Thanksgiving Festivities

Catching up...I feel like I am always trying to catch up on here. And I still haven't posted anything from Rome :(

On Thanksgiving Eve I went with some friends to Montelucia Resort in Paradise Valley. I never celebrated Thanksgiving Eve before but it was a fun night.

Me, Jackie, Tim, Erin, Megan and Olivia
This is supposedly the wedding door. The wedding hall was beautiful there...and I am sure REALLY expensive.
 The next morning, Heather, Kellyn, Kathryn and I ran the Lifetime Fitness Turkey Day 5k (#td5k). I finished with a time of 25:53 which was an 8:19 min/mile pace. Directly from the run I went to Bikram Yoga since I was in the middle of trying to get the most use out of a Groupon - lots of working out so no guilt in eating a big Thanksgiving dinner.
 Brussels sprouts - I love these! I make them roasted rather than steamed and they are so good that way.

 Thanksgiving dinner was at my parents with both sides of the family and friends too. Above is my friend Erin who is from the Philadelphia area and did not get home for Thanksgiving so I invited her over. After living in NYC, I am much more cognizant to invite people to holiday family gatherings when they have nothing going on.

Dont feel guilty about always catching up-at least you always post great pictures.
