I am. My parents live 300+miles away from me, so spending holidays with them is sometimes impossible with my work schedule. It stinks. But, I’m spending it with my SOs family and they have always been warm and inviting.

Have a wonderful time in Texas!

Sounds like both events are great, the game sounds fun and Austin is wonderful so I am sure you will have a great time.

Thanksgiving is the only holiday that DHs family really does up big, we rarely see them on the other holidays.  My family decide to do something smaller on the weekend so I will kind of get to see them and have dinner with them.  I have to admit, that I really look forward to DHs family Thanksgiving more.  They eat, drink, and play cards all night.  It really is a lot of fun.

Welcome to Austin! 🙂 you’ll have fun here, promise! But yes, I’m also spending thanksgiving away from family. Fiance and I are supposed to be driving to Louisiana to spend Thanksgiving with his family but now he’s sick with the stomach flu so it may just be the two if us and a pack of saltines for the day. I’ve been bummed about missing out on family time too… I hate being the only one not at family functions anymore but it’s hard living away when everyone else is in the same city. To make myself feel better about holidays apart, I’ve started making something or bringing a dish that’s special to my family’s celebration. For example, this Thanksgiving I’m bringing the pie my mom always makes, last christmas I brought a Dutch Christmas bread. This way, I get to share my family’s traditions with my new family and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on all of the things I love about home. Hope this helps and you have a great holiday!

Yes, will be spending my first Thanksgiving away from home with Fiances family and I am really looking forward to it.  With all the drama of wedding planning I am excited to just have some relaxation away from my family as bad as that sounds.  We did just see them this past weekend though.  I’m looking foward to not having to travel and just hanging out and laying low.  FI and I have some big plans for starting on some projects around the house so it will be fun and productive!
