I am not hosting Thanksgiving but I didn't want to forget the holiday. Here is a great post to help you prep if you are hosting Thanksgiving: Thanksgiving Prep. We have our own little traditions at home that I am excited about. I usually prep all the desserts which include my husband's favorite: pumpkin cheese cake and a caramel apple pie. Then I usually try something new as my third dessert. Last year it was sweet potato cupcakes from The Cupcake Diaries written by by
I am super excited to wear it!
Friday is also going to be a busy day. I fully do not believe in shopping on Thanksgiving. However I have no problem heading out early Friday morning to score some deals. I probably won't share to many of my deals because they will be Christmas presents! I will share that I have always had great deals at Target, Best Buy, Victoria's Secret (rumor has it undies will be 20 for $20) and New York and Co. I have done some of my online shopping already.
Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend I will be attending a young adult Advent Retreat. It will be a great way to step back out of the commercialized holiday and reflect on the holiday's true meanings. I have never been on this retreat so I will share more once I attend. I also plan on sharing our Advent traditions once I set up our candles etc. This year we are adding a Jesse tree to our traditions. If you do a Jesse tree please share how you do it, as it is new to me.
