So sorry I haven't been blogging lately! Between moving and getting settled in, I haven't had much time. But now I'm back! And I can't wait to show you all we've been doing around the house! But first, Thanksgiving.
We weren't afraid to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving. That's why a deer and pumpkins were found side by side on our front porch. The pumpkins are now fertilizing our garden. I kicked those out as soon as Black Friday came.
Tim painted the shutters a few weeks ago. I'm in love. And the shutters are cool too.
Anyway, Tim and I had the honor of hosting our very first Thanksgiving! I feel like I was born for hosting. I had too much fun. And may have taken my job a little too seriously but I think everyone had a good time ;).
I got all of my decorations from Target! I loved lettering on these card stock place mats. I also made a tassel banner out of tissue paper.
Tim made the turkey and it was gorgeous. I didn't get a chance to take a picture before he started carving it and then I cried. Not really.
Because my husband is the poultry specialist, I made an apple pie and mashed potatoes. I tripled the recipe for the mashed potatoes. But I really only needed the single recipe. Potatoes for dayz.
Everyone brought a dish, we had so much delicious food!
I love this dining room table. Mainly because I love gathering around it with people I love! On Thanksgiving, we ate here, Black Friday shopped here, played games here and sat around it until 2 a.m.
I call that one successful Thanksgiving. I didn't want it to be over!
Oh yea, the tablecloth was from Target also! I thought it was too cute!
Then Friday we woke up (at 10A) to go shopping. It was memorable because I found two dollars in the parking lot. Did anyone else buy presents for themselves on Black Friday? Me neither. Except everything you see pictured below.
Now let's be in Christmas mode okay?!
