Y’all, we’ve been married for over 5 years and I have yet to cook Thanksgiving dinner. Here’s how our Thanksgivings have gone down.
2006: We got married in June and honeymooned over Thanksgiving. So for our first Thanksgiving we ate duck in Bora Bora. (I really think this should be a yearly thing.)
2007: I was pregnant with Kalena so Brian’s family came to Texas for Thanksgiving. His mom cooked. She even made a ham because I had a ridiculous aversion to all poultry.
2008: We drove to Pueblo and had Thanksgiving at my sister’s house. (Long drive from Texas.) And we ended up having to stay an extra day because of snow.
2009: Back living in Colorado, we went to Alamosa to see Brian’s family over Thanksgiving. One last trip before Will was born.
2010: Thanksgiving at my parents’ house.
And now this year. I figured it would be Thanksgiving at my parents’ house again. BUT. Then my parents decided to ditch out on us for no reason! (Actual reason: Kari and Jonathan are blessing the baby over that weekend so my parents are going to that.) Fortunately I am a genius, so I suggested to Brian that we invite his family here. And they accepted which means, once again, no cooking for me! So. How long do you think I can keep this up? Do you cook for Thanksgiving or weasel out of it like me?
