LOCATION: The Broadmoor
Can you believe this week is Thanksgiving? I feel like it has totally snuck up on me! In an attempt to stay on top of work, I have definitely missed staying on top of my personal life! hahah. But I am writing down the ingredients for the four dishes I am bringing to Thanksgiving dinner so I can go shopping on Tuesday and I’m feeling better about it.
Growing up, we would watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade every year. My dad would record both channels so that we could watch them both and he would start over at the beginning when we all woke up late in high school. It’s one of my favorite memories & traditions. Ever since I’ve been married, I’ve tried to create our own traditions and see how my old ones can fit into this new life. These days, I turn on the parade when I wake up and I bake in the kitchen while I watch it (my favorite part is the musicals!!) It has become a special time and tradition even though all my siblings are not sitting on the couch next to me. All that to say, I plan on watching the parade while I bake on Thursday and I am pumped about it!
Outfit wise, I think it is fun to dress up for the holidays but in a comfortable way. I mean, you are eating and hanging out, maybe going on a walk or throwing the football. It is an all day affair so comfort is important still. The weather & temperatures also always fluctuate. The moment the sun goes down (which is like 3:30 these days!) the temp drops at least 10 degrees. But you also have to keep in mind that you are gathering in a home with a bunch of people and the oven has been on all day. Every time I wear a turtleneck I regret it because I get SO HOT inside! That is what I love about this quarter-sleeve sweater! It is light weight and you can push up the sleeves if you get hot!
What are your Thanksgiving traditions? Do you dress up for dinner? Any other parade watchers out there?! Let me know in the comments!!
