November. That means:
- Less than 2 months until the major gift-giving holidays start.
- Black Friday Shopping!
- The end of Friday Night Lights for high school football and the start of fluorescent gym lights for basketball.
Have you started preparing? I barely have. I know that I’ll be hosting Thanksgiving. And I guess technically Christmas? But it will not be a normal Christmas for us. This year, we’re spending it in Hawaii! Yup – aloha Hawaii! For over a week, my husband’s family and I will be descending on the Big Island for fun and sun! There will be 13 of us staying at a rental house with a separate little house just for my husband and I and 4 boys. It will definitely be an atypical holiday (NO chance of snow!), but I’m excited.
But first I gotta get through November. I’m mentally preparing for much colder weather (although we’ve already seen snow, but then it warmed up). And colder weather usually means more comfort foods. Bring it on! I got my menu plan ready – how about you?
