatever! I’m the crochet hooker, so listen up.. Turkey day is one of my favorite times of the year mainly because I get to gorge myself without regrets, except for that half hour after eating when I can’t move for fear of vomitting. Besides eating my favorite yummy foods, I get to recount the things in life which I am most thankful for. First off, I’m thankful for colorful yarn that eventually gets turned into fun things, and all of the helpful tutorials on youtube that teach me all of my crochet needs. I’m thankful that Black Friday commercials will finally come to an end.. until next year. I’m thankful for social media and the technology that allows me to interact with other skillful crafters as well as share my creations and inspire others. Just tonight I was told that I have inspired a family friend to pick up the crochet hook again and start playing around with it more, yay!! That’s exactly what I’m trying to do here, so I’m glad I’m finally sparking inspiration in others =) Finally, and this may sound cliché, but I’m most thankful for all of the wonderful friends and family in my life that make every day worth living. I truly am blessed to be surrounded by such a loving family and amazing friends. My family is very close and we already spend lots of time together, but it just feels extra special during the holidays because it’s just another reason to tell everyone that I love them.

I’m one of those people that needs to document every minute of my life because I have this fear that I’m going to one day lose my mind, so I took some snapshots of my Turkey Day…

Started the morning with a biscuits and gravy breakfast and cup of coffee

Threw on my apron and tried helping out in the kitchen

Enjoyed a hot cup ‘o Saffron tea while waiting to munch on some grindage

The turkey! Cooked to perfection as always by my momma

The feast, complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, corn bread casserole, green bean casserole, biscuits, cranberries, stuffing, and gravy.. It’s safe to say there was enough food for at least five other people to have eaten with us. Helloooooo, leftovers!

Let’s hear it for over-indulgence.

And what Thanksgiving would be complete without a slice of pumpkin pie…?

Chalk up another success for the day of thanks. I feel like there was so much more I wanted to talk about, but the turkey has taken over my brain functions. What are YOU thankful for??
