I’m not complaining, but there are noticeably fewer 30 Days of Thanks posts in my social feeds this year. Is it no longer trendy? Do we have less to be publicly grateful for?
Whatever the case, I’m wishing each and every one of you a blessed Thanksgiving and hope you all have much to be thankful for.
Whether you’re fortunate enough to be with family or having your own Friendsgiving; whether you’re avoiding shopping at all costs or braving the Black Friday crowds for that ultimate deal; whether you’re a hardcore vegetarian or meat maniac, I hope you’re able to enjoy the holiday and time with people you love.
Until next time, here’s an all-too-true take on how Thanksgiving changes as you grow up.
Gobble till you wobble, y’all.
The holiday season has been all hustle and bustle, so it’s been really nice to spend the last few days catching up with family and honoring our traditions.
From celebrating family mass to opening just one present (our ornaments), it’s these small comforts from home that fill my heart and make me so happy to be surrounded by loved ones.
Wishing you and yours a blessed holiday season, and hope you’re able to spend time with those you hold dear!
It’s that special time of year when families gather to feast, feud and frolic to the store for 1/2 off sweaters. Don’t you just love it?
- Magz Is Here: My favorite mom arrived last Friday and is here for the week. She’s seen and done so much already, but I’m looking forward to more QT together these next few days.
- Macy’s 88th Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade: It’s tradition. Watch the parade tomorrow at 9 a.m. EST (or record it on your DVR if you plan to sleep in like us). Can’t wait to see Papa Smurf, Snoopy and all the other iconic characters!
- Terrific Tours: Our first excursion was us a daylong trip through Sonoma’s wine country with Terrific Tours. I can’t recommend their services enough — we saw FIVE wineries, tasted more than 20+ varietals and had entertaining stories throughout the day!
- “All About That Baste” – The Holderness Family: Magz introduced me to this family foursome, known for silly song parodies. I think Meghan Trainor would be proud, #noskinnybritches and all.
Wishing you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving weekend!
This week’s obsessions are simple: All things Christmas! I hope those who celebrate are enjoying time well-spent with family. The music, the decorations, the gifts … they’re all extra perks to having a blessed holiday season and memories with your loved ones.
Stay tuned for next week’s year-end recap and some photos of our celebrations. Till then, I hope you all have much to smile about!
My favorite month is coming to a close, and I’m nothing short of depressed. The best holiday of the year is tomorrow, but it will only be upstaged come Friday with Christmas countdowns and far-too-early fa-la-las.
So because I’m bitter (like my friend, Ben), I’m totally tapping out and just going to post the only thing on my mind:
Talk about #firstworldproblems. What costume are you wearing this year? Mine had mixed reviews — you can check it out here tomorrow! And Happy Hallo-week!
Halloween is the only holiday — besides my birthday (an actual holiday, not like every tween who thinks her random day of birth is celebrated worldwide) — for which I begin a countdown weeks prior. I love the costumes, candy and creative decor … despite being easily spooked and loathing scary movies.
Enter “Hocus Pocus,” the perfect Halloween movie.
The only real reason you need to watch it is, well, because it’s Hocus freaking Pocus. But in the event that you’re not yet convinced, BuzzFeed has put together 23 reasons why it’s the best Halloween movie of all time.
I’ve said it before, but SJP is in her best role ever here. Between her silly antics, Bette Midler’s teeth and Kathy Najimy’s crazy expressions, it’s cinematic magic.
Fun fact: When my DVR has a meltdown last year, I was most upset about losing this movie from my stored library. I promptly purchased the DVD that following day.
Hello, Sanderson sisters. Goodbye, productivity.
