Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
From me to you, I hope it is a great day. And if you are working, thank you. I appreciate it.
I’d love to hear how you celebrate Thanksgiving! Each year varies, but I usually spend the afternoon with my family and then depending how it goes, the evening with my husband’s family.
When it comes to my favorite foods, I love the carbs and starchy stuff. Corn casserole, mac n’ cheese, egg noodles and rolls. I also make mashed cauliflower and am probably the only one that eats it, but that’s okay. (It’s delicious… here’s the recipe if you want to give it a try sometime.)
Black Friday Shopping
I hope you have a great holiday and good luck it you’re Black Friday shopping tonight or tomorrow morning! I enjoy shopping on Monday, in bed. Last year I did all my Christmas shopping in about 30 minutes before I went to bed. I plan on doing the same this year.
Circle of Lights
Looking for something to do tomorrow night after your Black Friday shopping? Go to the Circle of Lights Tree Lighting! This is a super fun event for everyone. Make your life easy and arrive early. The tree lighting is one of the events where parking and traffic gets crazy.
Festivities start around 6 p.m., so try arriving by at least 5 p.m. or earlier so you can easily park and get in a great spot.
Once the lighting is over, parking is also pretty nuts. Walk around, take pictures or go have dinner in the area. It will make your trip home much easier if you leave the area after traffic has slowed down. The intense rush lasts about an hour…so why not extend your visit downtown and enjoy the amenities rather than sit in your car cursing at traffic. There are tons of dining options both family friendly or if you’re looking for a drink.
