A Thankful Friday Five

Morning and HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! Cheers to the weekend, yeah? Today in place of the normal Friday Five, I figured I'd get in one last THANKFUL post. Normally I post these on Thursdays, but yesterday was all about TREATS.

I'm Thankful for Early Celebrations: Yes, early! This year is Thanksgiving with Le Husband's family so my family celebrated earlier this week. It was a delicious dinner of ribs, potatoes, casseroles, cornbread, rolls and of course Mama B's famous Oreo Ice Cream cake. We laughed, told stories and of course stuffed our faces. I'm so thankful for my wonderful family, they are so supporting and loving and I'm so blessed to have them! #bradybunchfamily #antondas


I'm Thankful for Health: Last year around this time I was dealing with some unexpected news that threw my family for a loop. Thankfully, this year things are fine and everything is well. I am so THANKFUL to be healthy and to know those I care about are healthy as well. My body is in the best shape it's been in awhile {thank you WHOLE30 and hard work} and I'm so grateful for each and every day I greet the day happy and healthy. #getouthereandmove #happytobehealthy

I'm Thankful for Inspiring Words: LOVE YOUR LIFE!

I love that you guys celebrating a little early - we did that too with my husband's family last weekend. Health is such an important thing...my MIL fell this week and is in the hospital so it's times like this we truly value health a little more than normal...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend love! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

What a fun early Thanksgiving. We usually stay home for the holidays but this year we’re celebrating with my husbands family too so I’m making sure to get in as many celebrations with my family before that.

Looks like a delicious early Thanksgiving! I am hosting this year, my brother and his family is coming which means a lot. We haven't spent a holiday with him in almost 10 years....

Safe travels. I can't believe all the scare was a year ago. So happy all is well and well that you are in my life. I was just thinking what a hard and wonderful year this has been and how much you played a part in that. Love you to the moon and so thankful for you, your friendship and constant support and prayers.

How fun your family celebrated a little early so you could go to the hubs family for actual Thanksgiving weekend! Such a lovely family photo and your mom's Oreo dessert sounds amazing! lol

Cara (Kindly Unspoken) said...

Haha your funnies are the best! That's great that you got to celebrate early with all of your family. We're actually celebrating this Sunday and I'm debating whether or not to cook the traditional meal or spice it up a little. Have a great weekend!

You're funnies are hysterical! Hope you have a great weekend, sweets!

I need to read through those airport secrets since I'll be traveling!

Aw I love this post! So much to be thankful for! Your early celebration sounds fun...I love having more than one day of celebrating. I am celebrating on Wednesday with my family since my dad has to work on Thanksgiving day, so then I am going to my boyfriend's family's dinner on Thursday. Love the Thanksgiving themed laughs! I hope you have a great weekend!

all about that baste made me laugh so hard.
i love that your family celebrated early because you're celebrating with your husband's family. 2 thanksgivings!
good to hear everything is okay girl - health is something i think people (including myself!) take for granted and i always try and remind myself how lucky i am to be fairly healthy and not have any issues.
happy thanksgiving girl!
