The beginning of an exciting week......






I love this week....just love it! It's the beginning to the whole holiday season. Besides going to the beach in the summer......this is the.best.time.of.the.year!




here's a pic of the foyer.......I don't have the right lighting I'm sure but the mirror is beveled glass, trimmed in a deep burgundy and gold. I think it really goes with the "whipped apricot"...haha! There catwoman, I said it!





Got my hair done this evening.....must get rid of gray!

picture of Maddox with his haircut.


I will start cooking on Wed.....hopefully getting out of work a little early.


here's the menu........we have 11 for dinner.



Rolls
Spoon Bread

Turkey and gravy

Tossed salad


Sweet Potato casserole
String beans
Carrots & garlic

Mashed potatoes
Roasted potatoes

Pumpkin pie cake
Johnny's fabulous ice cream desser


so you'll notice there is no stuffing.........none of us like that stuff! Also, so many potatoes but I love the sweet potatoes, Jake must have mashed and Jacquelyn must have roasted. It's Thanksgiving so I'm fine with pleasing everyone!

later........

Mmmm...fabulous menu!! I'm not a big stuffing/dressing fan, except for Gary's grandmother makes the most DIVINE you could ever imagine! I can't wait for that!! I'm going to contribute Cheesecake and a Potato Caserole to the meal (I'm actually blogging about the food tomorrow!! lol)

And, oh, I love the idea of Pumpkin Pie Cake. i'd love to hear more about that (I'm a big fan of pumpkin bread and pumpkin bars!)

Happy Thanksgiving dear heart! Have a wonderful day!

MAN! I Love your sense of Thanksgiving! next year I'll just send you my menu ;)
I don't like the stuffing, either, but we always have it in our table, since the rest of the family does. We had a great one! Glad to know yours was, too!
