Our Mini Linky Party | Week 151

Good morning!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you had a wonderful holiday week and you were able to enjoy some time with friends and/or loved ones! 

Fortunately, Adam and I were able to spend Thanksgiving Day together and it was really nice! After celebrating Friendsgiving and then being faced with so many campaigns and feeling a bit overworked, I made the executive decision to outsource our turkey this year. 

I went down the street and ordered a smoked turkey from the barbecue place in town, and we only had to reheat it to enjoy it with all of our other Thanksgiving side dishes and wine. I just could not bear to add one more thing to stress about to my never-ending to-do list (I always end up worried I will cook a dry bird or overcook it), so I decided to hand the job over to someone else for help! They say delegating is good, right?! 

As I do every year, I proactively did not shop on Thanksgiving Day. I've shared how I feel about this in the past, but I think it is downright cruel that employers demand their retail employees to work on Thanksgiving Day. 

But the only way we can change that is if we do not shop on Thanksgiving Day, and then the big businesses will see there isn't a demand for it (so they won't supply it!) Simple business idea, I know, but something I proactively remind myself of and encourage others to follow suit. Now that I've said my peace, allow me to jump off my soapbox and share some incredible ideas from last week's link party!

  1. Thank you for hosting this opportunity to bring bloggers together and share their posts. I look forward to your party each week.

  2. I feel the same way. I will not shop on Thanksgiving Day. This trend has taken the fun out of Black Friday for me. I talked about that on one of the posts I shared! Thanks for hosting!

  3. Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week. No shopping here on Thanksgiving Day
