Black Friday Traveling

26 Nov

Most people were up bright and early today to go shopping.  We were on the road at 6:30am to drive to Pennsylvania.  I am writing this post from the car as we drive through West Virginia.  Black Friday will always be a special day to me.  2 years ago I said “Yes” and got engaged!  It was a fantastic day.  We were at my parents in PA and got engaged that morning.  I was able to see my family and my grandparents and share the exciting news.   We then got in the car and drove to Cincinnati to celebrate with Tony’s family.  We got to see his family and extended family that weekend.  It was great being able to share such a special day with all of the ones we love!


Back to Thanksgiving….

I spent the afternoon cooking mashed potatoes, green beans, and Brussels sprouts.


With our side dishes in tow, we drove 15 minutes to Tony’s parents for dinner!  We had so many options.  Everything was delicious!


There was Turkey and Stuffing,

and a family that had a wonderful Thanksgiving!


I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving as much as we did.

It’s time for a Starbucks stop in West Virginia.  We are getting closer to my family, mile by mile!

What do you do with your Thanksgiving leftovers?

I like to make turkey quesadillas.
