I am thankful for a one and half day work week!

I am thankful for my husband

 I am thankful for Black Friday Sales

I am thankful for this healthy little peanut 
I am thankful that I can eat Thanksgiving dinner this year vs last year when I was 8 weeks pregnant and could only stomach easy mac

I am thankful for my health, our home and a great occupation.

I am thankful for wine

I am thankful for a super supportive family

I am thankful for feeling blessed

There is a lot more that I am thankful for but why bore you?
This Thanksgiving we have started a new tradition. We will be hosting a Thanksgiving-eve game night. The eve's of holidays are just as special as the holiday itself to our family. The holiday season just flies by, so why not make a big deal out of both days?
I do have a few good recipes stuffed up my sleeve! I plan to fill this little pumpkin with the most delicious dip ever and serve it with Nilla wafers!! And I'm also going to make Cranberry Brie Bites!

I recently saw these adorable headbands on line and wasn't interested in paying for them, so off to Michaels I went. I bought some suede, some feathers and used some old scrap booking embellishments to finish them off. You gotta have mommy and baby matching holiday attire ya know!

Oh! I am also thankful for my kitchen make-over!!!! It
is still a work in progress but it's almost done! Our kitchen cabinets have always been a bit too contemporary for our home. Josh has suggested painting them for a while and I was against it. Paint on wood is just so permanent, I get scared. Butttttttt, I found a few pictures online of Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint and I was sold on painting them. After googling the shit out of a ton of colors, I chose the color French Linen.
Here is just a sneak peek...
Of course now that gray/green wall need to be covered with wood and painting white right?! I thought so! 



  1. Ugh I remember last thanksgiving being preggo too....I barely ate anything and I couldn't even LOOK at meat without gagging lol And great job on the little Headband!

  2. I can't imagine not being able to eat Thanksgiving dinner! That must have been terrible! Oh, and again I want your house. Thanks!

  3. What a fun thanksgiving with a sweet little baby! She is so stinkin cute! Love that headband!

  4. A lot to be thankful for! I love the color of the cabinets. Wood painted white sounds good to me. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. And that is one gorgeous baby to be thankful for!!! Happy Thanksgiving!
