Thanksgiving

This is Shannon on alcohol. Not sure I've ever drunk posted before. Hey look at that, I still type pretty well, or, at least spell check makes you think I do. I broke a nail and typing is hard when they aren't all the same fucking length. So, whatever my mom asked me to post what I'm thankful for. Here goes nothing.

1. Kaluaha + Vodka + Half and Half = White Russian, yes am very thankful for 3 of those and a glass of wine, and a cordial of baileys.

2. Thankful that all the right family showed up this year and I enjoyed the most peaceful Thanksgiving of my life (minus the whole KIDS WON'T STOP SCREAMING THING)

3. I'm happy my run away niece got to spend the day with us. I miss her.

4. I'm thankful my parents help me pay for this whole fiasco. I'm thankful for the amazing house they have given me to live in too. Because, if you saw it, it's pretty fucking amazing

5. I'm thankful for carbs

6. I'm thankful that my fresh cranberry sauce was pretty fucking awesome this year

7. I'm thankful for the pie in the oven

8. (And the ice cream in the freezer)

9. I am thankful I've finally learned to surround myself with loving amazing people.

10. I'm thankful I'm able to reacognize that you don't need your entire family to be happy, that you only need the family that "gets you" around.

11. I'm thankful that I'm smart enough to realize that sometimes that family comes in unusual places (Ord)

12. I'm thankful my husband did something special and illegal for me (it involves vampires). He knows how to make me smile and he did it all on his own.

13. I'm thankful for the picture of Edward my mom hung in my closet today...now he can watch me get dressed.

14. I'm thankful for that time late at night when you take of your bra and your boobs drop and you think AHHHHHHH THAT FEELS GOOD

15. I'm thankful for watching my sons jump on my dads belly. Every kid deserves a papa like that. I didn't have one, but my kids sure do!

16. I'm thankful I wasn't to drunk to post about the time my husband got Sani Hut water on his face!

17. Finally I'm thankful for all of my loyal readers. For that small $30.00 BlogHer check I get each month. For the people who comment. The people who email me. The people who found me on Twitter and those of you who know me well enough to know when, well enough is enough!

Anonymous said...

Hey anon, why don't you leave a name? Nevermind, probably because you are so perfect that you have the perfect life. And if I find out that this is you, the person that I say at the theater the other night, I'm going to kick you in the fucking nuts and break you're god damn nose. Happy Turkey Day

; )

Misguided Mommy said...

MOM said...

We had a great time and Anonymous maybe you should have a drink seems your pretty up tight. I dont think Shannon was ever an alcoholic just a parting teenager like the rest of you. I had to much of a good time tonight to really respond to you so Ill ck you in the morning. Funny how you anonymous must have been reading Shannon for a while. Be a big girl or BOY and show your name. Dont you have a family to go tend to or are you just a lonely fuck. GET A LIFE ANONYMOUS

Happy Thanksgiving.

QueenBitch said...

To the first anonymous like get your facts straight. If you no anything about this blog you'll no that the writer cares about her family especially her children one time she wouldnt even take pain medication in fear that it might upset her child that she still breastfeeds. So for the writer to have a few drinks and enjoy herself ONE NIGHT OUT OF THE YEAR THEN SHE FUCKEN SHOULD.

End of my rant.

Please tell me that the ilegal thing your husband did involving vampires wasnt in becomming one was it? LOL

Enjoy the rest of your thanks giving :) dont let others get you down. and sorry if i've over steped the mark in my above rant you may edit or delete or whatever you decide :)

LOOK I SHALL POST MY NAME AND MY BLOG UNLIKE OTHERS.

Mom said...

I'm thankful I have a daughter that knows how to be funny and doesn't always have to take every thing so serious.

To me that is what her posting was about. Shannon being cute but honest too in some corky little way.

We had such a good day and yes she had a few drinks but it was good to see her laugh and have as good of time as she did.

She yahoo me when I got home and told me she posted and wanted me to read it. I had tears in my eyes when I read it cause she made me laugh which is what we had done all day.

Then some asshole tries to take that away from her. I'm glad she didn't let it get to her.

I'm very proud you stay honest to all your readers and let them all know that you drank. It shows you hold nothing back from them and I'm sure that is way they read you.

Shannon I hope me save me some banana pie

Thanks for a Happy Thanksgiving
Love you MOM

Misguided Mommy said...

queen bitch: You did not overstep your boundaries at all! Thanks for having my back, thats why I said I'm so thankful for all of you.

And no, he didn't become a vampire, he can't, he is secretly a werewolf...shhh don't tell

Not So Perfect said...

Ah...Shannon what a great post it made me smile too. Forget the haters jeez. It sounds like you have lots of things to be thankful for.

And yes you have my curiousity buzzing,, what did Rob do?

Cristina Mathers said...

shannon WISHES rob turned into a vampire!

QueenBitch said...

your husband is a werewolf? That is just crazy. :(

Mrs. F said...

Your husband is awesome! Anonymous commenters are not.

Steph said...

well, oh goodness. It looks like Anonymous must have had a pretty crappy Thanksgiving if this is how they spent it. Ridiculous!

I hope what Rob did somehow involved getting the rest of the 5th book! haha

Wow, anonymous... I'm pretty shocked that you would judge someone like that. Especially since this is HER page and we are lucky to have someone open up and share themselves to us. I have only left one anonymous comment before (about ways to save money by doubling up on 1 item for 2 dinners), and I will NEVER be anonymous again for fear of being confused with you! Shannon, you are awesome... you page is always a highlight in my day! :)
