Our Thanksgiving dinner was on Saturday, and we had the full feast. While it was just my children and the Royals, I made everyone’s favorite sides and we had turkey & ham. On Thursday, we decorated the tree and put up the outside lights. My ankles are swollen and I’ve got oodles of reviews to write, but I am reading and binge watching season two of Virgin River. The #HoHoHoRAT ends tomorrow, I hope everyone had fun. Be safe, be kind, and Stay Caffeinated.

Hey Kimba! I’m so glad to year that you had a successful Thanksgiving. Ours was great too. The eldest came home early from college and we were happy to have the family together. Looks like you had a great turn out for the HoHoHoRAT!

Happy Thanksgiving! We had a lovely day at home and ate a lot of food. I just had the last of the leftovers in a big salad for lunch today. 🙂
Sounds like a really good family time. I cooked for my two friends and I and just did a turkey breast and sides. I am so done with turkey after 3 days of it! I’m sorry about your ankles. That can’t be comfortable. It’s pouring rain here and 5:30 am. I’m going to say goodnight now! Looking forward to the Vow review.
Glad to hear your holidays are off to a good start 🙂 Love that cover for War Widow, enjoy.

I’m glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. Nothing wrong with celebrating it a bit late — we’ve done that once or twice. I hope your ankles “deflate” soon. I hate having swollen ankles and feet.
Oh, Virgin River! I still need to watch the first season. And I’m very excited for the Bridgerton series, too.
Sounds like a nice holiday with family. I hope the swelling goes down quickly.
Happy Belated Thanksgiving. I’m glad you had a nice day. My family has most of our Christmas decorations up, and it’s all very nice and cozy.
Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving Kimberly. I got my decorations all up as well, hopefully it will bring some cheer to everyone, myself included. I also binge watched Virgin River and now am waiting to make sure there is a season three in the works.
We made a nice smaller dinner this year. I’m glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. Hopefully your ankles aren’t as swollen.
Sounds like a lovely Thanksgiving with family. We were able to have the full meal with my husband’s sister and her husband. Got our lights and greenery up today, but I’ll have to do the inside and tree this week when the snow storm keeps me in.
Been loving HoHoHoRAT with my book stack and the fun activities. Reminds me, I need to get my Instachallenge post up still. 🙂
Have a good week, Kimberly!
I binge watched season two of Virgin River yesterday! I like the scenery, the actors, and I feel like they got Mel’s cabin and Jack’s bar right. I wish they stayed true to the book plots, though. Glad to hear you enjoyed your Thanksgiving! 🙂

Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!

It sounds like you were able to have a wonderful Thanksgiving, always fun to get all the delicious food in right? I do want to watch that Virgin River series. I have enjoyed the books.
OMG.. The War Widow was SO good, I’m going to have to follow the whole series (and I don’t do that lightly, I assure you)!
We’re unfortunately probably not putting up a tree this year due to our project in the basement. The basement is now all over the upstairs so we can have room to work. I’ll probably still put out some of the smaller decorations though.
Sorry to hear about your swollen ankles. I hope they will soon look normal again. Glad to hear you and your family could enjoy Thanksgiving. I am making plans to be together with my parents on Christmas. We are two households and with the stricter rules now I might need to go into a ten day selfisolation before I can be with them on the 24th. Thank you for hosting the HoHoHo! Happy reading and stay safe and well.

It sounds like a lovely Thanksgiving! It’s been raining too much to put up our lights, but hopefully next weekend will be better.

I love the cover for The War Widow. Can’t wait to see what you think about that.

