Top 5 Tuesday & a Blog Award

Happy Tuesday! I'll be linking up with Rachel for Top 5 Tuesday...this week's theme is Thanksgiving! YES!


1. Food

I think this is a lot of people's #1...

2. Traveling

Okay, so maybe this picture is exaggerated, but I feel like this is what 81 looks like on Thanksgiving weekend. Last year it took us almost 11 hours to get home!

3. Football

I love to watch me some football. Even if it isn't a team I particularly love or hate, I just like to watch! Family gathered around hootin' and hollerin'...it's fun. Virginia Tech is going to be playing UVA on Saturday though, so of course I'll be glued to the TV then! My Dad is a UVA fan, so this is a big game...plus it determines who goes to the ACC Championship! GO HOKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4. Dessert

When it comes to Thanksgiving, dessert almost has to be in it's own category. There are so many different desserts you can make! Pies, crumbs, cakes, tarts, etc. My favorite is probably apple pie - or of course pumpkin :)

5. Christmas shopping/Black Friday

A couple of years ago I braved the crowds with my mom, aunt and cousin - at TYSON'S!! Black Friday shoppers are kind of crazy. I'm not really in need of anything big, like a TV or phone, so I don't think I'll be waking up in the middle of the night to go fight with people for clothing and such. I'll stay home and shop online :) I do get jealous of all the deals, though!

What's your Top 5?

One of my favorite bloggers Maggie at Glitz & Grammar gave me the Liebster Award! Thank you so much, Maggie! I love knowing that people are reading and appreciating my blog. It means so much! If you aren't a follower of her blog - go NOW! You're truly missing out!
