Thanksgiving With Joshua Bell

November 21, 2009
I’m Thankful for…

PhotobucketPeople who are building homes and remodeling. Why? Because they are keeping my husband in a job and therefore keeping our family warm.

Photobucket20 year olds who make the decision to go to college and become school teachers… even though they know the salary sucks, and benefits are getting worse. Why? Because they are teaching my children and sharing their dreams with mine.

PhotobucketA country of freedom, where immigrants are welcome. Why? Because my great-great grandparents didn’t grow up in this country… instead they immigrated here and I DID.

PhotobucketReligious bigotry in a country built on Religious Freedom. Why? Because the founders of my religion were likely made stronger as they were forced from their homes, banded together and eventually walked across the plains to create a new home. In the process deepening and solidifying their own beliefs, laying the foundations and organization of which my family is benefiting.

PhotobucketAll the changes and uprooting and moving during my married life. Why? Because I know literally hundreds of people all over the country I call Friend. Thank you for being part of our lives.

Joshua Bell’s new album:
At Home With Friends

It’s great music for Thanksgiving Turkey Making!
The music is calm and moving and perfect for family time on a holiday.
(Plus, I am so in love with the Sting song…)
We will be putting up our Christmas Tree on Thanksgiving Day to this music.

Thanksgiving 4-1-1

November 17, 2009

From my Foodie Friend Chris Perrin…
I have an announcement!
Wild Turkey in display.

This November 26th you have a job.
It’s Thanksgiving and for one day, it is your duty to stuff yourself silly with all the turkey, potatoes, sweet potatoes, rolls, and pies you can eat.

Thanksgiving Dinner Table

There’s only one problem. Someone has to cook it. Someone has to bake the turkey, make creamy mashed potatoes, stuff the stuffing, dress the dressing, fill the pies, and maybe pour a cocktail or two. Or ten, depending on your family.

If last year’s turkey turned out a little less then perfect, if you are bored with regular Thanksgiving fare and want to try something new, or if you are on the eve of making your first Thanksgiving dinner, then’s Thanksgiving 4-1-1 is for you!

PhotobucketTHIS THURSDAY EVENING 7PM Central!!
Email or DM Chris to be included!

It’s an hour long (maybe more) conference call about all things Thanksgiving cooking hosted by founder Chris Perrin. Best part: it’s free. Just dial in and ask away!

Also, all Thanksgiving 4-1-1 attendees can sign up for Thanksgiving 9-1-1, personalized consulting to get you through any Turkey Day challenge. Hurry, slots are filling up!

Done Turkey!!!

I am giving my personal testimony of Chris’s long distance skillz. Last year I was part of his Thanksgiving Turkey Talk. Get this… He walked me through BRINING a Turkey! Not sure what that means… ? Then ask Chris… he’s the expert after all!
