My First Thanksgiving {OHP!}

Do you all realize we are only two weeks (and one day) away from Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is actually my fave holiday; mainly because it's the kick off season to the holidays in general and I love that.

This year, I am hosting my first Thanksgiving dinner for the in-laws. On the mister's side, we actually celebrate turkey day the Sunday before so that the day of, we're not all running to two or three different dinners. Its actually a genius idea, I think! But since J and I have been married eighteen or so months now, I figured it was time to step up my turkey game, ya'll. I've never made a turkey but I do know how to decorate! I'm planning of course to decorate on a budget, which involves some creativity, but I am pretty excited about hosting! Get back with me in ten days and I may change my mind, however.
