A Thanksgiving in England!!!!

Exactly 393 years ago English Pilgrims set sail on the Mayflower
for a new land...the land that is now 'Merica...

And on November 21st of this wonderful year at approximately 3:00pm 
I will be making the trek back to our homeland of England.
To see this handsome guy!!!

I'll be going to England on November 21st to
spend my Thanksgiving break with Tom!!! :) :) :) :) :)

It's been about a month since Tom went back home.
And just two weeks into the separation period we realized that
waiting six months to see each other again was dumb...lame..and not happening!!

This is when the Get Emily to Liverpool plan was born.

I'm still in school and i don't graduate till December...
which is why we figured it would be mid january before i'd get to see Tom again!!
Or even later if Paris happens.

Paris is kind of what sealed the deal for the both of us.
If i am fortunate enough to go back to Paris then it will be middle to late february before
i'd get to see Tom again....and well thats just not an option.

So we hatched up a little plan to make time go faster and give us some
time together in the middle of all of this waiting!!
It's only for 10 days...but it's 10 days we didn't have before.
And i know November is still a few months away.
But it's closer than next year!!

Plus when your British boyfriend suggests you go halfsies on
a flight just so he can get you over to just don't say no!!!
Even my mom admitted that she'd do the same thing...
That was after she scolded Tom for taking me away at Thanksgiving ;)

And this is finally blog worthy news because the flight has officially been purchased.
Tom was looking into it yesterday when we found a deal on a flight
that we just couldn't ignore.

He got into sugar daddy mode and bought the flight.
I will be paying for half of it in due time ;)
But sugar daddy...i'm one lucky lady!!

I'm just SO happy that i can go over there and meet his wonderful family
and show them what Thanksgiving is all about ;)
Food...and Family...and Food....and Food...Ha!!

Don't worry, i've already told my mom that we'll be skyping
her at each family meal on Thanksgiving Day.

Plus maybe next year it will work out to where Tom can
spend Thanksgiving with us here in America!!
The possibilities are endless...
Especially when you go halfsies on flights ;)

So there you have it!!
The BIG news :)

It's pretty exciting stuff!!
Know what else is exciting???
My Giveaway!!
It's running till next tuesday so
be sure to get in on it while you can :)

Have a wonderful friday and an amazing weekend!!


  1. Yay, that's so exciting!!!!

    My bf bought me a plane ticket to see him for our first Thanksgiving together too. I would have spent Thanksgiving alone otherwise, so it was extra-sweet of him.

    Are you going to make some traditional Thanksgiving recipes for Tom and his family when you're over there?

    1. I know I know :-D

      Aww that is so sweet!!! :)
