Thanksgiving week was an absolute blast...the Today show said that the average American gains about one pound during this holiday, but I tell ya, I am sure I gained about five! I was literally in the kitchen the entire time cooking and eating...not complaining. On Wednesday I had a chiropractic appointment; my back has been bothering me for the past couple of months so my mom also booked me a massage...my first one! Pretty crazy I know. I'm 21 and had never had a massage before...I think it's because I was always afraid I would start laughing since I am so ticklish. You'd think it would be nice and relaxing, but it ended up being quite a painful experience! My masseuse told me that I was so tight and knotted up in my upper back that she doesn't know how I was able to go on with my daily activities. Luckily she somewhat was able to loosen everything up:/

|My sister and my friend Carol made chocolate covered preztles with peppermint!|
It was also my grandma's 87th birthday! We made her a Japanese roll cake, but made it in the shape of "87". She was definitely happy...a love of sweets!
What did you guys make this year?
