Happy Monday

My Monday was happy.  How was yours?  I am watching Eat, Pray, Love and marveling at the Italian food and Julia Roberts of course.  I looovvee her and always have thought she was stunning.  She is.  Anyhow, I wanted to share some Thanksgiving pics as promised.  And although I have a busy week ahead of me with cleaning up and making crafts for Devs 1st birthday party Saturday, I am hoping to post outfit pics this week and/or gift guides.

So for Thanksgiving I cooked for 7 people.  And for 7 people, I cooked:

- homemade mashed potatoes
- homemade mac n cheese
- corn bread muffins
- biscuits
- cheesy potatoes
- carrots (with butter, a hint of brown sugar and thyme)
- cheesy broccoli
- candied yams
- green bean casserole

All of that in 4-5 hours!  It all turned out banging.  My dad and step mom brought the turkey and my mom and step dad brought the stuffing.  I enjoyed having them all at my home :)

 Dev going to the grocery store with me in the morning to get my last needed items, yes, I was one of those people.

Finally wore my vintage apron!

I worked with what I had to set the table, including my great grandmothers china, and I loved the way it turned out!

You can't see the pretty blue paper I used for the tags, but it ended up matching with everything.  <3

My silly dad.

After we ate and chilled for a bit, we rushed to Michaels uncles for Thanksgiving #2.  After all that, I had the laziest weekend of my life, which included sleeping way too much.  I regret it!  But speaking of sleeping, I need to get to bed for work tomorrow.  Hollaaa
