The Thanksgiving Preparation Going on at Our House

Did I mention it?  We're cooking Thanksgiving dinner at our house for the first time ever.  I'm REALLY excited!  ...granted, I'm sort of taking the easy way out to start off.  I omitted the dreaded turkey.  We decided on ham.  (I'm sorry, Shaun!)  But it will be ham with pineapple and cherries and home-made apple jam and all sorts of deliciousness.  I'm super excited.  Alejandro's cooking the ham.

Yeah, did I mention I'm taking the easy way out?

I am (as in yours truly) cooking most of the other sides including a handful of recipes from The Pioneer Woman's website, the homemade apple jam, and sweet potato casserole that ought to be named "marshmallow and brown sugar with a little bit of sweet potato" casserole.  But that's ok.  Thanksgiving dinner was never meant to be healthy, as I'm discovering.

We got the itch to rearrange furniture, so I've got pictures of our huge bedroom (my friend Melissa calls it a runway) and how the light falls through the window just perfectly.  I love it!  Mostly I love the light.  And lots of open floor space.  And the fact that we put the coffee maker in there.  Oh yes, we did.  Pictures to come soon.

Oh, and wanna know what else?!

Of course you do.

Tell your friends!! The day after Thanksgiving, I'm having a sale on everything Mary Kay! For those of you crazies who love the midnight deals and the after-Thanksgiving-shopping experience, but without the 2 a.m. waiting in line bit...  this one's for you.

Discounts will be based on the time I receive your order, complete with payment.  (I can accept all major credit cards, check or cash - although delivering check or cash at those hours may be challenging, and I might be snoring. Ha!)

Ordering online is the easiest, I think, so you can do that securely here:

Isn't that fun!?  I thought so.  :)  It's all because I'm just so stinkin' THANKFUL FOR YOU!!  

Alright, off I go to make some apple jam.  In T minus 42 hours, we're eatin'!
