Turkey Trot Link Up Bloggie Style

What uuuuuuuup!  Today is my Friday at work YAY! I'll be super busy until I get in the car tomorrow to head to California...cleaning, running, getting things ready for the dog sitter, and talking to my dogs about behaving while mommies are gone.  

But for now...

Okay so as you know I am Rookie-of-the-Year and so instead of doing a vlog like others (I look like shit today) I'm blogging my answers...

Questions and Answers:

1. What do you look forward to more: the food, football or parades?
~ I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Macy's Day Parade and some day I will get to go.  My family lives in New York and so naturally I have been obsessed with all things New York my entire life.  So...yeah...parade.

2. What is your favorite non-traditional Thanksgiving Day dish? 
~ Okay last year the entire state of California was out of green beans and my Uncle Scott was supposed to make his amazing green bean casserole...but he switched it all up on us and made a wasabi and asparagus casserole and for real dog it was delish.  He also runs a food blog and everything in it is YUMMMMMM-Y  go check him out Gourmet Gibbs (click here)

3. After dinner, is it football or a nap?
~Well how we roll in our family is booze, booze, more booze...turkey...get a cab home.  So after dinner it's more like "pass out"

4. Do you watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Which is your favorite float?
YES!!  Macys Day Parade = bombtastic!  I have a couple of favorite floats...Snoopy, Mickey, Rockettes, and Santa...ahhhhh I'm so excited already!

5. Where do you go to celebrate and eat your big meal? Who is there (family, friends)?
~Well Becky and I go to San Diego for Thanksgiving.  Our Aunt Terry and Uncle Tom host an awesome dinner...its all fancy with name cards and you can't sit next to the person you came with...family(Grandpa Max, Uncle Scott, Uncle Brian, Mom, Dad, and some family friends...no children allowed.  The food is amazing, the conversations are always a good time and there is always plenty of booze.  Last year our Uncle Brian and Dad Scott for some reason went into a musical montage and something about Jesus Christ Superstar was going on....loud ass singing...yes this was at my table and I like to think I had something to do with the awesomeness that happens at my table every year.  The year before a "friend" of the family called our Uncle an asshole as she was sauced-out-of-her-mind and then poked him. It was uh-may-ziiing! Only because it was my first Thanksgiving with the family and I had the hot mess at my table and left Thanksgiving dinner looking like an Angel!!!!!  *high fives all around* 

6. What is your favorite turkey day dessert? 
~Uncle Brian is in charge of desserts.  He makes Cheesecakes...homemade and delish!  I am looking forward to the yumminess that will explode in my mouth:)  (hold back on the jokes....hold back....)

Anyway that's about it....Love you all out there ... Have a good Thanksgiving and stay safe!
