The holiday is near.

I'm so happy that it is Wednesday!!! I hope work flies by today, because Steve and I have a lot to do to get ready for hosting Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.

Breakfast was a PBJ on an Ezekiel English Muffin with 1/2 peanut butter dreams and 1/2 cinnamon raisin peanut butter and strawberry preserves on both.

One of the secretaries had a huge tub of organic winnie the pooh animal crackers so I used the spoon she provided and took a few. The tub was from Costco.

At 12:30 I went to the gym with Steve and we did a 1 mile run to warm up and then we did 6 different upper body weight exercises (3 sets of each, 10-12 reps each set).
For lunch I had oatmeal with frozen berries and topped with Udi's granola. So yummy! I mixed in the Yogurt after I took the picture.

At 4pm I ate a kashi granola bar.

Steve and I car pool, but he is always done at work before me, so tonight he went to Home Depot and then picked us up dinner at Pita Pit. I ate my falafal pita in the car on the ride home.

A little later I had two pieces of chocolate:

Steve and I went and did a couple errands, and when we got home at at 9:30 I made a little snack of a few PB Puffins, trader joe's chocolate squares cereal, annie's chocolate chip bunnies, and a few pb and chocolate chips. This was maybe 1/2 cup total, but I didn't measure.

I can't wait to post pictures of the first Thanksgiving we are hosting. I got placemats and cloth napkins to set a nice table.

I'm all about great deals, so usually every Black Friday I'm waiting in line. Are you waiting in line? Amazon already has a Black Friday Sale online, so maybe this year I'll just shop online. Amazon has great deals on some books that I may try to take advantage of. But, I think Steve already has plans to wake me up super early on Friday, so I think I may have no choice.
Off to work!

I'm totally a bargain shopper! Every year my husband and I say we're not going to shop early on Black Friday...every year we end up doing it! We have a hard time resisting the deals!