I’m glad you had a lovely Thanksgiving with family. Excited to read your Benedict Jacka reviews later this week
I wish we celebrated Thanksgiving over here in the UK, I feel like it sounds like something I would really love! Your feast sounds amazing.
I have also decorated my bedroom with a tree and lots of little decorations, and some warm fleece teddy polar bear bedding. It’s my birthday tomorrow so I’m trying not to think about Christmas until i’ve been on my holiday haha, but I’m just too excited.
Take care and get your feet up to help those ankles!! 🙂 x
Sounds like you had a great thanksgiving! We also set up the tree this week, it’s always nice to have it standing again. Have a great week!
Stephanie @ Once Upon a Chapter
We did a small feast for just the two of us. It was something I needed to do this year! I’ll be watching Virgin River this week!
Hope you have a great week Kimberly!
Jessica @ a GREAT read
Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving with your family. It seems like everyone’s had a nice quiet holiday at home which is nice. Our Thanksgivings are usually small anyway, so nothing was very different for us. It was just the post-dinner plans that were altered. Instead of going out to see more family (or shopping for me) we all stayed home and watched a movie on TV…instead of just popping it in the DVD player so we didn’t have to sit through all the commercials. Lol. I offered to do it at least twice but no one seemed to jump on the idea. Lol.
Nice new read! That’s a new to me one. I hope you enjoy it once you get to read it!
Here’s my StS
Have a GREAT day!

Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!!! We’re putting our tree up and lights this weekend. Slowly and in stages har! Hope your weekend is a good one!!
Sounds like a lovely week – we had our Thanksgiving on a different day too and I found myself thinking it’s much better earlier. Then I have more time to relax after the feast.
Take care of those ankles – put them up while you binge watch ?. Hope you have a great week!
Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out
I am binging on Season 2 of Virgin River as I blog hop tonight 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast
Wishing you a great reading week
Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving with the family!
Laura @ Library of Clean Reads
I’m loving the second season of Virgin River too. I’m seeing The War Widow everywhere. I hope you enjoy it and that your ankle feels better soon.
Erin @ Cracker Crumb Life
I am glad that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. 🙂
And I forgot that Season 2 was out!!!
We had Thanksgiving for two and it was lovely. I’m bummed that I probably won’t see any family this year, but it is what it is. Happy reading!
So good to hear you had a lovely, albeit quieter, Thanksgiving with your family and that you’ve been able to put your decorations up. I am planning to put mine up next weekend. ? Take care, rest those ankles and happy reading this coming week. ?
Glad you had a great turkey day! I loved all the pictures you posted. Those royals are getting so big! We put up our decorations on Friday and have been sort of relaxing the last two day but today I want to do a bit of blogging so I can get ahead for next month!
Have a great week, Kim! Happy Reading! xx
Glad your Thanksgiving feast went off so smoothly, Kimberly. I hope your ankles soon return to their normal size – in the meantime, I hope you are able to continue putting your feet up and enjoying your books and TV shows!

It’s been a busy few days here, too. Put your feet up and enjoy your books and show. 🙂
You are a very sweet hostess, making sure everyone had their faves.
Sounds like you have had a lovely Thanksgiving. We put our tree up yesterday and it’s lovely to have some sparkle!
Have a good week.
Tanya @ Girl Plus Books
Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving. 🙂 We did a lot of decorating on Friday and yesterday my husband did the lights outside. Already feeling like Christmas! 🙂
I am glad you had a great Thanksgiving and that you had a great meal. Have a great weekend.

Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving. I can’t wait to start decorating our home for Christmas. Hopefully I’ll be able to next weekend 😀
Have a great week and happy reading.
What a lovely long holiday weekend! I’m glad you made it memorable. Put your feet up and enjoy those reads.
Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving. And I also did some decorating Friday, got some reading in and am right now binging the new season of Virgin River:)
Sounds like a lovely Thanksgiving! I still have to watch season one of Virgin River. It looks like a good show.
Your Thanksgiving sounds perfect! And I also binge-watched Season II of Virgin River. It was great.
Enjoy your books and the upcoming week. I love the look of The War Widow.
Tressa @ Wishful Endings
I’m so glad you had a good Thanksgiving, even with the swollen ankles. I had so much computer week and late nights this week that mine were swelling up too. We hope to have decorations and lights up next week. Happy reading this coming week!
