These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Thanksgiving is almost here and Christmas is right around the corner. It is the most wonderful time of the year!!


Today I am linking up with some amazing ladies for a little Thanksgiving AND Christmas happiness.

First up, let's talk Thanksgiving.

We are hosting a little Thanksgiving celebration at our apartment this year and I am pretty pumped about it. I have not been able to find whole Turkeys here so that is off the list (which is fine by me). So I am braistorming other meat options and I would love your ideas!

Here are a few recipes that look delish and have been added to the menu...

Mix and Match Mama's Mashed Potatoe Casserole. And you can make it ahead of time, just pop it in the oven the day of. Yes, please!

Pioneer Woman's Dressing. I do not think you can ever go wrong with one of Mrs. Drummond's recipes.

And no picture yet...but also my mama's Brown Sugar Green Beans. Yummm. Recipe to come soon after Thanksgiving!

And how cute is this??? The perfect centerpiece!

Now let's switch gears...to a little Christmas Cheer!
I am linking up for A Few of My Favorite Things Holiday Linkup Party. And today is the day to share MY Christmas list!
Roberto and I are not going to do gifts this year but it is always fun to make a list anyways! And hopefully to give YOU some fun ideas!
Fun, right?? I would be thrilled to find any of this under my tree!
I just cannot believe we are already talking about Christmas and that Thanksgiving is NEXT week?? It makes me so excited!
I hope you have a wonderful day friends! And don't forget to enter the CASH giveaway. A little extra Christmas shopping money would be soo nice, right?! Click here to enter!

  1. I love the centerpiece that you found! It's got some great color to it (not the traditional oranges etc) and I like it!
    I hope Santa brings you everything that you have on your Christmas list! :)

  2. Those fleece pajamas look super cozy, and the Clarisonic Mia is always welcome under any Christmas tree!

  3. Love all your Thanksgiving loves and your Christmas list is awesome. Those slippers look super comfy!

  4. I want a Clarisonic so bad! Also LOVE that sign with the Hillsong United song lyrics on it!

  5. Brown Sugar Green beans sound so delicious!! We always have a turkey, chicken, and a ham at our Thanksgiving (some family members are picky haha), maybe you can find one of those other options instead? And I'm totally with you on the 50mm lens, I've been wanting one for years!

  6. I have a green bean addiction so I cannot wait for the brown sugar recipe! YUM! Could you do ham instead of turkey? And I'm sure chicken is always easy to find!

  7. I think those slippers look so comfortable!!! I don't think I'd ever wear anything else!! I've heard of some people eating ham...but maybe that's more x-mas for you!

  8. That mashed potatoe casserole sounds amazing!!


  9. You will love the 50mm lens!! Hope Santa is good to you!

  10. My husband hates turkey so we always have to have a brown sugar glazed ham AND a turkey on Thanksgiving. You know what really irritates me? The ham is actually better. Haha! But... he makes both so I really can't complain...

  11. Love, love, love that print! One of my favorite songs! Also, I couldn't live without my 50 mm!

  12. You can NEVER go wrong with pioneer woman!!! And since thanksgiving will be just John and me this year, we are going to do a rotisserie chicken instead of trying to mess with a turkey! Easy and tastier (in my opinion :))

  13. Those Ugg slippers....I live in them :) And, I hope you get the lens, too!


I would love to hear from you!
