Thanksgiving, Home away from Home

This thanksgiving is my first away from my family. It is a little sad but also new and exciting. I am at my boyfriend’s, Alex, house.
We got here early early early Tuesday morning, 2a.m. to be exact. We left so late because I had to cheer at two games and then he had an interview at 10p.m. side-note: pray he gets the job. We went straight to bed after arriving at his house.
Tuesday was a pretty busy day, Alex and his brothers had dentist appointments and they were an hour away, so that took up most of the day. After that Alex and his youngest brother started putting up Christmas lights for a client of Alex’s. He puts up lights for people around his town every year, yay for bringing the Christmas spirit!
Today his mom and I got up EARLY, 6:45, and went to a boot camp. His mom goes M-F every week and works out every morning. They were doing a special and making it free for everyone this morning, you just had to bring a donation for the Thanksgiving dinner they are putting on tomorrow. It was an hour and a half, but it was fun. It was hard and tiring but it was defiantly worth it. Tonight Alex’s older brother and his fiancé will be arriving around 8. Her mother and brother will also be coming in. It is going to be a fun holiday.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and it is going to be great. There are a lot of family members coming in and everyone is bringing different dishes for the big meal. I’m so excited to see how they do Thanksgiving. It is going to be really hard to be away from my family and the normal things we do and foods we have but it will a great learning experience for me. It will give me a look into Alex’s life and how he does things and traditions that he wants to carry on into our life together. Oh yeah and we are doing a turkey trot. I have not ever done one so this will also be new. Me and Jenny will be doing the 5K and Alex and his older brother, Dustin are doing the 8 mile run. It’ll be a good way to start the big day of eating.
I’m not sure what is in store for Friday but on Saturday we are going to a wedding shower for Dustin and Jenny who are getting married on December 18th. It’s so happy to see them together and in love.
Sunday we head back to school and back to the normal life. Yippee!
But the sooner we get back the sooner the long Christmas break comes.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!!!!! :)
