Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
I am guest posting over at Poodleism today, so make sure you check it out - Tips on being a better YOU! In other news, I get off of work at noon today (thank you Mr. CEO man!), I'm planning to force myself to hit the gym before I spend tomorrow consuming calories, and then I'm headed home with my brother when he gets off work!

Luckily for me, he lost a bet when my O-State Pokes crushed his K-State Cats a few weeks ago, and will be funding the gas and driving for our little roadie...

Can I get an amen?!

Anywho, I hope all of you traveling have a very safe trip wherever you are celebrating this year! I'm trying to focus on actually being actively Thankful this year, because I truly am so grateful for all the blessings God's given me!

I absolutely loved this Thanksgiving wish poem that I stumbled across last year, so I thought I'd share it again! Wishing you and yours a beautiful pound-free holiday! ;)


{ Happy Thanksgiving, Friends! Thankful for YOU! }


T’was the night of Thanksgiving,
But I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned,
The dark meat and white.
But I fought the temptation,
With all of my might.


Tossing and turning,
with anticipation.
The thought of a snack
Became infatuation.

So I raced to the kitchen,
Flung open the door,
And gazed at the fridge,
Full of goodies galore.


I gobbled up turkey,
And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots,
Beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling,
So plump and so round.
‘til all of a sudden,
I rose off the ground.


I crashed through the ceiling,
Floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding,
And a handful of pie.

But I managed to yell
As I soared past the trees
Happy eating to all,
Pass the cranberries, please!!

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize
And May your Thanksgiving dinner...


Stay off of your thighs!

Gobble, gobble gobble! :)
