Total Basset Case: Turkey Eve

Nov 21, 2012

Turkey Eve

Yay it's Turkey eve!
The day for seeing all of your friends and family and trying on your elastic waist pants.

I am joining up with Shanna for her second round of 'Random Wednesday'.
I found some really great blogs who had linked up last week so I suggest you get over there and check out all of the other awesome ladies.

1. I'm contemplating using the picture of Floyd at the table with us for our Christmas card.
Would that really make us those crazy dog people?
(see here if you don't know what I'm talking about)

2. I've done my fair share of baking already for Thanksgiving and I can not wait to dive into everything!
(Mister has already taste tested a little- he said it was only right, we wouldn't want to serve something that was bad.)
So far I've made a pumpkin roll (recipe from Kait), PW's Good Morning Muffins and we are currently on our 4th (in 2 weeks) batch of energy balls.
I am also going to make a derby pie for our second round of Thanksgiving meals.
(Is derby pie just a midwest thing? Do you know what I'm talking about?)

3. Who is going shopping on Friday?
We are definitely planning on braving the crowds.
I don't have anything particular that I am on the hunt for but I love being in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

4. Please read this article, you won't regret it.

6. This.
 I mean, there isn't even an explanation. He is just a total weirdo.
Gettin his lean on.

5. Seeing as it is Turkey Eve, I thought it was only right to talk about a few things I am so very thankful for this time of the year

-Family: my boys, my mom, my extended family, my in laws.
I am so thankful to be surrounded by such amazing people.
-Friends: I have an amazing set of girlfriends in my life and do not know what I would do without them.
 These ladies rock. 

 This means you too, my incredible blog friends, as well!
I love you ladies and never expected this blog community to be so welcoming and amazing.
I am so happy to have all of you friends in my life!
-Food and wine: I just really love to eat, cook and be in the kitchen.
And kitchen gadgets. Man, I love a good kitchen gadget.
-Holidays and traditions: I am always excited to reminisce about past holiday traditions and especially glad to start new ones this year at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
-My Job: I have the pleasure of working on some really cool projects and with very interesting products.
I have a very fun project we've been working on coming up to show you guys!
 I could go on and on (diet coke, shopping, sweatpants, ice cream...) BUT I'll stop for now.

I think that is about enough randomness for today!
Floyd and I are taking the rest of the week off to spend time with friends and family.
Follow along on Instagram (totalbassetcase) to keep up with what we are doing. 
Enjoy your Thanksgiving friends!!

I will continue to rally for Floyd dressing as Charles Dickens, but you know I love that photo of him at the table. BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING! WOO WOO

Yes, that was probably the stupidest comment of all time. Floyd is probably trying to make merry on your lap in the car as. I. type.

Erin said...

Haha- you should definitely use that pic of you guys at the table! I love it! I also love the lean photo of Floyd, it looks like he got his Thanksgiving pigging out done early !! ;) haha!

Jen said...

I love the idea of using the pic of Floyd at the table. I can't wait to see what you end up using. I just ordered my Christmas cards, which are also dog themed, and can't wait to share with everyone. Being a crazy dog person is cool :)

Erin said...

Umm yes you should make that the picture! Is this even a question?

Because Shanna Said So said...

Uh, YES, you have to use that picture for cards!! It was precious...Floyd is part of the fam!! And I will be hitting up the Black Friday shopping too...just not at the booty crack of dawn. Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for linking up!! Love ya!!

Darby Hawley said...

YES! That is a great picture of y'all (and Floyd!) Hope you have a delicious Turkey Day!

Holly said...

Yes, use that pic of Floyd at the table with you! Awesome! I like that he's eyeing the food!

You are brave going out on Black Friday without a list. I have to know what I'm going after or I may want to run someone down...haha! Good luck! And happy turkey day!

Jayme @ Her Late Night Cravings said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you guys!! That picture of Floyd still has us cracking up! He's got so much personality!

Lindsay said...

Oh my that pumpkin roll sounds delicious! And good luck on Friday. Hope you get a bunch of great deals!

Casey said...

A few things:

First, if you used that photo for your cards, it would make my entire holiday season.

Second, I have no idea what a derby pie is, but it sounds like something I should find out. Do tell.

Third, does Floyd always perch on the back of your couch like that? Pierre does the same thing - like, he stretches out like a cat on the back of "his" couch (our loveseat) and that's where he sleeps.

I hope you guys have a lovely Thanksgiving :) Pierre will be donning his antlers bright and early on Friday in anticipation of the Christmas season.

Ashlyn said...

You should definitely use that picture!

Ashley said...

Floyd's picture should ABSOLUTELY be included!!

I can't wait to dive into Thanksgiving food,either!! Yummm...

I'm sitting here with my sisters and showing them pictures of Floyd. He has become an instant superstar in our home tonight!

I have no idea what a derby pie is (I'm an east coaster).

Happy Thanksgiving!
