Happy Thanksgiving

Both the hubs and I have family coming in town today, let the fun begin!!
We have lots to be thankful for this year and lots on our agenda this long weekend.  

My husband finally gets to try a restaurant he has been dying to go to...

a pre feast run

This is our first year ever hosting Thanksgiving.  The hubs is in charge of the turkey

and I am making a few side dishes like this

and these

and this

My sister who was told she would never have babies of her own and adopted the sweetest boy from Korea 2 years ago is pregnant!!  yeah!!  I have hosting a little "sprinkle" for her on Friday.

She did not find out if she is having a boy or a girl so my party favors are this...
but in a cute brown paper bag.

Our botanical gardens are all decked out for the holidays so we are going to the gardens at night...

It's Thanksgiving weekend so we have to do a little shopping...

and on Sunday, after everyone has left I am going to bakeapolozza with my friends.  It is held at a local cooking school and we will spend the entire afternoon baking Christmas cookies...

and drinking a little this...

Have a beautiful weekend and Happy Thanksgiving!!
