Most Likely

Here we are, the day before Thanksgiving and I’m in a bit of a conundrum. You see, a few weeks ago I posted (here) what I planned to wear for Thanksgiving. Remember that pretty floral dress? Yeah, me too. It would be perfect to wear to my sister’s home to enjoy a delicious dinner surrounded by all the people I love. Well, just like our weight changes after the holidays so do the best laid plans! We are now headed to my brother in law’s family’s farm for Thanksgiving dinner. It’s a nice piece of property with a pavilion, a lake for fishing, cows, and a small house. There will be a crowd of us so we’ll be using the pavilion. Did I mention it’s supposed to rain? And the hits keep coming…

Clearly I need to make some modifications to the outfit. This week was a one day work week, which I am highly in favor of btw, and I was thinking what I wore to work might end up being what I wear for Thanksgiving. It’s a pretty simple and casual outfit. My grey jeans, a white tee , waterfall cardigan (here or here), infinity scarf, and slip on sneakers (similar) are sure to keep me comfortable. If it gets too warm I can take off the waterfall cardigan. Most likely what I end up wearing with be something very similar to this outfit. See? I have no problem rolling with the changes, I mean honestly I’m about as flexible as peanut brittle, am I right?

All kidding aside, I am thrilled to be with my family and extended family at Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for and I am counting my blessings. Just for fun I thought I’d share the picture taken back in 1998 (I thought it was 1999 but that was wrong, I was pregnant with Collin in 1999) so you all could see my poor fashion choices.

I am super thankful to be home from work this week to enjoy my family. As I sit here typing I am listening to Nolan playing Wii bowling with my 12 year old niece Carly in the other room. I picked her up early this morning so we could make bath bombs, do a little baking, and a little shopping for Christmas decorations. Nolan and Collin joined us for lunch at Chipotle and I am just over the moon happy to be able to have lunch with them. Our kitchen reno is almost done, the last few items are being addressed and I cannot wait to share it with you! The best part? In this moment I want for nothing, my heart is full and happy, I hope yours is too.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    It makes me happy to know that your heart is full and happy!! I bet you and Carly had a ball. LOVE the throwback photo and that you’ll be surrounded by such loving family!! I think the outfit is spot on perfect casual, love that scarf, I have that one and I wear it all the time. You’re a doll and I am thankful for you!!! Happiest of Thanksgivings to you sweet friend!! Hugs!!

      Yes, Carly and I had a ball even if the majority of our bath bombs bombed! Ha! Oh well it was all in good fun. Aren’t photos just the best? This one was in Nolan’s baby book and when I see it I realize how special it is, our family wasn’t quite complete, we still had one more son to welcome, my brother and his wife would have two children. I also see how almost 20 years has aged my parents. I am most thankful that everyone in that photo is still alive and well, the best gift of all. Just like you my sweet friend, the best gift is having special people (you) in my life.

    Mrs R, a splendid post, loved the retro photo/outfit and that tear-jerker of a last line. Your plans for tomorrow sound so elegant, eating in a pavilion, maybe overlooking that fishing lake … Oh how glam is your stateside life. Your outfit switch looks perfect, pretty lady.
    Have a special day with your loved ones tomorrow, hugs, x.

      Awww, thanks Mary! I can assure you my writing skills have made the whole “eating outside at the farm” sound much more glamorous than it will actually be but I’ll be sure to include all the pictures and let you decide. I really like looking at the old photo, not of myself mind you, but my parents and siblings. Everyone looks so young! And my baby Nolan who is now 6 feet tall! It’s also weird to look at that photo and realize the same time the very next year I’d be pregnant with our 2nd son! Oh boy can I ever get lost in photos!
      Hugs to you my dear friend!

    You are so precious. Let me count the ways: Your heart is full (love that). Doing special things and making memories with your niece. Being content. Being flexible like “peanut brittle” (that’s a good one friend😂. I could go on, but I’ve got chores to do. I love the new Thanksgiving day outfit. It’s perfect, just like you. Enjoy these precious moments. Monday will be here much to quickly for all us college mama’s. Love ya’ friend!! and Happy Thanksgiving!! XOXO

      Awwwww you are so sweet you make me smile! We have been having the best week I just wish it would slow down. We don’t even know when Nolan is heading back to school yet or how he’s getting there! How’s that for denial? He may catch a ride or we’ll bring him but the traffic is AWFUL! In the meantime I am trying to chill out and enjoy each moment and not get crazy anxious about anything! We decorated for Christmas last weekend and I ordered Christmas cards today so I’m feeling pretty good. Oh and I am excited about my new eye cream!!!
      Have the best day with that fabulous family!
      Love ya friend!

    Sounds like you’re having the perfect week off work with your family. Making bath bombs sounds fun! I think that outfit will be PERFECT for the Thanksgiving plans you have! I love that waterfall cardi! We have 3 different days of Thanksgiving plans, so I am not sure what I am going to wear!! The throwback picture is sweet, lots of pretty blondes in your family!

      Thanks Carrie! Making bath bombs was fun but they didn’t all turn out very well which was a little frustrating. I hate spending money on lots of ingredients and then the project doesn’t work! We had lots of laughs though. Sounds like your family is going to have a blast – 3 days of plans, wow! Before we know it our oldest will be headed back to school so we have to figure that into our plans. Thanksgiving break is like the appetizer for Christmas break and now I can’t wait until he comes home for that!
      Enjoy your holiday!

    I love your new outfit! It will be perfect for Thanksgiving! I’ve made bath bombs with my daughter before and it is such a fun activity. She loved making and using them! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!

      Thanks so much Laura! Can you believe I’ve never used a bath bomb before? My niece is all about them though so I’ll be testing one of ours this weekend. Enjoy your day with that beautiful family of yours!
