Feasting and football...

I'm headed over to my Melissa's house in about 30 minutes and am bringing with me a bird (one of two).. talk about PRESSURE, also my homemade cherry cheesecake, brownies and cookies. Luckily I have a bunch of flex points left for today. I don't plan to use them on dessert though.. I'm a meal girl.. turkey, potatoes, gravy and STUFFING. :) I hope I get to take a little turkey home with me so I can make some soup and sandwiches.

So, I should tell you what I'm thankful for... many things, family (even though they can't seem to pick up the phone to call me), friends, my job, my home, my doggy & kitty, my life... But today I am thankful for Melissa because this is my first Thanksgiving with her. She has been my best friend for about 10 years and she has stuck closer than a brother. She is a wife, mommy to four little ones, and a faithful friend. She is forgetful but that comes in handy when it comes to others flaws because she seems to see right past them. She cares about the important things in life, like family and friendships.. all else is not even a close second. She is unique, can make me choke with laughter, we can finish each others sentences... But above all this, she has a heart of gold and there is none like her.
