So like many of you, I am currently baking and meal prepping for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving dinner. This year, it will be a quiet Thanksgiving Day at home with my hubby and son. Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love spending the holidays with extended family and friends, and to be honest would love to be doing so tomorrow. Although plans don’t always work out the way you want them to, they can easily work for the best. I shall enjoy spending quality time with my two guys.
So, on to the meal prep. What are you all having this year? Anything out of the norm? I would love to hear in the comments your meal plans and even some great recipe links. I’m always looking for new ones. We will be having the typical Thanksgiving meal of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, mac and cheese (a must for my son), green beans, sweet potato casserole (which I am attempting for the first time for my hubby), and cranberries in a can. Yes, the can kind. Not my first choice by any means, but that is what my husband requested. LOL.
Now after the Thanksgiving meal, we will probably play a game or two, watch a hallmark movie (of course!), and just chill. Rest and relaxation is the key here .
Then comes Black Friday. I tend not to go to any store not this day. Why? Well, experience tells me the crazies are out! LOL. I have had some bad experiences in the past, one of them being a person grabbing items out of my cart and walking away. No, I didn’t run after them. It just wasn’t worth the fight in my opinion. So, with that in mind, I tend to avoid Black Friday shopping in person and tend to go online for some great deals.
I thought I would share a few of those great deals with you. Books! Books! Books! I love books! Here are two great deals on some educational and fun books for your children to read.
The Tuttle Twins Books by Conner Boyack –These books are quite enjoyable to read. They teach children the principles of freedom and liberty that we as US citizens have in a way that is relatable to children. I highly recommend these books. There is a special Black Friday deal special to check out on their site. Go to this link to find these deals. https://tuttletwins.com/blackfriday/
The By the Way Series Books by Joy Budensiek –I absolutely love these books as does my son. These are educational and fun to read! They are filled with state facts, historical facts, science, biblical principles and verses, and adventure all wrapped up with colorful photos and clip art to add to one’s enjoyment. Joy has given us a wonderful deal on these books for Christmas. Purchase 3 books for $40 and FREE shipping! I might add that I enjoy reading them as well.
