Trim the Tree Thursday -and an update from last night
I love to look at everyones Holiday decorations and I know I'm not alone! So starting next Thursday I am going to host Trim the Tree Thursday. You can post pictures of your Christmas tree, your fall wreath, whatever holiday decorations you choose!
If you would like to be included simply post a comment and let me know and I will list your blog! Ooh, I am super excited!
Last Night After talking with my several family members, several times each, we have decided on a date that will work. (this was way too hard) November 21'st @ 5:00, yes we are having Thanksgiving on a Friday night. This simply was the only day that would work! Good news is that I will have an extra week to get ready.
I also decided against the buffet table. I had it in my head that I had to put it up. I always have for big get togethers. However, last Christmas I got my oh so loved island, and now I don't need a buffet table! Hooray!
I did have a scavenger hunt in the basement and still cannot find my chair covers! I hate to see a folding metal chair without one. Maybe I will find them by the 21'st-we shall see!
The guest list has all been called, the parlor table has been set up, the menu has been finalized, my list was finished!
Tonights To Do's: Go to the Gym Don't forget that during this busy time we still need to take care of our bodies!
Finish Laundry Put in a load this morning, when I get home I will finish it. I also need to clean the laundry room-spick and span!
Make Frozen Cranberry Salad You can make this ahead of time and have it ready to go! I just pull it out about 5min before we serve dinner. I am going to make a few tonight and have them ready!
Frozen Cranberry Salad 14oz can Eagle Brand Milk 16oz can whole berry cranberry sauce 20oz can crushed pineapple, drained 8oz tub of cool whip Mix together, pour into 9x13 dish & freeze
Those "cranberry haters" in our family even love this! Although it is called a "salad" it is much like a dessert. I don't really tell them otherwise ;)

Hostess with the Mostess...at least thats the goal!
I am a twenty something (would love to say I could still round down to twenty, oh well, sad day) living in East Tennessee in "Mayberry" and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else! Things are slower, quieter, and kinder here.
I love to "put on the dog" whenever my husband can handle it. I am married to my favorite person who unfortunately doesn't share the same love of entertaining that I do. How unfortunate is that!
I am a planner. I love to plan. I will plan everything-even your life if you will let me!
This blog is mainly for me to sort out my thoughts and have all my plans in one place. I think it seems so organized to have a blog. Therefore, I must have one!
