What have I done...

There are pros and cons to living in the same town with my parents and Jeff's parents. (mostly pros) However, the cons are... I rarely have a big holiday meal at my own house. We house hop and I don't have to prepare a thing. (wait, that's a pro) But, I guess I have been feeling a little guilty that I want my kids to remember a Thanksgiving or two around their own table. I mean, I'm an adult now, shouldn't we start our own traditions? Soooo.... this year I announced Thanksgiving would be at our house. Then a week later I panicked... Yesterday I went to the grocery and bought a turkey- just a turkey. I left the store broken out in hives without potatoes, stuffing, green beans or really anything else to go along with it. Would I be the first person to serve turkey AND order pizza?
Anyhoo... In an effort to pull it together I decided to concentrate on the things I can do well- a centerpiece and place cards...
I could go Mom of the Year and make this fruit bird... did I mention when I announced Thanksgiving was at our house my kids all groaned? This might win them over...

I do love an eclectic, organic vibe...
This is how my table usually looks at Christmas. (I do host Christmas morning brunch every year) I could mix this up for Thanksgiving. There would be plenty of room for pizza boxes and paper plates  turkey and fine china.


and place cards...( I can so make those!) Lovin these...
yes... I can rattle can a leaf AND I have good handwriting...

Now we're talking... love the look!

So pretty and yummy!

OK.... I can do this. I'm going back to the store today. And even if the meal is bad, the table will be gorgeous (fingers crossed)! I promise I'll post pics! I have 6 days to figure this thing out...
If you see me wondering around the grocery, help a sister out- an encouraging word will do...-A

Happy Friday! 
Bye, bye birdie,

This is simple economics. The online store does not need to pay for the space at the mall, the cache of replica watches uk and the price of presence. So, when you see that replica watches sale at the mall, check its price online before you purchase at the brick and mortar store. So, let's take a look at the five best luxury watch deals that you can find online for this rolex replica sale category for men.
