happy Thanksgiving!

Notice a new look around here (unless you're reading in a blog reader)? I updated my template and *tried* to update my blog linky list but only managed to delete the whole section. So I tried to rebuild it, and I hope it's all/mostly there.

I'm getting really excited for Thanksgiving. It's always been my favorite holiday, but when you've gone through some tough weeks recently, it means that much more to spend it with your loved ones. I'm a little sad that my boyfriend won't be making the trip with me, but we have a weeklong visit with my parents in Ohio next month, and a month after that, we're heading to Georgia to see my brother graduate from basic training. So he'll be ODing on family time soon enough. =)

This will be a whirlwind visit. I'm driving up to Pennsylvania on Thursday morning and driving back Saturday afternoon. I'm especially excited for Friday; my parents are I are having dinner with one of my dear friends from high school and her parents. It's been two years since I've seen her! And my mom and I are going to my favorite yarn store in the world, Bloomin Yarns. I wish it had existed when I lived there (and, um, that I had knitted then). We went there almost a year ago (here's my blog post) and the store was in a cozy house. They recently moved about a mile down the road, and they're having a big moving/post-Thanksgiving sale. I am psyched to spend some $$$ there (even though I've only cast one with one of my four purchases from a year ago!).

I had a really good run yesterday (3 miles) and Saturday (my fastest 2 miles in a long time). I'm aiming for a 4-5 miler tomorrow ahead of my road trip - I need to earn my Thanksgiving dinner!

Oh yeah - I saw "Twilight" on Sunday. I enjoyed it a LOT, and I kind of want to see it again. There were some parts that were awkwardly cheesy or unintentionally funny, and I don't think they were supposed to be (at least the book didn't come across that way). And I am undecided on Kristen Stewart as Bella. But I thought Robert Pattinson was *awesome* and I am going to run away with him like every other fan in the world. haha.

This will probably be my last post before my trip, so happy Thanksgiving, everyone!


  1. Hey Laura,

    Hope you have a safe and fun trip. Happy Thanksgiving!!!


  2. Have a great Thanksgiving! Good job on the run. I went hard core on working out yesterday and now i am too sore to even walk up the stairs to my apartment. haha
