thanksgiving in pictures


Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!

Weather for the Turkey Trot 8k
Running the Race (See that hill behind me? That pales in comparison to some of the hills...painful for this Florida girl). 
 But we made it! I ran with a friend's husband. I finished my first 8k in 44:48 (9:01 miles), which I'll take because of my hip problems lately and the insane hills on the course.
 Afterwards I visited my sister's salon (in her bathroom) for a quick hair and makeup fix.
And we were off to chow down at the family's house.
I was still good and counted calories and actually didn't go over.
 Me and Kacey
 Cousins {Ashley and Holli}, sister, great aunt {Peggy}
 me and dad after a big meal (he perused the paper while I checked out the sale ads)

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I am going to share my Greatful Swap goodies on Sunday, because {Sar} did an amazing job! I am supposed to post today, but because I'm in Chattanooga and my goodies are in Tampa, I have no pictures! Suffice it to say she hit the nail on the head and I've already put my gifts to great use!

Thanks for reading! I'm so very grateful for my friends in the blogging world and wish everyone a wonderful time with their family!

Congrats on your run, girl! I would say it was safe to not count those calories after your feat, but good job for staying disciplined! :) Glad you had a good Thanksgiving!

I love the idea of a turkey trot! So necessary around Thanksgiving -- hello, food hangover!
