Almost Thanksgiving (in unrelated news: yay for Gingerbread Lattes)

Starbucks1-468x304So next week is already Thanksgiving. I really don't know where this fall season has gone. Everything has moved so quickly it seems. Normally the stores used to start all their Christmas decorations/promotions after Thanksgiving but this year it seems like November 1st after Halloween tons of Christmas/holiday stuff started popping up. The one thing I am happy about are Gingerbread Lattes from Starbucks. :) They had their "Buy 1 Holiday Drink Get 1 Free" promotion this weekend and I was happy to get my first Gingerbread Latte of the season. :) I do like the Pumpkin Spice ones as well and had a few but the Gingerbread ones are definitely my favorite. :) 

Had another busy 6 day week. The week kind of went by in a blurr, partly training a new employee (this is try number 3 in replacing someone and knock on wood maybe the third time is the charm) and partly preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday next week. I am sure next week will be very busy at work as well. I am looking forward to the actual holiday. We will be going to dinner with Mike's sister and kids at the Hopkins Inn. Went there last year and really enjoyed it so I am looking forward to it. 

Yesterday after work we went to see the movie "Lincoln". A really good movie. Today we slept in and didn't really do much. Met up with our friend John at TKs for a few hours. Then we went to Starbucks for my Gingerbread Latte. Now we are home and just relaxing. Will catch up on some recorded shows. And later on the American Music Awards are on so we will probably watch those. 

Mail Update: SO behind on my mail. Owe replies to: Lotte/Denmark, Charles/TN, Carmen/Malta, Nina/WA and Caroline/Scotland.
