So I’m not too sure how it snuck up on me so quickly, but Thanksgiving is only nine days away! Nine days, as in, NEXT WEEK! Wow.
What Thanksgiving traditions do you have? In my family, we start the day off with mimosas. I tear up all the way through the entire Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (What can I say? Parades make me cry!), and root for the Shetland Sheepdog in the National Dog Show. During and following the television highlights, my mom and I cook the different components of the main meal. We also come up with a few fun appetizers every year to keep everyone’s blood sugar up until it’s time to really eat. In the evenings, I commute to Tim’s parents house for dinner #2 with his family (last year I drank too much Veuve…). I think I am pretty lucky to have two Thanksgiving meals in one day…it’s definitely one of my favorite holidays!
This year, I am hoping to deck out our table a little bit. Our Thanksgivings are small since all of our extended family is on the East Coast, so it won’t break the bank to add little details like sweet place cards or a fun centerpiece. I am loving the place cards above, and I seriously wish we needed a kid’s table, because how cool is this popcorn-stuffed turkey from Martha Stewart?
