I am going to write a quick Thanksgiving wrap up , before I start what will probably be an extended series of post on Icelandic adventures and food.
We arrived home from our honeymoon early Wednesday morning to a very messy house and an empty fridge. With plans to have a simple Thanksgiving dinner with a friend at our house, getting to the grocery store was top priority. Then came doing a deep cleaning of the house. Fortunately, all got done.
My friend Katie and I did a Turkey Trot 5k at 7:30am on Thanksgiving morning. It was a cold run.
They handed out mini apple pies at the finish line. Even though Brian didn’t run the race with us, he thought that apple pie on Thanksgiving was an outrage. I think his exact words were, “Apple pie? This isn’t the 4th of July!”
After showering, face timing with my parents(it was my mom’s birthday) and warming up, we joined together once again to make a healthier version of a Thanksgiving feast. We had stuffing, Brussels sprouts, mashed cauliflower, and turkey breast with fresh cranberry-orange sauce.
After relaxing for a bit, we decided that we didn’t have anything else to do and decided to go check out the chaos of the Thanksgiving Day sales and help stimulate the economy a bit. Everywhere we went was very tame with minimal to no lines and no violence. Katie and I wore our Turkey Trot 5k fleece pajama pants all day, even out in public.
