Today Is A Special Day

Image From:

Yay! Not only is today special because it's Thanksgiving, but it's my boyfriend's birthday too! What do you know? 2 celebrations is one day! 

Now, I have to confess something...

We don't eat turkey on Thanksgiving.

We totally go against tradition. If my family and I weren't originally from Mexico, we'd probably join in with the crowd but I don't know, we just simply don't do the turkey thing. Instead this year we're going to eat an authentic Mexican dish - Birria, which is Chicken smothered in this spicy dry sauce, along with Spanish rice and vegetables. Oh, and Ham.  We do the ham. :)

But Thanksgiving isn't about the turkey, or how you decide to celebrate it. It's about being thankful for all the little and big things we have. And not only should we be grateful today, but we should give thanks everyday.  Can you image if we were only blessed one day out of the whole entire year? Same thing, we need to have a little note of gratitude in our hearts each day and not take things for granted. 

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving today surrounded by your family and loved ones.

Today is the last day of the "give thanks" link up that I've been participating in. So here goes 5 things that I am grateful for:

I know I already mentioned religion, but I just can't express how thankful I am for our loving Savior who died for our sins. 

The little things about life- like trees, butterflies, pretty flowers, white fluffy snow...

I don't know what I'd do without my laptop, internet, gps, and iPod.

Clothes and shoes to keep me warm in this freezing weather.

And last but not least,
I'm grateful for all you beautiful followers that take the time to read my blog.
Thank you.


  1. Happy Birthday to your boyfriend and Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I just love you. And there's nothing wrong with not eating Turkey on Thanksgiving (turkey can be too dry anyway). That dinner you're having sounds delicious!! Happy Birthday to Pedro, I hope you guys have a fantastic day. I'm grateful that I have such a great friend and coworker as you!

  3. Thats cool that you don't do turkey. You said it right, its not about that! Its interesting what other people do on this day of the year! Happy Thanksgiving!!
