The countdown to 2013 has begun! To give us the energy to make it through this marathon of goodwill and glitter, the patron saint of the holiday season - Her Holiness, Friday of the Black Order - has blessed us with a day just to carb load. And fat load. Probably salt load for good measure too.
So for this year's annual day of celebratory carb loading I'm hosting my own family for Thanksgiving. FOR THE FIRST TIME. Dun dun dunnnnn!!
It's not that dramatic - there's only about 6 of us at this par-tay so I'm not really worried. In fact I'm kind of excited. And excited about setting the table which is weird for me... I think I may have been possessed by the spirit of Sandra Lee because I shopped my house including all the secret closets I'd like to pretend aren't full and this happened:
Apparently the ghost of Sandra Lee wants me to have a Disney-esque Forest Noir theme for Thanksgiving and who can argue with that except for Taste and Logic? My family will be utterly confused. Possibly blinded by all the shiny things.
I hope y'all have a good holiday and make sure to let me know all the yummy things you ate because I want to eat them too.
I'll be back next week with holiday hijinks and hopefully a table that looks more like an adult set it and not Princess Sandra Lee.
