Thanksgiving has always been my most favorite holiday. I love that my birthday sometimes falls on Thanksgiving (2 holidays in one). I love that I am surrounded by family. I love all the DELICIOUS food (even though I am not a fan of turkey). I love that it is the beginning of the 'holiday season.' I love watching the Macy's Day Parade. I love focusing on all I have to be thankful for. And I love that it is the least commercialized and advertised holiday. Thanksgiving is about giving. The main thing it is known for on T.V and radio is feeding the hungry and/or homeless. I love that. It takes the focus off of "me, me, me," and puts it on what others have done for you and what you can do for others. I love that. I love the spirit of Thanksgiving and the message Thanksgiving brings.
A while later we went to my parents house for dinner #2. It was especially fun having everyone together. Chel came home from Seattle and Nils came down from Utah State. I guess since Jess doesn't live at home anymore, you could also say that she came home as well. It was super fun to be all together.
Atop the Empire State Building. The visibility was about 25 miles. It was such a beautiful, clear, sunny and FREAKIN FREEZING day. I think the temp that day was 22 degrees. But with the wind chill mixed with the humidity it felt like -500 degrees.
Yes, I went to the 'New Kids on the Block' concert and yes, it was probably the best concert I've been to. I was skeptical about the whole thing, my friends and I bought tickets mainly because we thought it would be hilarious. We had no idea we'd have the experience of a lifetime... no really, we did. The fellas put on the best concert and I have to say that my crush for Joey is back to attack.
Jordan was really feelin' it... and so were we ;)
After they did their piano routine, they walked down the aisle (that we were sitting next to) back up to the stage. Don't worry, I touched a few of them and freaking GRABBED JOEYS JACKET WITH TWO HANDS - and he looked at me!
Here he comes! (below)
Dana was super sad to see the concert end. After all the dancing and screaming, we were beat! It's not like we're in 5th grade anymore.
Good times ladies! I'm so glad we were able to experience this kind of joy together.
