Gobble Gobble

The weekend is here! It's always a busy one making the final
preparations for Thanksgiving, getting your grocery shopping
done early, outfit planning, etc. (and packing for those that have
to travel). Wherever your holiday travels take you whether near
or far, have a safe weekend! Check back next week as we switch
to holiday mode...

Be a Gracious Guest

yesterday. Today, let's go over a little bit of etiquette. 

First things first, do not show up empty handed if you're over the
age of 22. If you're in high school or home from college, you
get a pass on this one. Anyone out of college and living on their
own should have the good graces to bring something. Anything
will do. You can buy it. You don't have to make it from scratch. 
But by all means, bring something

Secondly, if you're going to a friendly gathering, a distant relative's house, 
or trying to make a great first impression on your significant other's family, 
bring a hostess gift. This should be a given, but it is so commonly 
overlooked. Pick up a pretty bouquet of fresh flowers, grab a candle
at a local gift shop, or pick out a nice bottle of wine. But, again, don't
show up without something for the host(s). 

Lastly, the things that should be unspoken but we might need a 
friendly reminder of as we enter into the holiday season: don't be
that guest that's over served. Take it slow. Thanksgiving especially
is a long day. You have to make it to dinner time. Don't be on your 
phone the whole time. Be present. And most importantly, be comfortable! 
When you wear something that you're not comfortable in you will most likely 
be fidgety the entire time. 

You got this!

What to Wear... to Thanksgiving

The countdown is on... while the day after Halloween is usually the kick
off for Christmas in my family, we have one holiday getting in the way.
Thanksgiving is one week away! The question remains (and is a stresser
every year), what to wear?? You want to be comfortable while you indulge
in absolutely everything you avoid every other day of the year. It's a day of
good food and good family time, so what's the happy medium of looking
cute while still being able to participate should a backyard flag football game 
be proposed? 

In my family, we keep it casual. I stick to some sort of jeans and a trendy
sweater combo. Throw on boots, booties or a statement flat and call it
a day. Thank goodness looser jeans are in this season... that second piece
of pecan pie is definitely happening.

Remember, a family photo is definitely going to happen, so don't wear 
something you'll already regret next year.

The Holiday Collection

I've been about to jump out of my seat with excitement over the new 
Holiday Collection and it's finally time to share it with you! The wait
is over... we have new gift tags (both small and large), recipe cards
tons of new greeting cards, notecards, a new desk accessory (the padfolio),
and two new luggage tags that you and your bestie need asap.
