Happy Thanksgiving yall.
It is almost time to drive up to my cousins house and see all of my family.
I am very excited because I get to hang out and gossip/talk/share/laugh with my cousins who are relatively all the same age or close. I expect to laugh at some of the things my relatives do or say to one another. The ladies talking about fashion, the men taking about ...actually I don't know what goes on. I don't quite understand Vietnamese that well. shame shame. My aunt forcing everyone to eat even though they don't want to. But you know what I dread mostly? being forced to talk about myself! especially when it comes to school or my relationship. Usually the conversation ends up with them suggesting career options and school that isn't even close to what I want to to. But I am hoping that doesn't happen to me today, I'll just end up hiding near my dad or something. Ha, well Happy Thanksgiving!
This morning I had puffed wheat cereal with dried cranberries, a little bit of shredded coconut, and chocolate chips! with almond milk! it was good! and suprising. The good thing about this cereal is that there are no preservatives or sweeteners. The ingredient is plain and simple: Puffed Wheat!
It was yummy. My mom was eyeing my cereal and was confused. "How do you eat this?"
"ummm, like how you would eat any cereal."
"How did you eat it?"
"With almond milk!"
She had never touched almond milk, so when she tried for herself she thought it was disguisting. It wasn't sweet enough. I understand because my mom is so used to eating cereal with whole milk and actually having her cereal laden with excessive amounts of sugar. She is such a horrible eater that it scares me. Of course I knew my taste buds have been adjusted to enjoy something like this. Hers on the otherhand is whacked out! I don't blame her, I used to be the same way, until I trained myself to eat clean.
I am so in love with this leather jacket! I have been wanting a leather jacket but I really need to find the right one that I would love to wear all the time. I am looking for something like this. It's such an excuse to go Christmas shopping. I might have to sacrifice buying groceries for this :o)
