Congratulations to those of you who got it, I was surprised by how many of you did!! Obviously, this one that I'm wearing in the pictures isn't fit to my size (hence, the clothespins), but trust me, it's a beautiful dress in person!

And, if any of you were wondering, my fiance Kris does not read my blog. He knows that I have it (and he thinks its great!) but since he's with me for the majority of my meals, he doesn't read it. And I told him that I posted a picture of my dress on here, so he knows to stay away!

Ok, on to my eats!

A peanut butter cookie Luna Bar. I dilly-dallied all morning so breakfast had to be something quick!

A turkey, hummus, sprouts and cheese sammie! Simple, but wonderful! I also had an apple and some carrot sticks.

A HUUUUUUUUGE greek chicken salad! Spinach, leftover chicken, tomatoes, onions, feta cheese and greek dressing. SO good. I also had a glass of shiraz.

Alright... not sure what I'm doing for Thanksgiving Eve. A friend of mine is trying to convince me to go to the VFW in my hometown (about 20 minutes away from here) for a drink. I'm trying to convince another friend to come with me, since I don't want to go alone! Haha, I am a baby! We'll see what happens.

Last but not least, I want to send a BIG THANK YOU to my awesome/wonderful/beautiful friend and bridesmaid, Britt, for this very thoughtful Wedding Survival Kit she gave me the other day.

It included: Mini chocolate candy bars, starbursts, a massage thingamabobber, FOUR LARABARS!!, two aromatheraphy bath salts, a bunch of relaxation masks, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Weddings (I've already read half of it, LOVE IT!), a stress ball, and, of course, WINE. :-) LOVE YOU BRITT!

I am soooooooooo excited for Thanksgiving tomorrow. For the past two years, Kris and I have traveled to Chicago for his family's Thanksgiving. This year, we opted out and are spending it with my family! Tomorrow is hosted by my paternal grandmother, and we get another Thanksgiving on Saturday, hosted by my mom! TWO Thanksgiving. Awesome. Where are all of you going??!
