Are you ready?

For Thanksgiving, that is?
Luckily, hubby does most of the grocery shopping and is responsible for the well-being of the bird when it goes into the oven on Thursday morning.
I am responsible for readying the house and making the mashed potatoes and veggies at that last mad hour before the meal is served.

I am seriously dreaming about my mom's homemade pumpkin pie. 
Her apple pie is just as divine.

I'm off to boot camp in a few hours to try to work some sort of calorie deficit for the week so that I can eat all of that holiday goodness on Thursday.

I hope I am not alone on that thought? 

So I meant to post a few pictures from our 4-day trip to North Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago. It was such a relaxing weekend! You can't go wrong with watching movies, working on a 750-piece puzzle and playing lots of card games. 

We drove to Virginia City, Nevada on Veteran's Day to watch the parade. It was freezing but we enjoyed the gold mine tour and the cute little shops. 

I found a few quaint antique shops {yay!} and found a few goodies to take home.

Darren was thrilled to take a picture of a real cowboy.

If anyone has any favorite side dishes they like to serve at Thanksgiving I'm open for suggestions and ideas!
