Is anyone else freaking out that it is November?  I'm not sure if thats because I could potentially have these babies in 8 weeks, or because Christmas is next month, and the thought of that is making me a little sick! Don't get me wrong, I am obsessed with the Holiday's, I just feel like time is flying by right now, and there are not enough hours in the day to get done, what I need to get done! With that said we have two weeks till Thanksgiving and it is truly one of my favorite holidays! I am a girl who loves tradition, and I don't do well when things are shaken up... Needless to say one time my dad decided to take us to a fancy restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner, and we haven't done it since, and I don't plan on ever doing it again. Its great for some, but it's not for me.... Since I have been married I have loved being able to help with some of the dishes. Below I have listed my go to's, that I bring every year that I promise are easy and don't disappoint! Hope you all are enjoying this wonderful season and remember to slow down and don't let it fly by!
