Many People to Thank this Thanksgiving!

I guess the holiday weekend is coming to an end for all of us. Back to work tomorrow! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We stayed in Nashville this year for Thanksgiving and unfortunately did not get to spend the holidays with our family. With Cain due in less than 10 weeks we didn’t want to be too far away from Vanderbilt. Even though we weren’t able to be with our family, we have many people to thank for helping us to have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

First, we must thank Derek & Andrea for inviting us to join their family for Thanksgiving. Derek is a high school friend of Brad’s who now lives in Nashville. His parents, sister, brother-in-law, and two nieces were all in town from West Monroe. We really enjoyed visiting with his family and eating lots of wonderful food.

Secondly, we thank Dane for inviting us to go see the Rockettes with his family Thanksgiving night. Dane is also a friend from Louisiana that lives here in Nashville and most of his family was in town visiting. The other half stayed back in Louisiana so they could go hunting. I think Brad and Dane both would have enjoyed hunting more than watching the Rockettes! I also think it will be the last time Brad will ever watch the Rockettes and I will probably owe him for life for going with me. But I do know he enjoyed visiting with Dane.

Next, we must thank the employees of the Waffle House where we had dinner after watching the Rockettes. It was Thanksgiving night and at first we thought they were closed. Thankfully, they were open and ready to serve us! I don’t think they had many customers that day and seemed very happy to see us. They even gave us coupons for free drinks on our next visit. It’s the little things like getting coupons for free Waffle House drinks that make me happy!

And last but not least, I must thank my wonderful husband for helping me accomplish much of my “to-do” list this weekend. Actually, he is still working as I type this blog. Even though we weren’t able to check everything off the list, you can see we accomplished A LOT!

Brad at the Rockettes? That is a sight I would love to see!!! I am so happy to see that you are getting so many things done in preparation for Cain's big arrival. I think you have done more in 1 week than I have done in a year - your energy never ceases to amaze me.
