This Thanksgiving I feel so thankful for all the wonderful family and friends in my life. I am thankful to be close to most of them now and in a wonderful area to raise my boys. It has been a year of change (although isn’t every year?) and I will be missing my Grandfather this Holiday season, but I am thankful he is no longer in pain and depressed but up in heaven. I am blessed everyday with my wonderful boys and hubby. Sometimes I wonder when I am going to wake up from the dream because I certainly do not deserve them. I am thankful to be able to host a big family Thanksgiving this year. I love to host parties and I am just beyond excited. I have the decorations set, menu planned and boys outfits picked out 😉 … always important to me. I hope everyone is as excited as me to get all together. Family is everything.
I did a little mini trial of my place settings to make sure my chalkboard placemat craft looked as cute as the idea in my mind. I can’t wait to see it all together now. I thought I’d share some of the pics and a few other Thanksgiving ideas that I love. (I did forget to put silverware in my mini trial but you guys get the idea)I used these placemats I found on amazon and these chalkboard markers also from amazon to design the placemat boarder. Simple, easy and cute!
Here are a few of my favorite Thanksgiving ideas I have seen that I maybe planning on doing as well.
This weekend we were celebrating St. Patricks Day with the boys in downtown Tampa. Nice weather and a green river made for a very nice afternoon walk. On Friday I got the boys some St. Patrick’s Day stickers which was alot of fun. They just love stickers. The hubby is not a sticker fan.
Then we had to complete the fun by putting all the stickers on little brother. Oh these boys!
Off to Downtown… Cheers from us…
“Jake come take a nice picture with me.”
Fine I’ll just take one by myself.^At least hubby wanted to take a cute picture with me.^
We found this bench with a xylophone built in it. How cool is that?
Hope everyone had a fun and green St. Patrick’s weekend!
It’s my favorite non official holiday… THE SUPER BOWL! Although I am forever an Indianapolis Colts fan, I will be cheering for the Patriots this year. I am hoping for and predicting a good close game but I don’t think Matty Ice and the Falcons can take down the Patriots. Although Matty Ice is quite good, Bill Belichick has a pretty darn good defense and will have a good plan to stop the Falcons. On the other side of things, Tom Brady is already quite an extremely attractive man but since I have started following his facebook and instagram accounts, he seems like such a good daddy and hubby, which makes him even more attractive. So I am rooting for another Super Bowl ring for him to bring home to his cute little family. Also, in my many NFL fantasy’s, one includes a playdate with the Bradys (I think it would be so fun!) and another is playbook analysis with Bill Belichick. So I respect the Patriots quite alot.
PATRIOTS: 31 ATLANTA: 27
I thought I would share some Super Bowl Sunday party decor that I did last year. It was cute and fun. This year I am setting up the same table decor but doubling the attendance at my party. Last year the hubby was away on business and Liam wasn’t born. On the menu I have bacon wrapped smokies, baked raviolis , taco dip and a CHEESECAKE because I love football!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Happy Super Bowl and GOOOO COLTS! 🙂
