Fun Facts about Thanksgiving

1. The first thanksgiving was celebrated with a three day fiesta! (Can you imagine partying for three days straight).

2. Mashed potatoes, pumpkin pies, corn on the cob and cranberries were not on the first Thanksgiving menu. Wildfowl, porridge and venison was probably on the menu.

3. Thanksgiving was not a yearly celebration by the pilgrims. Lack of harvest some years brought disappointment.

4.  The pilgrims used spoons and knives to eat with during the first thanksgiving. Forks weren't invented yet.

5. Every year, one turkey is pardoned in the U.S.A.

A Balanced Babe

That's the definition of being superficial. I'm sure everybody has had their moment of caring only about superficial things (and that's perfectly normal). But, living your entire life that way is cause for concern. There is so much more to life than the materialistic, inconsequential things we chase after. 
I found a fun quiz online that supposedly measures how superficial you are. While the quiz is not scientific, it does shed some light on the type of person you are. So, how superficial are you? Click the link below to take the quiz. Post your results in the comment box.


My results: I'm a Balanced Babe!
Your casual look makes you approachable, but guys still like to check you out from afar. You aren't very superficial, but you value unique style and certainly don't mind being scoped out by a hottie. Most importantly, you know that your appearance means nothing if you don't have a positive attitude to go with it.
