Thanks + Giving

click above to shop

Happy Friday, everyone! It is still so crazy to me that it's November - and it's been in the 70s here in Wilmington! I've been a little MIA the past couple of weeks - on Thursdays and Fridays until December, I am working on my continued education for my real estate license. Today is the final and test day for the first of my 3 continued education classes - but in 4 more weeks, the provisional status will be removed from my license! 

We kicked off the holiday season last night with a Friendsgiving with our friends that live in the area and it was a fun way to start off the holidays. Everyone brought a dish and we hung out for a few hours - it's always fun to do that with friends, and we are talking about creating a supper club once a month after all the excitement dies down after Christmas. But in the meantime, I can't get enough of the holiday decor that is in stores! It is unreal to me that we're only a couple of weeks away from Thanksgiving. I am keeping my pumpkins up on my front porch through the day of thanks, though my Christmas things may go up before then.

I am loving this festive decor - and some of it can be used until January! If you're looking for a fun a fall addition to your tablescape, this turkey is the perfect piece. It's always nice to take a hostess gift as well if you're heading out to a dinner party, and a bottle of wine encased in a pretty bag is an easy thing to take just to lett the host or hostess know you appreciate the invite.

I've also added a new tab to the navigation bar -- Holiday 2015! As of now, most of the tabs feature old posts or just a few things here and there, but they will be continuously updated until Christmas with some of my favorite gift ideas for guys, gals, parents, hostesses, and more + my favorite looks for the holiday season. Posts will go live here like normal, but I will be adding different pages as well that will be updated in real time as I find things that I love!

Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Friendsgiving sounds so fun! I'm looking forward to your gift guides since I never know what to gift my fiance and his family!

    Here's what you can do to help prepare for a healthy day the night before. You'll find that when you take care of most of this preparation before you go to sleep, you will be much more inspired to stick with your intended plan the following day. And that's what counts the most. Once you develop this healthy habit and stick with it consistently, planning out your healthy day the night before will become your ritual and those pounds will really start falling off your body.

  3. Oh boy I'm so excited for Thanksgiving - we go to my sister's house and the meal is always incredible!! I'm helping with decor :) Hope your last test goes well!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
