It’s beginning to look a lot like Holiday Shopping time! I don’t know about you, but I have a love-hate relationship with physically shopping at department stores. In spite of the twinkling lights, the joyful music, and the festive decor, it can be stressful.
I know we are gearing up to start our Holiday shopping, if we haven’t already begun, yet. Something Scott and I like to do, that makes our shopping a lot less stressful, is to provide one another with a bunch of ideas on what we would like. I highly recommend for you, ladies, to consider this. We can just call it, A Fashionista’s Dream Christmas List. Unless of course, your husband, is amongst the 2% of men who are able to buy gifts for their wives, that will actually be used and not returned! (I made up that statistic, but I bet I’m close.)
So, you’re hosting Thanksgiving, this year? Congratulations! Or, shall we say, Good Luck? Last year was our first Thanksgiving at The House on High Street. I remember feeling excited and nervous. Thankfully, it was a success. I think the best advice I can give you is to plan ahead and pace yourself. I actually created my own Thanksgiving Countdown! So, here are some tips for you in preparing for one of the greatest holidays, ever. Have fun!
When I was a kid, mom made her Thanksgiving stuffing with liver. To this day, I cannot stomach liver. I’ve always loved the flavor of stuffing with Thanksgiving turkey and gravy. But, I remember the frustration of picking out the liver before getting to the good parts. Years later, as a young adult, I came across a variation that would not only change my preference for stuffing, but my mom’s long-standing, family recipe, as well! Stuffing with SAUSAGE!
