Five Things to do Over Thanksgiving Break


This lovely time off for Thanksgiving has been much awaited! It has been 3 months since I have last been home and I am actually excited to be back for a little bit. It is going to be so weird being back and seeing everyone but I for sure am going to love sleeping in my own big bed and get away from dorm life. I know that I have changed being away but it has been for the best! I can tell these differences so I wonder if anyone else will. But to save yourself from torrential-parent-question-overload try a few things to remember your independence, I plan on going back to some of my favorite places and seeing old faces.

1. Go to the Farmer’s Market

I am starting to forget what non-college food is like. The Farmer’s Market at home is probably one of my favorite places for a morning croissant, fresh raspberry lemonade, and people watching.

2. Get a decent amount of sleep

You are most definitely lacking on sleep. Take advantage of your bed and clean sheets your mom probably put of before you came and make up for some of those long nights.

3. Have a coffee catch-up date

Meetup with an old friend and exchange your stories or meet someone who is about to graduate high school to give some good first semester advice.

4. Play with your pets, or parents

Your parents have been looking forward to this longer than you have and you cant’t bring your dog back with you.

5.  Give Thanks

Offer to help with this thanksgiving and contribute whatever you can even if it’s your awesome table setting skills but don’t be asked to help, just offer. Then you can stuff your face with some good home cooking.

Mother’s Day Breakfast

We all love our Moms right? Right! And with Mother’s Day a week away you also probably need a gift. Well if you want to try an awesome gift from the heart then what better than to show off some cooking skills. If your mom is like mine there is no other meal more loved than breakfast! Here are some basic recipes that would make for a great start to her day, maybe throw in some flowers as well or a nice hand written card that she probably hasn’t received since you were seven.
