Home for Thanksgiving!

We are at home in Chicago and it is rainy and cold! Mr. Prevention and I got in last night (midnight-ish our time), but made it to the gym already today! I even signed up for an 11am spinning class tomorrow. That is if my legs allow after the stair climber had its way with me today πŸ˜‰ Thank you, parental unit, for keeping our gym membership a “family membership”. There’s just no excuse to not take advantage when I’m home! πŸ˜€

Mom put me to work making breakfast: Cinnamon Biscuit Peach Cobbler from Taste of Home — it was NOT easy to make, but it sure was delicious!

My family’s infamous conversation piece at the table: salt and pepper shakers


My purty mama and handsome bro-bro


And Lily, who was rip roaring and ready to play at 6am after a 5 1/2 hour car ride last night…

She doesn’t look too energetic in those pictures, but I assure you she was. And now Princess Lily is sleeping in the comfy chair — a luxury (the only, quite possibly) she does not have at home!

Italian dinner and Chianti at home tonight with the family, Mr. P, and my college friend, Megan! πŸ˜€

Can’t wait for Thanksgiving, more family time, and food! πŸ˜€

I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving where ever you are!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving? Does Lily like riding in the car? My dog hates it. He always throws up. Ugh.

    I was pretty close with my buckeye guess!

  3. I want to meet Lily, so bad! I can’t wait.

    I’m glad you are enjoying your little mini vacation. GOOD FOR YOU for actually keeping up with the gym on vacation! Very few people have the motivation to do that, that’s awesome.

    Also, cinnamon bun cobbler is an amazing idea. Amazing. Is this the first time you have made it, or is it like an annual thing at the Prevention homestead?

  9. Glad you made it safe and sound Nicole!! Hope you and your fam have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  10. Glad you made it home safe. Our weather is just too chilly for me, but that didn’t stop me from grilling our ham! πŸ˜€ Hope you have a great Thanksgiving! πŸ˜€
