Preparations {and a SALE}

As I make the final preparations, I'm getting more excited to see my family.
They are coming tonight!
This will be my first Thanksgiving meal to cook and prepare.
No worries, I will have some help. :)
I've never roasted a turkey, never cooked a ham {my husband is spoiled}, never made stuffing.
Lots of firsts for me!
But let me tell you what I have made...
every year for at least 10 years...
the pumpkin pie.  
And it will be perfect.

Here's what my preparations have consisted of this week:



Monday night was spent making cookies and other goodies.


These were originally for our small group.  Sadly, it got canceled last night, so they will now be more goodies for the family.  I mean, they are my Dad's favorite cookie...


We got the meal all planned out.


Last night, my hubby surprised me and took me to eat Mexican.  Oh, I'm so glad I married someone who loves Mexican food as much as I do.  Isn't he such a cutie??  #howdidigetsolucky?

I've been trying to take advantage of the spontaneity in our life.  Sometimes I just get so "in the groove" of things that I know what needs to be done and when.  I don't want to take the time to cuddle or just enjoy each other's company, because there are things to be done.  But I've realized this, and now I'm trying to just take it all in.  Life is short and I don't want to regret always passing up opportunities.  So that's why I said "yes" to a spontaneous date out last night.
{Then I stayed up til midnight cleaning and doing everything else while he was sleeping.}


This is what is waiting for me when I get off work early today!  I'm making my pie and brownies for our dessert.  Friday, I will share all the recipes of the goodies I've made for Thanksgiving.  So be on the lookout for those!



I think this is the cleanest our living room has been in a l.o.n.g. time!  Other than our work bags and the orders that are going out today, it looks pretty darn clean.

I am really excited to share with you the details of our weekend.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends, or whoever you will be spending it with.
Are you going Black Friday shopping??

**For those of you who don't want to face the crowds {I don't blame you}, you can shop online in my shop.  As I gear up to turn 24 at the end of the month, we'll celebrate year 23 with a sale!**

Starting midnight on Friday, 11/23 and midnight on Monday, 11/26.


With every jewelry purchase, you'll receive a free red or green organza bag!
Use code YAYFOR23 at checkout.
But not until Friday or Monday! :)
Oh, and it may be the last time to get some of these items at these prices!
I'll be revamping my shop after Thanksgiving!
So get them while you can!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
