Exciting post title, right?! Yeah, I know! But I am obviously home right now and I am very happy :)
Last night I had some of Amy's Chunky Vegetable Organic Soup. I picked this up yesterday afternoon when I went to the grocery store to pick up a few staples, but I am going on a bigger grocery shop for Thanksgiving with mom today!This is the first time I have had soup in a very long time! I was very cold so I was in the mood for something warm. Overall I thought this soup was okay, nothing special. The soup had a bunch of veggies including tomatoes, spinach, carrots, green beans, corn, peas, onions, baby lima beans, and celery.
Along with the soup I had Arnold's Whole Wheat Sandwich thins with a glass of milk.
Last night I went to the mall to buy a new outfit for Thanksgiving even though I have so much clothes in my closet it is unreal. I just always seem to buy new outfits for the holidays! I bought this wicked cute black and grey striped sweater dress from Express which I am going to wear with black leggings and my black Uggs. It is such a cute outfit and I am very excited to wear it tomorrow!
Does anyone else buy new outfits just for the Holidays?
I am happy to say I got a great nights sleep in my big comfy bed at home! I don't think I woke up once, I slept for a solid 9 1/2 hours. 'Twas great!
Breakfast this morning was a yogurt mess with a few changes ;) I had Stonyfield Plain Oikos yogurt, Barbara's Original PUFFINS, sliced ripe banana, with some Crazy Richard's Creamy peanut butter on top with a glass of milk on the side. Now when Crazy Richard's means CREAMY peanut butter they are not lying, it is soo creamy!
This was the first time trying these Puffins and they did not disappoint! I have seen a lot of other bloggers having the peanut butter Puffins but I decided to try the Original first. The puffins are big in size and very fluffy. They were a great topping to my yogurt mess. All together now!

Well folks I need to peace outta here because I have a busy day ahead of me! I am going to watch my lil sis in her powderpuff football game early this afternoon. Then I have a hair appointment with my mom and sister. We always get our hair done the day before Thanksgiving! I will show you all the new hair later tonight ;) I am in desperate need of a hair cut and a highlight! Then we will be going to the grocery store to pick up all the goods and tonight will be spent cooking in the kitchen!

I am 99.9% positive I am going to make Kelly Ripa's Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Butternut Squash & Chestnuts which I saw this morning on the show. It looks super easy and good. Tell me what ya think. I like this recipe a lot because first of all it is a VEGGIE dish and it has my favorite veggies, brussel sprouts and butternut squash!

Are you making anything special for Thanksgiving?
