A Little Turkey Told Me…

it's almost Thanksgiving! Actually, it was a 14 pound turkey on sale at Giant Eagle. Word to the grocery-savvy, three to four weeks BEFORE Thanksgiving is the day to buy the bird. Kroger and other major grocery chains usually have an awesome sale…ours was just $0.59 a pound! So our 14 pound turkey was about $8. For which I am very, very thankful. (Also very thankful for my smart husband who gently reminded me that a 25 pound turkey would probably not fit in our freezer!) 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

I can’t believe how quickly November has appeared. With Thanksgiving just weeks away, I have loads of grading and paper-writing to do but I’m excited all the same! What about you? Are you making your Thanksgiving plans yet?

love, elizabeth

My Thanksgiving is jam-packed with two trips and a bunch of chores. I started Christmas shopping yesterday. I cannot believe it is November already!

I can't believe it's so cheap! That's amazing! We have Thanksgiving with Craig's mom since we spend Christmas with my family, so thankfully I don't need to learn how to cook a turkey...yet...But I can't believe it's already November! CRAZINESS!

I LOVE thanksgiving! And we get a free turkey every year because Todd works in the pharmacy at a grocery store here. (o: And yes, I'm already making plans. I think I might host my family this year. Can't wait for sweet potatoes - they're my favorite!
