What I Wore & Turkey Trot Link Up

Today's a busy post...

First let's all get in the Thanksgiving mood with answering a few questions for the Turkey Trot Link Up.

Yes, I am lame and did not answer them in a vlog...


Just not enough hours in a day.


1. What do you look forward to more: the food, football or parades?
None of the above.  I look forward to being with my family that I never get to see, hanging out all day, playing outside, lots of drinking, and lots of laughs! 
2. What is your favorite non-traditional Thanksgiving Day dish?
The dip! We are all appetizer lovers! Spinach Artichoke, Kevin's Dip, Corn & Cheese dip... yum yum yum! 
3. After dinner, is it football or a nap?
Its time to play outside! I cannot remember a year that it was too cold to get outside.  We usually head out for some football or basketball, watch the boys fly their model air planes, go for walks... 
4. Do you watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Which is your favorite float?
I honestly had no idea there was a parade! 
5. Where do you go to celebrate and eat your big meal? Who is there (family, friends)?
My mom's family is all over the country and we try to get together for Thanksgiving at someones house.  This year is at my Aunt CeCe & Uncle Davids in Joplin. (We have not been back since the tornado hit and I am curious to see how the town is doing. My family was lucky to not have been effected at all by it. Their house, places of employment and schools were all fine, never lost electricity or water.  My Aunt and cousin work for Joplin school district though (elementary school teachers) and have seen alot of their students greatly effected.)  My parents, sister and boyfriend are headed that direction.  Brother and sister n law from Seattle, Grandma & Cap from FL, and Aunt & Uncle and kids are FLYING THEIR OWN PLANE from NC. Its kind of scary to think of them flying themselves... Lets all think happy thoughts! 
6. What is your favorite turkey day dessert?
Again, not a big fan...  I like pumpkin in my drinks but not as food! I prefer the chocolaty  sugary desserts and those for some reason never seem to make it to Thanksgiving.  I would much rather eat more dip and beer! 

And now for What I Wore Tuesday...

Sweater: Eddie Bauer.  My mom just gave my 2 sweaters that she had bought but decided she did not like because she said they were too long in length.  My mom is only about 3 inches shorter than me.... I think the length is perfect for me so I happily took them from her! 
Shirt: Merona from Target
Jeans: Lauren Conrad from Kohls.  I LOVE them! 
Shoes: From Nordstroms... I bought these for my brother's wedding over 3 years ago and I have worn them so much I wore off the brand name... They probably should be thrown away now, but I am bad about parting with shoes. They are just the perfect light gold color that goes with everything!

And a little update... 

You might remember that back in September I received this dresser for free and contemplated how to paint it... 

Well I ended up painting it white because I had it on hand... 

I did try to do some outlining in a fun color but I could not do it cleanly and just went back to all white. 

I can always try again down the road. 

Overall I am happy with my new white dresser for the guest bedroom! 


  1. What pumpkin drinks are you hiding from me??? Love the sweater!

  2. You are looking AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Shoes are adorable - I love them to death. LOL

  3. Awesome dresser! What a great transformation! And definitely bring on the dip and beer!

  4. BEST link up answer: I didn't know there was a parade.

    YES! hahaha

    And can I buy that dresser from you? I am in love.
