Our first stop every year is the 24 hour Sonic for pop.  After shopping, we go get my mom, and our kids that don't shop with us, and we go eat at Denny's.  I'm going to miss my grand slam breakfast this year :(

When it was early morning, we would go to Starbucks for their hot chocolate. It’s amazing!

We would always get a pretzel and soda at the mall, and McDonald’s breakfast when we went out in the morning.

I always get Starbucks on my last stop; generally Target or the mall. I would wait until I got home to eat because there is nothing like Thanksgiving leftovers for breakfast. I would get a hearty breakfast and then crash, lol.

I hate coffee but in a pinch I will go to Starbucks for a pick me up. If I just want something warm for the line my go to is the Carmel Apple Spice at starbucks. It is the only thing I usually get from there. If I am not by a starbucks, I will get a peppermint hot cocoa from McD.

I'm hardcore, no food just a home prepped cold brew on drive and a bottle of water. Although this wearing a mask makes drinking difficult

The last few years, since we got a super wm we didn't have to wait outside any more. We would stop and get a hot chocolate at am/pm before heading to wm. In the past, we would go to Denny's to have breakfast and get a hot chocolate-to-go to take with us to wait in line at wm.

I used to bring my own while camping or hop over to Dollar Tree when nobody is watching me or my tents.

I stop right in my kitchen and then it's back to shopping on the computer. ;)

DM and I hit Starbucks early on in the evening, and then around midnight, hit Sonic before heading to the other side of town to finish up shopping.  Milkshakes to go are a good pick-me-up by that point.  And Sonic is maybe the best people watching opportunity we have.  Last year we saw a lady get into a fight with the manager over how long she had been waiting (not longer than us, for sure). The cops were called and everything!  For those of us that are pretty boring otherwise, it was an exciting night!  LOL 


This year, who knows?  Our governor may shut down indoor dining by then, so we will just hit a drive thru if we can find one.  Most of the stores we normally go to are closed on Thanksgiving, so I may just shop online this year and try to forget 2020 altogether.   :sidesplit
