I love Thanksgiving. Maybe because it’s right near my birthday and so that’s when we always celebrated and I got my gifts and got to see my whole family at the same time? Maybe it’s because turkey and dressing are the bomb? <— I think that’s it. Good food is a huge driving force in my life :)
Turkey and dressing wasn’t the type of thing we had every day. Nope. It was totally limited to Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas. But typically Christmas was ham time. It just depended on how much we begged Mimmie. Could we convince her that sweet baby Jesus would have wanted turkey? Because, you know he totally would. If we couldn’t Feast Mode only happened ONE time a year.
Come Thanksgiving we’d pile plates with turkey and dressing and mashed potatoes and gravy and green bean casserole and ‘orange stuff’. We’d sit our butts on down in front of the TV with our plastic TV trays in front of us and yell at the Cowboys. And when we were stuffed to the max it was time to fill up the dessert plate with Mississippi Mud Cake, lemon cream pie minus the meringue (you can keep your cow slobber, thank you very much) whatever other pies got made and more ‘orange stuff’. Mmm.
I know there is more to Thankgiving than food but it is truly my favorite part. It’s also the favorite of two little boys I know and since I can’t be there for Turkey Day 2016 I decided to make them shirts. I also made on for Mr. Rob because he wears the ever lovin’ heck out of the shirts I make him. For real. That pumpkin pi shirt gets worn every month of the year :)
And so I came up with the idea to use a common work out phrase (Beast Mode) into an awesome Feast Mode Thanksgivng tee. Huzzah!
