things i'm thankful for

This is me, plus my panda (her name's Mai Ling)

Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I'm starting to prepare my stomach for the mass quantities of turkey, mashed potatoes and dessert. I made some things, but I feel like a complete baking failure. Fail fail fail. Why, you might ask? I didn't make a pumpkin pie.

Let's backtrack to what happened. I saw this really awesome (what I thought was) pumpkin pie recipe in a magazine. It used cream cheese, and, well, I love cream cheese. So I decided I'd make it for Thanksgiving with the boyfriend's famalam. I followed the directions today, mixing everything together and gave it a taste, and it tasted really rich. Like, really rich. But whatever, I thought, it's ok.

Well, I take a look at the actual recipe a little while later and, well, it doesn't say pumpkin pie. It says pumpkin cheesecake. I fail.

So now we're having a pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving. Hopefully no one banishes me forever for this stupidstupidstupid mistake.

Now, onto the things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving:

- My loving (albeit crazy) family, who let me stick around and babysit my nieces as rent while I looked for a job/apartment
- My health (which I can never take for granted)
- My wonderful and fantastic boyfriend (who I've been with for exactly one year today. Huzzah! Happy anniversary!)
- My friends, who keep me sane
- The overall happiness in my life. Because while things are rough, and I certainly have my moments where I wonder if I should be on Prozac, I am a happy girl. And I am happy to be this way.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
