Okay, so really by last I am talking about those details you take care of in the last two to three days before Thanksgiving…or any party. For me, its all about pulling things together and doing anything and everything I can in the days before to save me time the day of my event, in this case family Thanksgiving.
Again,… Continue reading
We are getting closer to the big turkey day and I don’t know about you but my mouth is wat-er-ing!!! I found out that we are fortunate this year and everyone of our family is going to be here. So that means that we are potlucking, but that doesn’t mean that I am out of cooking. So my planner comes… Continue reading
There is not much about the holidays that I don’t like. In fact, there is only one thing that I don’t. Crowds. Its not that I don’t like people, I love people, but crowds are a-whole-nother phenomenon. They take on a not so friendly attitude and can be more than pushy. So in order to keep my friendly pleasant holiday… Continue reading
I love decorating for the holidays! Thanksgiving is no different in that love. I do limit the amount only because of the need for a quick clean up for Christmas. Christmas throws up tastefully in my house but there is just A LOT! So I tend to keep Thanksgiving Décor to key locations.
I define key location as anywhere family… Continue reading
Its no secret that I love to entertain, that I love hosting parties. Perhaps it is because it puts my keen organization skills and detailed eye to good use and somewhat honors the control freak in me. Regardless I love entertaining! Add to it the joy of the holidays and fall (my favorite albeit too short season), I’m in party… Continue reading
I have often found that when it comes to our soldiers there is always a mixed “bag of goods” and that history has not always been kind to our soldiers. I am grateful beyond measure for days like today that honor our soldiers. I, personally, have made… Continue reading
Many of us, at least I think, establish family traditions around Halloween, Easter, Christmas, birthdays and similar but other than enjoying an enormous meal filled with delicious goodies and hopefully surrounded by family, I’m not sure how many people out there establish Thanksgiving Traditions. It is a holiday uniquely American (though Canada and a few others have their own Thanksgiving),… Continue reading
My son has hit sixteen this year and it has been a little while since he was of trick or treat age. Where we lived there is an Old Town area that is known for its trick or treat function. A good friend of mine lives on the route and she and her husband have to take turns so each… Continue reading
Today in my inbox pops Pinterest’s daily email, this time featuring Pumpkin Carving! I must admit it was impressive the creativity that goes in to creating these little works of art. I was impressed. I am even more amazed at the sometimes air defying and humongous works of sculpture created by the pumpkin artists on Food Network’s Halloween Wars. They… Continue reading
I love, capital L-O-V-E, love this time of year. It warms my heart and starts the celebration of family season. In North Carolina, the leaves would have already started to turn, the State Fair would not be far off and bundling up started to become a must. I’m actually jealous of my husband’s fishing tournament today up in our So… Continue reading
