Madison's Thanksgiving List 2014

  • Having a wedding in New Orleans, and being able to visit multiple times this year to “plan”
  • North Carolina for giving my dad a great start to a new chapter in his life
  • Eastern Illinois University for giving my brother the opportunity to grow academically and socially.
  • Having had the perfect bridal shower thrown for me by some of the loveliest ladies I know
  • Being able to buy ridiculous outfits to embarrass my new niece
  • Gluten free pretzels. They’re actually better than the gluten-filled ones.
  • Clam dip
  • Half Shell’s insanely cheap crab legs
  • Finally finding a doggie sweater that will fit Charlie and keep him warm through ChiBeria: Part Deux
  • Being able to see the Bills beat the Bears with my dad, brother and Tommy at a Buffalo bar in Chicago while wearing a Bills jersey. And the gloating. Lots and lots of gloating.
  • Friendly’s for having a menu full of sexual innuendo
  • On that note, Urban Dictionary for their detailed definitions.
  • Hank Azaria praising my Simpsons article on Twitter
  • My consistently full schedule of concerts to see
  • Netflix
  • Carpeted dive bars, for giving my friends and me a place to hang out
  • And since I am my father’s daughter, I will also break the rules: I am insanely grateful to have a family that is loving, supportive, funny, good-looking and an all-around good time. 🙂

Love to you all!!

Sadly I haven’t had time to get into any new books/tv shows, but I have been listening to the “Serial” podcast. Strongly recommend checking it out.

  1. Tickled pink that your bridal shower made your T-list!
    Much love from your funny, good-looking all-around-hoot of an auntie,
    Aunt Karima (in case you weren’t sure which all-around delightful aunt this referred to)
    See you in NOLA!
