Please forgive me as I try to figure out how to become a blogger. It is a skill to figure out how to document your life while still living it authentically. I have a terrible, awful, POS digi camera, however I do believe Santa is going to rectify that problem in the near future; AKA my mom and I found a sweet Black Friday deal and a new Canon PowerShot SX130 will soon be mine.
Having said all that, I did con my sweet, sweet manfriend into playing photographer for me, and I have some OOTD pics. My Thanksgiving outfit came together at the very last minute. I had been planning on wearing my Michael Kors brown leggings with a paisley tunic, but when I put it on it felt like something a grandma would wear in Atlantic City while sitting at a slot machine and smoking a cigarette. I guess I wouldn't necessairily mind being that person on somedays, but not on Thanksgiving. No, no, no.
This is the outfit I ended up going with:
|Sweater: Target, Belt: Abercrombie & Fitch via Thrift|
|Boots: Rocket Dog from Macy's|
|Peacock Earrings: Gift from my bestie|
I love cooking. Every year since I can remember I've been in charge of mashed potatoes. I LOVE mashed potatoes. They're not something we eat in my house on a regular basis so they feel more special on Thanksgiving. I tried The Pioneer Woman's recipe last year, and although they were good, the potatoes were a little soupier than I'd like. This year I made sure to accurately measure my half-and-half and they turned out fluffy, lush and indulgent. This recipe calls for a stick and a half of butter and a package of cream cheese. Holla atcha heartattack!

I think I'm gonna keep it rolling with the top 5s.
TOP FIVE THINGS I LIKE MOST ABOUT THANKSGIVING
1) Tons of food = tons of leftovers
2) Hearing my mom tell the same stories as she watches the WGN Bozo (the clown) special
3) Drinking irish coffee and looking at Black Friday ads
4) Watching my beloved dog, Dixie, beg successfully all day long for turkey bites
5) Finally having someone to spend the holiday with. I am so thankful to have Gerald by my side. Sneaking away to have dessert and Irish coffee with him was my favorite part of the day.
