There's nothing like Thanksgiving. From the Macy's Parade to stuffing your insides with copious amounts of turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy — it's a day for food, friends, and family. So why not throw in some lovable 80s kids and a couple demogorgons along the way?

1. Waking up excited for the day of feasting

Food— get in my belly!

2. Giving your outfit an approving look before walking out the door

Can I eat large amounts of food in this? Check. Is it stain-proof? Check.

3. When the hoards of family members start swarming the house

THEY'RE COMING

4. Trying to socialize with people you haven't seen in a decade

Hi! You say that we met when I was seven but I have no idea who you are.

5. When you open the casserole pan and it's all cheesy, steamy, and gooey.

No amount of heart-eye emojis could capture this feeling

6. Sitting at the kids' table (but not really having a problem with it anymore)

Your cousins are actually okay!

7. When your great-aunt (that CAN'T cook) brings a dish and you have to eat it out of kindness

Oh, look... thank you?

8. When your uber-political uncle decides to bring up his support for Trump at the dinner table

Can we not? I will drop-kick you across this room if you bring up his name one more time.

9. When it's time for the family to get lit

Nothing like a post-Thanksgiving party and roast sesh.

10. Waking up from that killer Thanksgiving food-coma

The struggle is real

11. Finally breaking out the holiday decorations after all of the festivities - it's Christmastime!

TIME TO DECK THE HALLS

The weather is finally getting warmer and summer is just two short months away.

The other day I got my first whiff of food being cooked on the way home and it made me think of all the stuff I want to do this summer and what I want to accomplish in the upcoming months. It also made me think about how I make the same promises to myself every year and don't accomplish half of the things I want. So, this year, I decided to make a summer bucket list. I've heard of people doing this and I always thought it was kind of stupid, but I figure writing it down would motivate me more than just thinking, "That would be a nice thing to do."

So here are some things on my summer bucket list and hopefully they inspire you to go out and have the best summer of your life.

1. Find and do a summer exercise challenge

2. Go on a road trip

Now that the semester has ended and beach days are upon us, it seems to be time to get into the spirit of summer.

For me, nothing compares to that hour drive to the shore with speakers blaring, windows down and the warm breeze hitting my our cheeks as my best friend and I make our way to our favorite summer spot. We walk down the boardwalk shamelessly singing, smiling and looking out for eligible young bachelors. Once we take to the warm and set our home base for the day, we add one final touch... our speaker playing songs that SCREAM summer.
