Thankful

Simple Thanksgiving Outfit

What would you do if you woke up and only had the things you were thankful for the day before? 

This past Sunday I visited my sister's church with her and the pastor asked that question, and it really hit me. I usually think of myself as pretty thankful person, and am usually conscious that I am fortunate in a lot of ways, but if I stop and image myself only having what I've taken time to be specifically thankful for, well, I wouldn't have much. It may be cheesy and cliche this time of year to talk about being thankful, but I do think it's an important tradition. Things get crazy, and it's easy for even good things to feel like burdens sometimes, but maybe if we stop to take the time to be thankful for them, even when they do feel heavy, it will make them feel just a little bit lighter.

I'm especially thankful for puppies, even when they insist on being in all of your photos. 

3 Easy Thanksgiving DIYs to do this Weekend

3 Easy Thanksgiving DIYs

Pumpkin Puree

If you haven't made your own pumpkin puree from scratch before, you have to try! It's super easy, and so tasty. Don't have a food processor? No problem, I use my little ninja blender and just do it in smaller batches. The best part is how pumpkin-y your whole house smells, and also the bragging rights when you can say you made the whole pumpkin pie completely from scratch! Gotta love bragging rights.

Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! I thought I'd share just a couple iPhone snaps I took while setting up and prepping for the day (I always mean to take some during the actual festivities, but never actually do). This year was one of my favorite Thanksgivings. Beides my brother being away at college this year, most of the family was actually able to make it, and it actually felt fairly relaxing – even as the hostess! 

This year I also really focused to do the whole "work smarter, not harder" thing. And while I still insist on making a lot of the food from scratch, this year I have done a lot much better with planning and buying things I need ahead of time, instead of scrambling the week of. I ended up ordering these plates off amazon, and they were perfect! A huge bonus too was that they're disposable, because who wants to spend two days setting up, and then a whole other day just doing dishes? I also snagged these utensils from Whole foods when I saw them months ago, and they worked out really well too. I took huge advantage of those big old trees in our front yard and used clippings for decorating. 

How was everyone else's Thanksgiving? Are you prepared for the Holidays coming up?! 

A Pheasant Afternoon

    F21 Shirt (thrifted) // Old Navy Cardigan (thrifted) // Diane Von Furstenberg Skirt (thrifted + altered)
                                                          Gap Ballet Flats // Thrifted Belt

I've had this skirt sitting in my "to alter" pile for probably a year, and I have no idea what took me so long – it's so adorable! I mean, pheasants on my skirt? Yes please. It was a few sizes too big and hit an awkward length on me, but both were pretty simple fixes. So I'm pretty sure this is going to end up being my Thanksgiving outfit since it's by far the most festive skirt in my closet now:)
