It's OK Thursday...

Happy Thanksgiving!  Today I am linking up with Amber and Neeley for It's OK Thursday!

Its Ok Thursdays

It's ok...

...that I am not celebrating Thanksgiving today
My family is coming over tomorrow to celebrate instead since many of them work today.

... that I am trying a brand new recipe for Thanksgiving
I have never made Pecan Pie before.  This will only be the second time I have even made pie.  I wouldn't count stirring filling for a pie as baking one either though!

...that I spent $9 on tea yesterday
I found the Sugar Cookie tea!  It was at Target, and on sale!  It was meant to be.  I also got the Gingerbread Spice flavor as well.  Those were the only Holiday flavor options my Target had (I really wonder what the Nutcracker flavor tastes like!).  Also,  I met an older man in line while waiting to be rung up...he didn't seem as excited by my purchase as I was!

... that I had a split moment of insanity where I thought I was going to cut my hair.
I had the appointment made and everything.  I am glad I came to my senses before it was too late!

...that my second interview isn't for another week and a half.
I am thankful that I have a second interview, and a bit of time to find the right outfit.

I hope you guys have a great day celebrating this holiday (whether with a big group of friends and family or a small gathering)!


  1. So I am dying to the sugar cookie tea everything that you would hoped it be and more? Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Well, it did smell better than I thought it would, and it is good but idk what I was even expecting but I do like it. I think I am going to try the gingerbread spice one in a little bit!!

  3. Last time I had a hair appointment, I followed through but chickened out on how much I had intended to get cut off. Now I want to grow it out some. :) Enjoy the yummy food tomorrow and good luck on the pie making!

  4. Still looking for the sugar cookie tea, but I did pick up some kind of spiced chamomile tea, so I am feeling semi-sated!

    1. haha! I was definitely on a mission for it! But, if you check out my link to the Celestial tea website, you can put in your zip code and it will tell you what stores are selling it near you!!

  5. Glad you found the tea! Try adding some milk and agave (or other sweetener) for a richer tea. I definitely like it on its own too though.

    1. Good idea! I tried a bit of coffee creamer (to the gingerbread spice flavor) and that was pretty good. I do have some agave in the cupboard so I will give that a go in the morning! Thanks for the idea!
